Manaslu update 15th June
This is all so far unconfirmed and unofficial.
A comprehensive survey of the trail is being completed now. It is likely that the main trail along the river between Arkhet Bazaar and Jagat will be diverted high along the east bank of the river due to landslides. This would affect tea-house trekking as the first two-four of days of trekking on that route has no established accommodation, and thus it is likely camping would be required. Additionally trail improvement work will likely be being completed at that time (to allow mules to safely pass), including the installation of a new suspension bridge.
What is clear is that concerned parties are working very hard indeed to return the landslide affected trekking trails and the trek in general to a good condition.
