Manaslu Trekking - Nepal

In October/November 2005, we made a very exciting trekking in Nepal. A photo impression can be found here (15 minutes slide show - 48 MB). Another slide show with Nepali people can be found here (8 minutes - 16 MB). Click on OK for the unregistered version of MySlideshow. You may stop the slide show with Escape.
Some data about our trip we made together with our friends Aafke and Leo (still another Gang of Four). The trekking around the Manaslu would take 19 days walking: from the lowest point in Ghorka at 500m to the highest point the Lakya pass at 5250 m and then down again. The trekking was arranged by HT Wandelreizen.
For our group of four, we had 2 Nepali guides, 2 cooks and a helper, and 18 porters to carry all luggage, fuel and food. After two third of the trekking – in the base camp just at 4550 m before the pass – we could not continue because there was too much snow. We had to go back and eventually needed two extra days. So we were walking 21 days usually from half past seven till around four with one and a half hour lunch break. Quite heavy but also very beautiful.

Dear Travellers,
!!Namaste and warm Greetings from Himalayan Country Nepal!!


My name is Sanjib Adhikari. As an independent trekking guide and tour operator in Nepal, I would like to introduce myself to you.
I was born and grown up in the rugged and remote district in the Central Himalayan region. I started my career in the adventure tourism at the very young age after completing my high school level studies, working for different trekking companies for seven years in different capacities sometimes as porter, assistant guide and now working as an Independent trekking guide. I have already obtained trekking guide license from the ministry of tourism, government of Nepal.
I have guided many international groups especially from Europe, USA, Canada, Australia in Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Mustang, Dolpo, Kanchanjunga, Makalu, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and Helambu regions in Nepal and Mt. Kailash, Lasha in tibet also Ladak and Sikkim in India and have thus gained diversified experience and extensive knowledge on geography, religion, culture, local flora and fauna and on environmental issues in the areas where I personally organized the treks. My first experience on many trekking routes has made me an expert on making unique trekking itineraries as per the tastes, interests and budget of the western clients. For those international trekkers who want to climb high mountain passes and peaks, I can also organize this challenging and rewarding adventure. My experience in adventure tourism includes climbing to Mera peak, Island peak, Kalapathar, Gokyo peak, Tseryo ri and I have led expeditions across many high passes in Nepal, Larkye pass, Ampulapcha Pass, Chola pass, Renjula pass, Tashilapcha pass, Ganjala pass, thorong pass, Tilicho pass, (Mesokantola pass).
There are many types of treks available in Nepal, ranging from relaxed easy trekking where you can experience Nepalese Culture and Village life staying overnight in local lodges (tea-houses) in popular regions, to remote and restricted areas trekking that are off the beaten track and seldom visited by foreigners. All treks offer spectacular scenery and a good experience about Nepalese culture. If anyone wants to have tailor made treks, I can meet their requirements.
From time to time I keep upgrading my skills and knowledge by taking refresher trainings on safety, sanitation, first–aid, emergency rescue, hygiene and cooking. I am fluent in English, Chinese and computer literate. I can explain all tourism related topics to the best of my knowledge.
My clients have been very pleased with my professional guiding services, and you may read some of their comments on my website. Please contact me at the email address listed below if you have any questions or would like to discuss a possible trek in Nepal! I will look forward to hearing from you!

Lantang Gosaikunda Trek


The Langtang-Gosainkunda region is a collection of Sherpa Valleys north of Kathmandu, close to the Tibetan border. The rough road now reaches as far as Dhunche, only a day’s drive from Kathmandu. Yet, despite this, Langtang remains a relatively less trekked area. Bill Tilman, a famous explorer and climbing partner of Eric Shipton, described Langtang as one of the world’s most beautiful valleys. We exit by passing the holy lake of Gosainkunda and crossing the Laurebina La (4100m). Here, you will have excellent view into Tibet and meet Hindu pilgrims before gradually dropping down the ridges and driving back to Kathmandu.

Itinerary:

Day 01: Drive Kathmandu to Dhunche
Day 02: Trek to Thulo Syabru (2210m)
