Incredible !! MANASLU Treak

We had the most incredible Manaslu circuit trek! It was brilliantly organized by Luxury Holiday Nepal who was incredibly informative and remained unshaken by our endless questions and changes to the itinerary. Our guide was just amazing with attentive and supportive. They secure the best accommodation and manage our expectations, checking the food and the kitchen at the tea houses. The trek was more of a challenge than expected and the altitude punishing, but the scenery was spectacular as we climbed from rivers to jungle stunning open plains and the majestic inspiring mountains and the villages, people we met on the trail, mountain mules and Yaks were fascinating: new wonders every day. we loved it!! we will definitely be back and will not hesitate to use Luxury Holiday Nepal again. Thank you everyone - you did an amazing job!

I was in Nepal with my two friends to embark on a trekking trip of the Manaslu Circuit with Luxury Holiday Nepal in mid-March 2019. They picked us up at the airport in a luxury vehicle. LHN provided the best and comfortable hotel room with amazing food, meals, and dinners. We headed off on our trekking the next day and I could not fault a thing. Ram was an outstanding guide who did everything possible could to make our experience amazing and extremely knowledgeable of the Manaslu area since he was raised in the valley. he knew everyone! This made a difference as we didn’t feel like a tourist. Guider ram had a very deep and thorough knowledge of all of the flora and fauna are that we saw. He was always happy to give advice and answer any question we had. We can honestly say that without the care of the guide and their team provided for us throughout our trek we may have not had such a successful and completely enjoyable time in Nepal. I wouldn’t hesitate to book another trek with the team. Thank you!!!

I did trekking to Manaslu with 4 other Dutch friends through Luxury Holiday Nepal. They had provided one Guide and 3 porters. Our trekking guide was Mr. Shyam Basnet and he is so attentive and friendly,  a caring guy who speaks English fluently and experienced guide too. He was always very transparent about the costs and flexible too. The whole journey with him worked out exceptionally well. The guide stayed with us each day during the trek and pointed out interesting features and information and adjusted the place and itinerary according to our needs so that we felt comfortable at all times. Thanks to their experience and perfect planning and able to successfully cross Larke pass while having fun the whole time. We can strongly recommend Luxury Holiday Nepal, as they will ensure maximize your enjoyment and memories of your time in Nepal.

We had an amazing time doing manaslu circuit trekking. Our guide Nabaraj was very experienced and made sure we acclimatized well before the going for a high altitude. While others were resting at the guest house, he always made sure we had good rooms and always ordered our dinner early so we could eat earlier. He also made many adjustments to the schedule according to our pace and our request to jeep the dirt road on the way back. Our porter and guide were also very experienced and knowledgeable. He was also always in the kitchen helping with making meals for us, which I never saw other porters do. We will definitely trek with Luxury Holidays Nepal again when we come back to Nepal!

This is my second time in Nepal I had decided to do a Manaslu circuit trek. After arrival in Kathmandu international airport I had directly drive to Luxury Holidays Nepal’s office. I talked with Mr. Shishir and I told him my plan for 21 days Manaslu circuit trek. He introduced to my Guide Nabaraj and Porter Ramesh. It is rarely to experience such professionalism service.

Everything was taken care of and they arranged a guide and porter that really made the trip very memorable. A trek like this is quite a challenge because of the steepness and the high altitude and therefore you should be well prepared physically to be able to enjoy it. Manaslu circuit trek is amazing and to be at the top of the world with spectacular mountain views!!

I loved this trek and look forward to do another trek someday soon. I’ll be extremely happy to use Luxury Holidays Nepal.

I together with my girlfriend just finished the 16 day Manaslu circuit trek organized via this company and I can highly recommend to do the same. After having visited several travel agencies in Kathmandu, we had the best feeling about trekking partners. The people in the office are very welcoming and the information provided is very informative. After visiting the office we also received all information via e-mail from Shishir. Including itineraries and packing list.

Best was our guide Navraj. He explained to us a lot about culture and nature during the trek. He even helped us to carry some luggage during the most difficult parts of the trek. 

Next trek we would definitely go again with trekking partners and Navraj!

Porters do appreciate a personal tip, although it is not uncommon for the Guide and his Porters to pool the tips they have collected before splitting it amongst themselves, with the Guide is getting a little more for overseeing the welfare and safety of both the Travelers and Porters as a whole.
