Take on Nepal took myself and five of my friends on the Manaslu Circuit trek in April 2018. From when we got off the plane, Take on Nepal were with us every step of the way, from airport pick up to organising permits to buying last minute clothes for our 10 day hike. Our Take on Nepal team (Mane, Anil, Anil and Amrit) were amazing, they involved us in our trek route, were flexible, very knowledgeable of the area and alleviated any concerns we had along the way whether it be distances or altitude. Their charisma and energy is commendable and made our trek. I highly recommend Take on Nepal for any groups and looking to trek through the Himalayas. You will have an incredible experience and support a great organising at the same time.
The 10-day Manaslu hike far exceeded all expectations and was unlike anything I have ever experienced! The elevation range from 500m to 5,100m enabled the group to see the vastly different landscapes of the Himalayas; the dry, hot and steep terrain at lower altitude, the mild pine forests filled with rhododendrons at mid-altitude, and the glacial valleys and snowy mountain peaks at higher altitude. The size and scale of the mountains is breathtaking, pictures do not do it justice. The Himalayas are a must do for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Aside from the obvious beauty and uniqueness of the scenery, the trip was made by the team from Take on Nepal. Their model challenges the status quo of trekking in Nepal, such as empowering women and integrating porters into the tour group. Not only does this benefit the staff members, but it enhances the tour and provides a more genuine Nepalese experience. Most importantly, it fostered some close friendships that I hope to hold onto! Big thanks to Mane, Anil, Anil and Amrit - can’t wait to do another one with you lads!
I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to trek with Take on Nepal around the Manaslu Circuit in April 2018! Flying into Kathmandu I didn’t feel at all prepared for what lay ahead, however as soon as we landed Dinesh (Take on Nepal) took care of everything. He organised all our permits and paperwork, as well as taking us to the best hiking stores scattered through the Thamel markets where we could stock up on any last minute needs. We also completed a day trip hiking in the mountains above Kathmandu which gave us a taste for what lay ahead in Manaslu. Once we got out the Kathmandu Valley, we were looked after by the excellent team of Mane, Anil, Anil and Amrit. The guys took it upon themselves to make the 10 day trek as comfortable and easy for us as it could have possibly been, which enabled us to just walk and enjoy the incredible scenery around us. I will treasure the time spent with the boys as their passion for their country was infectious. It was not just the picturesque environment they cared about, but also the local people in their villages and communities they are trying to empower through the charity; and of course us, the tourists! Even after the hike was over they went out of their way to improve our experience in Nepal and I will never forget that. The Manaslu Circuit provided a beautiful setting to complete the trek. I was amazed by the diversity of the environment we experienced - from dry, dusty roads to lush forests and of course the snow covered paths to Manaslu Base Camp and the Larke Pass. Each day it felt like we woke up to something totally new, and even though we only trekked for 10 days it felt like we saw so much more. Mane as the group leader did a great job of keeping us all happy and motivated throughout the journey, in spite of the challenges you face on such a trip. His knowledge of the circuit and the flora and fauna around us was really interesting to learn about, and it also enabled us to alter our days of walking if required. Whilst we didn’t vary much from our original plan, his suggestion allowed us to do a day hike up to the Manaslu Base Camp that we hadn’t originally factored in, and this turned out to be one of the most memorable days of the entire trek. It was my first visit to Nepal, but I definitely want to return and see more of this beautiful country with Take on Nepal!
