Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Accommodations:
  • As per our published quotations, we have calculated the cost based on three star categorized hotels/resorts in major cities which can be easily changed as per the preference of the clients. Apart from the cities, entire route of Manaslu Circuit Trail contains comfortable tea houses for overnight stay where we choose best of the best available lodges. Accommodations in all places can be used as per Single, Double, Triple and Twin sharing basis as per requirements.
  • Meals:
  • We generally provide BB Plan in cities so one can choose varieties of foods in different restaurants in around the town. During our organized trekking of Manaslu Circuit, we will provide all meals (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner) where you can choose varieties of foods; Nepali Continental, Tibetan, Indian, Italian etc from the menu. While we are in trek, you will get dinner and breakfast in a same tea house where you stay overnight and take en-route lunch way to next destination.
  • Physical Conditions and Experience Required:
  • Manaslu Circuit Trail contains amazing routes which starts from very low altitude’s scenic paths and gains the altitude until we reach at one of the adventurous Larkay La Pass at 5135 meters. This trek is suitable for adventure motivated trekkers who have ability to walk generally 5/6 hrs per day by carrying light private backpack. The difficulty level of trail determines by level of snows in the trail - sometime the larkay la pass contains massive snow walls and sometime the same pass could be very easier with less snows. In some cases, walk in a high altitude may attract altitude sickness, as we know that prevention is better than cure – slow and steady walk would be the perfect solution. We suggest every trekker who are planning to come Nepal for trekking adventure to do daily around an hour physical workout (jogging, hiking, cycling, gym, etc) prior to a couple of weeks. Mountaineering technical skills are not required for this trek, but previous short trekking experience would be better.
  • Best Season for Manaslu Circuit Trek:
  • Trekking in Nepalese mountain is a seasonal activity. Basically, 3 months in autumn – September, October & November and 3 months in spring – March, April & May are the perfect time for trekking. During the time, weather would be clear, sunny and warm in himalayas thus we can have great views of mountains. Nevertheless, some adventure-seeking clients who do not want to walk with crowed environment also can choose December, January and February months for this trip. Monsoon season three months (June, July and August) will be ruined by rains.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 15 travelers
