The Manaslu Circuit Trek is undoubtedly one of Nepal's best treks if having 14 days available. Between Nepal and Tibet, lies the 8th highest peak in the world Mt Manaslu, also translated into 'The spirit mountain'. The breathtaking scenery that you see along the trials will leave you dazzled and happy.

Through this circuit trek you will visit different villages near the border. You will get a chance to explore palaces, temples and monasteries. Experiencing these sacred traditions of the past make you feel like you have travelled through time. The serenity of rivers, thrilling suspension bridges and great views from elevated panoramic view points makes this trek great.

During the Manaslu trek you gain altitude around the village of Jagat and Philim where you will cross a bridge before a steady climb. Your trek continues towards Deng where you will see some spectacular waterfalls. The beautiful surroundings to Namrung and then to Samagaon will leave you captivated. The hospitality of the people here will inspire you as well. Samagaun is also the point at which trekkers and climbers separate. The climbers will go to Manaslu Base Camp, the starting point for climbing Mt. Manaslu, and trekkers will walk towards the Larke Pass, at an altitude 5,135 m. The day of crossing the Larke Pass it the hardest day of the trek but it's a very rewarding day in terms of views and scenery.

The Manaslu trek will without doubt give you an amazing trekking experience in Nepal.

“The Tsum Valley Trek I did with Nepal Hiking Team on March was a beautiful trek on one of the most secluded regions in the country. It was nice and refreshing to be away from the busy streets of the capital and be on a trail that seems isolated and away from anything and everything. It was humbling o look and observe the lifestyle of the people in the villages and to look at their simple and enduring day-to-day life. I enjoyed my leisurely trek with Nepal Hiking Team very much and am definitely going to go with them again.”

“Manaslu trek itself was a beautiful region and we are glad that it was suggested to us. We initially had not planned for Manaslu but after corresponding with the team and the staff at the office prior to the commencement of the trek, I was suggested the Manaslu Circuit trek and I am glad that I went along with their suggestion. The different and amazing flora and fauna of the region along with its prominent religious significance ad rich history made for a wonderful expedition. Thank you Nepal Hiking Team!”
