Trekking in Nepal Mt.Manslu ( 8163m eight highest mountain in the world and is one of the fourteen 8000⁺ meter peaks. it dominates the Manaslu range bordering the Ganesh Himal range on the east and Annapurna to the west. Since the border with Tibet is a strategic location. The area is considered as restricted trekking destination where trek must be fully organized through a reputed trekking Agency. Like in other restricted trekking places, the permit is issued and regulated by the Immigration Department of Nepal. The area is relatively untouched by tourism but the numbers are exceeding dramatically the Manaslu circuit Trek start from a small village near the historic Gorkha (Gurkha) kingdom now a district of Nepal. We pass through lush hills and canyons dotted with enchanting villages on our way to Larkya la (5163m) one of the beautiful passes of the Himalaya. We drop down from Larky la to Marshayangdi valley, part of the Annapurna circuit and to the road which leads us back to Kathmandu. Since Annapurna circuit dying due to road construction, the Manaslu circuit is dramatically becoming one of the very popular trekking place in the Himalaya.

We can even enjoy hot chocolates, variety of breads, variety of drinks, and snacks. Breakfast of a day will be served from the tea house or lodge menu where we spent the night. Lunch will be served on the way to destination and dinner and breakfast will be served at the tea house where you spend the night.

We will spend 12 nights in standard tea house or lodge or hotel in which there are unheated rooms with wooden beds and foam mattresses. I will try to provide Best Tea house as much as possible, however tea houses or lodges of some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities

Health and Experience Requirements

Manaslu Circuit Trekking is a  difficult  trip suitable for passionate adventurers who have ability to walk at least 6-7 hours a day with a light day pack. In some days we might even need to walk more hours. Walking in higher altitude is physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, those in excellent physical condition with above average fitness and some hiking experience can do this trek. Positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination are things that aid to accomplish trip successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior of the trip are good idea to enhance strength and stability.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition upon trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.

Acclimatization

Manaslu Circuit Trekking itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. Itineraries generally allow sufficient time to acclimatize. So, for a safe trek, it is absolutely essential to allow sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are symptoms of AMS.
