  1. We had an incredible 2 weeks walking the Manaslu circuit. From the first meeting the owner NJ was very attentive and listened to what we wanted, adjusting the length of the original walk to suit our time constraints.

    He picked up our bags from our hotel for us, advised us on what gear to pack, lent us walking sticks, puffer jackets and sleeping bags and advised us where to buy extra gear from which turned out to be the best priced.

    Our guide Sanjib was fantastic and we would recommend requesting him if you book here. His knowledge of the area was impressive and he seemed highly regarded and respected by all the other guides. He went out of his way to make sure we got our food first and extra portions if needed. He was patient and caring of us and always walked with me at the back at my pace and would help me through the tricky sections. He carefully monitored us when we were in the altitude sickness zone to ensure we stayed well enough to cross the pass. He even managed to get us crampons off another guide which we would recommend taking for the pass. He woke us up when we didn't have an alarm each morning and made us keep our heads warm at all times. He also took the time to hand draw us maps on other walks we were planning on doing once we had finished the circuit.

    All in all we were very happy with our trek and were very grateful Sanjib got us across the pass. The scenery gets better every day you walk and the only 4wd track to walk is on the first half day.

    We are looking forward to the traditional dinner NJ takes you to upon returning to kathmandu.
    Thank u Sanjib and Nepal Planet Treks
