Manaslu Circuit - 3 weeks camping and hiking in Nepal - are you ready?

Sun, 08/01/2010 - 17:43

I've just recently booked up for this circuit - 4 months before the event - which is early for me... but I've been thinking of doing a Nepal trip since Christmas.  I was looking to do the Annapurna circuit - but all of the discussion around the new road put me off.  I may do it another year, and fly back from Jomsom. I also had a recommendation in mind that the best trips in Nepal are the camping ones - where you have the same crew the whole route - rather than the one that stop at a different tea-house each night.

Then I found this one - and thought it looked ideal...

I did the Tour de Mont Blanc last summer (~10,000m climb over 2 weeks), and Mt Toubkal earlier this year (4,167m); so I'm hoping that 5,213m isn't going to give me too much gyp... although the addition of rough camping for 3 weeks should add to the fun.

Now - just need to plan what to take; and get back into alpine hiking fitness.  I started this weekend with two hikes in Alpe D'Huez... only an hour's drive from my apartment in Grenoble... Let's hope I can keep it up...

Are you on the same trip?  Why did you choose this one?  Have you done similar trips before?

Anyone else on the trip? Or just me? ;-)

I've just created a facebook group possibly to share photos when we're back... but just as much because I wanted to try facebook groups.

I think you'll be able to join here at the moment - because it's open

and then I can set it private when we get back
