From Dal Bhat (a typical Nepali meal) to Indian and continental items, they are available in every tea house or restaurant during the trip to Manaslu.

Unexcepted yet extraordinary journey in Manaslu

Without any plan, My friend and I came to Nepal last October, and while roaming around the Thamel area, I saw many tourists going with heavy backpacks. I got curious and asked one of the tourists where they were going, and he answered, “Oh, trekking.” Then suddenly, my friend and my interest in trekking increased. Then, I searched the Internet for trekking areas and found Boundless Adventure. We went directly to their office at Thamel, opposite the Moonlight Hotel, and I met Mr.Dambar there and had a long conversation. Mr.Dambar provided us with information on different trekking destinations and their allure, and after a lengthy discussion, my friend and I decided on a short Manaslu hike. The journey was extraordinary and took us through varied landscapes. The stunning view of Mount Manaslu was just wow. The beauty of Budhi Gandaki and Marshyangdi River was adorable. The well-planned itinerary and knowledgeable staff made our journey genuinely excellent. Thank you to Dambar Khadka and his team for exceptional service.

Mesmerizing beauty of Manaslu

We had a great experience with Boundless Adventure on the Short Manaslu trek. The tour lasted 13 days, including arrival and departure days. The untouched beauty and rich cultural heritage made our trek to Manalsu worthwhile. The stunning view with every turn and the warm hospitality of the locals made us feel to stay there for a long time. We had an acclimatization day at Samagoan, and grabbing that opportunity, we got to know about the area’s local way of living and their culture deeply. The trek also allowed us to see Nepal’s Natural diversity, from dense forests to high mountain passes. Passing Larkya La pass was the adventurous part of our trek, but our skilled guide calmed us and helped us succeed. After trekking with Boundless Adventure, I can confidently assume that they aim to provide trekkers satisfaction with comfort and safety.

Exceptional service at amazing area

Going through Internat, we find out about Boundless Adventure. I messaged them on WhatsApp and got a quick response. I talked with Mr.Dambar, and he answered my every question politely. I felt good talking with him and asked openly about the trekking area of Nepal, and I found the Short Manaslu hike more exciting and suitable for me. I made an online booking for the tour for my husband and me. The trip was fabulous and smooth; all credit goes to the Boundless Adventure team. As a female, I felt so secure and comfortable, and my husband was also satisfied with the service of the Boundless team. More than just a five-star rating is needed to give to Boundless Adventure.
