Tsum Valley with Manaslu Circuit

We just finished Manaslu Circuit Trek with this company. The trek was my dream for many years, now it became possible only with effort of AMN Trekking and Climbing (P) Ltd and great management of Pradip and Ajeeb. I really cannot express it was my lifetime experience with very knowledgeable guide, fine accommodation, delicious meals, friendly driver, very honest our luggage carrying staff (Porter). I’m really missing them all.

Wish you the entire best Adventure Mountain Trekking organizer….!!! Namaste again!!!!!
