Mad Trekking - 34 Nights/ 35 Days

Mad trek is combination of three Challenging pass trekking in Manaslu circuit, Trekking in Annapurna circuit and trekking in Dhaulagiri circuit and a long trekking experience of Nepal. Mad Trek is named given by Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expedition first time in Nepal. It is possible that, trekking can already organized by other company also but the program and name of MAD TREK is new and long trekking created by us. So probably we only have Mad Trek itinerary and we have organized this trek already about 10 times. Mad Trek is suitable who have over 35 days holiday in Nepal and who would like to Experience the 3 very popular trekking trail into 1 combined journey for a great memory of lifetime.

Mad TrekkingMad Trek start from Arughat (starting place of Manaslu round trek, this trail follows the Manaslu trekking areas including Larkey Pass and descend to Dharapani and join Annapurna round trek trail up to Tukuche via crossing Thorong la pass( 5416m). Mad trekking then follow anti clock wise route to around Dhaulagiri from some of challenging pass such as French pass, Italian pass and finally end at Beni. This trek therefore covers area of Manaslu trekking, Annapurna circuit trekking and Dhaulagiri trekking.

Mad Trekking is also known as 3 High pass trekking- Manaslu (Larkey Pass), Annapurna (Thorong la pass) and Dhaulagiri (French pass & Hidden Valley). This Trek is normally known as moderate to challenging trekking; trail goes up and down by crossing streams and rivers, forests & Villages, some high pass in all 3 trekking regions. The best part of these Mad trekking is start at one place and end at another place, so you do not need to Trekking back to original place like other trekking in Nepal.

Mad Trekking is also very popular trekking route of Nepal because of famous of mount Annapurna, mount Manaslu and mount Dhaulagiri, these 3 peaks are very poplar Expedition Mountains in Nepal and trekking around this area is one of best experience in Nepal.

Trekking in Manaslu, trekking in Annapurna and Trekking Dhaulagiri area is moderate to challenging trekking and so if you have previous trekking experience, that could be more help, however if you have some trekking experiences in mountain region, then this trek is still possible. Mad trekking does not require experience of many trekking and high pass, but physically sound and mentally prepared with some few experience of previous trek is necessary. Below is itinerary of Mad trekking.

Mountain Sherpa is the best travel company i’ve travelled with...

“ After nearly six months mail communications with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions (I call MOSTREX).I selected MOSTREX service finally for MAD traverse (combined Manaslu Circuit Annapurna Circuit & Dhaulagiri circuit trek. Which was named as MAD Trek) and successfully finished on schedule during April and May 2010.They have lot of experiences for this not-so-common route and gave a reasonable offer. I did it alone in my sixties as their guest for this strenuous and long 40-day trekking.

I darely could say it is worth of trying this remote and somewhat mad and dangerous treks.MOSTREX staff guided me to safe ways and cooked delicious meals for camping trek. They are professional experienced and hard working Team. Service from arrival to ending was well organized.

Thanks again Lale, Indra and Lhakpa for your kind hospitality during trekking without your full support this trek was not possible. I am proud that my dream was fulfilled. It was trek of lifetime experience! And also I thank Pasang for organizing this nice program with speedy and true information for my all questions! I would personally recommend MOSTREX to anyone for great experience trekking & climbing service in Nepal.

Why don’t you also enjoy this MAD trekking with MOSTREX!!!- Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions!!”
