Want to find a fun and friendly private guide? Try Oangdi Gurung from Ghame in Upper Mustang. He’s a bit more expensive that normal guides, he has good English, Nepal and crucially, Tibetan language, which means he can communicate nicely with the people Tsum and the upper parts of Manaslu. He studied in Pokhara with Nima Dorje, the guy you’ll meet in Samdo at the cyber cafe, who runs the Samdo school also. He spent a long time in

Oangdi has worked for TV companies filming in Mustang, and guided for people from Switzerland, Russia, America, UK, Finland, Denmark among many others. He’s a registered guide and can help you figure out everything from permits to transport.

    Dear Oangdi, My name is Sonja and I live in NYC in the US. I am originally from Germany, Me and my friend Suze would like to do the Manaslu Circuit in 14 days. We arrive on the March 8th in Kathmandu and would like to start hiking at the 10th. I’ll fly out of Kathmandu on March 26th. We would like to walk for 13-14 days. We are both well trained in our context (living in the US at the moment), means we run/hike/climb halfmarathon/marathon level. We lived in Switzerland and did a lot of hiking and mountaineering . But we have no experience with the Himalaya and the height. We like to challenge ourselves but also want to enjoy and have fun and learn about the local culture.
    Please let us know, if you could arrange a trip for us. That would be great!
