This 16-day Manaslu Trek (also known as the Manaslu Circuit Trek) is a remote trek around Manaslu, eighth highest peak in the world. This is a relatively new trekking route and is gaining popularity among trekkers all over.

While the Annapurna Circuit Trek is now disrupted by on-going construction of motor roads, the Manaslu Circuit Trek is the perfect alternative to Annapurna Circuit. For those who do not want to walk on the dusty roads of the Annapurna Circuit, the Manaslu Circuit is the perfect alternative with a similar route, similar views and similar experiences.

With newly developed small tea houses along the route, Manaslu Trek has become a lot easier for trekkers to acquire accommodation and meals. the Manaslu Circuit Trek explores small Buddhist villages with spectacular scenery of snowy peaks, thundering rivers, high passes, wildlife and different Himalayan flowers including the beautiful rhododendrons.

The Manaslu trek will lead you to the highest land attached to Tibet with some opportunities to experience Tibetan-influenced cultures and faiths.

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is getting more and more popular among trekkers as a new trekking route . Manaslu Trekking is a restricted trekking route, you need to use a government licensed trekking agency with private staffs. You can not do independent trekking in this area. Larke (Larkye) La Pass (5,106 meters) is the most difficult point of the trek but it's not worse, weather conditions allowing to cross and meet Annapurna circuit route.

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is the premier moderate-to-difficult grade trekking route in Nepal in terms of mountains, authentic culture and enjoyment. This trek gives you the opportunity to see untouched beauty of nature, gives you your own pace for the walk and lets you experience the life of people in the mountains.

“It was a lot better than we expected as we were traveling in the monsoon season. We knew we were traveling in monsoon season but fortunately, it didn't rain much and we were fine. The lodge in Dharmashala was closed so we had to walk 2 days plan in 1 day, it was tiring but fortunately, the views were great in the Larke pass.”
Great trip with Harry Po(r)tter and Kishna (the mountain wizard)

“We had a great trip. The hike was very beuatiful and quite, since we started the trek at the beginning of March. Not many tourists were on the trek which made it perfect. We had a great time with Harry (guide) and Kishna (Porter) who were always in for jokes and good game of carts.

Only downside was that we couldn't cross the pass, there was to much snow. The upside was we had one day in Shala completely alone, the whole village was empty. We even helped the only local there to make his lodge snow free for us. This was an awesome day since the views were stunning and it was completely quite.

Thanks Harry and Kishna for the great trip!

Thank you”
