  1. Hi James,

    I’m currently looking for trekking routes in Nepal.

    I’ll probably go to Kanchenjunga till mid November. And would love to check Manaslu area afterwards.
    Having a small group and just sharing the cost of the mandatory guide would be perfect since we have more freedom on the way.

    I’m an experienced hiker too but like as well to enjoy nature on the way and am not really keen on following strictly a scheduled road…

    Let me know if you think nov 15 would be too late for you…

    • hi kevin, I could probably delay a bit,maybe until 13 not sure about delaying until 15th
      have you seen the dates for the manaslu race?14 to 24 th ,so would be better to depart by the 12th
      regards james

  2. I plan manaslu in november too.
    For me the best starting dates for Manaslu would be from the 21st of november, but I will come directly to Manaslu/Jagat from the Ganesh Himal.
    So, Kevin if you leave KTM at the 18th of november it would fit.
    Have a look on my plan.

  3. Hi James,
    I fly in on the 7th and need a few days to sort my jet lag out. Optimally I could be ready to join you on the 11th, bit if necessary, the 10th is doable. I am looking for a guide only trek as well. I don’t hike/trek with blinders, I want to soak it all in. John

    • the 11th is fine,john.or even 12th if youd prefer
      are you interested in going into tsum valley too?

  4. Thanks, sounds good.
    Tsum – I’m in Nepal for a month but wanting to explore other areas, so I could only commit to the main Manaslu trek. let me know if that’s a deal breaker. BTW, how many days you are expecting to spend on Manaslu?

  5. Sorry it’s late, disregard the question re length. I see it

  6. Hello James,

    I am interested in doing the Manaslu Circuit starting around the 8.11. I am relatively flexible with the dates. I have some trekking experience in Corsica and Ladakh. I like to keep a decent pace and start early with enough time to stop and take some nice photos. I have a month in Nepal and would be interested in doing side treks or something else afterwards too.

    Look forward to hearing from you,

    Matt

    • Hello Matt,
      I don0’t know if you have found a group yet. I am flying into Kathmandu on the 3rd of November and looking to join others hiking the Manaslu circuit and Tsum valley. I will finish Manaslu at Dharapani, from where I will continue on the Annapurna Circuit. I have hiked in Morocco, Jordan, Italy and was in Ladakh 2 years ago. I have five weeks in Nepal. It would be great to find other with whom to share the costs.

      Best,
      Paul

  7. looks like 12/13 nov start
    ill be in Everest region until then

  8. Hi James,

    Are you still looking for people to join the hike? Did you decide whether or not you will be doing the Tsum valley, I would be interested in doing that if you are.

    Best,
    Kyle

  9. Hello guys, i have couple of option for you guys to join for only Manaslu or Manaslu Tsum valley both?I do have a guy from UK (33 years old fit guy) arriving on 4th Nov and willing to trek Manaslu Tsum valley for 17/18 days on 6th and another one is arriving on 6th and willing to start trek on 7/8 Nov only Manaslu circuit within 14 days( she is from Canada, 23 years old fit lady). As you guys know very well Manaslu trek need minimum 2 people to obtain permits and trek, could you please let me know if you are interested with any option?Thanks for your reply in advance.Raj

    • Hi Raj,
      I am flying into Kathmandu on the 3rd of November and looking to join others hiking the Manaslu circuit and Tsum valley. I would prefer to begin on 7/8 at latest and will end at Dharapani, from where I will continue on Annpirna CircuitI would like to join a few other people for company and to share the costs. I am fit, and have hiked and guided in Morocco, Jordan, Italy. I was in Ladakh 2 years ago. I can adjust my pace to suit the group. I have five weeks in Nepal.

  10. Namaste dear Paul, would you mind to start on 6th Nov? Regarding Annapurna you will find many people on the way.I mean you do not need to have partner since Manaslu. So would mind to start on 6th??Is there some specific reason you can not start on 6th?Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you soon.Best regards,raj

  11. Namaste dear Paul,thank you for your comment and would you mind to start on 6th since you are arriving on 3rd? You will find many people for Annapurna anyway.So you do not need to have partner since Manaslu. i mean you will get plenty of people from Dharapani. So I would like to request you could we start on 6th?It could be great favor and great fun to start on 6th.If there is any reason you could not start on 6th, could you please kindly let me know?Thanks

    • I could start the Manaslu Circuit on the 6th, but would like to do Tsum Valley as well. I plan to continue from Dharapani on the Annapurna Circuit after that alone. Do you have other people for Manaslu starting on the 6th?
