Manaslu Circuit Trek reviews

Manaslu Circuit & Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek"
October 16 to 02.November 2017 Chandra (Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt.Ltd.) has organized us Manaslu Circuit and the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek incl. Guide and porter. Everything worked smoothly. Chandra already arrived at the airport to pick up in Kathmandu. In the evening there was a Nepalese "Welcome Dinner" with Chandra in the traditional dances were presented. We found this very great! In our hotel, a preliminary took place, in which we again Chandra told all the necessary information for our trek and our guide was presented to us. All transfers by taxi, bus and jeep organized by Chandra and functioned smoothly. 
During the trek, our guide and our porter took care of everything. They were very friendly and competent. The accommodations were always booked by our guide in advance so we could always equal to the day's destination in our "room". There were in addition to three meals snacks, such as cookies or candy bars and every night fresh fruit. We really enjoyed the trek and it was a fantastic experience. For us, the Manaslu Trek was the right choice because we were able to experience one of the least touristy developed areas with Tibetan influence. We highly recommend Chandra and his team; they do a very good job!

Je recommande fortement Himalaya Guide Nepal.
J'ai eu une très bonne expérience de trek autour du Manaslu avec notre guide Dinesh Gurung et porteur Dipak Gurung. Ils ont fait tout leur possible pour nous faire sentir comfortable et pour répondre à tous nos besoins. Ils avaient une très bonne connaissance des hébergements, récents changements du sentier, et des dangers potentiels.
L'expertise de notre guide nous a permis d'avoir un séjour plaisant en toute sécurité. Ce trek nous a non seulement permis de découvrir des paysages magnifiques mais aussi d'apprendre sur la culture nepalaise grâce à notre guide.
Chandra à aussi fait un super travail en organisant le séjour depuis kathmandu.

We had a great experience with Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. The company was great to communicate with. They were quick to answer all our questions. 
Our guide and porter were super friendly and helpful. We feel they went the extra mile to make us feel welcome, safe and comfortable. The guide was really knowledgeable about the circuit and told us a lot about the mountains as well as Nepalese cultural and tradition. His English was good and talking to him was a pleasure. Our porter did a great job carrying our packs. He had reasonably good English too, making an effort to speak to us in English. We were impressed as the most other porters didn't speak any English.
The trek had some spectacular views and was really well organized. Each day felt like the perfect amount of activity to keep us amazed and be not too tired while still physically challenging enough. 
We highly recommend Himalaya Guide Nepal and wouldn't hesitate use their services next time in Nepal.

“Manaslu Circuit Trek 2016”
We had a great Manaslu circuit trek thanks to Chandra! We had a limited amount of time in Nepal and had to organize over the internet. Chandra suggested an itinerary and was very flexible and attentive to everything that we wanted. He expertly put everything together for us so that we were able to leave right after our first night in Kathmandu. Not a worry in the world, just a great trek where everything went right and we were free to take in the amazing scenery. Definitely recommend Chandra’s companies, he made our trip!

Chandra helped me a lot during the hike in Manaslu Circuit Trek 2014, that Chandra was funny most of time our hike was much more easier with Chandra help at the tea houses - the communication with the locals and the navigation during the trail.
One time we were a bit worried actually the night before the Larkye Pass 5163m but our guide Chandra prepared us well for that hard part, so we felt us in safe on the whole trail.  
Thanks Chandra.
