Major Highlights of Manaslu Circuit Trek

  • Manaslu Circuit Trek is well-known peers of Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit but far less crowded than them.
  • Manaslu is getting out popularity, but we still see fewer trekkers on the trail
  • The trek is wild and remote, yet there are tea houses at the everyday stage, so trekkers don’t need to bring tents and food, making it more accessible and affordable than similar treks.
  • Easily avoids domestic flights to reach the trailhead.
  • Opportunity to visit exemplary cantilever bridge.
  • You will trek from the subtropical jungle at lower elevations, through the Himalayan foothills to the high experiencing the scenery in a single trip all Nepal has to offer.
  • Ultimately, the cold and challenging crossing of the Larke-La above 5,100 meters / 17,000 feet.

A diversified ethnic community is living in the region which makes it an attractive region for visitors. The region was not in connection with another world before 1991 before the Nepal government officially started issuing permits for foreign nationals.

Manaslu Circuit Hiking tour is among the best treks in Nepal. Although it is gaining more popularity and more people are interested to visit it, the Manaslu Trek is still considered off-the-beaten-path and remote compared to other famous tea-house treks in Nepal. The trek takes you around Mt. Manaslu which is the eighth highest mountain at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft) in the world.

Alike other trekking destinations, you can do the trek from two different routes. The first route passes via Dudh Pokhari pass and another through the usual route by crossing the  Larke-La.
