Overview

Manaslu Circuit Trek is an off the beaten trekking trail in Nepal. Wild and remote trekking, Manaslu circuit trekking is trekking around Manaslu (8163m.) the eighth highest mountain in the world. A less crowded trekking route than other classic treks, the Manaslu circuit trek route is also the part of The Great Himalayan Trail.

During the trek, you can collect the mesmerizing views of Manaslu and Ganesh Himal ranges. The trail starts in the low altitude at Soti Khola (869m.) then constantly rises up to Larkya La Pass (5160m.) covering the wonderful landscapes, green countryside, lush forests, and the huge glaciers along the way. The locals here are a mix of the Hindu and Buddhist religions and the villages reflect of Hindu and Tibetan style. This trekking is a restricted area trekking so you need to have at least two travelers and a registered local trekking guide.

Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of the great adventure activities in Nepal. This is a combo package for all types of trekking adventure, scenic view, local lifestyle, and cultural heritage site. You can spot 3 mountain with hight above 800m from our way to reach Larke Pass at 5106m height. The majestic mountain view from 5000m hight will look like you conquered the mountain.

Manaslu Circuit Trek is long trekking of 14 days which requires a special permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association. This region is a restricted area and the natural beauty it offers is quite marvelous than that of others. 

As you move further to the conservation area and high altitude of Manaslu mountain you will be exploring Gurung & Magar village. The cultural heritage site of this area seems good to analyze and have a beautiful memory. Cultural dress, food, heritage site, festival add an extra flavor to the beauty of massive Manaslu Mountain.  Monasteries made by local Buddhists are even more beautiful. 

One of the main highlights of the Manaslu circuit trek is the Manaslu conservation area, where one can find different kinds of flora and fauna suitable for making medicine. Lots of flora and fauna from this area exported to another part of Nepal and the world for medical purposes. Lots of endangered animals are found inside the same Manaslu conservational area.

Best time for Trekking in Manaslu

As the climate and weather of all places never remain the same, so does this trekking region. Sometimes the temperature may fall up to -20 degrees Celcius, and it would be difficult for us to do the trek. So, it must have some good time to welcome tourists from around the world. We need to have warm weather as compared to those extreme and that is possible on the season of Autumn and Spring season.

In the month of March April and May, the climate is warmer than it is in the month of December and January. Also on the rainy season, it's not good to go there as landslide and other natural difficulties may occur. September, October, and November are the best time to go on Manaslu Circuit Trek. At this time, the temperature won't be too low or too high we can have ultimate fun and adventure during this season.
