The Manaslu trek is gaining more and more popular. It has sort of taken over the previously great Annapurna Circuit trek which in recent years has gotten too much road-construction.

The Manaslu Trekking region is culturally rich and has great and authentic trekking trails. In fact, it is considered to be one of Nepal's best treks. The trail offers you spectacular mountain scenery, a firsthand experience of ancient Tibetan culture, amazing glaciers, and age-old monasteries, and a high altitude variation allowing for changing landscapes and climatic zones.

The entire trail runs through the Manaslu Conservation Area was which was established in 1998. It covers an area of 1663 square kilometres and harbours 33 different species of mammals, 110 species of birds, 11 species of butterflies, and 3 species of reptiles. You will trek through 6 different climatic zones: tropical, subtropical, temperate, sub-alpine, alpine and arctic. The extreme contrasts within this approximately 200 km trail are associated with tremendous differences in topography and precipitation.

The eighth highest mountain in the world, Mount Manaslu (8163 m) is located near the border of Nepal and Tibet. Actually, the name Manaslu literally means ‘The Spirit Mountain’ in local language. Trekking Manaslu is one of the most delightful adventures in the Nepalese Himalayas.

This is truly a trek of a lifetime, in which you will be blown away by the spectacular scenery not just once but many times.

Great Trek
“Great experience. If you're not afraid of the somewhat basic lodging conditions, you'll not be disapointed. Landscapes are so dramatics, with so many nice little villages and not a lot of trekkers on it. Do it before it becomes too popular (which it will be soon, I'm afraid!)”

amazing trek
“Amazing trek. If you want no roads, very varied scenery (low and high altitudes), Tibetan villages, and much less tourists that Annapurna this is the one for you. I did it 2nd half of November when was a bit quieter and before higher risk of snow. Would recommend this time but it cold high up.”

“Not like other treks in Nepal that are already too crowded, Manaslu is well worth exploring.”

Manaslu Circuit Trek in April of 2017
“This is a really exciting trek. I have been hiking/mountaineering for nearly 20 years, and on this trek walked through almost all terrain encountered previously. Yet, it is not overly demanding physically and has no technical difficulties. Exposure to different peoples and cultures also leaves a lasting impression.”

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.

  • If I book the Manaslu circuit trek can I add a porter when I get there?

    If you already know you want a porter, you can add a porter at the time of booking as an add-on. I would advise that you add a porter beforehand, Manaslu is a bit more off the beaten path and there is no guarantee you will get a porter there. Otherwise, you can inform your guide upon arrival and the tour operator can try and arrange one for you.

  • 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.
