Manaslu Circuit Trek
1300

Overview

Nepal is the ultimate paradise for the adventure junkies that get their thrill from the numerous trekking routes and options to see some of the top ten tallest mountains in the world in just one trekking journey.  This trekking is growing in popularity as an alternative to Annapurna circuit trekking. So, it is no wonder that hundreds and thousands of people from all over the world visit Nepal every trekking season to experience a trip that allows them to experience a beautiful mixture of nature, culture, art and adventure.  Though Nepal is a famous trekking destination now that allows tourists to enjoy the diverse terrain along with its variety of flora and fauna, it wasn’t always so. It wasn’t until 1991 that all parts of the trekking regions were open to the tourists. Since then a number of the trekking regions on the border of Nepal and Tibet have opened for tourism. One of such lovely treks is the Manaslu circuit trekking.

The Manaslu circuit trekking is one of the best treks known for its solidarity and preservation. This region sees very few visitors so that the trails are less trodden making the journey a peaceful, natural and beautiful experience perfect for those seeking a getaway from the everyday busy lives.  Not just the spellbinding natural beauty, but the traditional Tamang and Sherpa settlements with their unique cultures are another highlight of the trip.  The Manasli Circuit Trek tour  starts from Kathmandu where we visit the UNESCO world heritage sites and then to Arughat from where the actual trekking begins.  The entire route is adorned with the perfect views of the snow-clad mountains, unique combination of rich cultural heritages and adventure amidst vantage points with incomparable beauty and rare bio-diversity. Mt. Manaslu standing at 8156m is the highest peak in the area which is also the eighth highest peak in the world. The  Manaslu region is famous for its high altitude glacier lakes, fascinating flora and fauna, cultural diversity and richness which make it one of the favorite destinations for trekkers around the world. The standard circuit trek begins at Arughat and ends at Besishar and requires a trekking permit to travel all the way through the Manaslu area.

The total during of the Manaslu Circuit Trek can be 14 days with trekking and hiking as the main activities. It is considered to be a moderate level trekking with cultural, historical and natural tours and a maximum elevation of 5160m. The best season to visit the region is from March to May in spring and September to December during the winter.

  1. Manaslu Circuit Trek
    Although we set off during the beginning of May which is near the end of the trekking season, we still had amazing weather with no rain in the day. The tea houses were all very hospitable and the food (mainly Dal Bhat) was outstanding. Raj our guide and was like a walking encyclopaedia as he was able to answer all our questions about the surroundings! His knowledge and humour never failed even when we were 5100m high. He always put our safety first and was very reliable (except when it came to cards, don't trust the Nepalese shuffle ) He went the extra mile by carrying dozens of pomegranates and apples up the mountain so we could have them for pudding! The views throughout the trip were incredible and Raj was happy to do some extra side trips such as visiting local Monastries or Lakes. The local people are so welcoming and the children that run around in little posies are great entertainment. The trip was a perfect balance between walking and recreation. I highly recommend this trip and especially Raj, who's the best guide in Nepal! Nepal Eco Adventure always replied to our emails immediately and were able to facilitate all of our needs. We planned to do a 17 day trek but ended up walking a bit further each day so finished 2 days earlier. They happily changed the itinerary and presented us with a certificate at the end.
  2. Manaslu Circuit Trek
    I researched the internet for Manaslu circuit trek and Nepal Eco Adventure was the most responsive and the least expensive company. I like that everything on the trek was included in the price, I ended up spending very little money. They provided me with some gear so I didn't have to buy that too. All in all great value. For me, at first Kathmandu was a very chaotic place and it was nice to have an airport pickup included. Also I had a private whole day tour of Kathmandu and it was awesome! I learned about the culture, arhitecture and history. The guide was very knowledgeable and a great photographer! Also I send home aproximately 40 postcards and the he kindly helped me with all the stamps and sending them (it is hard to get around Kathmandu main post office). After 2 days in Kathmandu we finally got on the bus to Arkhet Bazar where we would start our trek. We drove with the local bus and it was a great insight on how the lives goes on in the rural parts of Nepal. We were a trekking group of 3 and our guide was Ram Karki "Ramu". He was not only the best guide ever, but also a great motivator and friend. He never pushed us, but was very supportive, advised us on what food to eat to stay healthy and get enough energy. When we got higher and trekking became more difficult, he was telling us to go "slowly, slowly", to enjoy the nature and the views. It was a true pleasure having you as a guide! I ended up the trip with Everest mountain flight, which was ok, but definitely not worth the price. I would one day like to return to Nepal, it is truly an amazing country. And would again choose to go trekking and ask for Ram Karki "Ramu" to be my guide.
  3. Manaslu Circuit Trek
    I would definitely recommend this company since they have brilliant guides and they treat everyone they work with very well, including paying the porters a fair wage, which not every company does! In March my best friend and I attempted the Manaslu circuit with the brilliant guidance of Jiba Sherpa and wonderful organisation from Nepal Eco Adventure! The trek was amazing but was made all the more incredible thanks to our guide. He was extremely friendly and clever and with him we always felt safe in a circuit that has many dangers. Unfortunately when we got to 3000m high it snowed around 40cm in 24 hours and we had to turn around as all the camps higher up were closed. However Jiba managed to organize for us to get down the circuit quickly and get a keep to the Annapurna region to complete a short 5 day trek around Poon Hill. As a result we could trek for all the 17 days that we had booked! Also my friend and I were already in Nepal and were staying in different places and Nepal Eco Adventure were brilliant in accommodating this since we didn't need their transport and other things offered in the trek.
