Manaslu Trek

Trek Overview

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.

      3. Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) Permit

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.

The following is a sample itinerary. It may vary slightly depending on the final trekking agency you choose to go with:

  • Day 01: Kathmandu to Soti Khola (710m)  8-9 hours   
  • Day 02: Soti Khola to Machha Khola (900m)  5 - 6 hours

“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.”

“From the start all my questions were answered quickly. On arrival in Kathmandu I was met at the airport and taken to my hotel. All the paperwork for permits etc was done for me. There was a bit of misunderstanding before we set off as I was trekking with some people who were with a different trekking agency but that was soon resolved and the actual trek itself was fantastic right from the moment we left the bus behind and set out on the trail. Our guide, Suman, was the best. He made all arrangements and was always looking out to make sure that everything was ok for us. He was also able to answer most of our questions about the places we went through, the culture, wildlife etc. Altogether this was a special trip for me and it passed all expectations.”

“The Manaslu Circuit Trek was extremely pleasing from a number of different point-of-views. Firstly, it still an original track predominantly used by locals and mules - only on the last day when we joined the Annapurna circuit were we faced with road traffic and dust. The scenery was breathtaking, the catering by the lodges excellent and the track suitably difficult with some easy patches. I am glad that I took so many photos so I can relive the experience.”

“My name is August and I am from Germany. I did Manaslu Trek with my wife on 2016 October with Himalayan Leisure. I did Annapurna Trek in the past and this time I wanted to go to less crowded trek and Manaslu was great option. We were not favored by weather for first few days but everything came to our side once we reached Samagaon. The weather started to become perfect and the views were incredible. I would recommend Manaslu Trek for everyone looking for less commercialized trekking in Nepal. Enjoy being in the Himalayas!”

“The Manaslu Trek is somewhat less famous than the Annapurna Circuit but it is very similar to it in terms of the actual circuit. The trail starts in Arughat and ends in Besisahar (which is the start of Annapurna) and takes about 14 days. Along the way you move past Manaslu - the eight highest mountain peak in the world - and cross the Larke Pass at approximately 5100m in altitude. The best feature of the Manaslu Trek is that only few people walk the trail so it is very nice and calm. The teahouses are very good and the trail is restored surprisingly well after the 2015 earthquake. We only encountered some landslides we had to cross. All in all a highly recommendable trail for those who seek a quiet and peaceful trail as alternative to Annapurna. The only thing is it comes with a somewhat higher price since the permit is somewhat more expensive and you have to have a guide with you along the way.”
