Wir hatten geplant, den Manaslu Circuit als Tea House Tour zu machen. Während der Suche nach einem Guide wurde uns die Agentur empfohlen und können die Agentur auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.  Wir waren mit unserem Guide Tika Rai sehr zufrieden. Auf der Tour haben wir gesehen, was wir an ihm hatten. Er hat alles bestens für uns organisiert, er kannte alle Tea Houses und hat, dort wo es überfüllt war vorab reserviert. Er kümmerte sich wirklich rundum, achtete auf die Zubereitung unseres Essens, informierte uns über Kulturelles und gab uns eine kleine Einführung in den nepali Lifestyle.  Er ging gut auf unsere Wünsche ein, so konnten wir an manchen Tagen unser Laufpensum ausweiten. Er organisierte dann problemlos alternative Tea Houses für uns. Unser Treck war nicht ganz einfach, da es fraglich war, ob wir den Larke Pass passieren können, nachdem es eine Wintereinbruch gegeben hatte. Wir entschieden gemeinsam, dass wir das probieren wollten und kamen schließlich gut über den Pass. Ein großer Dank an Tika, der uns eine tolle Zeit am Manaslu ermöglicht hat.

Cholandra is an amazingly fit person. I’ve seen him balancing on one foot in the middle of a rushing river carefully setting stoes so we could cross. He never once slipped doing this long task. His sweet caring personality was always refreshing.

Trip Note


Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can takes long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimizes the fuel used and to make campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveler so, just leaving foot-print on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradables which you had.
