Amazing Manaslu Trek with Yakub
We found this trekking agency to be the perfect fit for us. Himal and his team are flexible and reliable at the same time. The entire trek, including arrival and departure, took 13 days. Due to some unexpected landslides and the high altitude before the Larke Pass (over 5000m), the trek was quite challenging. However, all of those challenges were well worth the effort. Our group felt so close to the highest mountains in the Himalayas, and the landscape is stunning and awe-inspiring. There are various lodges along the route, so you still have some level of comfort. There were some lodges that were more comfortable (heaters or solar showers) and some that were a bit more basic.
Besides the beautiful landscape, we were very fortunate to have Yakub as our guide. He organized the entire trip for us, including our bus and jeep rides, every lodge, and our rest day in Gowa with a very lovely family, and he even brought fruits to the mountains to serve as a dessert. Thanks to him, we were able to gain a greater understanding of Nepali culture and the mountains. Additionally, he gave us the right pace when we were tired due to altitude or steep terrain. As a result, we always felt secure despite difficult circumstances. Yakub possesses a warm and welcoming personality. Having him as a friend during this trek was an honor. Yakub, thank you so much for this wonderful experience. Please let us know the recipe for the amazing pickles in Gowa.
