The Manaslu Trek has sort of replaced the previously famous Annapurna Circuit. Manaslu lies just 50 km East of Annapurna Circuit and has no roads or alike (which Annapurna Circuit has nowadays). The entire Manaslu trekking trail is fantastic, starting at low altitude and gradually gaining altitude day-by-day. The habitat in which we will be trekking has pristine nature and great mountain landscape.
The natural scenes combined with high altitude glacier lakes gives a great feeling of peace and tranquility. The rich flora and fauna is outstanding. You will also likely meet climbers attempting to climb Mt Manaslu, the world's eight highest mountain in the world (8,156 meters). You will be getting great and close-up views of Mt. Manaslu several times. Aside from great trails and high altitude variation, this trek will also lead you through many local villages and you will pass by many monasteries.
If you are able to walk up to 6-7 hours a day plus a couple of days rest for acclimatisation, you can do this 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.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
