HIGHLIGHTS
  • Feel like a pioneer traveling to a remote, restricted area near Nepal's Tibet border
  • Traverse the 5167metre Larke La Pass
  • See Mount Manaslu, the eighthhighest peak in the world
The Manaslu Circuit trek takes you back in time as far as trekking experience in Nepal's Himalayas goes - back to the days when some of the most popular trekking trails in the country hardly saw travelers and services were basic. Join us on this 14-day guided trek that starts from humid lowlands, across high suspension bridges and torrential rivers all the way to high mountains with sparse settlements and pristine landscape.

Drive to Soti Khola from Kathmandu on the first day of the trek. Hit the trail and head for Sama Gaun via Jagat, Namrung and Lho. Spend a day in Sama Gaun and continue uphill to Samdo and Dharmasala. Cross the Larke La Pass on Day 12. The trip comes to an end in Beshi Sahar, from where you can make your way to either Pokhara (three hours by bus) or back to Kathmandu.

While some days will take you through ethnic villages and yak pastures, others involve hiking through forests, traversing rocky hillside trails and along roaring rivers. In the backdrop are high mountains that inch closer every day.

Please note that special permits (included in the tour price) and a minimum of two travelers are required to carry out this trek.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • How much will a trip to Nepal cost?

    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. 

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • 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 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.
