The trails are rocky, rugged but not too steep. The highest point is Larkya La pass (5106m) which is one of the longest passes in the Himalaya of Nepal. The roads are not that tough but a strong mentality and commitment is required in order to complete the trek. Ensuring the proper acclimatization days and slow walking the trails helps to avoid altitude sickness. From the top of Larkya La offers stunning panoramic views of Manaslu, Himalchuli and many others. The hike on terrains requires normal attention and caution.

The hills are mainly composed of Gurung and Magar communities who have a legacy of serving in the British Gorkha army. The high mountains are inhabited by the Tibetan Buddhist community. Along the mountains there are many scattered centuries old monasteries and their arts. Their rich art which includes monasteries, stupas, chorten, maniwalls and prayer wheels which are standing still, which reflect their faith in Buddhism. The culture and tradition has been passed through generation and generation for centuries.

We are pretty sure you will be fascinated by Day 1. So what are you waiting for book a flight, strap your hiking boots because we are going out in wilderness which is very attractive. The best season for this trek is usually March to May and October to early December. Following through astonishing views of mountain, accompanied by out well experienced Guides and responsible porters you will definitely be able to complete this trek. However, it is long and mentally challenging sometimes. The trails are uphill but some places have high descending rate so it is recommended to carry some personal knee support.

Lastly it is not recommended to trek during monsoon season.

Accommodation

The teahouses/guesthouses are clean and comfortable. The accommodation in the mountains are not modern luxury but it’s comfortable. Only few accommodation have attached baths so many days you have to share the bathroom with other fellow trekkers.

However, we put our maximum effort and years of contact with people in that region to ensure you will get the best when travelling with us. The accommodation available in mountains are basic so having high expectation can hurt your feeling.

Foods

They do have menu offering variety of cuisine from Continental, Asian and others but the taste and quality may differ. Dal Bhat tends to be the good food packed with all nutrients like carb, protein minerals etc. Dal Bhat is usually a rice and lentils with greens and meat. However, we assure you we provide you with alpine dishes that meet the needs of human body and provides nutrients and energy in order to reach the destination safely.

The trek usually consist of week-long mountain sunshine and similar foods. You have to walk many hours for numerous days. However, general cardio or practice of some physical activity like running, swimming is recommended before the trek. 

Some days you just want to get back to home and you might feel that you want to return back but if you control those emotion then you will definitely love trekking experience.

What is the Visa procedure and Visa cost? Should we apply for the visa from our home country or will get it in Nepalese Airport? What essential documents should I bring with me?

We experiences major four season in Nepal throughout the year. They are summer (JUNE – AUGUST), Winter (DECEMBER – FEBRUARY), spring (MARCH TO MAY), and autumn (SEPTEMBER – November). Choosing a best season for your holiday offers you more glimpse and pleasure. The best season for Manaslu circuit trekking is during spring (March – April) and autumn (September - November). Spring offers the blooming Rhododendron as the trail is more attractive where all the trails turns into red pink and white flowers. However in autumn the skies are clear and snowcapped mountain views are amazing.

Yes, a part from Gumpa Lungdang and Dharmasala you will have electricity all the places where you can charge your batteries. You will be charge more or less 2 to 3 Dollar to full your batteries.

Normally you have to walk 6/7 hrs (more or Less 15 KM) per day. When you cross over 3000 meter altitude the trail will shorter (more or less 10/12 Km ) per day.

While trekking above 3000 meter altitude, some people might suffer from altitude sickness. Normally altitude sickness occurs when your body do not adjust in high elevation where the oxygen level is very low. Symptoms of altitude sickness includes headache, vomiting, loss of sleep etc. If you get such Symptoms then you have immediately consult with your guide. Guides are well trained and experiences for altitude trekking and sickness problems.
Drink lots of waters as you can, eat your foods full each time, do not drink alcoholic beverages, can avoid the chances of sickness in Himalayas. Even though, if you feel such sickness you can use medicine like Diamox which can avoid sickness and help to go high elevation. The nest important things is when you are going up don’t skip acclimatization because slowly and proper acclimatization adjust your body in high altitude.

A rest day for going high altitude where we do day hike to adopt the altitude in Himalaya. This is good practices to reach the final destination and explore more side trip details.


Manaslu Trekking is suitable for all kind of people who are moderately fit, not any previous adventure experience is required. Some physical fitness activities such as running, swimming and walking are recommended before your Manaslu trek. Persons suffering from a pre-existing medical flaws must seek medical advice before considering the trek.

We need transportation for Kathmandu to Machha Khola and Dharapani to Kathmandu. We have two choice either public bus or private jeep. If you’re going to by local bus then you have to prepare to fit in a small seat with sharing space to other people. Bus to Arughat leave early morning around 7:AM and 8 Am in the morning, so you have to plan to reach bus station at least before 30 minutes. The first half of 90 Km is black- top road so it is comfortable but after this would be challenging ride, with dust, muddy and very narrow road. I suggest keep mask, sunglass and scarf and a bottle of water with you.

By jeep:- Private jeeps might a option for those who want to go Arughat comfortably. Also jeep riding is faster than bus to reach the destination and jeeps allows you to stop anywhere for lunch, snacks, viewpoints along the way.

Since 2010 teahouse are available in Manaslu trekking. They provides simple rooms with 2 beds and common bathrooms for the trekkers. So you should not carry your tent and mattress.
