Manaslu Circuit Trek

Manaslu Circuit Trek is undeniably a remarkable journey in western Nepal. The diverse culture, stunning views of Manaslu and Ganesh Himal Range makes this trekking a wonderful experience.

Itinerary of Manaslu Circuit Trek

We will start our trek from Barpak. This allows you to explore these Gurung villages and the good news is that you can avoid the long bumpy bus rides to Arughat. 

We cross the Buri Gandaki, pass through a colossal and spectacular valley with the dazzling views of Manaslu (8156m), to the contrasting village of Sama Gaon and cross the famed Larkya La before we descend via the Marsyandi to Annapurna region.

Manaslu Circuit trek offers an exclusive opportunity to experience a reasonably “untouched “region of Nepal. The regions & villages through which we trek are predominantly Buddhist.

This trek is wild and remote, but you will find the lodges during the entire trek. If you are in a big group, camping trek is a good alternative.

You do have an option to do a great tour by including Tsum valley in this same program.

The Larkya La Pass is a bit technical than Thorong La Pass, where you will need to be very attentive in some parts while crossing the pass. It is much better to carry the portable elastic crampons during the descent from the pass.

Highlights of Round Manaslu Trek

– Trekking around the eighth world’s highest mountain

– Discover the Nepalese, Tibetan and Nupri Culture

– An alternative to avoid the crowds of Annapurna & Everest Region

Side Trip to Manaslu Base Camp or Pungyen Gompa

– Crossing the beautiful Larkya La (5100m)
