Manaslu Circuit Trek

15 Days


The Manaslu Circuit trek is a stunning 12-day journey (15 days including travel and days in Kathmandu) which treks around the World’s 8th highest mountain, beginning in the Maccha Khola, going up and back along a different path, ending in Dharapani. The trailhead of the Manaslu Circuit trek is the closest to Kathmandu of the major Nepalese treks.

The Manaslu Circuit Trek features everything you’d want from a classic trek in Nepal: Epic scenery, intimate encounters with local people and their ancient culture, and a 17,000-foot (5,100 m) Himalayan pass crossing.

Why trek the Manaslu Circuit Trek?

Experts consider the Manaslu Circuit Trek among the best treks in Nepal. Despite its recent rise in popularity, the Manaslu Trek remains remote and off-the-beaten-path compared to the better-known teahouse treks in Nepal. The trek takes you around Manaslu, the world’s eighth highest mountain at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft).

1.How safe is this trek?

This is one of the safest of the high-altitude treks with medical and evacuation facility. But you should try not to be beneficiary of these facilities which surely make a hole in your pockets. You must listen to the GGIM team’s advice. Before the trek, you should follow a fitness training module to prepare for this trek. We will share a training module with you once you register for the trek.

2.Give me some tips about level of fitness required

Trekkers are supposed to be in good physical conditions. You should increase the level of intensity of training over 2-3 months period. Apart from daily fitness, you should carry 4-6 KG load on your back during the practice treks. It will help you simulate the trekking conditions. This trek has uphill as well as downhill trails and on some specific trails, you may even have to climb little steeper.

3.Climate and min temperatures during the trek

Climate is generally pleasant during the day time. As the evening approaches, it starts becoming colder. At night, temperatures may reach subzero levels. Care must be taken to have appropriate warm clothing. The hotels provide blankets at night. However, you may need a sleeping bag as the weather gets very cold. We recommend to rent down jackets and from local shops in case you don’t have them.

How is the food and accommodation during the trek?

You will be staying hotels on a twin/triple sharing basis. All the beds are provided with blankets. Common dining hall has a heater to warm your bodies. Generally, the breakfast menu is like Musli- milk, Omelet- bread- butter, pan cakes etc. For Lunch we mostly recommend Daal-bhat (local Nepali cuisine) and at dinner, there are many options. You can choose whatever you want from the menu. We recommend not to eat non veg during the trek as it is generally not a fresh meat. We will serve you hot water for drinking. There is a famous Sherpa mantra for food during the trek: “Daal –bhat power, 24 hour!”
