Manaslu Trek

Are you on a quest for an incredible trekking experience? Do you want to trek a less travelled path but still with the luxury of tea-houses? Then the Manaslu trek is just right for you! Many tea-houses have been built along the route in the last few years making this the trek to go on before it becomes too popular and starts getting ‘touristy’. The Manaslu trek lies northwest of Kathmandu, only a 9-hour bus ride away. The trek circumnavigates the world’s 8th highest mountain Mt Manaslu at 8156 meters above sea level.

Soti Khola (710 m), which is 9 hours from Kathmandu by road is the starting point for the Manaslu trek and also its lowest point. The highest point is at the Larkya La Pass at an altitude of 5220 meters. The trek offers spectacular views of Mt. Himalchuli (7893 m), Mt. Ngadi Chu (7871 m) and Mt. Ganesh Himal (7422 m), not to mention Mount Manaslu. 

This is an absolutely amazing trekking route with untouched landscapes. Along the way you will pass through lots of local villages, waterfalls, beautiful pine forests, Buddhist monuments and monasteries. The entire Manaslu trek is filled with spectacular views. The trail itself keeps on changing from narrow trails hacked into cliffs, broad walking paths in the middle of pine forests, to dried-out river banks.

The trekking trail runs through the Manaslu Conservation Area was which established in 1998. It covers an area of 1663 square kilometers and harbors a mosaic of habitats for 33 species of mammals, 110 species of birds, 11 species of butterflies, and 3 species of reptiles. You will be taken through 6 different climatic zones: tropical, subtropical, temperate, sub-alpine, alpine and arctic. The extreme contrasts within this approximately 200 km trail are associated with tremendous differences in topography and precipitation. 

This is an adventurous trek of a lifetime where more than once you'll be taken aback by the stunning scenery. Here at Bookmundi we highly recommend the Manaslu Trek - and do believe that it indeed is one of Nepal's best treks.

Alternate Routes:

You can complete the standard Manaslu trek in 14 days. If you wish for more adventure, you can also add the Tsum Valley trek to your Manaslu itinerary. This will add another 6 days to your trip but is well worth it if you have the time. Tsum valley is a beautiful place with strong Tibetan culture. It was a restricted area that has only been open for trekking since 2008. In addition to the three permits, you will need a Tsum Valley Special Permit if you decide to do the Tsum Valley Trek.

This trek can be done in the in the counter-clockwise direction as well but it might take longer. The reason for this is that this direction has steeper ascents which results in slower climb. It may also be necessary to take an extra day of acclimatization in Bimthang before crossing over the Larkya La Pass.

Manaslu - Safety Considerations

All trekking agencies available at bookmundi.com take safety seriously and are assessed on their safety standards after every trek, via trekkers’ feedback. They will therefore go through safety procedures with you during your pre-trek meeting. However, please note the following particulars for the Manaslu trek:

  • The Manaslu Trek is a high altitude trek and therefore careful acclimatization is needed.
  • The day of crossing the Larke Pass is hard. Please start early, and carry plenty of water and food, and please wear warm clothes also.

In conclusion, if you love scenic treks and are prepared for some difficult ascent, then the Manaslu Trek is a great option for you. Bookmundi invites you to embark on this magical trek.

“An amazingly beautiful trek regardless of how far you get. We unfortunately had too much snow to reach the pass but nonetheless really enjoyed each stop along the way. The people are so friendly and accomodating and it's awesome seeing the change in culture as you get closer to the Tibetan border.

Highly recommend if you're looking for something a little different.”

“This was to be my third trip to the Himalayas, the last being the Annapurna Circuit in 2006 (before road building started on the circuit).  I was looking for something different this time, a remote camping based trek off the beaten track and away from the relatively crowded paths and overstretched teahouses of Annapurna and Everest Base Camp.  Manalsu more than met my expectations.”

“A great introduction to trekking in Nepal without the crowds on the Annapurna circuit. The Manaslu Circuit is certainly the path less well traveled - and by all accounts almost as dramatic as the Annapurna circuit, but as the circuit only opened up to trekkers a few years ago - there are virtually no lodges, so you get to enjoy camping every night!”
Great and well organized trekking Reviewed Tour: Manaslu Circuit Trekking

“We did the Manaslu circuit trek in December last year. Because of the low-season many lodges were closed. The few other tourists we encountered turned around before the Larkya pass because their porters didnt know that the last lodge to sleep in before the pass was closed. Because our guides knew that beforehand, we could cross the pass in a tough, long but great day. One of the things that prove that our guides knew what they were doing.
Our guides were really friendly and besides guiding they also played cards and talked with us after a day of hard trekking, something we really appreciated.
The personal service and nice people at the office in Kathmandu complemented this trip to a great experience.
Even though it was low season, the temperature in the lower regions was around 20 degrees celsius, so please bring some clothes for those temperatures too.”

“Nepal Eco Adventure is a great company to use for booking treks in Nepal. I visited Nepal in October and did the Manaslu Circuit Trek. I felt taken care of from the moment I came to Nepal until I left.

I had a rough beginning as my arrival was delayed by 6 hours and my luggage did not come until the next day. My trekking guide, Narayan, waited for me those 6 hours at the airport until 2 am when i arrived. The next day, Chattra helped me call the airport to figure out when my luggage would arrive and then Narayan accompanied to the airport to pick it up. They went out of their way to help me out.

The trek itself was great! Narayan was a great guide and very helpful throughout. He is very knowledgable about all Nepal things and trekking related stuff. We were also checked in on every night with the pulse oximeter when we started getting in higher elevations to make sure we were fine with altitude sickness. The trek ended a couple days early as we hiked ahead of schedule. My group expressed interested in going to Polkhara and Narayan arranged everything for us between accomodations and transportation. The whole trip to Nepal from trekking to getting around was made easy and comfortable thanks to Nepal Eco Adventure. Would highly recommend to anyone considering a guided trek!”

“It was not as good as it could have been primarily due to issues listed below. The scenery is beautiful, especially during the first half of the trek. Misrepresentation of the trek management and the guide's illness both contributed to our less than positive review. Example - One reason the company was selected was because the itinerary description states Public Jeep or Private Jeep. We wanted to avoid the pubic bus on mountain roads, but were required to take one on a miserable 1.5 hour ride on day 1 with 60 people on a bus that can hold 30. The road was a narrow path along a steep drop-off and the bus tilted at 30-40 degrees over bumps. We drove through water falls that threatened to wash the bus off the edge. Thrilling, yes, but not what we paid for. The return public jeep was along just as treacherous roads, but the jeep was much more stable. Highly recommend that the website be updated to accurately reflect the trip, including the fact that the best available room will not always be provided.”
