About Manaslu Circuit trek

In Nepal’s Himalayas, there is a well-known trekking path called the Manaslu Circuit. It bears the name Mount Manaslu, the eighth-highest mountain in the world at 8,163 meters (26,781 feet) above sea level. The circuit provides wonderful views of the magnificent Manaslu mountain and other nearby gorgeous peaks.

  • Location: In western Nepal, in the Gorkha District, is where you’ll find the Manaslu Circuit. It is less congested than the well-known Annapurna Circuit and is located northeast of the Annapurna area.
  • Trip Duration: The Manaslu Circuit trip typically takes 14 to 16 days to complete. This time frame can change based on the trekker’s degree of fitness, required acclimatization, and side trips made along the way.
  • Two permissions are required to trek in the Manaslu area: the Manaslu Restricted Area Permit and the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP). These licenses are required to control the number of hikers and protect the environment.
  • The Manaslu Circuit is regarded as a moderately challenging hike. It entails navigating high mountain passes, difficult terrain, and incline and decline. It is advised that you have some prior trekking experience and are in decent physical shape.
  • Highlights and Attractions

    Stunning Mountain vistas: The climb gives breathtaking vistas of Mount Manaslu as well as other peaks like Himalchuli (7,893m) and Ganesh Himal (7,422m).
    Rich Cultural Experience: The Manaslu region is home to a number of ethnic cultures, including the native Gurung and Tibetan residents. During the walk, you can discover their distinctive culture, traditions, and kind hospitality.

    Remote and Less Crowded: The Manaslu Circuit offers a more tranquil and off-the-beaten-path experience because it is less popular than the popular Annapurna and Everest districts.

The trek’s high point is Larkya La Pass, which is situated at a height of 5,160 meters (16,930 ft). A sense of accomplishment and            beautiful panoramic vistas are provided by crossing this pass.
Landscape Variety: The trail travels through a range of environments, including as rocky terrain, glacier moraines, terraced                    fields,  alpine meadows, and lush green forests.
