  • A Majestic Adventure: Manaslu Trek
    Reviewed Tour: Manaslu Short Trek 2023 (7 months ago)

    Manaslu Short Trek is an awe-inspiring journey that takes you through the stunning landscapes of the Manaslu region in Nepal. As an adventurous trekker seeking a unique and off-the-beaten-path experience, I embarked on this incredible journey and was left spellbound by its natural beauty and cultural richness.

    From the moment I set foot on the trail, I was greeted by breathtaking vistas of snow-capped peaks, cascading waterfalls, lush forests, and charming mountain villages. The Manaslu region, often referred to as the "hidden gem" of Nepal, offers a pristine and less crowded alternative to the popular Annapurna and Everest treks.

    The trekking route circumnavigates Mount Manaslu, the eighth-highest peak in the world, providing trekkers with unparalleled views and a sense of accomplishment. The sheer scale and grandeur of the mountains left me in awe at every turn. The trail takes you through diverse terrains, including terraced fields, rugged gorges, and high mountain passes, offering a perfect blend of challenges and rewards.

    One of the highlights of the Manaslu Short Trek is the opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture. The region is inhabited by various ethnic groups, notably the Gurungs, Tamangs, and Sherpas. Interacting with these warm and hospitable people gave me valuable insights into their traditional way of life, customs, and beliefs. Staying in teahouses and homestays along the route allowed me to experience the local hospitality and savor delicious Nepali cuisine.

    The Manaslu Conservation Area, through which the trek passes, is a sanctuary for diverse flora and fauna. I was fortunate to spot rare wildlife like the elusive snow leopard, Himalayan tahr, and musk deer. The region is also teeming with bird species, making it a paradise for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts.

    It's important to note that the Manaslu Trek requires a moderate level of fitness and trekking experience. The trail is less developed compared to the popular routes, and proper acclimatization is crucial due to the high altitude. Hiring a knowledgeable and experienced guide is highly recommended to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

    In conclusion, the short Manaslu Trek is an unforgettable adventure that combines stunning natural beauty, cultural immersion, and a sense of accomplishment. It offers a unique opportunity to explore the hidden treasures of Nepal, away from the crowds. If you're seeking an off-the-beaten-path trek that showcases the raw beauty of the Himalayas and allows you to connect with local communities, the short Manaslu Trek should be at the top of your bucket list.

  • A luxury Vacation
    Reviewed Tour: Manaslu Luxury Trek 2023 (7 months ago)
    I recently went on the Manaslu Luxury Trek with MCT, and it was an incredible experience. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty, with comfortable accommodations and exceptional service throughout the trek. The trek itself was challenging but also incredibly rewarding, with stunning views of the Himalayan mountains and beautiful landscapes that seemed to stretch on forever. Our knowledgeable guide led us through the various villages, and we had the chance to interact with the locals and learn more about their culture and way of life. One of the highlights of the trip was staying at the luxurious lodges, which were a welcome retreat after a long day of hiking. The lodges were equipped with all the amenities you could ask for, including comfortable beds, hot showers, and delicious meals. Overall, the Manaslu Luxury Trek was an unforgettable experience, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and luxurious trekking adventure in Nepal. It's the perfect way to experience the natural beauty and rich culture of the Manaslu region while still enjoying the comforts and amenities of a luxury vacation.

  • Adventurous walk on the high altitude
    Reviewed Tour: Manaslu Circuit Trek Package (1 year ago)
    Quite a tough walk on the high altitude, but every moment was well worth the views of towering snow peaks. Along with lovely dramatic scenery on daily walks to Manaslu Region. The only hard bit was crossing over Larkey-La with cold packed lunch, but enjoyed the adventure and I did it. Thanks to the guides and staff of Manaslu Circuit Trek, for the wonderful adventure.

Traking to Annapurna Base Camp Overall, our trip to ABC was exelent. At last, everything stated and agreed in itinerary were fulfilled. On the way from Kathmandu to Pokhara, we were informed that guide who accompanied us will only available until Pokhara,due to he had a personal bussiness to take care of. The next day to ABC will be guided by only two sherpas. After discussion, then decided to provide another guide as stated in the contract. The route arranged by Nim were exelent. We were all enjoyed it. Our guide Dibash was professional and patient, and our smiling sherpa Rajan and Bikal were very strong and friendly . One thing that was not properly informed was, road condition from Kathmandu to Pokhara . In itinerary stated, it take 7-8 hours, in fact, we arrive Pokhara after 11 hours drive by bus. Almost 70% road condition was rough and bumpy, and many landslide along, and sometime stuck by long traffic jam. Anyhow, we all could adjust our expextation. We would like to visit Nepal again, especially EBC trak . Hopefully will join with Core Trek again. Warm Regards from Indinesia, Halim

Higly recommended I did the Langtang Valley trekk with Gosaikunda lakes included. The preparation and communication for that has been great all the time. Nim is an excellent and knowledgeable person. My Trekkingguide was Gorakh and i couldn't have hoped for a better one! I felt like i was in good hands throughout the trekk and he took care of my dietary needs. They also booked my bus ticket to Pokhara and asked the bus driver to pick me up at a place which was closer to my accommodation. Thank you so much Nim!! Next time i will do the Manaslu trekk with you :)

Trek to Rara Lake in Nepal with CoreTreks My wife and I had been planning to visit Nepal since like a year ago. We are really happy and satisfied with our trek to Rara Lake in Nepal. The place is really chilling with beautiful scenery all around. Luckily the weather was fantastic and we got a clear view of the mountains and the lake. We are really humbled to be able to experience such a rare privilege. Our guides informed us that the weather is often bad especially because of the altitude. The alpine vegetation surrounded by mountains was really special to observe. I would like to thank CoreTreks for helping us throughout our journey to Rara Lake.

Great service Beautiful temples and delicious food After touring around the Kathmandu valley, I’m inspired to explore more about Nepal. Unfortunately it will have to be during my next visit. The city is way busier than I expected it to be. As we drove outside the valley, we discovered some peaceful environment and beautiful temples. The Nepali cuisine in Kathmandu was something I would love to try again. They are spicy but delicious. I have to say that the people in Nepal are really friendly and welcoming. Everyone greeted us with love and treated us nicely. There was no fear for a lone traveler like me to get through the tour. Thanks to CoreTreks and the team for making this tour possible for me. I booked last minute but they helped me through everything. I really appreciate it. If you are looking to visit Nepal, I highly recommend that you book from CoreTreks they are the best.
