After long planning me and my other 4 friends decided to go Nepal for Manaslu trek and I took the responsibility for arrangement of Nepal Manaslu Trek. I found the Local Company Nepal Trek Hub and read about them on internet and became quite impressed and started to email conversation with them regarding Mnaslu trek. Shreeram the Owner of Nepal Trek hub answer my each and everyquestion very quickly so we booked the trip with them.
Upon our arrival Shreeram pick up us from Airport and we stayed in Kathmandu guest house. We met our guide there and shreeram did the briefing about our trek so it was very nice of him. Then afterwards we went to the gear shop for renting and buy the stuff. We were prepared fully before we departure but we had to wait for the permits.
Sudeepa (female guide) shows us historical landmark Kathmandu and Pasupatinath as well as Boudhanath stupa by the next day while other guys were making the permits. It was nice to look around the city and know something cultural and historical things. We met our porter on departure day (Raju, Bikram and depak) with our guide Rajesh and took jeep to arughat. It was horrible driving but it is ok we understand that it is mountain and the trail was too dusty and bumpy too. Next day we started our trek from sotikhola. The trek went very well Rajesh managed everything very smoothly as we were group of girls this guys are very careful about our sensitiveness. Rajesh and his porters are always very funny helpful as well as informative. We learn many things about people Nepal lifestyle, cultures and religion from them. More on Tripadvisior

we are very much delighted to the service of the Nepal Trek Hub while we were doing the spectacular manaslu trek in 2019 October.
At first we got the contact from the internet and we started to communicate with them regarding our requirements. They gave us an excellent travel plan with every thing in details. The costing was totally fair although it was not cheapest . We choose to them because of their fast response and good review on german blogs. We were pick up through the airport then we had a big discussion and preparation regarding the trek. Next day we had a small sightseeing around the Pasupatinath and Boudhanath, at same day we hired some gears. We were just a couple and a guide and porter, the trek went very smoothly as our guide was very nice person. He was too kind to us and caring. We had many jokes during the trek. The trek was quite challenging though, we went to hike from samagaun to Manaslu Base camp this was the best part of our trek which I really enjoyed while others did not. We were very happy on our luck as well. The weather was super good.
October is very busy season in Nepal. You need to adjust with many other tourist every where you go but that is normal. We were quite sad for our guide and porter because they did not have a good place to sleep , they were saying that is normal on this trek on this time. Overall we had a excellent trek with Nepal Trek Hub. We did not notice any mistakes or weakness from them. Thank you guys. However I want to suggest the fellow travelers following.
