highlights
  • Crossing the Larkya Pass at an altitude of 5,135 m
  • A culturally fascinating region with Tibetan and Gurung cultures
  • Superb trek that is off the beaten path, featuring a diverse and impressive landscape
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.

We kindly refer to the Itinerary tab for a day-by-day overview of the route that we will take. If you have any questions to this trek, please do not hesitate to contact us here at Bookmundi.

Great Trek
Nicolas Hangartner From Switzerland At
4 - Very Good
“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
Robin Cooch From United Kingdom UK At
5 - Excellent
“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.”
Excellent trek
Hong Feng Cai From Hong Kong At
5 - Excellent
“Not like other treks in Nepal that are already too crowded, Manaslu is well worth exploring.”
Manaslu Circuit Trek in April of 2017
Evgueni Kaplounovski From Canada At
5 - Excellent
“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.”
