Manaslu Circuit Trek (5,100m)

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.

Throughout our lives, people have thought that because we keep traveling

and searching for new things to do, we are not focused. They have often thought

we were flaky or unfocused. But travel helped us find our purpose and put focus into our lives. The more we got lost in our travels, the richer our lives become. So, when you think that the travelers in your life are flighty remember, “not all who wander are lost”.
