The beauty of this trek not only influences you but also creates a deep impact on the core. You not only see the indescribable beauties, but also the panoramic view of the mountains that are covered with snow which captivates your every sense organ. Because of this, none of the trekkers is dissatisfied. Even when they trek in the isolated area, but which is loaded with snow-clad mountains, waterfalls, and lush forest. They are superior and reign this part of the world which is different from the world of ours, but which have dominated from top to bottom the international qualities of trekking.
Manaslu Trek is a platform of the journey in which you travel to see the view of Manaslu, the dramatic view, and what you see is the view of the world’s eighth highest mountain. This is its potential as well as a tagline. Enjoying its main characteristic, what you see are the mountains that you have never heard of before, such as Sringi Himal, Himlung, Cheo Peak, Gyagi Kung, and Kang Koru. They not only influence you with their beauties but when the trekking trail takes you near them, it creates a relationship between a living thing and a non-living thing for the first time. From the white snow, the trekking trail takes you to the Green Revolution which you experience in the forest of rhododendron, pine, cedar, birch, and juniper, in the forest of Alpine.

In Kathmandu, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During trekking, you will spend your night in a tea house. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house.

Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others.

Be well prepared in advance because this stupa is located at quite an altitude and is more than 2,000 years old. This is the most important of all the Buddhist Stupas in Nepal and has a fascinating face of Lord Buddha on every side, and its base has the stonework of 5 Dhyani Buddhas – Vairocana, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha, Amoghasiddhi, and Aksobhya, and each of these represents the wisdom of Lord Buddha. People flock to this stupa to see the birds-eye view of Kathmandu.
Pashupatinath is as old as the hills, but the Hindu Committees of Nepal, looks after it, such as renovation and maintenance, and there are new adds on in and around the temple.

I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.
Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.
