I could not have imagined a better trek – Yakub is the best!
Himal responded quickly and comprehensively to our inquiries and questions, which enabled us to feel comfortable booking our Manaslu Circuit with him. In addition, he offered a fair price. Yakub, our guide, provided us with the best experience we could have imagined! Throughout the trek, he maintained a flexible itinerary. Although I was sick at the beginning, we were able to make it thanks to some rest time and smart decisions – but he had also clearly explained the alternatives as well. To ensure that we had a more quiet experience, both in the lodge and on the trail, he chose guest houses in villages that were different from the majority of trekkers. He organized everything so that we always had a bed, and, for example, had an immediate jeep pick-up at the end, while others waited for hours. His English is excellent, he taught us some Nepalese, and he shared many insights into Nepalese culture and life. Additionally, he was our engagement photographer and arranged a heartwarming surprise for us at our last guest house. Don’t look any further if you are seeking the best guide and a reliable agency!
