Useful Info

11 Days Manaslu Circuit Trek - Key highlights:

  • Trek under the shadows of Manaslu [8,163m], the eighth-highest peak on earth
  • This is a rough-cut Off-the-beaten trail, less crowded than Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit. At most times hereabouts, it’s only you, the mountains, the birds & the heavens above. The animals are pretty shy in this area but you may get a glimpse of them.
  • Experience diversity in culture and landscape during your Manaslu Trek. Visit remote Bhotia settlements placed at high altitudes, untouched by modern civilization. Witnessing the lifestyles of the locals here is simply mind-blowing & thought-provoking.
  • Walk through a historic region – the erstwhile kingdoms of Gorkha and Ghale Kings and follow an ancient trade route along the Budi Gandaki Valley
  • The demanding crossover of Larkya La at (5,160m), a high mountain pass & the passing over 3 different valleys on this trek is an unforgettable experience for a lifetime.

Are you cut out for this trip?

Manaslu trek is graded moderate, if you have done a Himalayan trek before and want to test yourself mentally, this Manaslu circuit is for you. The trek lasts for 11 days. The maximum time you spend on the trail is 9 hours to a minimum of 3 hours. On average, you spend around 5 to 6 hours on the trail.

The route winds across a challenging terrain (Cliffside gravel paths and stone staircases). Certainly Not for greenhorns. Each day there will be an elevation gain of 300 to 500 meters. The trail is less crowded and filled with awesome mountain views. You must be a habituated hiker & mentally strong for a trip of this kind.

The highest point reached during your trek is Larkya La at 5,160m, a high mountain pass that connects Budi Gandaki Valley with Marshyangdi Valley. You stop at local mountain lodges or teahouses for food and accommodation. These teahouses offer basic lodging and meals.

Best Time to Trek in part of the Manaslu and Tsum Valley

Spring (March to May) and autumn (mid-September to November) are considered the best seasons for Manaslu Trek. The weather stays dry and clear during these times, making it ideal for trekking and enjoying unobstructed views of mountains. The days are warm and the nights chilly. On the downside, however, these are peak seasons, and the trails may get crowded and busy.

The trail to Manaslu passes through a pristine forest that is filled with wildflowers and orchids during spring. Walking past the hills covered with wildflowers against the backdrop of the snowy Himalayas will seem heavenly. Autumn is the most popular season for Manaslu Trek.

With the end of the wet monsoon season, which clears the skies of dust and impurities, you can enjoy crystal clear views during this season. Timing your trek around late September or October will allow you to experience the most important festivals of Nepalese, Dashain, and Tihar.

These festivals are celebrated by the Ghales, Gurungs, and Brahmins living in the lower reaches of the trail. If you are bold enough to brave a cold winter trek, you can time your trek during January or February, when the Buddhist communities celebrate Losar or Tibetan New Year in the high mountains.

An important festival celebrated in the Nubri Valley is the Dhachyang or the Horse Festival. This festival which falls during December or January sees wide participation of horsemen from different villages. Horse racing and other competitions are held, where the winners receive handsome prizes and bragging rights. This trek involves crossing a high mountain pass Larkya La (5,165m), which can be quite risky during bad weather. Taking this route during the monsoon or winter season can be hazardous and we do not recommend it.

Getting To Manaslu

The trailhead of Manaslu Trek lies in Gorkha, a mountainous district that was also the epicenter of the devastating earthquake that Nepal suffered in 2015. While fewer roads were connecting this hilly district to Kathmandu in the past, there have been many developments in recent years. Many arterial roads have been built connecting the villages with Kathmandu. The old trailhead to Manaslu used to be Arughat, but now rough jeep tracks have been constructed up to Soti Khola and Barpak. Private as well as local transportation is available from Kathmandu.

If you are traveling on a budget, you can opt to travel by local bus. The journey takes around 7 to 8 hours. Local buses and jeeps (on a sharing basis) depart daily from Gongabu in Kathmandu early in the morning. Private vehicles are also available for hire. The vehicle comes with a driver, and rental charges vary according to the size and type of the vehicle. As per our itinerary, you take a private vehicle from Kathmandu to the village of Barpak, which was also the epicenter of the 2015 earthquake. You drive past New Gorkha and take the road to Barpak. You will observe that the pitched road starts from Kathmandu. However, when the road turns into a rough jeep track as you approach Barpak, you must be prepared to be tossed around a bit. Your trek begins from Barpak. Cross two river valleys, glaciers, and a mountain pass, and finally, you conclude your trek at Dharapani. From Dharapani, our vehicle will pick you up and drive you to your hotel in Kathmandu.

Please note: Manaslu is a restricted zone where solo trekking is not allowed. It is mandatory to trek with a registered agency.

Altitude Sickness & Acclimatization

Manaslu Trek takes you to the base of the 8th highest mountain in the world, Manaslu (8,156m). The highest point of your trek is the mountain pass of Larkya La (5,165m). In this environment, there is less oxygen which will lead to breathing difficulty.

To let your body get used to the thin air, you need to walk slowly, and steadily and keep your body hydrated. If you try to hasten and walk fast to reach your destination in less time, chances are you may suffer from AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness.

AMS symptoms like dizziness, headache, nausea, shortness of breath, fatigue, etc., are seen at elevations above 2000 meters. Taking Diamox and a good night’s rest may work for mild cases. Drinking plenty of fluids (water, tea, soup, etc.) and keeping your body hydrated will also help to keep the sickness at bay.

One should take necessary precautions to ensure that the condition does not worsen. But if the symptoms worsen, one may have to return to a lower elevation and get medical help. In the worst-case scenario, an air evacuation will be arranged, where the patient will be flown to Kathmandu to receive medical aid. AMS, if untreated or ignored, can take your life.

Experts and veteran guides have designed this itinerary. A rest day in Sama Gaon has been included in the itinerary to allow your body to adapt to the thin mountain air. The trek is well-paced and allows your body to gradually get used to low oxygen levels in the mountain air.

Drinking Water

It is important to keep your body hydrated on the trail as dehydration also causes AMS. One should drink at least 3-4 liters of fluid.

Though bottled water is readily available at teahouses, we dissuade you from buying it as it adds up to the thrashing problem in the mountains.  Moreover, like everything else, bottled water is also expensive in the mountains.

We highly recommend you carry a reusable water bottle with you, one that can hold hot water. You can use one with a sterile pen or an inbuilt filtration system like LifeStraw.

You can also use water purification tablets to treat the water. You might feel the water in the mountains tends to be pure and without impurities, but it's better not to take chances and filter or treat the water before drinking.

Using chlorine or iodine tablets to treat the water may alter its taste. You can add flavored electrolyte powder (readily available at pharmacies in Kathmandu) to mask the bitter chemical taste. Adding electrolyte to your drinking water may also be beneficial as the minerals (sodium, potassium, magnesium, etc.) you lose while walking gets replenished.

Teahouses offer boiled and filtered drinking water at an additional cost. Like bottled drinking water, it can cost anywhere between 1 USD to 4 USD. Charges vary according to altitude (the higher you reach, the more expensive it gets) and quantity also matters.

Internet Connectivity

Internet connection (though erratic and irregular in some places) is available in the Manaslu Region. You can connect with your loved ones while trekking, post updates, and upload pictures on social media. Wi-fi is available at most of the teahouses. Teahouses charge extra for using their Wi-Fi hotspot. Manaslu Link, a local internet provider, offers paid internet access on the trail. You can purchase the username and password at any of the teahouses or shops along the trail. You can also get a mobile sim card in Kathmandu and use it to keep in touch with your family and friends.

Packing Checklist for Manaslu Larkya Pass Trek

As opposed to popular belief, you don’t need any complicated gear and equipment for this adventure. Here’s a basic checklist of the essential items that you should not forget to bring with you during your Manaslu Trek:

You can leave your spare luggage in your hotel’s storage room. It is completely safe and free. But do make sure to lock your luggage before leaving it at the storage unit.

Guide(S) & Staff Arrangements

Manaslu Trek takes you to the foot of the 8th highest peak in the world, Manaslu (8,156m). En route, you will be crossing a mountain pass, glacier, and bridges over turbulent Himalayan Rivers. Having an experienced local guide accompanying you will enrich your trip in so many ways. Trekking with a person who has in-depth knowledge of the mountain will also keep you safe and secure.

When you book a trek with us, we pair you up with one of our local guides. All our guides have experience of more than a decade and have a vast knowledge of the area you are visiting. They have completed the trekking guide course and have the required government license to work as mountain guides. They can communicate in English and have received training in wilderness first aid and crisis management.

A chief guide or trek leader will lead the trek. For every 4 trekkers, there will be an assistant guide assisting them personally. One porter will carry the luggage of 2 clients. Make sure that your luggage does not exceed 15 kg, as the porter can only carry a weight of 30 kg.

We believe in the ethical treatment of our staff. All our Guides and Porters are provided with weather-appropriate gear and clothing to battle the harsh weather in the mountains. Before the start of a trek, we ensure that our mountain guides are fully insured. They are given fair wages and treated with respect.

We seriously follow the guidelines set by IPPG (International Porter Protection Group) and offer assistance to porters to develop other skills. A portion of the booking fee goes to fund the education of our field staff’s kids.

Travel Insurance

For Manaslu Trek, you need a good travel insurance policy that offers you coverage for all activities and altitudes included in your itinerary. The highest altitude you reach is 5,165 meters, and your travel insurance should offer you suitable coverage up to this elevation.

Though we take your safety as our number one priority, we cannot rule out mishaps and emergencies that may occur at this altitude.

There is less oxygen in the environment, and trekkers usually suffer from Acute Mountain Sickness, which could prove to be fatal if not treated on time.

Walking in a treacherous mountain environment also exposes you to physical injuries. Therefore make sure that your insurance covers the cost of all injuries and emergencies that you can face during this trekking adventure. Nature can be a monster when least expected.

Your insurance policy should especially cover the cost of helicopter evacuation and hospitalization in case of an accident or medical emergency, as these happen to be quite expensive. Check for vaccination requirements as some travel insurance policies make it mandatory to immunize yourself before you leave your country.

Before you decide on a policy, be mindful and don’t forget to read the fine print. It would be advantageous for you also to choose a company that offers insurance coverage on domestic and international flight cancellations and lost or stolen baggage.

Trip Safety

We ensure the safety of our clients by following all safety protocols during the trip. This itinerary has been designed by travel experts and veteran guides who have trekked on this route innumerable times. To prevent AMS, the required number of rest days has been added to the itinerary. Our guides always carry a first-aid kit and pulse oximeter   (to measure the oxygen level in your blood) with them. The guides assigned to you have more than 10 years of experience and know what steps to take during an emergency. They are well-trained in wilderness first aid and crisis management.

If a client shows symptoms of AMS and needs to descend to a lower elevation, an assistant guide will escort them and follow the safety protocol. He will closely monitor the client’s condition and take the required steps needed for the client's well-being. If they feel alright after a night’s rest, the guide will escort the client back to join the group. But if the condition worsens, the client will be escorted down to a lower elevation or airlifted to Kathmandu for expert medical aid.

A Typical Day on the Manaslu Trek

A typical day on the trail begins with a wake-up call at around 6 AM by your guide. Freshen up and get ready. Pack your belongings and head to the dining area for breakfast by 7 AM. Check your luggage for the final time and fill your water bottle before you hit the trail by 8 AM, along with your guide.

To avoid walking in the heat and enjoy clear mountain views, you make an early start. En route, there will be short breaks to enjoy the views and take photographs. You stop for lunch at a local teahouse around noon or mid-day. After a quick rest of about an hour or 40 minutes, you get back on the trail and continue till you reach your overnight stop. Upon reaching the stop for the night, you head to your teahouse, check-in, and have some rest. Tea with some light refreshments (cookies or roasted corn) will be served at 5 p.m. As the rooms are not insulated, you can warm yourself with the heater or stove in the communal area. Exchange stories or play cards with other trekkers & your crew till dinner is served (around 7 PM). After dinner, your guide will brief you about the next day’s trek – the route you will take, the difficulty, where you will stop for lunch, etc. Afterward, retire for the night and have a well-deserved rest.

On average, you may have to walk 5 to 6 hours daily. The toughest day will be the crossing of Larkya La on Day 10.  There will be plenty of stops en route to take pictures and enjoy the scenery.

Responsible Travel

We always expect our respected guests to travel responsibly and do their best to limit any negative impact on the environment. Limit the use of plastic and be mindful about throwing waste in the mountains. When you trek with us, you will be supporting local communities (from the guides and porters to teahouse owners). We, as a registered company with the government, support sustainable tourism and patronize local businesses. We partner with service providers who work towards saving the environment. We’re aware that devoted practice is more necessary than simply preaching when it comes to Responsible Travel.

However, when you reach 3500m, you will be walking around 5 to 7 hours but the distance covered will be less as you will be walking slowly at higher altitudes. We want you to know that all our itineraries are flexible and can be altered by weather, geographical and physical condition of the individual participants. We strongly advise that you hike to a pace comfortable to your body.

  • • What happens if someone from our group gets sick while trekking on the mountains?

    Kindly do note that if you are traveling in a group, a member falling sick won’t disrupt your trip. While the sick person will be taken care of, the rest of the group will be able to continue with the trip. If someone becomes ill on the trail your trekking guide will take the sick person’s condition on account and decide if he or she shall continue with the trek or return to a lower elevation and wait for the rest of the group. If his or her condition is serious then the person will be flown by air ambulance to Kathmandu or Pokhara for expert medical attention. An assistant will take care of the sick person, while the rest of the group shall proceed onwards and complete the trip as per the itinerary.

    If you want to add extra activities and sites to your itinerary it can be done. Our Travel Consultant will help you customize your trip. Just let us know which places you want to visit and what you want to do and we will add these into your itinerary. There’s no problem here.

  • • What kind of insurance do I need for trekking in Nepal? Can I get insurance there?

    We would recommend all our clients to purchase travel insurance before booking any of our treks, especially this one. Believe us, it will have a good psychological effect mentally & give you a pleasant holiday knowing that you have a good insurance cover. In the event of any sickness or injury while trekking on the mountains, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation will be considerable. Therefore, traveling with an insurance cover is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up for any of our trips. But be careful while choosing a policy as some policies makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Do read the fine print well. Before buying insurance make sure your insurance company is aware of your travel itinerary and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken during the trip. Such as if you are planning to trek or climb (mountaineering expedition) in the Himalayas, your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tour in an urban area, insurance cover of air ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory. While booking a trip with us you need to send us a copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come for the trip.

  • • How do you avoid altitude sickness?

    It’s important to note, all our trekking itineraries incorporate adequate number of acclimatization days. You will get an extra day’s rest at a lower elevation to prepare your body for a walk up to the higher reaches. AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness usually occurs due to the lack of oxygen in the atmosphere at alpine altitudes. Our body is not used to walking in high altitude and it requires a lot of time to adapt to thin air in the mountains. Technically, there is no way of stopping AMS but you can certainly prevent it by following the tips below: 1. Keep your body hydrated. Drink at least 4 liters of water daily. 2. Give up smoking, alcohol and caffeine, the major causes of dehydration and headaches. 3. Go slow – you’re not in a race. Take plenty of time to acclimatize to the increase in altitude. 4. Don’t skip the acclimatization day. Take Diamox, an over-the-counter pill used to prevent and reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness.

  • • Do I need to bring additional medicine for trekking?

    We carry a first-aid box with us while trekking. But if you want you can carry along some essential medicines like ibuprofen, codeine, paracetamol, lozenges, anti-diarrhea tablets and diamox for AMS.

  • • Can you provide more information about your trekking guides?

    Most of the guides on our payrolls come from mountainous areas. They are carefully selected on the basis of their experience, leadership skills and personal aptitude. We provide guides that are experienced and fluent in English. With the objective of sustaining local communities, we employ guides from different ethnic backgrounds who have adequate knowledge about the culture, ecosystem, flora and fauna, geography and history of Nepal. Our guides have the required government license to guide tourists. They have all gone through intensive training programs like wilderness first aid, trekking guide training, eco training workshop and rock climbing, ice climbing and mountaineering, which are certified and approved by the government of Nepal. They enjoy their jobs, virtually!

  • • Do you provide trekking gear and equipment for this trek?

    We provide a sleeping bag and down jacket but you need to bring your own personal gear. We can recommend some good stores where you can hire or buy new ones.

  • • Is my departure guaranteed

    On confirmation of your booking with us, your departure is absolutely confirmed. Nonetheless, please importantly note, this trek can only be operated with more than 2 people as per government rules as this trek falls within the restricted zone of Nepal. This is a guaranteed trip unless there are circumstances that go beyond our control, i.e. riots, arson, protests, serious political problems or any sudden natural environmental disasters that may occur in the region we are trekking to.

Wonderful Company for Families We just completed 13 days in Nepal, 8 of which was spent trekking to Annapurna Base Camp with our 10 and 13 year old daughters. We had a wonderful experience, from the instant communication with owner Simbir to all of my emails, to the trek itself with our guide and porters Dal Bahadur Gurung, Anil Gurung, and Manoj. The crew was fantastic, with not only helping us carry our gear but also making us comfortable once we reached our nightly tea house. Can the trip be done cheaper, apparently so if you are willing to go through the work to secure permits, carry your own gear and are prepared to be turned away at full tea houses. However, if you’re new to trekking, or like us and want to do it with children who aren’t yet ready to carry heavy packs, I highly recommend Himalaya View Treks.

Trek the EBC with Peace and Certainty! Himalaya View Treks simply shows the high mileage and professionalism for trekking and all related activities in Nepal. They will help and assist you before-during-after the activities to make sure you’re fully aware as well as safe and sound back to your homeland. For me personally, I did an EBC trek in April 2024 and it would be challenging without experienced guide and all support system provided by this company. Well done!

Amazing Experience! My partner and I went on the 12 day EBC tour, and our experience was amazing! We chose Himalaya View Treks because they hire local guides and porters. It was tough dealing with the altitude and the long days, but our guide Prayash and porter Ram made sure we were taken care of at all steps along the way, from taking care of our accommodation and meals to taking care of our health and comfort. They also helped us to sort our flights to and from Lukla which is a headache in the best of circumstances. We are very grateful to Himalaya View Treks for our experience!

Would 100% recommend We had a fantastic time on the 8-day Annapurna Circuit trek with Himalaya View Treks. The tour covered the most scenic and interesting parts of the circuit given the limited time we had, and the views were just unforgettable. Sofi, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable, and allowed us to adapt the pace (and any side treks) based on our abilities and interests. He also turned out to be a pretty good chess player. Our porter was also phenomenal: we couldn’t have made it up to Thorong La without either of them. The whole trip was very well organised and everything ran smoothly.

Wonderful Annapurna Circuit Trek! My husband and I did a shortened 7 day Annapurna Circuit starting in Kathmandu and finishing in Pokhara with Himalaya View Treks and we were very pleased with how it went. The tour was a reasonable price and everything ran like clockwork from the moment we were picked up from Kathmandu airport by our guide Suraj. Suraj sorted out all of our needs and made sure we were comfortable - he explained upcoming options for routes/accomm, he sorted our rooms (always aiming to get us ones with good views and private toilet where possible) and put our food orders in at the tea houses. Suraj was very calm and collected and we felt we were in good hands the whole way! We also loved the trek itself and the views were spectacular! We definitely recommend!

Great EBC + Gokyo Valley trek My EBC + Gokyo Valley trek in Feb-March 2024 (17 days) was amazing, thanks to Bisha, our guide. His deep knowledge of the area and mastery of the routes made the journey smooth and safe. Bisha's insights into the culture and nature of the region added a fascinating touch to the experience. He shared interesting details about the surroundings and provided historical context, making the trek even more enjoyable. When my friend needed a helicopter unexpectedly, Bisha connected his company, they swiftly arranged it, In conclusion, I highly recommend Himalaya View Treks & Bisha as a guide for the EBC + Gokyo Valley trek.

5 Star EBC Trek You are well taken care of right from landing in Nepal to departing. The route is well thought out and the experience is great. Our guide Ram and our porter Gurung were both phenomenal and really made the trip. Would highly reccomend for anyone interested in accomplishing EBC!

EBC trek during monsoon For a clumsy solo trekker like me, Sofiji, my guide, was perfect. A mighty, smiling, cute and hearty young fellow, who was very worried seeing me suffering from high altitude sickness and telling me, 'please don't die!' 😁😁 Trekkers usually don't choose monsoon for EBC trek but I am glad that I chose monsoon for going there. Though completing the trek in 9 days was exhausting and tiresome, I will cherish my memories of those 9 days as long as I live.

would absolutely recommend this company to do your trekking with in Nepal. From the moment we messaged simbir, he was so helpful with any questions/worries we had. Everything was so smooth from the moment we landed in Kathmandu. Our guide Ram was amazing on our trek to EBC, always making sure we were happy. Will definitely use again when we return to Nepal, thank you for everything guys✨✨

Embarked on a 9 days EBC trek with Sofi and Jivan, our guide and porter. They were both very reliable during the course of the trek and kept the atmosphere lively even when we were high up in the mountains. Highly recommended!

We used the services of a porter guide from the company on the Annapurna base camp trek. Rahul was truly amazing! so helpful and easy! We really appreciated his looking after us, helping pick the best accommodation and break spots along the way, making sure we are warm and positive. Would strongly recommend Rahul for those trekkers who look for a devoted and switched on porter guide.

We had a fantastic 3 passes hike thanks to the guidance, expertise and professionalism of Bishal Rai. He was a great trip partner, providing local knowledge and a sense of humor along the way. He even pointed out all the peak names to us many times due to our forgetfulness. Thank you and highly recommend Himalaya View Treks and guide, Bishal Rai.

Realicé el trek del Campo Base Everest y todo fue increíble. Yo lo hice en solitario junto a mi guía Suraj y lo recomiendo 100%, muy atento y es un experto del terreno, sabe en todo momento como actuar si te encuentras mal o cansado y buscar una nueva ruta. La agencia me dio mucha seguridad en todo momento y me sentí acompañado en todo momento. Lo volvería a contratar una y mil veces. Gracias!!!

Our Guide Rahul made sure that it was a pleasant Trek from start to finish. Very knowledgeable about the areas and always puts the safety and wellbeing of us first. When you book your Trek make sure you ask for Rahul.

Meine Frau und ich haben uns für eine „kurze“ Tour im Himalaya interessiert. Über das Internet sind wir auf Himalayan View Treks gestoßen. Sie haben die 8 Tage Annapurna Short Trek Tour angeboten. Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld per Mail mit Simbir lief super. Er konnte uns vorab alle Informationen geben. Auch eine individuelle Anpassung der Tour (z. B. per Flugzeug zurück) wäre möglich gewesen. Obwohl wir zunächst ein paar Tage in Kathmandu verbracht haben, wurden wir bei Ankunft von unserem Guide abgeholt und zum Hotel gebracht. So sind wir entspannt angekommen. An Tag 1 der Tour wurden wir früh morgens vom Hotel von unserem Guide (D. B.) und unserem Porter (Manoj) abgeholt. Tag 2-7 sind wir von Chame über Pisang, Manang, Ledar, High Camp über den Thorong La Pass nach Muktinath gewandert. Insgesamt waren es ca. 80km, 4.100m nach oben und 3.100m nach unten zu wandern. Tag 8 ging dann per Jeep zurück nach Pokhara. Trotz der für unsere Verhältnisse langen Strecke ging die Tour super zu laufen. Das lag vor allem auch an unserem Guide und Porter! D. B. hat sich stets nach unserem Wohlbefinden erkundet. Jeden Abend gab es einen kurzen Tagesrückblick und Lagebesprechung für den kommenden Tag. So konnten wir währenddessen noch entscheiden, ob wir an einem Tag etwas weiter laufen, um am darauffolgenden Tag etwas weniger machen müssen. Er ging da sehr gut auf uns ein. Manoj hat unseren schweren Rucksack getragen und wir konnten uns so ganz aufs Trekking konzentrieren. Darüber waren wir sehr dankbar. Auch er hat sich immer um uns gekümmert (are you ok? 😉) D.B. hat uns über den gesamten Trek viel Wissen über das Land und die Berge vermittelt. Außerdem konnte er uns viele interessante Bergsteiger Geschichten erzählen. Wir hatten 8 unbeschreibliche Tage! Unsere anfänglich Angst und Sorge, es nicht zu schaffen wurde uns durch den professionellen Umgang komplett genommen. Vielen Dank dafür!

Just returned home from a fantastic adventure holiday on the EBC trek. Himalaya View Treks couldn't of been more helpful from choosing and booking our trek before we arrived through to dropping us back to the airport once we had finished , nothing was too much trouble. Before coming to Nepal me and my dad was unsure if we needed a guide however we are now so pleased that we decided to get one. Sobit our guide made the experience so much better as he took care of all the arrangements and organising leaving us to concentrate on the trek and enjoy the scenery without any stress. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Himalaya View Treks and would request Sobit as a guide as he was brilliant!!!!
