  • Marvel at the magnificent views of Mount Manaslu (8163m)
  • Witness the rich local heritage and biological diversity of the region
Explore the beautiful Manaslu Region of Nepal on this 18-day trekking trip! The remoteness and secluded nature of the area make this trek a great choice for those looking to find some solitude or be immersed in nature and offer something different from the busier Annapurna Region.

The trip begins with sightseeing of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu and takes adventurers to trek in the beautiful Manaslu region. While on the trip, we get to marvel at the magnificent views of Mount Manaslu (8163m), the eighth tallest mountain in the world, coupled with a chance to witness the rich local heritage and biological diversity of the region. The highest point in this trek is the ‘Larkya La Pass’ which is widely believed to be one of the most dramatic passes crossing the Himalayas.

Like all our carefully-planned itineraries, this trek also ensures adequate time for proper acclimatization. Much of the trek involves walking on mountain trails and is within the capabilities of people with good cardiovascular fitness. Still, it is important to note that trekking at altitudes above 3000m/10,000ft is more demanding on the body than walking at low elevations.

Learn more about insurance coverage for different activities and the prominent insurance companies before you plan your trip VISA Acquiring required visa(s) is the sole responsibility for every individual traveler before planning your Around Manasalu Trek as visa requirements may vary depending on the nationality of an individual traveler. For most nations, there is a visa on arrival provision in Nepal’s International Airport. However, we recommend that you check with your local consulates which represent the country you will be traveling to, as a part of this program as well as find more details about passport and visa requirements in Nepal. Is this trip right for you? • What is the main highlight of Manaslu Trek? The main highlight of Manaslu Trek is its highest point Larkya La Pass, which is considered as one of the most dramatic passes crossing the Himalayas- the most promising adventure indeed. Apart from that, you will get to treat yourself to an eye-catching view of magnificent Mt. Manaslu. • What is the difficulty level of Manaslu Trek? The difficulty level of the Manaslu trek is pretty moderate. You do not require specific climbing or mountaineering skills, but you need to fit both physically and mentally. The first few days of the trail go through the harrowing steep Budi Gandaki Gorge and lots of uphill and downhill walks. So we recommend you come prepared with proper physical training. • Is there a best season for Manaslu Trek? Manaslu Trek is a true adventure ride. However, it becomes risky to complete the trail in the winter months of January and February due to heavy snowfall. The monsoon brings heavy rainfall, causing floods and landslides during June, July, and August. So, the best season for the Manaslu trek is in fall from October, November, and pre-monsoon from March to May.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
