I used some of my self isolation time to create another video, which I hope might help some people to decide what trek to do (once treks can be done).
I compared the Annapurna Circuit to the Manaslu Circuit based on the treks we did on both of them in late 2019. The aspects I decided to look into in details are time and stage planning, transport to the trail head and back, permits, deciding about hiring a guide, costs of that, walking and sleeping altitudes, difficulty, safety, remoteness, lodging, local culture, and landscape.
Rather than deciding what is the better trek I tried to give some hints at the end regarding what "type" of trekker might enjoy which of the two more and why.
Take a look in case you're interested:
PS: I am aware that many people love the Annapurna Circuit dearly (me included) and I recognized a number of times that criticizing it in whatever way tends to offend some of these people.
Everything I say in that video is my very own humble personal opinion and I hope i made that clear enough in this video. Please consider this more like a starting point for good discussions rather than some guy claiming what he says is the ultimate truth.
