Dear sir,

thanks very much about the inquiry for the manaslu trekking. October 5 is the Monday. In the final process of the manaslu permit , we need original passport. to show  permit section(immigration office)so, if your flight is official time 10 AM to -4 Pm. we can process your permit application in the first phase by the photocopy of the passport and scanning copy of the 4  Pp size photo . At the final stage there is need a original passport. so, here is two alternative things for you. You have to start on October 6 trekking or your flight landing before 1 Pm in Kathmandu so that same days.
Second things there is a bus to Arughat only in the morning time, other time you have to hire a jeep to Arughat or soti khola. so, first i have to know  your flight time  or seclude.  I like to ask you , you hire a jeep or going by bus.  from Dharapani or after finished the manaslu trekking there is possible sharing jeep. so, in my views it is better to  go Arughat on 6 october for the cheap transportation. It is around $250 usd for the Jeep. but at the time of the back Dharapani to Benshiar it is $20 per person.
         As  you know the permit cost of the manaslu  $70 for the restriction permit, ACAP and MCAP cost $40(together)

Guide and porter cost per person per day $25. we give the 15 days trekking itinerary so, 15 days guide and porter Total salary $750 usd(Both person)
Restriction  permit service charge $50 usd per person. Because restriction areas there is tax and vat have to pay the government from the agency.

if you do this in package it cost $1150 usd per person, including tax vat, guide, permit, food, transportation for the manaslu trekking.
   if you have any confusion about this and any question about guide and trail as well as tea house let me know. Keep and  touch.

Reviews of the Manaslu trekking:
I reviews the manaslu trekking many times in my blog. I been there Manaslu base camp as well as the Larkya pass many times. I felt difficult days from Dharmashala to larkya pass. Dharmashala to Larkya pass difficult because of the high altitude. And down from the Larkya pass, it is difficult till the Bhimtang because all the way down and some places are slippery if there are snow. i feel difficult from Ghat to Namrung.From Deng to reach Namrung it is the tight itinerary take a whole days.From Namrung way is easier just it is up after Lho. there are up and down after Lho village then coming to Shayala then 2 hours to the Samagaon. Many travel book and blog reviews about the Sama village which is base of the Mount. Manaslu.Samagaon to samdo is just 3 hours different. Because of the more tourist in the manaslu trekking now economic of the local people also very good. 

Manaslu trekking without Package
Manaslu trekking without package just hiring a Guide possible. Without package guide cost per day $30 usd and in the package there are include the Guide, food,accommodation ,Government tax,vat etc. 14 Days manaslu trekking cost $1050 usd per person. some blog and forum frequently asking the question about manaslu trekking without package.we frequently said ,Manaslu trekking without package is possible but without guide  impossible.
I meet some trekkers go manaslu trekking,they just pay the half money of  the guide but donot take the Guide. Check post of the Jagat donot enter them to go further up and check post of the Manaslu phone the office who make the permit of the manaslu but office know already this things they didnot response the call. Again from Samagaon and Samdo police check post , phone to the agency again they didnot response the call. trekkers are the customer,so they are always right. but trekking agency of manaslu must clear the future coming problem in the case of no sending the Guide. so, we always give right information  and if any things happen , we will take the 100 percent responsibility. Our Manaslu trek agency always take 100 percent response about the trek.

Why Manaslu trekking become so popular in a short time?
From 2011 Manaslu trek take a high step and popularity as a tea house trekking in Nepal. Before there was no Hotel in Dharmashala and other areas.Just there was a local lodges and camping trekkers used no hotels. After Dharmasha la and other places established the hotel then  lots of tea house trekkers coming like a other popular tea house trek in Nepal. Second reason increasing more tourist are road access to the Annapurna region.
