Manaslu Circuit Trek

Duration: 18 Days   |   Based on 3 Reviews Trip MapPhotosDownload

Manaslu Circuit trek also popularly known as Manaslu Base Camp trek is a tea-house trek, yet, still being remote, this area is a comparatively less trekked region in Nepal. Unfortunately, the Manaslu region does not involve flights and the roadways haven’t reached the trekking trails yet. Manaslu 8160 m, stands isolated without crowds of people surrounding it. Comparable in many respects with the Annapurna trekking, the Manaslu Circuit trek takes place in the lower traffic Valley. With the recently built lodges on the trails that lead to Manaslu, this trek has slowly become famous, familiar and popular among adventurers. As you get towards a natural setting of an amphitheater, the Gompa monastery of Sama which is at the foot of Manaslu marks the entry into Buddhist territory. Larkya La passes 5135 m, the highlight of the route has a gentle ascent, before diving sharply deep to reach the lower valleys. Beautiful panoramas of mountain peaks and vistas, villages inhabited by a variety of ethnic groups are a few of the highlights of the Manaslu Circuit trekking tour.

Manaslu is the 8th highest mountain in the world, it lies proud and high close to the border with Tibet, some 120 km northwest of Kathmandu. Only after a few years into the nineties, the valleys to the north and east of Manaslu were open for foreigners to visit. The Manaslu circuit trek sees relatively few trekkers compared to the established trekking routes, however, the whole circuit of Manaslu over the Larke La pass is getting more and more popular as a new trekking destination in Nepal. The Manaslu Circuit trek commences either in the town of Arughat Bazaar or Gorkha Bazaar and ends in Besisahar, which also happens to be the starting point for the Annapurna circuit.

Manaslu Circuit hiking holidays is an amazing trek bestowing you with breathtaking views of the Manaslu, as you walk through authentic Hindu and Tibetan – style villages inhabited by indigenous villagers. We start at a rather low elevation, trekking through green countryside, and passing by villages inhabited by Hindus. Heading northwards, the valley opens up to reveal delightful alpine meadows and small Tibetan-style villages, which cluster aesthetically beneath Manaslu’s sweeping north face. Eventually, the trail takes us to Samagaon, the largest and most important village in the region. From this point on, the trail heads towards the west and crosses the Larke la pass 5160m, a classic and tough route linking the Buri Gandaki with the Marsayangdi valley. A number of descents pass through beautiful alpine meadows at Bimtang, before joining the main Annapurna circuit route and heading to the trail's end at Besisahar.

We have carefully put together a tailor-made itinerary below, which is one of the many possibilities. Upon your request, the trek can be longer or shorter, depending on the length of your trekking days. We can organize Manaslu Circuit trekking vacation package by either camping or doing it as a tea-house trek. Hence, feel free to choose whether you want to camp or stay at the local tea-house/ guesthouses.

The trail also passes through forests and mani where we turn towards a corner that contours to Ghap. Even though there is another route, we take the route through Prok village which has a viewpoint for stunning views of Sirngi Himal. We further cross the Buri Gandaki several times today and come across several gompas en route. The trail follows the river upstream through a dense forest. After crossing the river at an impressive spot where it thunders down a narrow gorge, the forest becomes less dense and the trail is fine again.

We spend the day at Samagaon both for rest and acclimatization. Today we get acquainted with the rich Sherpa culture. We enjoy the sight of thousands of Mani stones with Buddhist texts on it and pictures and the Sherpa women clad in traditional clothes and ornaments. On a little hill near the Sama village is an old Gompa (Pungyen Gompa), a monastery with great views of the glacier. It is named after Manaslu, Pungyen means bracelet, a good description of the two peaks. It was destroyed a year after the first unsuccessful Japanese attempt to Climb Manaslu. The locals believed that the climb angered the gods, and when the Japanese came back a year later they met with a lot of resistance that they had to give up their attempt. They were finally successful is 1959. Overnight at guest house in Samagaon.

Today we descend to the Buri Gandaki River, that has turned north and follow it to a bridge over a side stream. The trail to the left leads to the Manaslu base camp. The Larkya La trail passes several mani walls as the valley begins to widen. It is an easy trail on a shelf above the river passing the juniper and birch forests of Kermo Kharka. We drop off the shelf, cross the Buri Gandaki on a wooden bridge and climb steeply onto a promontory between two forks of the river. From a stone arch we can view a large white kani. Finally passing through the kani we find Samdo. Overnight at guest house in Samdo.  

  • Accommodation:guest house
  • Meals:BLD
  • Place:Samdo
  • Maximum Altitude:3,860m

This is another day set aside for proper acclimatization. Today, we have two options, the first option that we highly recommend is a hike up the valley directly at the back of the Samdo village. This hike will take us to one of the trade passes to Tibet for excellent views of Mt. Manaslu along with other Himalayan ranges including Simrang, Hiunchuli, Ngadi, Larkya peak, Cheo and possibly Kang Guru behind the pass. En route to these viewpoints we pass many seasonal herding settlements called doksas and sight some beautiful mountain birds like the Lophophorus (the national bird of Nepal), Lammergeyer and Himalayan Griffin soaring high above us. The second option for today could be a trip to the Gya la (large pass) to the north of Samdo, a more frequently used trading route to Tibet. But, this is a rather longer hike (whole day) and hence could be a little tiring. Overnight at guest house in Samdo.   

  • Accommodation:guest house
  • Meals:BLD
  • Place:Samdo

Even today, we continue our walk down the edge and cross the wooden bridge over Buri Gandaki and begin walking upward. Upon crossing two streams and witnessing the Larkya glacier we go around the valley of the Salka Khola and climb up again to the stone guest house (4450m), which is not a lodge but a kind of shelter called Dharmashala, also known as Larke Phedi. The short walk today also leaves plenty of time for acclimatization and relaxing in the afternoon. Overnight in Dharmashala.

  • Accommodation:Dharmashala
  • Meals:BLD
  • Place:Dharamasala – Larkya Base camp
  • Maximum Altitude:4,450m

Today is a heavy day, after a short climb we reach a valley on the north side of the Larkya glaciers from where we can enjoy great views of Cho Danda and Larkya peak. Finally, we walk across moraines of the glacier making a gradual ascent which become steeper only in the last section of the pass. From the pass, there are outstanding views of Himlung Himal, Cheo himal, Kangguru and the huge Annapurna II. It is a longer day than usual to Bimthang, but to walk into these low pastures which the evening mist coming in with Mt. Manaslu looming close by is an overwhelming experience. Overnight at guest house in Bimthang. 

  • Accommodation:guest house
  • Meals:BLD
  • Place:Larkya la – Bimthang
  • Maximum Altitude:5,160m.,3,720m

From a ridge at Bimthang, we can enjoy great views of Mt. Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, Himlung Himal and Cheo Himal. We descend further and cross a high pasture (Sangure Kharka) followed by a bridge over Dudh Khola. We walk through rhododendron forest and follow a trail through a narrow valley until we reach the highest cultivated land of the valley at Karche, 2780m. We pass across fields before making a steep climb over a ridge. The trail comes off the ridge in a big sweeping arc to the rover bank at 2600m. A short distance beyond is the village of Gho. Due to yesterday’s tiredness we might take an overnight rest at Gho but better lodges are available at Tilije, So Alpine Eco Trek recommends we stay at Tilije.

At the village, we go through a police checkpoint and continue to Dharapani. We have entered the Annapurna circuit section from Dharapani. Further down, we come across Karte village and after quite a bit of walking we cross a bridge over Marshyangdi River. We also come across some Mani walls before reaching the village of Tal, situated at the foot of a large waterfall. Overnight at guest house in Tal.

    Useful Information

    The Manaslu region has a variety of trekking options. One of them is the Manaslu circuit trek which begins at the Arughat Bazaar and ends two to three weeks later in Besisahar, which also happens to be the starting point of the Around Annapurna trekking (also known as Annapurna Circuit trek). Until recently the trek in this region required camping, but recently built tea-houses allow trekkers to spend the night at these tea houses. The trek requires a special permit which must be issued by a trekking company like us.

    What is the best season for the Manaslu Circuit Trek?

    Standing tall as the eighth highest mountain in the world Mt. Manaslu is becoming more and more popular amongst trekkers in Nepal. Alpine Eco Trek organizes an amazing Manaslu Circuit trek in Nepal highlighting this incredible Himalayan Mountain. For those who are wondering what the best season for the Manaslu Circuit trek is. Spring and autumn are it for clear skies and views. The trails are most accessible and the mountain pass of Larke La is open. 

    Do you want to do the Manaslu Circuit trek during autumn or fall?

    One of the peak seasons for trekking in Nepal will be autumn. Starting from somewhere mid-September and ending late December the autumn season is perfect for the Manalsu Circuit trek. Although a bit colder than the spring season, the days are still warm and excellent for trekking. Heading on higher towards the Larke La mountain pass it gets colder so keep that in mind while trekking the Manaslu Circuit trek. Do you want more info about the autumn trekking season in Nepal? Don’t hesitate and contact our Alpine Eco travel team at [email protected].

    Do you want to do the Manaslu Circuit trek during the spring season?

    A perfect time to explore around the Manaslu region will be in spring. The months' March, April, and May give perfect views of the Himalayas and the entire region is lush green and full of life! During this incredible Manaslu Circuit trek, we visit also the local villages, and spring season is ideal as the farmlands are filled with wheat and give that real out of city feel. 

    How difficult is the Manaslu Circuit Trek in Nepal?

    With the highest point of the trek being Larke La at 5,160 meters, the Manaslu Circuit trek is categorized as moderate to difficult. While not advisable to do as your first trek, if you want to do the Manaslu Circuit trek, serious altitude training is strongly advised. With daily elevation gains of over 500 meters, AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness is the most difficult part of this amazing trek in Nepal. With rocky slopes and strenuous climbs, our Alpine Eco trekking team also advises doing some endurance training one month before undergoing the Manalsu Circuit trek. This way you get to enjoy the best of the trek and experience the Himalayas around Mt. Manaslu. Do you need more info about the Manaslu Circuit trek difficulty, then don’t hesitate and contact our Alpine Eco travel team at [email protected].

    What type of fitness do I require to do the Manaslu Circuit Trek?

    Alpine Eco Trek strongly advises having built-up stamina to fully enjoy the Manaslu Circuit trek in Nepal. Being a more difficult trek than the famous Everest Base Camp trek, we do recommend to practice some kind of altitude training. As a novice trekker, it is possible to do the Manaslu Circuit trek but be sure to increase your fitness and be in good shape.

    What is our accommodation during the Manaslu Circuit Trek?

    In Kathmandu:

    Starting off in Kathmandu with an educational sightseeing tour, our accommodation will be more luxurious then during the trek. We stay at the standard hotel in Thamel, the tourism center point of Kathmandu. Amazing hotels, great service, and peaceful gardens. With nice rooms and comfortable beds Alpine Eco Trek books you on BB bases during your stay in Kathmandu. This way you get to enjoy the delicacies of the surrounding restaurants in the evenings and in the morning relaxing at the hotels' peace garden with a hearty breakfast. 

    During the Trek:

    As we head to a remote area we will be staying in local guest or teahouses, this provides sustainability to the area and helps to improve the development of the region. The Manaslu region is mostly populated with Tibetan style cultures and staying in the local villages increases that Himalayan experience. During the Manaslu Circuit trek, we leave the comfort of the cities behind and get ready for a Himalayan adventure. The guest houses are clean, simple and with a sharing bathroom. Alpine Eco Trek does recommend bringing a sleeping bag with you for extra hygiene. All meals are included in the Manaslu Circuit trek.

    What type of meals can I expect during the Manaslu Circuit Trek?

    During the Manaslu Circuit trek, all meals are included. With a standard breakfast in the morning, a packed lunch during the trek and a delicious dinner at the guesthouse in the evening. During the trek, we spent the nights and mornings in local guests or teahouses. Fresh food will be prepared and usually consists of a traditional Nepali dish. Rice, vegetables, lentil soup, and a spicy pickle sauce. Although it is also possible to order from the menu in the guesthouses, we do recommend not ordering any meat items during the trek as conservation facilities are not up to the norm in the remote areas. For gluten-free meals, you can always pack some items before leaving Kathmandu to be prepared during the trek.

    Do I require travel insurance for the Manalsu Circuit Trek?

    Whenever you undergo an adventure activity such as trekking in Nepal, travel insurance is an absolute must. As the trek is safe and good guided by our Alpine Eco Trek team accidents can happen. Being in remote areas without road access the only means of emergency evacuation will be by helicopter and without any type of travel insurance will become very expensive. Furthermore, during the Manaslu Circuit Trek, it happens that trekkers are grounded due to Acute Mountain Sickness and evacuation is required. Being still in development Nepal does not yet have travel insurance facilities for foreigners. That’s why we do advice to get your insurance before departing to Nepal and leaving a copy with your next of kin just to be safe. Make sure the insurance policy covers at least emergency helicopter rescue and any other activities involving trekking in high altitudes.

    Are there any safety measures while doing the Manaslu Circuit Trek?

    Safety is one of the main focus points during any trek organized by Alpine Eco Trek. Before departing to our trekking start point a detailed trekking briefing will be held in Kathmandu explaining all the safety rules during the trek. With over 20 years of experience in the field, our dedicated team takes great care of you and your safety during the Manaslu Circuit trek. Holding an acclimatization day before heading to the Larke La Pass and trekking on your pace with ample rest stops on the way is how we operate to prevent AMS. The trails during the Manaslu Circuit trek can get rocky and steep but with the help of our team and following our safety regulations we are sure to make this a memorable trek in Nepal for you.

    What is the normal group size during the Manaslu Circuit Trek?

    Up to 20 persons will be the normal group size during the Manalsu Circuit trek with Alpine Eco Trek. Having the policy; smaller groups, better service, we take great care in not overloading our trekking team. This gives room to provide an even better service to every individual trekker. With a minimum of 2 to a maximum 20 trekkers per group, our guides can easily handle everybody’s needs and give assistance without disturbing the entire group. This way everybody can fully enjoy this incredible Manaslu Circuit trek. With the option of trekking in a private group or choosing our group joining options, all our trekkers can get their own experience.  

    Private Trips or Group Joining

    Private groups’ means not being put with random strangers to fill up one trekking group. Instead, you get to trek with only your booking and experience the Manaslu Circuit trek with only familiar faces. You can fill up your own group from 2 to 20 persons with one guide and assistant guides depending on your group size.

With average daily trekking hours from 5 to 8 hours, most days will be filled with trekking from morning to late afternoon. To provide an even better service during this trek our Alpine Eco Trek team gives a daily wake-up call between 6 am and 7 am.
