HIGHLIGHTS
  • Enjoy trekking through the Manaslu Circuit
  • Discover one of the least visited trekking routes in Nepal
  • See Mount Manaslu and other peaks in the Himalayas
Unlike Everest Base Camp trek, which has been popular ever since the mountain was first summited, Manaslu Circuit receives far fewer footfall primarily because the region was officially opened to tourists only in 1991. The area around the mountain is therefore better preserved and offers an ideal trekking destination to those who have 17 days to spare.

Although your journey starts from Kathmandu, your hiking begins only on reaching Arughat, a six-hour drive from Kathmandu. The highest point of this trek is the Larke Pass, located at an elevation of 5,100 meters. This is also the toughest section of the trek. The fact that this trek has such a variation in terms of elevation also means that you will be passing through lots of different landscapes.

Manaslu trek will provide you with great mountain views, many cultural inputs, unrivalled beauty and a rich bio diversity. Mount Manaslu (8,156m) is the eighth highest peak in the world and located near the Tibet-Nepal border.

Although challenging, Manaslu trek is worthwile for those that can hike for up to six hours a day, are determined and in a reasonably good shape. If in doubt, we recommend booking a porter to carry your belongings. That will relieve you of the weight of your backpack, which normally amounts between 13 to 15 kilograms.

This Manaslu trek takes you through a restricted trekking area and can only be done by two or more people.
