Manaslu round trekking opened to trekkers in 1991, It takes backpackers near to the Tibetan border, which is also why this trek requires a special trekking permit. The trek circumnavigates the mighty Mt. Manaslu, which at 8,156 meters is the eighth highest peak in the world. Besides a panoramic view of the peak, the trek also allows trekkers to observe the diverse wildlife and vegetation of Nepal along with the ancient Buddhist traditions practiced in this remote region.
Take this opportunity to observe the Gurung and Buddhist cultures in this relatively untouched area.
We really had fun time exploring the deep himalayas despite it's physical and mental challanges. It really helped us push our body and mind to new limits and refreshed our minds. Indulging into the untouched wilderness of Manaslu region was truely an himalayan experience. The combinaton of nature, people and the experience of our guide Roshan made our trip very fruitful. Nepal really is beautiful and breathtaking.

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.
