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.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much will a trip to Nepal cost?
