Words are not to describe the beauty of Himalayas. You can read our previous articles on useful tips about planning budget,itineraryor great day trips during the trek for the expedition. Now it’s time to enjoy Manaslu and the Himalayas in the pictures.
Gatekeepers to Larke Pass, at 5 106 meters the highest point of the trek. Manaslu, Nepal.
It is dark and all one can see are shapes of eleven sleeping bodies of fellow Chinese hikers. Stepped slowly on the ladder to leave the attic of a hermitage we spent the night in, we quickly realized that our bodies have not yet recovered from the eleven hours of stairs climbing the day before. We are back on the track to conquer Mt. Emei, the highest of the four sacred Buddhist mountains of China.
Manaslu is a great choice worth an investment. Topping up a little more than on the notorious Anapurna circuit can eliminate hundreds of fellow trekkers from your views. We were struggling to get our cost estimates before the trip, hence we decided to write this article. We decided to do the trip on our own and budget along the way rather than going on a “package tour”. Result: It’s cheaper and more flexible!
When planning for Manaslu, take your time to explore and enjoy the magnificent nature during the side trips. Most people plan 16 days, rushing on the main trekking path. However, taking time and stepping aside can reveal some majestic peaks, meadows and lakes! Here is the overview of the day trips we’ve done.
Way to Ponkar lake brings new views of the mountains we’ve seen for the last several days. Manaslu, Nepal.
We’ve done over 230 kilometres around Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world, in late September 2018. 18 days of trekking with tremendous views. Only us and nature. No showers. No electricity. No internet. We share how to successfully plan and complete this hidden-gem trek right next to the popular and overcrowded Annapurna circuit!
Pure happiness at the highest point of the trek – Larke Pass at 5106 meters above the sea level!
The first ever article in the newspaper. We’re thrilled to have an interview in the Czech newspapers – Lidove noviny. The article is in Czech and covers our experience and learnings from living in Hong Kong.
Anytime our guests arrive in Hong Kong, we take them to this club for the spectacular view. It’s also spectacularly expensive, so we never get any drinks there. Just enjoying the free views…
Hustling and bustling Hong Kong? The place with the most dense living areas in the world and skyscrapers everywhere you only look? Check today’s post to learn what you probably didn’t know about Hong Kong! Continue reading
Zhangjiajie is best known for the location where the Avatar movie was shot. Thousands of Chinese domestic tourists come to witness the natural rock columns and monuments from the e-buses and cable cars, while we take a completely different approach resulting in 41 km hiked in 3 days. Worth every kilometre!
