  1. Hi there,
    Im a spanish mountaneer looking for partners to join me in Makalu trekking. I have been a couple of years ago climbing some mountain in Nepal in khumbu and annapurna valleys and this time i would like to take it easier and enjoy doing a trekking.
    My plan is to enjoy the mountain walking with the village and own culture tourism without being focused only in climbing.
    I would like to go with someone if tis possible to share the experience!!
    I am 32 years spanish mountain lover , easy going who loves being outdoors and cooking and eating so much!!
    I have seen that you are going in the similar dates so maybe we can arrange someething, eventhough the plans are different!!
    Talk to you

    • Hi Adur, just to let you know I have posted several trips on this forum – I have added Annapurna Base Camp in September, then the Manaslu Circuit + Annapurna circuit after that (including a side trip to Nar – Phu and also Tilicho Lake). Someone has said they could be my trekking partner for the Manaslu circuit etc. (starting at the start of October). Would you be keen for any of those options? I have thought about my plan really carefully so ideally I would follow it….would you like to join me in Mustang in August?

  2. hi annie!!
    I’ve already been in annapurna and manaslu area climbing some 6000s pics! Also doiing some vivacs at tilicho lake area!!
    I spent some days in mustang free entrance villages too, resting in that expedition and is not my favourite destination to be honest.
    I appreciate your answer and hope you can enjoy in those trips!!
    I will try to find out someone to do some trekking around Makalu BAruntse area!!
    good luck and if you need any help dont hesitate to contact me
