Manaslu Circuit October 2022

I've known Nepal village trek Owner sujan for more than three years. He runs an excellent company. In my opinion, Basu is one of their best guides. Ask for him on your next trek. He is very attentive, understands English very well, and and is very organized and prompt. Basu is absolutely the best guide you could ask for. I recently finished the Manaslu Trek (October 2021). I had an amazing experience! Basu  is also an excellent guide. He is very experienced and very likeable.

Manaslu Trek with Nepal village trek 2022

Manaslu Trek. Nepal Village trek took care of every detail. From the time getting to Nepal to leaving to getting Caved tests, everything was taken care of. At a time where travel is difficult and there are lots of things to worry about, Nepal village trek made the whole process very easy. What a great and relaxing (but strenuous) vacation. I would not delay any travel due to Covid. Sujan Neupane takes care of everything.

Now for Trek. It was epic. Our Deepak & Hari were awesome. They were always well prepared, made sure we stayed at the most convenient locations and kept us safe through some harrowing times with the unusual rainfall. Deepak& Hari were very knowledgeable about the area. Knew local history, mountain ranges and did a great job locating wildlife (mountain goats, otters, monkeys) that made the trek that much more enjoyable. The porters, shiva   worked very hard. Our bags were always nearby and they did a great job keeping them dry during all the rain (3 days straight). I couldn’t be happier. Can’t wait to go back and explore other regions. I would definitely ask for Deepak & Hari to guide any future expeditions. If you’re exploring Nepal, do not go with any other company. Nepal Village trek is the best company In Nepal who travel to Nepal join Nepal village trek Highly Recommend
