Overview

Manaslu circuit trek cost and itinerary for 2022 and 2023

Manaslu Circuit trek in Nepal is a remote trail around the 8th highest mountain in the world at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft). We cross Larke pass 5,106m. Manaslu Circuit Trek 14 days itinerary is a scenic Restricted Area trek in Gorkha district in Nepal that takes you along the Budi Gandaki river, through the valley between Ganesh Himal and Annapurna Himalayas, and side of the Rui La pass Lajyun Bhanjyang which is the China borders. As you hike through the Manaslu area remote villages, fairy-tale forests, moorlands cut by the Budi Gandaki rivers, and the blue-tinged Himalayan peaks and the Larke La range, you will experience the sheer beauty of the Himalayan landscape.

The Manaslu circuit trekking route is situated within the Manaslu Conservation Area Project (MCAP) wilderness area of Nepal, where you can appreciate the natural beauty of the forests and the close-up views of the high mountains of Mt Manaslu Himal, Buddha Himal, Syringe Himal, Ganesh Himal at Tsum Valley side, and Himchuli.

Manaslu Larke pass trekking is a land of terrestrial biodiversity that is home to about 2,000 species of plants, 33 mammals, 110 species of birds, and 11 species of butterflies, as well as snow leopards, gray wolves, musk deer, blue sheep, and in large numbers Himalayan Thar.

Side trip from Sama village

We have designed an extensive itinerary covering many aspects of the Manaslu circuit trek over a period of 14 days. There will be a day hike from Sama village to the Manaslu Base Camp, the Birendra Mountain for a panoramic view, and the 4813-meter high base camp.

Trekking to Mt Manaslu Mountain is an exciting adventure that takes you to one of the eight highest mountains in the world, 8,163 meters above sea level. Four to six expedition groups summit this mountain in the climbing season, and it is one of the most challenging and difficult expedition mountains in Nepal.

Side trip from Samdo village

During the Manaslu Larke pass trek, you have the opportunity to experience a more exciting ultimate day tour to the Tibet border. If you have more time, you can hike to the pass called Lajyun Bhanjyang, which is 5098 meters high. Lajyun Bhanjyang is a five-hour drive from Samdo, and it takes three hours to get back from the Border. From the Lajyun Bhanjyang, one can enjoy the stunning view of the Tiber Plateau.

The Peoples and Culture of Manaslu Routes

The majority of people who live in the Manaslu Trekking regions work in the tea house business and in agriculture. Buddhism Bon Po is their religion. Buddhist monasteries and ancient Tibetan culture are the main attractions for tourists along the trek.

Manaslu region’s Farming crops

In Sama Gaun and Samdo villages, there are several major crops grown, including buckwheat, wheat, barley, millet, sunflower, sweet potato, pumpkin, and beans. Since every one of these crops is grown on their own land, they are dependent upon these foods to survive.

Manaslu circuit Larkya La Pass

The Larkya La pass is the highest point on the Manaslu circuit trek route. At 5,167 meters above sea level, it is the highest point on the trek. Due to heavy snowfall in December and January, it is closed during these months. For the rest of the month, it is easier to cross the pass; however, it is a more challenging trek than the Rupina La pass Trek. If you are trekking in colder weather, make sure you carry microspikes with you.

Physically

In order to do the Manaslu circuit Larkya La pass, trekkers need a lot of physical fitness exercises and hiking stamina as it is nearly impossible to pass without hiking stamina; we have seen several trekkers give up halfway around the Manaslu circuit during our previous experience. We recommend that trekkers run for at least 10 to 15 days, at least one hour per day before you plan the trek.

Manaslu circuit trek accommodations:

There is a clean tea house at every stop along the Manaslu Circuit trek. You will find private rooms, outside toilets, and a heater in the dining room. Nevertheless, you should not expect comfortable toilets during your trek up the Manaslu. The majority of teahouses do not have toilet paper and pan toilets, with only a few hotels having western toilets. You should make sure to bring your own toilet paper or buy some in the same grocery store if you do not have any.

Totals distance

It takes 14 days to complete the Manaslu circuit trek from Machha Khola to Besisahar, and 177 kilometers from Machha Khola to Besisahar. We began our journey towards Manaslu on the first day by driving to Machhakhola in a local bus.

Best time to do Manaslu Circuit Trek

Trekking the Manaslu Circuit is possible throughout the year. Each season offers a unique variety of activities. Spring and autumn are, however, the best times to trek Manaslu due to the moderate weather and stable climate that these seasons provide. Manaslu experiences four distinct seasons.
