Mount Manaslu, the 8th highest peak in the world with a height of 8163 meters, lies close to the border of Nepal and Tibet. Featuring majestic views of the mountains as well as a great cultural experience, the Manaslu circuit trek is one of the most delightful adventures in the Nepalese Himalayas. Opened for trekking in 1992, this region offers a combination of rich cultural heritage, unsurpassed beauty and biological diversity.

The Manaslu trek is on the Great Himalayan Trail that connects Tsum Valley, Ganesh Himal and Paldor Peak Base Camp. The remarkable excursion to Manaslu starts by crossing Budhi Gandaki and passing through a huge spectacular valley with dazzling sights of Manaslu. We follow the trail, crossing the famed Larkya La to the region of Sama, and finally returning along the bank of the Marsyangdi river.

Due to a limited number of permits being issued every year, we encounter only a small number of trekkers in the remote areas surrounding Manaslu Base Camp. The villages through which we trek are prevalently Buddhist because of a large Tibetan influence. We travel to the border with Tibet, experience Tibetan lifestyle and culture, enjoy incredible mountain views and hike through lush forests, while trekking through this stunning circuit in the Manaslu region.

The descent takes us first through alpine, then tropical region, saturated with a green hue, with pine trees and turquoise lakes. Finally, Mt. Manaslu will gradually disappear behind us as we descend to Besisahar and fly back to Kathmandu.

All in all, the Manaslu trek is highly recommended and often people find it better than the Annapurna Circuit trek.

20 day trek of Manaslu Circuit and Tsum Valley
“This is a fabulous trek for those looking for a less traveled path. We really enjoyed passing through all the villages and meeting the locals (and donkeys, yaks goats etc) along the way. Very friendly people, we took a large bag of chocolates to hand out to kids which we would recommend. Beautiful scenery, fascinating villages and challenging hiking at times made for an excellent experience that will stay with us. We went in early March, weather was great but some groups were turned back at the pass due to snow. Helps to have some extra days in case weather is bad. Not for beginners or those not in reasonable shape. Enjoyed the quietness of the route (early season). Tsum Valley a definite highlight, would absolutely recommend adding this to Manaslu Circuit or on its own.”

Manalsu circuit trek
“From the start all my questions were answered quickly. On arrival in Kathmandu I was met at the airport and taken to my hotel. All the paperwork for permits etc was done for me. There was a bit of misunderstanding before we set off as I was trekking with some people who were with a different trekking agency but that was soon resolved and the actual trek itself was fantastic right from the moment we left the bus behind and set out on the trail. Our guide, Suman, was the best. He made all arrangements and was always looking out to make sure that everything was ok for us. He was also able to answer most of our questions about the places we went through, the culture, wildlife etc. Altogether this was a special trip for me and it passed all expectations.”

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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.


  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
