Manaslu Trekking in Nepal

General Overview

Trekking in Nepal along the Manaslu circuit will be extremely rewarding experience where you will indulge in the full splendor of the Manaslu regions natural beauty, offering you unsurpassed views of the Manaslu sanctuary. While you are on Manaslu trekking will have the opportunity to interact with a cirque of awe-inspiring peaks over 6500 meters, including the awesome Manaslu Himal and Ganesh Himal.  The journey starts unfolding with the majestic views of ancient oak and rhododendron forest, and terraced fields of rice and millet, water falls, and the world of snow and ice. The trekking trail starts from Aarughat, a small town of Gorkha district, and follows the ancient salt-trading route along the Budhi Gandaki River.

The region is dotted with austere monasteries, Mani walls, Chortens and other Buddhist religious landmarks. The valley is a sanctuary to many highly endangered animals, including snow Leopards and red Pandas.

Manaslu trekking route is characterized by a narrow winding track in the lower valley with many suspension bridges. You will find yourself sharing the trail with trains of donkeys carrying goods for the local villages and guest houses up the mountain. The trail has many steep, narrow sections and trekkers may find this quite challenging, make sure you are on the cliff side when a donkey passes you! Above 3000m the valleys widen and the trail opens up presenting magnificent views of the Manaslu Range and Conservation Area.

The trek can be done comfortably in 17 days but can be 13 days if required. The trek can also be done with/without porters.

It is advisable that those wanting to trek Manaslu have some trekking/hiking experience due to the steep sections, especially if trekkers are carrying their own packs. The circuit is more remote compared to Annapurna with the closest transport locations being Aarughat and Dharapani.
