Posted Apr 30th, 2012 under Trekking & Hiking, Trip Report,

A group of six adventurous Danish people decided to explore Manaslu this March and Explore Himalaya helped in organizing this trip for them from 26 March to 20 April 2012. Here is what our Danish Tour Leader Mr Hans Hjordt Hansen had to say after completion of their exhilarating trip “The trek guide Mr Nima Tamang was perfect so was the cook who served us very fine meals, the camping services were also ok, only the last three days of the trek had to be revised due to the road construction”
