Tour Details

Manaslu Circuit Trek is regarded as the best all-around trek in Nepal and it’s on the Great Himalaya Trail. It’s another name is green tea- house trek. While on the trip to Manaslu we get to marvel at the magnificent views of snowy Mt. Manaslu (8163m), the eight tallest peaks in the world which is in the very center of the Nepalese Himalaya ranges. The low-to-high range of altitudes presents you a varied flora and fauna of this regions.

Wide cultural spectrum which includes strong influences from Tibet mixing up with typical and diverse Nepalese culture, tradition and ethnicity. The hospitality and the respect of the local communities make the trip so memorable and pleasing. The highest point in this trek is ‘Larkya La Pass’ which is one of the most dramatic and serious passes crossing the Himalayas ranges.

The trekker needs to note that the trekking at altitudes above 3000m/10,000ft is more demanding on the body than walking at lower elevations. One needs to have good cardiovascular fitness to go on this trek. We will start our trek with the drive to Arughat from Kathmandu and follow the Budhi Gandaki River northwards to reach the village of Deng.

The trail now takes you high above the river giving us views of the Manaslu Massif. However, much of this trek involves walking on mountain trails. The Annapurna’s Thorung La (Pass) is not the same degree of challenge as Manaslu’s Larkya La. It is in the almost permanent shadow of Manaslu’s north face and that results in more severe snow conditions. There are a few places where unbelievably beautiful and awesome scenery can be sightseeing.

Additionally, the best months for Manaslu Circuit Trek are March to May in spring season and September to mid-December during the autumn season. It is not suggested to go trek in monsoon season.
