The Manaslu Circuit Trek is a hidden gem in the Himalayas, offering an authentic experience away from the crowds. Unlike the more popular Everest and Annapurna treks, the Manaslu Circuit remains relatively secluded, providing a sense of adventure and closeness to nature within the hidden Nepalese valleys.

The hike revolves around Mount Manaslu, the eighth-highest mountain in the world, and offers a rich blend of natural beauty and cultural heritage. You’ll discover the world of Sherpas and their way of living from up close in the most authentic way possible.

Why Choose Manaslu Circuit Trek

If you’re looking for a less well-known adventure that combines awe-inspiring landscapes with cultural richness, the Manaslu Circuit Trek is your perfect match. This trek offers an unparalleled view of the Himalayan ranges, including Manaslu, Himlung, and Annapurna II. And let’s not forget about the jaw-dropping natural scenery of the lower lands, with lush forests, rivers, and waterfalls, as well as the turquoise waters of the Budi Gandaki River.

How to Prepare for Manaslu Circuit Trek

Preparing for the Manaslu Trek requires a multi-faceted approach. Being physically fit is key, especially when building your leg strength and endurance. While it’s also good to work on your upper body strength, flexibility, and heart health, don’t lose sight of the main goal: to be capable of hiking for long periods at high elevations, all while carrying a heavy backpack with relative ease.

Logistically, there are several permits you’ll need, including a restricted area permit. Our guided tour ensures these logistical challenges aren’t your concern, allowing you to focus on the trek and working on your fitness level.

Safety Measures

Safety is a paramount concern when trekking in remote areas. The Manaslu Circuit includes challenging terrains and high altitudes, especially at the Larkya La Pass, which reaches above 5000 meters of altitude. Acclimatization is crucial, and our itinerary includes built-in days for this purpose.

If not, you might start experiencing symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness anywhere from six to 24 hours after you’ve ascended past 2,400 meters. While these symptoms can vary, they often include headaches, fatigue, and dizziness. In more serious cases, you could even face life-threatening conditions such as fluid buildup in your lungs or brain.

We also provide information on what to do in emergencies and ensure you have all the necessary contact numbers. It’s advisable to have comprehensive travel insurance, and our team will provide you with the best options that cover trekking and emergency evacuation.

Accommodation & Food on Manaslu Circuit Trek

Accommodation on the Manaslu Circuit is generally in the form of teahouses, which offer basic but comfortable facilities. These teahouses also serve as dining areas where you can enjoy a variety of meals, from traditional Nepali food to more familiar international dishes. Our guided tour ensures that your accommodation is pre-booked, and we also cater to any dietary restrictions you may have.

Nepal Trekking Regulations

Recent changes in Nepal’s trekking regulations have made it mandatory for all trekkers to have a licensed guide. Starting from March 31, 2023, the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) announced that all trekkers must obtain a Trekking Information Management System (TIMS) Card through authorized trekking agencies registered with the Nepali government.
