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.

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.
