Manaslu circuit permit

Posted by in Trekking in Nepal 2014-07-23 02:41:49

Hello, a friend of mine and I want to do the Manaslu circuit trek this Autumn. What is the permit situation there? I'm getting really confused since some sources state that you need a guide while other people claim to have done it independently (or to have seen other people doing it independently).

Has anyone done it recently? Could you please share your knowledge?

    As per the rules, since Manaslu is one of the restricted areas to trek (special permit required and need a guide or at least one Nepali staff. It is not possible to trek here independently as per the rules.

    Hi Yeti

    Thanks for the question.

    I agree with what Unique Adventure International has said. A couple of small additions:

    - in order to trek there you need to be at least 2 trekkers (and be accompanied by a guide, or local Nepali as mentioned above)

    - you are probably correct that perhaps a few people have done it independently. However, I am sure this is only a few people as then they have circumvented the Nepali rules.

    I hope the above clarifies and should you need any further input Yeti, please do not hesitate to let us know.
