Manaslu Circuit Trek is a challenging trek goes around the World’s eighth highest peak, Manaslu (8,163 m) and is officially granted permits to trekkers in the Manaslu region in 1991. While trekking to this remote Manaslu region, you will get an opportunity to experience the indigenous cultures and traditional lifestyle.

We begin our journey from Kathmandu to the trailhead in Arughat bazaar in a bus. From Arughat bazaar we travel on a local jeep same day and stay overnight at Seti Khola. The next day we begin our trek from lush sub-tropical terrain climbing along the banks of the Budhi Gandaki River. And reach the highest point the Larkya La pass at 5,235m. We walk through the middle hills and finally emerge into the high, arid desert region. Which is actually consider as a part of the Tibetan Plateau. Where people of Tibetan origin inhabit and follow the Tibetan Buddhism.

On the way, you will pass through small hamlets, get closer to Tibetan territory and find some Mani stone walls at the gateway to each village and occasionally Stupa. This trek is really challenging while crossing over the Larkya La Pass. Every trekker requires excellent physical stamina and passion to do Manaslu Circuit Trek.

Climate & Best Season

The temperature at the beginning of the trek is warm and humid. As you hike progressively to higher altitudes. The temperature drops and begins hiking in trees and then alpine grasses, and then snow and rock by the time you reach the Pass. You will find yourself absolutely in a beautiful scenery surrounded by mountains. Due to the remote region, the Manaslu region is assumed to be in total contrast to trekking in the Annapurna region. Rating ‘Round Manaslu Trek‘ the first option for those who prefer to immerse with nature and love adventure.

The best trekking seasons are between spring (March to May); autumn (September to November). From June to August is the monsoon season, when the heavy rainfall causes the region to remain drowned most of the time.

  1. Fabulous Manaslu Trek with Exciting Himalaya
    Aastha Sinha22nd April, 2019

    My friend and I went to Gorkha for sightseeing and wanted to do Manaslu trek. After going through couple of websites ,we came across Exciting Himalaya. I got in touch with them and they explained very nicely. We decide to book the trek with them and it was the best decision .The trek was for 16 days and Exciting Himalaya took care of everything, right from arranging transportation to guide and accommodating us in tea houses. The Guide Hari was a friendly man ,we enjoyed his company throughout the trek.The organizers ensured that our hiking experience was fabulous. We started at Arughat and walked every day for 8-9 hours . One of most interesting places were Dharamsala/Larkya Base Camp . The view was magnificent and the guide explained to us about the trek . The cost of the trek is $2000 which is one of the best prices. My friend and I would recommend Exciting Himalaya for trekking in Nepal.They are well organized and professional. I assure you will have a great time
