Manaslu Circuit Trek – 16 Days
5,160 m/16,929 ft
1. Trekking around Manaslu (8,163 m) - the eighth highest peak in the world.>
2. Panoramic and close by view of the mountains.
3. Trekking in a less crowded route.
4. Trekking along the wild and ferocious Budhi Gandaki river.
5. Enjoying the rich flora and fauna diversity of mid Nepali hills.
Manaslu (8,163 m) is the eight highest mountain in the world. It is also one of the most difficult to scale, thus getting the notorious nickname - Killer Mountain. It is one of the most beautiful Himalayan peaks. The trek around Manaslu provides a experience of a lifetime.
Manaslu is also one of the lesser traveled trekking routes. It attracts far less trekkers compared to Everest Trek and Annapurna Trek.
Trekking in the region was opened in 1992. Most part of the trek lies in conserved area and you will need to take permission from the government before starting your trek.
We will start our trek from Soti Khola in Gorkha district. We will drive to Soti Khola from Kathmandu. If it’s rainy then the way to Soti Khola will be inaccessible for vehicles. We will thus have to start our trek from Arughat, which will add one extra day to our itinerary.
Beautiful villages of the Gurung and Ghale people lies on our trekking route. Monasteries and prayer flags create a mystic atmosphere during your stay in the villages. The travel to Larkya Pass at 5,420 m is a thrilling experience. The all round view of the mountains is spectacular from Larkya Pass.
Route summary: Kathmandu - Soti Khola - Namrung - Dharmasala - Larkya La Pass - Chyamje - Besisahar - Kathmandu.
Best Season: September to December and February to May.

If you are not physically fit enough, then this trek should be very difficult for you. Otherwise, it isn’t as difficult as it seems. With plenty of days for acclimatization and short walks you should be able to cope up with the demanding altitude. You also need to be physically fit enough to enjoy this trek because the route has several steep descents and ascents.
It’s been a great experience trekking the Manaslu Circuit . Our guide was more than helpful, we enjoyed his company tremendously. He kept us safe, answered all our questions and was like a friend to us. Everything was taken care of for us and we could focus on admiring the beutiful views Manaslu has to offer.
When in Nepal, I highly recommend using Ambition himalaya. I’ll be sure to do it again.
