The Manaslu Circuit Trek is unlike any other in Nepal. Not only is the location of the Manaslu Circuit Trek trail through off-beaten paths in the Himalayas surrounded by the natural charm of Manaslu (8163 m), but it also roams through Buddhism heritage.
Prepare yourself for the Manaslu Circuit Trek, one of Nepal's most strenuous treks. Manaslu circuit trek elevation range of 930m to 5106m.
In just 15 days, the Manaslu circuit trek route takes through lush tropical woods to high alpine meadows. You will also visit Birendra Lake and wander across the breathtaking Larkya La pass, the most spectacular Nepal pass.
Manaslu Circuit Trek cost and itinerary are around USD 1100 to 1700 for 15 days of the trip.
The trip begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Machha Khola and a brief hike to Soti Khola. In the next few days, you will trek through Jagat, Deng, Namrung, Lo, and Samagaon.
At Samagaon, you will take a rest day but wander nearby to visit Manaslu Base Camp, Birendra Lake, and Pungyen Gompa. For the next few days, you will trek through Samdo, Dharamsala, and Bimthang via Larkya La Pass.
Then descending through Gho and Chamje, you will finally drive to Kathmandu on the 15th.
There are requirements for three kinds of the permit for the Manaslu Circuit Trek: the Restricted Area Permit (Manaslu RAP), the Manaslu Conservation Area Project (MCAP) Permit, and the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) Permit.
The latter two can be obtained through Nepal Tourism Board, the Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal Secretariat, and the entrance of Kathmandu and Pokhara. However, RAP requires special permission to be applied through a trekking agency.
Like many Nepal treks, the best times for the Manaslu circuit trek are March to May and September to November. However, spring and autumn are especially essential for this trek due to the high elevation and rugged terrain.
Manaslu circuit trek difficulty is challenging. The trail has some areas that are rocky and steep. The most difficult part of the hike is the Larkya La pass. It takes around ten hours to cross the ice and rugged terrain.
This walk portion also includes a remarkable height change of roughly 4,203 m/3,789 ft. Before a significant elevation difference, you should take a day to relax and acclimate. The weather is consistent during the busy season. The walk is a little bit easier because of this. You will also receive assistance from qualified guides or porters, as required.
