highlights
  • Enjoy a trail far less crowded than its more well known peers
  • The trek is full of wild, remote and unique culture.
  • The trailhead is reached over land, avoiding the need for domestic flights
  • The scenery displays all Nepal has to offer
Take time for yourself and join us for this trek through the beautiful forests and lush landscape of Manaslu National Park. Visited by only a few tourists, this park is still unexploited by modern changes, and it is far less crowded than its more well-known peers Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit.

Manaslu national park is home to diverse flora and fauna. During the trekking season, the trail is accompanied by lush rhododendron forests, birds chirping, and a kaleidoscope of butterflies. The trail comes to life with the warm sun and cool mountain breeze. Also on this trek, you will see the beautiful blue waters of the world’s highest lake – Tilicho Lake – at 4919 m.

Hurry up and experience this off-the-beaten track spot while it is still wild and relatively untouched!

Adventure and discoveries

“Last year I trekked around Manaslu with one of Mount 8850's guide. It was a super experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and when he didn't know the answer of one of our questions, he seeks the answers. He was also very friendly and helpful. He took care of everything for us according to our budget and expectations.
Best trekking experience, I would definitely recommend booking a trekking, climbing or biking trip with them.”
Beauty of Nature and Himalayas "Manaslu Circuit Trek"

“I am hereby glad to write this review for Manaslu Circuit Trek as i enjoyed this trek thoroughly along every trail without any kind of problems during the whole trek. Along the trail we stayed in the village of Sama where we saw the magnificent view of Manaslu as we where on the foot of it and We also had a great view of Manaslu from the Birendra Lake as well. We had a challenging trek on the trail of Larke Pass but even though it is tough the view from the top of the Larke Pass was worth it with stunning views of Mountain Ranges. And we were fully taken care with great enthusiasm from the side of our guide and Staff teams along every path and trail of this trek and we want thank them with our bottom of heart for their outstanding services.”

Today, we start trekking in the morning. And after crossing the bridge, the trek climbs up onto a ridge above the huge rapids of Budhi Gandaki and reaches to Khorsaani. Then, the trail, gets a bit precarious as it passes over a big rock and crosses a stream. The rocky trail then goes up and down through large stand of nettles, passes tropical waterfalls and again backs down to the bank of Budhi Gandaki.

Slowly and gradually we gain altitude and enter into alpine territory. We also have increasing mountain views. On the way to Manrung, we find more Mani walls and three more crossings of the Budi Gandaki. Finally, we reach Lho where we will stay overnight.

Today, we resume the trek with a steep descent and a crossing of yet another rock-strewn torrent called Thusang Khola. You will realize that Manaslu and Himalchuli dominate the entire landscape. Then on, across the glacier-fed Numla Khola, the valley drops away to a moraine while we follow the ancient trans-Himalayan trail now just a few kilometers from Tibet.

Descend to the Budi Gandaki, which has turned north, and follow it to a bridge over a side stream. The trail to the left leads to the Manaslu Base camp. The Larkya la Trail passes several mani walls as the valley begins to widen. It is an easy trail on a shelf above the river passing the juniper and birch forests of Kermo Kharka. We drop off the shelf, cross the Budhi Gandaki on a wooden bridge and climb steeply onto a promontory between two forks of the river

Today’s walk starts easily enough. We cross Budhi Gandaki for a final time and pause at the old stone wall of mani inscriptions bidding us well for progress over the pass. The trail gradually rises through juniper and tundra with a viewpoint overlooking the Larkya La Glacier. Further climb will bring us to the memorable Spartan Larkya Rest House.

An early morning start is needed for what is to be a particularly tough and extended day. We start at approx. 4 am to avoid the gale force wind which usually gains in strength after mid-day at the pass. After a long gradual climb alongside a moraine, we make a short descent to a glacial lake and reach the head of the moraine (4700m) which we cross to climb to the ridge top. Four frozen lakes lie below and then it is up to the crest of the Larkya La (5100m). The reward for these difficult trekking conditions is brilliant westerly views of Himlung Himal, Kangurru and Annapurna II as well as the looming omnipresence of Manaslu. Well, the descent is hardly any easier; we drop around 650m in less than an hour.

The toughest days on the trail are behind us. We descend through meadows and through pine and rhododendron forest to reach Hampuk and then after dropping further following the course of the Dudh Khola we arrive at Karche and then onto the village of Gho. Keeping the west bank of the river, the afternoon is one of the gradual descents to the Gurung Settlement of Tilije which has a certain notoriety for apply brandy. We stay overnight in Tilije (2300m) at a local lodge.
