    Hi there,Wanting to trek Manaslu mid-December. I know not the best time but with kids in school only time. Have 12 and 15 year old boys and have trekked at high altitudes in Peru and Chili. Husband and I trekked indepently Annapurna, Goykyo and Langtang 18 years ago. Feel comfortable going solo but it appears you must now hire a guide which I think is great given the time of year and small number of trekkers. Any advice? Any books out there you recommend? Can we arrange our trekking permits in the United States before we go?

    Thanks for your reply

      Hi Laura, check this regarding the permits.
      Some tea-houses may be closed that that time due to the cold and lack of trekking activity. Therefore a tent might be necessary, there for you may need a small team with you! I can point you in the right direction if you need. Let me know.

        Thank you so much for your comments. I will do my research thru your site before bombarding you with more questions! We so want to do the Manaslu circuit but may be best to do in a different month. That limits us right now. Will conteplate this further. We may opt for AC with sidetrips into different areas. I get the need for a small team perhaps to cross the pass…it is very remote and a long, long day. Will be ready for more questions as we finetune this.

        Thanks again,

    hi guys!

    firstly – thanx for the good work you do here. Really helpful!
    I am planning to take a Manaslu trek this October. I am sure I will come back with quite a few other questions, but today I’d like to ask the following:
    some time ago somewhere I read that one of the options as a sidetrack is climbing Larkye peak during the trek. Question – would it be advisable and does it require any previous training or reaching the summit is relatively easy (with help of sherpas and experienced guide) like Island Peak?

    I hope I explained correctly my wish and will appreciate very much any advice on the matter.

    thank you so much in advance!
