The combination of the Manaslu and Annapurna Circuits make this section of the Great Himalaya Trail a must do for first time trekkers to Nepal and Himalayan enthusiasts alike. This section of the GHT combines the Manaslu Circuit, with the region's most famous trail, the northern section of the Annapurna Circuit, to produce a superb trek that will challenge any Himalayan trekker! Circling Manaslu (8163m), the world's seventh highhest mountain, is a rugged and less developed trail through ancient Buddhist villages close to the Tibetan border, which culminates in a crossing of the high and windswept Larkye La (5105m). From there, the trail descends and intersects with the classic Annapurna Circuit in the village of Dharapani. We head north along this very scenic trail, with great views of the Annapurna massif, and once again gain in altitude as we trek through Manang and eventually over the Thorung La (5416m). The views from this pass are exceptional, stretching out over the Tibetan plateau and the region of Mustang. We descend the pass through the important pilgrimage town of Muktinath and onto Kagbeni, an ancient village with a great location on the Kali Gandhaki Gorge.

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 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?
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.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
