I did the Manaslu trek with two friends under the excellent supervision of Ram Adhikari.
On our arrival we were exhausted from the long flight, but Ram's enthousiasm woke us up.
We went for dinner and drinks and it was immediately clear to us that we hit the guide-jackpot. He was eager to start the trek, grateful that we visited Nepal and we had a lot of fun already on the first night.
Before we left, Ram explained what we were going to face and made sure we had the right equipment.
Manaslu is a wonderful trek, it's intense, but Ram guided us perfectly. Being serious when it's needed, joking around at other times. Always checking if we were feeling ok, adjusting the plan when needed. He is in love with the mountains and knows incredibly much. His genuine concern of making the best for our trip just made this the most incredible experience I've ever had.
Besides a superb guide, he's also a great person.
He knows a lot of people along the route and was continuously greeting and joking with the locals. During the trek he regularly handed out candies and fruits to children in the villages.
If you consider for Nepal to be your next travel destination, don't doubt and and just book Ram!More
