In may 2013 I was on Manaslu trek with Trekking mr sanjib My recommended trek guide my one a friends used to him trek to manaslu . I have to recommend Mr. Sanjib , because He was everything wall right (permits, pick up from the airport, guest house, transport to the starting place of the trek). And He was very friendly, he was willing to help us with everything (carrying the beg, find some extra blanket or just to explain about places where we were). Next time in Nepal I will use Sanjib again. He is based and experience guide in Himalayas, we are defiantly recommended to him who are intesed trek and tour in Nepal
