We will welcome you at Tribhuvan International Airport upon your arrival and transfer you to the hotel for the overnight stay.

    Follow the river Budhi Gandaki toward its point of origin. We pass the village of Morder and Simre to reach Arkhat river. After Arkhat we ascend slowly toward Kyoropani. Camp today near the confluence of Seti river - an ideal place to take a fresh water bath.
     

      The trail descends slowly until you climb again to mountain ridge to Almara. Pass the forest trail to arrive at Riden Gaon. The valley here cuts into another side of the river to enter Budhi Gandaki. At Lambesi, the trail follows down to the sandy river bed of Budhi Gandaki. Camp tonight at Machha river.
       

        Cross Machha river and head upstream along the river's edge. After crossing Khola besi, there is a hot spring called "Tatopani". The trail follows forested area after this toward Doban. Below Doban, there is a huge rapid at Budhi Gandaki. As the elevation increases, the rapids and the scenery undergoes a complete trasformation. At Jagat, there is a police check-post where your trekking permit will be checked.
         

          Descend to the riverbed again. After crossing the river, ascend to a terraced hill of Saguleri. Sringi Himal (7177 m.) can be seen from here. At Ghatte river, cross the river Budhi Gandaki to continue toward Sirish Gaon. Gandaki valley narrows from herewith soaring precipitous walls.
           

              Trek from Lho Village to Sama Gaun (3780m),which takes about seven hours and over night in the camp. Rest day at Sama Village for acclimatization.
               

                Rest day at Sama Village for acclimatization.

                  Early in the morning, we follow trail through forest before steep ascent to a slope and to a moraine. There is magnificent view of glacier, a turquoise lake and wonderful mountains from all angles. Trekking to Manaslu Base Camp takes approximately 4-5 hours.
                   

                    Descending back to Samagaon takes around 2-3 hrs. From Base Camp there is shorter trekking trail to Pungyen Gompa and icy lake, Birendra Tal. Walking through forest area before you reach ridge and grassy plateau. Here you will explore a gompa which was destroyed by the flood in 1953. Continue the trail to get to icy water of Birendra Tal which is situated at base of the glacier, and if you’re brave enough take a dip into the lake.

                                        Manaslu Base Camp Trek

                                        It was my first time in Nepal and I had never done a trekking tour before.With great respect and also with some apprehension I started the trip.Raj has always taken away my insecurity and motivated me. No matter how different the speed of our group was, no one was disadvantaged.Gokarna and the porters split up and always stood by our side. No matter how bad one was, we were taken care of very well. There was always a solution for any situation and one felt safe.I would not have reached my destination without your support.Raj and his team are heartily, caring and top organized. I thank all the porters and guides from the bottom of my heart. See you again.
