Hello Babu,
Thank you for arranging this beautiful, well organised trip. We enjoyed trekking with Sonam and Ramesh, they are really helpful and they did help to make the trip as comfortable as it can be in the mountains. The Manaslu trek was a great adventure. We did like the beautiful green rice paddies in the lower area, the nice small villages on our way, the yaks, and the rough mountain landscape with ist beautiful views. Also thank you for the warm down jacket and the warm sleeping bag. It kept us alive up in the mountains :) If you are looking about going into the Himalaya, we like to recommend to do the Manaslu trek together with Unique Path Trekking!
