Book with us and discover the Manaslu region with this 19-day, guided trip. Standing 8,156 metres above sea level, Mount Manaslu is the world’s eighth highest mountain. Your journey starts in Kathmandu, from where we will drive to Arughat Bazaar. Hit the trail from the bazaar and head for Soti Khola, followed by Maccha Khola and Jagat.

Continue your ascent to reach the Larkya La Pass, one of the longest passes in the Nepali Himalaya. Cross the pass and head for Bimtang. Enjoy beautiful views of the Marsyangdi River valley as you continue your journey to Syange. Travel through the mostly Brahmin settlement of Bahundanda and end your hike in Bhulbule, from where we will drive back to Kathmandu.

The Manaslu region was officially opened for foreigners in 1991, one of the reasons it does not receive much footfall. Although the highest pass in this route, the Larkya La (5,100m), is not difficult to cross, the trek around Manaslu is tougher than most other treks since, at many places, the walls of the Budhi Gandaki Valley stand perpendicular. Moreover, the trail is rough, steep and treacherous at places, hanging on a bluff high above the river.

We do not recommend this trek to those who display even the slightest symptoms of acrophobia. Please scroll down to the itinerary section for more details.

Exciting trekking to Manaslu
“I just finished a customized extended 19 day trek around Manaslu. My local guide Tsiring used his extraordinary familiarity with the area to include two overnight home-stays and five days of hiking on unique trails away from the standard route around the mountain.”

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.

  • 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.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • 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.
