Tour Details

This is a challenging trek that goes around the World’s eighth-highest peak, Manaslu (8,163 m) and is officially granted permits to trekkers in the Manaslu region in 1991. Trekking to this remote and isolated Manaslu region, you will get an opportunity to explore the indigenous cultures and traditional lifestyle of the highlanders.
We begin our journey from Kathmandu to the trailhead – SotiKhola via. Arughat bazaar by land transport. We stay overnight at SotiKhola. The next morning, we begin our trek from lush sub-tropical terrain climbing along the banks of the BudhiGandaki River and reaching the highest point of the Larkya La pass at 5,235 m. We slowly walk through the middle hills and finally reach the high, arid desert region which is actually considered a part of the Tibetan Plateau where people of Tibetan origin inhabit and follow Tibetan Buddhism. En route you will traverse through small villages, get closer to Tibetan territory and encounter some Mani stone walls at the gateway of each village and occasionally Stupa. This trek is truly strenuous at the time of crossing over the Larkya La Pass. Every trekker requires excellent physical stamina and passion to complete Manaslu Circuit Trek.
The temperature at the beginning of the trek is warm and humid. As you hike progressively to higher altitudes, the temperature drops, and begins hiking in trees and then alpine grasses, and then snow and rock by the time you reach the Pass. You will find yourself absolutely in the beautiful scenery, surrounded by mountains.
Due to the remote and undeveloped region, the Manaslu region is believed to be in total contrast to trekking in the Annapurna region, rating ‘Round Manaslu Trek’ the first option for those who prefer to immersed in nature and love adventure.
The best trekking seasons are between spring (March to May) & autumn (September to November). June to August is the monsoon season, when the heavy rainfall causes the region to remain drowned most of the time.
