The Manaslu region is one of the isolated trekking regions that offers several thrilling trekking routes and mountain adventures throughout the entire world.

The Manaslu Circuit Trekking route takes you to some of the remotest villages, several beautiful waterfalls, amazing rivers, and enchanting landscapes of lush green land and magical mountain ranges.

The entire trail lies in the preservation area of the Manaslu region, which has so far kept the wildlife and vegetation in their natural state. You will observe the natural beauty unaltered or very little influenced by modern touches. The local tribes have learned to co-exist with high respect and regard for nature and its components.

Manaslu Circuit Trek Package, an incredible Alternative to Annapurna Circuit

This beautiful Manaslu Circuit Trek Package starts after you arrive in Nepal. But the actual trekking day starts from Soti Khola in the Budi Gandaki river valley.

As you pass Aarughat, following the trails alongside the spectacular river of Budhi Gandaki, you reach the highest point in Larke Pass at an elevation of 5125m. This mountain pass takes you on a tougher descent towards the famous Annapurna Circuit Trekking and finally to the endpoint of Besisahar.

If you’ve just been to the Annapurna circuit, this Manaslu trek can be an incredible alternative. It is a 14-day trek that begins at Soti Khola and finishes at Beshi Sahar. We can also stretch the Manaslu Trek out to 22 days with an extra side trek to the Tsum valley.

Why Manaslu Circuit Trek?

The Manaslu Circuit Trek Package is a classic trekking tour in Nepal that takes you to remote sections of the country with stunning landscapes. The route is wild and isolated, and the scenery provides everything that Nepal offers. Here are a few reasons to trek to the Manaslu Circuit:

  • The Manaslu Region, between Jagat and Dharapani, is a restricted area for tourism control. So, trekking to the restricted area will be full of adventures and thrills with a classic touch of nature.
  • Crossing the high mountain pass, Larkya La Pass, at 5106 m, is itself an adventurous journey.
  • You will walk through the forest trails with fantastic mountain views that showcase the wilderness of the region. Trekking through these trails will add a natural scent to your Manaslu trek.
  • Many monasteries, gompas, and Mani walls discuss how to reflect Buddhism and their culture.
  • You will explore the Birendra Tal, a freshwater lake in the Manaslu Glacier, with our trekking experts.
  • You will trek through the remote villages, rocky landscapes, and beautiful streams that provide a great sense of the village lifestyle in the hilly region. These regions are less touched by modernization and are in their natural form.
  • During your rest day at Samagaon, we will trek to Birendra Tal, or Manaslu Base Camp, the base camp of the world’s 8th highest mountain, Manaslu.
  • Manaslu Trek is a restricted and new trekking route, so there will be a few travelers in the region. It can be a benefit for you, as the routes will be calm. You will hear the sounds of rivers and streams, the chirping of birds, and the cool breeze that blows from the great Manaslu instead of human voices.

Most of the teahouses on the Manaslu Trekking trail have squat toilet facilities but recently built lodges have western-style toilets as well. Nowadays, flush toilets are also being introduced with number of increasing trekkers each year. It is highly recommended to carry your own toilet paper and other required toiletries. Do not expect full bath or daily showers while on the Manaslu trek. If you insist on taking a hot shower daily, spare a lot of money for that. For hot water showers in the trek, you have to pay a few dollars at a time.

Do I need to bring any bags for trekking? If yes, what kind?

During the Manaslu trekking, you will be on a long journey for which you will need two bags to keep your belongings. A rucksack/duffle bag and a day bag for personal items.

They are not essential though and the walk is manageable without them. It is mostly a personal preference. If you prefer to take the trekking poles with you on the trekking then you can either bring your own pole or buy it from numerous options available in Kathmandu itself.

What problems can arise on high altitude?

Our itinerary has been specially tailored to prevent any kind of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) while moving up to higher altitudes. Normally, altitude sickness starts from 3,600 meters and above. You will be trekking at a relatively slow and gradual pace as part of the acclimatization process. Cut off caffeinated, alcoholic and smoking items. Drink at least 4 liters of water a day. Trek slow. Don’t skip the acclimatization days. Better to continue with Diamox (if any symptoms show up). Drink Garlic Soup. In the higher elevation, there is less oxygen in the air and this is more so while crossing high passes. Our expert guides will advise you on how to avoid AMS and treat it when/ if required.

Do I need insurance for Manaslu trekking?

Make sure to have both medical and evacuation insurance before coming to Nepal for Manaslu trekking. You should be careful in choosing a policy while traveling to a Himalayan country like Nepal as some insurance companies may make special exceptions for adventure travel.

Additional Info

Manaslu Circuit Trek Accommodation

There are a series of hotels, and lodges in Kathmandu based on your interest and budget. As you hike up the mountains, we will use the best amiable teahouses and lodges operated by local communities.

The teahouses are comfortable with two single beds in a room. There is a typical territory for dinners and unwinding, which is an incredible spot to remain warm around the fire in the evening time.

Best Time to go on a Manaslu Circuit Trek

The best time to go on a Manaslu Circuit Trek is duringthe autumn (September- November) and spring (March-May) Seasons in Nepal. The days are bright and cool, which provides unobstructed views of the things around the mountains.

During Monsoon, the trails become slippery and full of leeches. The continuous rainfall might affect the journey. So, we don’t recommend trekking to Manaslu during the summer in Nepal. Likewise, trekking in winter can also be a good option, but the fog might cover all the beautiful scenes of the mountains. Also, the extreme cold in the mountains might become problematic for you.

Permits Required for Trekking in Manaslu Region

Trekking in the Manaslu region was only opened for a maximum of 400 trekkers in the year 1992. Still, we need a Restricted Area Permit for Manaslu (Manaslu RAP) to enter the region.

Likewise, you will need the Manaslu Conservation Area Project (MCAP Permit) to enter the Conservation Area. Further, we will trek through the Annapurna Conservation Area for two days, so we also need the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP Permit).

Manaslu circuit trek is open for all, and yet foreign travelers may not wander or trek alone. You must hire a guide or at least a porter allowed by the Nepal Trekking association.

Trekking with an agency has two benefits. First is that you get to see the best of the region, always getting adequate and real information about most of everything, which also helps in the preservation of the natural and environmental aspects. Second, you will contribute to the economic uplift of local guides and entrepreneurs.

There’s nothing to worry about because Pack Ur Bags Nepal  will fulfill the requirements and arrange all the permits in your name.

Manaslu Circuit Trek Difficulty

The Manaslu trekking routes are rough and require much effort both physically and mentally to overcome the stress and tiredness. As you progress, you will cross the highest pass of Larke pass, which is 5125 m above sea level. Thus, compared to Annapurna and Everest, the Manaslu Circuit trek is strenuous in difficulty level because of the lack of proper paved or constructed paths and guided routes. Similarly, the variation of the altitude can be very challenging to cope with for people traveling here for the first time. So, it’s always a better option to train for any kind of trekking in the Mountains before you start the journey. You can walk or hike at least a few kilometers daily for almost 2, or 3 weeks. You can work on your cardiovascular fitness in the Gym. Most of all, mental preparation is a fundamental thing before starting any treks and hikes in the mountains. If you are confident about the trek and have firm determination to step into the journey, then you will be successful. We will offer you a guide and porters during your trip. The porters will help you carry your loads, and the guide will be there to explain things and boost your immunity.
