Manaslu Circuit Trek offers once in a lifetime opportunity of experiencing a round trek around the 8th highest Himalaya in the world. Manaslu Circuit Trek is also the best alternative for Annapurna Circuit for trekkers.

With the trekking experience, you can also feel the diversity in topographical terms. Trek through tropical green forest vegetation at lower elevations to alpine surroundings at Larkya La Pass from where a superb view is seen, which includes Himal Himlung (7,125m), Cheo Himal (6,820m), Kang Guru (6,981m), Annapurna II (7,939m), and Manaslu (8163m).

Manaslu Circuit Trek initiates after we arrive at Arughat, the starting point of this adventure. Crossing through culturally rich villages, local settlements, forests while enjoying stunning Himalayan vistas landscape views, the valley opens up to alpine surroundings where Buddhist villages at Nepal - Tibet border can be found.

Manaslu Circuit Trek is a challenging trek that exposes you to rough terrains, off the beaten paths, with rewarding Himalayan views and rich cultural insights. Our itinerary is well designed to allow the best possible acclimatization, but you will need to ensure you are physically prepared for the trek.

The best time to trek around Manaslu Circuit is March to May and September to November. However, going on this trek in colder months is not recommended because Larkye La pass is dangerous during extreme snow conditions.

Please refer to the itinerary for day-by-day activities.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • 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.

     

  • 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 Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • 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.
