Manaslu Circuit Trek: A Mesmerizing Journey
As you embark on the Manaslu Circuit Trek, you'll traverse diverse landscapes, starting from the lush and steamy lowlands adorned with rice and millet terraces. The journey takes you alongside the majestic Budi Gandaki river with its mesmerizing turquoise waters and cascading waterfalls. The suspension bridges that span the route are awe-inspiring marvels, boasting both length and height. However, it's essential to remain cautious as the monsoon season may wash away minor bridges, requiring trekkers to navigate semi-submerged rocks.
An Exhilarating Experience
Initially opened to a limited number of 400 trekkers in 1992, the Manaslu Circuit Trek retains its sense of exploration and adventure even today. Every step on this trail feels like a pioneering expedition, reminiscent of trekking experiences from the 1980s. The trek promises a visual feast right from the beginning till the end, but it demands trekkers to be in excellent physical condition to fully savor its beauty.
Conquering the Larkya La Pass
As you progress northward, the journey leads you to the awe-inspiring Larkya La Pass, situated near the border of Tibet. At a staggering altitude of 5,167 meters/16,952 feet, the pass presents a formidable challenge. However, the breath-taking vistas of Manaslu that unfold before your eyes make the effort entirely worthwhile. The Larkya La Pass is often snow-covered and icy, necessitating the use of micro crampons during the descent. To avoid harsh winds that arrive around mid-morning, trekkers typically commence their ascent as early as 3 am.
Unveiling the Postcard-Worthy Panorama
While looking back from the Larkya La Pass, you are treated to a clear view of the route you have conquered so far. However, the most awe-inspiring view awaits after you depart from the pass and traverse a corridor towards the west. The vistas that unfold during this phase are unparalleled, leaving trekkers captivated by the natural splendor surrounding them.
The Manaslu Circuit Trek is undoubtedly one of the best treks in Nepal, offering an unforgettable journey through the heart of the Himalayas. This adventure, while challenging, rewards trekkers with stunning landscapes, cultural encounters, and the sheer joy of conquering nature's wonders. As you embark on this once-in-a-lifetime experience, ensure you are adequately prepared both physically and mentally, ready to immerse yourself in the magnificence of the Manaslu region.
Remember, this is not just a trek; it is a transformative odyssey that will leave an indelible mark on your soul, forever inspiring your love for nature and adventure.Show more...

It may be a western style toilet or a squat. Things tend to become more basic at higher altitudes.There's also a dining room where food is prepared, so it's a perfect spot to get to know your fellow trekkers. The higher you go, usually around dinner time there will be a fire in the dining room, although this is by no means guaranteed.
During the lodge trek, we will enjoy authentic Nepalese food (Dal bhat, vegetables, curry ...) rice, lentil, as well as more-foreign cuisine. You can select from the lodge menu if you want, and at a time when it's difficult to pick, our guide can help you choose and taste the local cuisine. Breakfast and dinner are served from the teahouse or from the lodge menu where we spend the night. Lunch and Dinner are not included in the price. If you want to include the lunch and dinner you would have to tick the box at the top right side of the booking menu.
Electricity and Charging your devices while on Manaslu Trek
Owing to the small hydropower project, 220 volts of electrical power is available in many villages. Light and power sockets are also available for charging batteries on a payable basis. Villages without electricity normally use a solar energy for charging lights and batteries.

Regarding the type of activity, you may be asked to show a certificate of insurance for help and support, sanitation and search. This service is private and not free in Nepal, the helicopter will not take off until it is convinced to pay for the insurance.
Carrying Extra money
It’s difficult to give an exact amount of money that you should bring. Costs will vary according to how much you want to spend for shopping and where and what meals (lunch & dinner) you want to eat. Trekkers find that around $20 (for lunch & dinner) a day is reasonable for the trekking days.
As for the tips, A general rule of thumb for tipping is USD 25 for the guide per traveller and USD 25 for porter between two travellers if you are fully satisfied with their service.

This is just a guideline and you may tip whatever / how much you think is appropriate for the services rendered which made your trek a memorable one.

Essential Info Expand all +
The optimal seasons for the Manaslu trek are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). However, HSJ is capable of arranging the trek safely and ensuring a memorable experience throughout the year.
The Manaslu trek is classified as a strenuous trekking experience due to its challenging ascents and descents, often involving steep stone stairs. Having good physical fitness and previous trekking experience can be beneficial, although no technical skills are required.
According to the regulations set by the Government of Nepal, it is mandatory to trek with a guide. The rule states that a minimum of two trekkers and a guide must be present for any trek in the Manaslu region.
You will have working network connectivity in most parts of the trails. However at the higher altitude, the network may become sluggish and unreliable. The stops at the tea houses will have working connection and most of them would have Wi-Fi connectivity too. You may have to pay some extra charge for Wi-Fi connection and electricity at the higher altitude.
Global passengers will be protected by insurance when treking in Nepal. Although Nepal is normally very secure, trekking at high altitudes is physically difficult and often risky. Altitude sickness is common during hiking tours in Nepal, particularly among foreign hikers who may not have taken the right time to acclimatize. Such rescue and related emergency procedures are costly and passengers are forced to pay for these services out of their pockets, unless they are covered by insurance plans.
Yes, Himalayan Social Journey is flexible travel partner. It is possible to organize the private trip or private group trip to Manaslu. The minimum people for the group is 2 however supplementary charge will be applicable for the solo traveler wanting to do private trip.
Supplementary charge will be applicable for the solo traveler wanting to do private trip. You will also have the option to share the room with another solo traveler depending on your and their consent and interest. Even if you pay supplementary charge for the single room, it is possible that during peak seasons you will end up sharing rooms due to lack of availability of the room.
Yes, children are allowed to do the trek, however it is safe to not bring children under the age of 12 to do the trek as they may find it difficult and not able to walk. This could affect your trekking experience as well.
No, there is no age limit to do the trek. If the person is healthy and physically fit, they can do the trek.
You will have teahouse or guest house accommodation while on the trek. Tea houses can be multi-story concrete buildings with private rooms in lower elevations. The higher you step up, the simpler the accommodation is. Accommodation will involve a single dorm space in the base camp. Guide will arrange for the adequate, clean and hygienic place for you to spend overnight and you will eat at the same place you will stay in. Most of the places shall have attached bathroom and hot shower however over the higher altitude, it is likely that you may have to pay extra sum for the same.
The Tap water supplied along the trails are considered safe for drinking and local people drink it without treating, however for the foreigners, it is best that the tap water be only drunk after purification. There are two good options for having proper drinking water during the trek. You can bring water purification tablets or fill your bottle for a nominal fee from the recognized and regulated "pure water" stations along the trek. As the last alternative, you can also purchase bottled water at the lodges but this is not recommended. It is very important that you drink at least 3 liters of pure water daily during the trek.
Certainly! For the Manaslu region, permits are essential. You will require a special restricted area permit for Manaslu and a Conservation Area Permit covering both Manaslu and Annapurna regions, as the trail passes through the Annapurna Region as well.
The optimal approach for this trek is a 13-day itinerary starting and ending in Kathmandu. While it is possible to complete it in 10 or 12 days, rushing through may lead to missing out on the full experience and could be more physically demanding.
