    By Kelly Gleason May 9, 2024
    Going on the Manaslu Circuit Trek with Mosaic Adventure was an amazing experience that exceeded all our expectations. My two friends and I were very happy with the excellent service we received from Mosaic Adventure right from the start. Everything was well organized, and the entire trip went smoothly, making our journey very enjoyable. When we arrived in Nepal, we met our guide, Ramesh, and next day our porter, Prabin, who made our trip special. They were professional and friendly, helping us feel comfortable and welcome. Ramesh had a deep knowledge of Nepal’s history and culture, which made our trek even more interesting. Prabin was cheerful and hardworking, always bringing a smile to our faces. The Manaslu Circuit is known for its beautiful and challenging trails, and Mosaic Adventure made sure we were well prepared for the trek. Starting from Machha Khola, we climbed up to Larkya La with the support of our team. Traveling through Machha Khola to Dharapani, was a tough but rewarding trek, and we enjoyed the stunning views of the Himalayas. Although the trek was challenging, Mosaic Adventure took great care of us so we could focus on the beautiful landscapes and cultural experiences. Looking back, we were grateful for Ramesh and Prabin's insights into Nepal and the Manaslu region. Their enthusiasm and knowledge made the trek memorable and their company made our journey even more special.

    In November, we went on the Manaslu trek with Mosaic Adventure. Madhav, the owner, made sure we were safe and happy, providing helpful advice and quick responses. Meeting Madhav and our guide Sonam, before the trek made it more special. Sonam's knowledge made the trek enjoyable, with Subh, our porter, adding to the fun. Sonam checked on us every day and made sure we are doing good. We recommend Mosaic Adventure for their hard work and dedication. Here's to great adventures! Cheers!
  10. Incredible experience
    By John Trygve November 25, 2023
    Our incredible experience on the Manaslu circuit trek, organized by Mosaic Adventure, was truly remarkable. After enjoying the Poon Hill trek with them a few years back, we made the decision to book with them once again for this more extensive trek. Our group of 7 was expertly guided by Ramesh as the main guide, alongside Bala as the assistant guide. Both individuals showed professionalism, friendliness and helpfulness throughout the journey. They provided support at every turn, ensuring that each member, regardless of their pace, received the necessary guidance and assistance. Without a doubt, Ramesh and Bala were key to the success of our trek. The trek itself was adorned with stunning views of the Himalayan peaks. While crossing the pass was a bit challenging but the rewards were undoubtedly worth the effort. Overall, our experience was enjoyable and we highly recommend selecting a team like theirs who is committed to ensuring trekkers receive the best possible experience on such a demanding adventure.
  11. Thank you!
    By Oscar Julius November 23, 2023
    Our experience with Mosaic Adventure on our first trek in Nepal, specifically the Manaslu Circuit trek, was truly excellent. From our initial communication until the conclusion of the journey, there is nothing for us to complain about. Madhav, with whom we corresponded via email before booking the trip, was prompt in his responses and consistently addressed our inquiries without hesitation. The balance between the prices they offered and the service provided was commendable. Our guide, Pralhad and porter, Singh, were both exceptionally kind. Pralhad, in particular, demonstrated professionalism and expertise throughout our journey, offering seamless guidance. Choosing Mosaic for my Manaslu trek was a decision I'm grateful for. Thank you!
  12. Manaslu Circuit Review
    By Patricia Etien November 13, 2023
    Trekking around Manaslu was amazing! We saw stunning views and met friendly locals. Our guide Pralhad knew everything about the area and helped us a lot. He was always calm and made sure we stayed safe, even on tough paths. Whenever we felt tired, Pralhad cheered us up. The places we stayed at were cozy. Big thanks to our porters who carried our stuff with a smile. Can't wait to come back and maybe have Pralhad with us again!
  13. Wonderful journey exploring Manaslu
    By Angie Burgess October 19, 2023
    We recently completed an amazing trip to Manaslu with our fantastic guide, Ramesh. He was friendly, attentive and took excellent care of our group throughout the journey. Our porters, Harka and Santabir, were incredibly helpful and supportive. It felt like a family adventure with such caring locals accompanying us. We highly recommend the Manaslu circuit trek with Mosaic Adventure.
  14. Wonderful Trek Around Manaslu
    By Melissa Doherty October 8, 2023
    Our trek exploring the Manaslu Circuit is one of the best trips I have ever done. Ramesh from Mosaic Adventure was our guide and Rabi was the porter on our Manaslu Circuit Trek. The trek itself was challenging, as we had to walk long hours every day on rough terrain and the high altitude made it difficult. However, with Ramesh by our side, we really felt comfortable. He is experienced, professional, friendly, and really attentive to us. Rabi also carried our stuff for the entire trip without any complaint. It was nice to have these two in our team for such an adventure. Overall, it was an incredible trip with amazing people in the Himalayas of Nepal.
  15. Manaslu Circuit Trek with Manoj
    By Jason Clarke September 27, 2023
    I completed the 12-day Manaslu Circuit trek with guide Manoj and porter Ram. It was an incredibly amazing 12-day experience that we had. Our guide and porter were always there, ready to help and support us throughout the trek. Our guide helped us keep our spirits high and pushed us at times when we really needed some encouragement. We hope to be back again for another trek, and I am sure it will be with Manoj and Ram.
  16. A good value trek with a professional team

  18. My Experience on the Manaslu Circuit Trek with Mosaic Adventure
    By Adam Brooks March 25, 2023
    I just returned from the Manaslu Circuit Trek, which was guided by Pralad, and it was a great experience. The 12-day itinerary is the best way to fully immerse yourself in the wonderful trail around the Manaslu area. The bus ride was not very pleasant, but I was well informed about the option to take a private jeep. However, I couldn't afford it, so I didn't choose it. If you can afford it, I recommend taking the private jeep option. The trip was well-planned, as advertised, and perfectly organized from beginning to end. The pre-trek information and answers to our questions provided by Madhav were timely and informative. Pralhad, our guide, was always there for us when we needed him. It was great to see Nepal through his eyes. Our porter, Ram, was like a superman, carrying our heavy packs. We couldn't have done it without Madhav, Pralhad, and Ram. We hope to return for another trek and would definitely recommend Mosaic Adventure to anyone planning a trek in Nepal.
  19. 12-Day Manaslu Circuit Trek
    By Ruth D. March 16, 2023
    I had an amazing experience with Mosaic Adventure! Every person I encountered, from the person who communicated with me prior to booking the trip to our guide and porters, was amazing. They were all highly professional and clearly passionate about their work. Speaking of our guide, Pralhad was exceptional. He was not only kind and friendly but also incredibly knowledgeable about the area. When I fell ill during the hike, he quickly assessed the situation and made adjustments to our itinerary, ensuring that the experience remained positive and enjoyable for everyone in the group. I couldn't be happier with my experience with Mosaic Adventure and would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a fantastic Nepalese adventure. Their team goes above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of the trip is perfect, and I can't wait to book another trip with them in the future!
  20. It was an incredible experience
    By Andre Bernard December 30, 2022
    I did Manaslu Circuit trek last month with Mosaic Adventure and it was an incredible experience. It was really easy to book our tour with them. Before booking the trip we communicated with Madhav through Whatsapp. He managed to answer all of our questions and made proper suggestions based on our requirements. Everyone we met at Mosaic was professional, enthusiastic and ready to help all the time. We had an excellent guide and porters on our hike. Our guide Ramesh was really wonderful who made a successful and enjoyable trek around Manaslu. Ramesh is professional, caring, attentive and friendly and took care of everyone to have fun experience. I would highly recommend Mosaic Adventure to anyone who is planning to book their trek to Nepal.
  21. Magnificient Trek to well preserved trail
    By Tom Kenyon December 28, 2022
    It was great trek with our super friendly guide Ramesh Adhikari who was very attentive and caring. Manaslu Circuit is challenging trek but worth every step. Unspoiled land with blue sky and amazing views. Highly recommend Mosaic Adventure and this amazing trail.
  22. Fortunate to experience Manaslu Circuit Trek
    By Sofia Fess December 7, 2022
    Last year, we had experienced Mosaic Adventure’s Annapurna base camp and we were extremely impressed with the entire tour. Instantly, we knew that we had to return and so last October we were also fortunate to experience the Manaslu Circuit Trek. Having experienced the quality service provided by team Mosaic in the past, we were confident of receiving the same this time around as well and they did not disappoint. In my opinion, this trek is quite energy intensive and requires great stamina but putting those things aside, it provides quite possibly the best scenic views. We really had the opportunity to experience the ever-changing terrain, flora and fauna through this trek. For me, the Manaslu was truly a sight to behold, especially with its glorious snow laden peak. Overall, it was really enjoyable and unforgettable adventure for us.
  23. Mosaic's Marvel
    By Kristyn Leigh November 15, 2022
    Our Manaslu Circuit Trek was truly the trip of a lifetime! From start to finish, the experience was nothing short of incredible. Guided by Rishi and supported by our dedicated porters, every member of our group was seamlessly catered to, whether it was accommodating sick days or any other individual needs. Not only were they efficient, but they also added a delightful touch of friendship to our journey. Rishi's expertise, along with his valuable tips and tricks, made our trekking experience truly exceptional. I owe the unforgettable memories of this trip to the outstanding team from Mosaic Adventure. Rishi, who speaks English fluently, made communication effortless, while Mosaic's seamless handling of administrative processes like permits, teahouse arrangements and meals were top notch. Rishi was great at ensuring our well being from day one, earning him a well deserved 5-star rating. If I come to Nepal again, without a doubt, I would do another trek with Mosaic Adventure.
  24. Perfect guide
    By Sam and Laura November 19, 2019

  26. Enjoyable trip in Nepal
    By Noel Ng October 1, 2015
    I was on the less popular Manaslu trek with Mosaic. Mosaic offered one of the most competitive pricing for this trek but be assured that the good price in no way compromise the level of service rendered. Madhav, the business manager, was very prompt in replying to all my pre-trip enquiries which prompted me to sign up the trek with Mosaic ultimately. Many other agencies took ages to reply if they did reply at all.After meeting Madhav in person, I find that he is very friendly and helpful and is always ready to help with any matters regardless they are trek or non-trek related which is a really nice gesture. Administratively wise, I have absolutely no issues with Mosaic. Also, the accomodation that Mosaic arranged in Kathmandu is one of the best if not the best in its class The company also appears to have strict hiring criteria and their guides are of exceptional quality. My guide for Manaslu is Krishna who is in his early thirties and has a very good command of English. He's very familiar with the route having been on Manaslu trek for the 10th time (unlike other guides I've met on the trek, some could not even identify which is the manslu peak!). Krishna was very competent and was able to advise accurately the terrain and the places we are crossing or about to cross. On the big day of crossing Larke pass, my group was the only one that set off after daylight (quarter to 6) while other groups with guides less familiar with the trek decided to set off in the dark as early as 2am. My group was the 2nd to reach the destination that day but took the least time albeit me and the danish girl in the group may not be the fittest person around. I attribute the efficiency to Krishna's familiarity of the trail and because we did not have to spend unnecessary energy trekking in the dark. I can't say for other treks, but for Manaslu Krishna is definitely the guy. Members and guides of other groups often came to him for advice which says a lot about his competency on this trek. Beside being competent, Krishna was also very caring and attentive to all our needs. He pays attention to the food we eat and will do the cooking himself if he feels the cook at the tea house is not good enough. He also carried a lot of fruits with him that last us throughout the trek even though it means additional load for him. Having fruits every night was one of the few luxuries you will learn to appreciate on the manaslu trek. In short, I simply could not fault him in any ways. I simply could not imagine myself signing up with another company for a Nepal trek especially after having seen other trekkers having lots of issues with their guides (poor English, overcharging, lying, under aged porters etc). I was really glad I chose Mosaic and I will definitely go back to them the nest time I'm in Nepal. I would highly recommend Mosaic to anyone looking for an enjoyable trip in Nepal.
