I climb larkya peak 6249m within 22 days of treks to larkya la pass 5163m with the Alpinist club team and every aspect of the trip was superb. Our guides were Kalyan gurung and Samir gurung and the porters were very knowledgeable, helpful, and capable, and we all became friends very quickly. And They were from the Manaslu region. Our group undertook many days of tricky snow and ice-covered path trekking and we felt extremely well guided and looked after at all times. Larkya peak climbing was the biggest challenge, but our spirits and energy were expertly helped by the team. Sinking into the comfortable lounge/dining areas of the tea houses each afternoon, we always appreciated the hot drinks and snacks that were promptly organized. I unreservedly recommend the Alpinist club. I am looking forward to engaging them again for my next expedition to Himlung himal.
Alpinist club, company is one of the top companies in the Himalayas. I’ve been on 2 different adventures with them chulu west and Lobuche peak. They are professional and very nice. My 1st adventure was tack to Chulu west and Thorong la pass which is very successful. I and my wife went in 2018 and had a great time. They have the best hotel to stay in with the best views every night on the trek. They treat you like family the whole time. 2021 / October I recently went to Everest base camp and Lobuche peak with my friends. We did the adventure very safely. We complete base camp and Lobuche. Even Lobuche peak is very difficult and technical. Their guide is very well known about the route and place.
Superb trek, the landscapes are magnificent, the organization on-site at the top (in particular the accommodation, very pleasant surprise). But be careful not to go without preparation !! our acclimatization day and the ascent to Kala Pattar at 5000 meters and more altitude) are physical. Do not forget either a sleeping bag worthy of the name (comfort temperature -5 ° -10 °) essential for cold nights (unheated lodges) big downside.
It was our 1st trek and our 1st trip to the land of adventure and we were delighted from start to finish. Magnificent trek with a great diversity of landscapes depending on the valleys crossed. We were pampered every moment of the stay, the meals were hearty and delicious and the lodges immaculate. The acclimatization program is well respected so that we suffer as little as possible from the altitude. The Nepalese are very welcoming and caring. We leave with beautiful images in our heads of Manaslu circuit trek
Very nice trek to do absolutely, magnificent landscapes, blue sky all along the route and superb views of Manaslu. Quite physical but gradual climbs with still good elevations, the descent after the pass is rough, almost always on the rock. guide Shree supervised us very well, shared a lot about his country, its customs and above all well advised on how to prepare for each step and this in very good French. Super nice local team and very attentive. , I’m not sure that the comfort of the tents is superior to that of the lodges, the humidity and campsites are not always wise, but the magic of the trek is there, brilliant!
We had the chance to do this trek in very good conditions at the end of November, the beginning of December. At this time, there are a lot less people. The management team on site, guides, porters … gave us complete satisfaction. In terms of accommodation, spartan (no heating), the altitude lodges do not have 220V electricity, but on a 12V battery, so no means of recharging for laptops, cameras, batteries etc. and the water is frozen. But all are equipped with Wifi! The hotels, Kathmandu, Pokhara are comfortable. The food in the lodges, rice, vegetables, chicken, apples mainly is good and sufficient for the trek.
