  1. Hey Benjamin, I’m in Kathmandu and thinking to go around Manaslu at that time, but also waiting to hear from a German who seemed keen to join. I also think I want to see the Tsum Valley after reading a bit about it, but it looks like that’s not on your schedule. Anyway, if you haven’t started for Pokhara yet, and want to have a coffee or something, let me know. You can call me if you like at 98030-46354. Thanks, Greg
