highlights
  • Trek the Manaslu trek, one of the best treks in Nepal.
  • High altitude variation - giving different landscapes
The trek around Manaslu was officially opened to tourists in 1991. This region of Nepal sees few trekkers, which makes a visit here more exclusive and well-preserved. This trekking region has well preserved nature, great trekking trails and is thus an ideal trekking destination in Nepal if you have 17 days available.

The trek will be started from Arughat, a 6 hours drive from Kathmandu. Arughat lies at an altitude of 700 meters. The highest and hardest day of the trek is the day of crossing the Larke pass at 5100 meters. The fact that the trek has such a high variation in altitude also means that you will be passing through lots of varying landscapes.

The Manaslu trek will provide you with great mountain views, many cultural inputs, unrivalled beauty and rich bio diversity. Mt Manaslu at 8,156m is the highest mountain in the area and the eight highest peak in the world. It is located near the border of Nepal and Tibet.

The Manaslu trek is challenging but if you are able to walk up to 6 hours a day, are determined and in reasonably good shape, you can do this trek. If in doubt, we recommend to a porter while booking. That will relieve you of the weight of your backpack which normally amounts to 13-15 kgs.

Manaslu circuit trekking
liesbeth From Belgium At
5 - Excellent
“Beautiful trekking! Amazing mountain scenery! Not very busy, however I wouldn't call it remote/lonely anymore either. Start at low level (hot/humid) so possibility to walk full days and acclimatisation only becomes a problem later on, when you don't mind to stay a day in the same place. Very nice side trip to Manaslu basecamp possible on rest day, if you are fit enough make sure you don't miss it! Considerable damage from earthquake visible, especially in the first few towns where you will stay, however not a problem to complete the trekking.”
Amazing

“Although we set off during the beginning of May which is near the end of the trekking season, we still had amazing weather with no rain in the day. The tea houses were all very hospitable and the food (mainly Dal Bhat) was outstanding. Raj our guide was like a walking encyclopaedia as he was able to answer all our questions about the surroundings! His knowledge and humour never failed even when we were 5100m high. He always put”
Brilliant and funny guide
Dan Allchurch From UK At
5 - Excellent
“Recently finished trekking in Manaslu and Annapurna circuits and had a brilliant time with Nepalecoadventure. Every place we stayed (chosen by our guide) was very comfortable and food was great!
Our guide, Jiba Sherpa was absolutely brilliant and extremely funny. After the weather meant that completing the Manaslu circuit wasn't possible his quick thinking meant we got to Pokhara in enough time to complete the Poon Hill trek which was amazing.
Would definitely recommend this company to anyone thinking of trekking in Nepal!”
Amazing Experience, loved it.
William Eves From UK At

“Most incredible experience, Jiba Sherpa was our guide and he was insanely funny and helpful, but all the nepal eco adventure staff have been very welcoming and accommodating. Would thoroughly recommend a trek with these guys, did the Manaslu trek which was serenely beautiful and quiet which was its strength and also the lovely scenery along the Bisho Gandaki river.”
