Trip Introduction: 14 Days Manaslu Circuit Trekking

The 14 Days Manaslu Circuit Trekking takes you to the circumambulation of the 8th highest peak in the world, Mount Manaslu (8,156m), and the exploration of the challenging trail in a remote region in the vicinity of the Nepalese Himalayas. Presence of Hindu and Buddhist culture, conserved wildlife and rare floral diversity, stunning mountain vistas, raging and perennial rivers, vertiginous bridges, and an authentic rural lifestyle that has preserved the aura for ages. A quaint trekking trail, Manaslu Circuit Trekking is at par with the Annapurna Circuit Trek or the trek to the Everest Region in terms of difficulty, diversity, scenery, and heritage. Join this trek, in a restricted trekking region, to explore the remote areas close to Tibet with full of wilderness, moderate strain, spectacular geography, culturally fascinating areas, the challenging pass of Larkya La (5123m), and a superb view of the snowy peaks including Annapurna II (7939m), Kang Guru (6981m), Himlung Peak (7,125m), Cheo Peak (6820m), besides the majestic Manaslu Peak. You will just enjoy the adventure here!

The adventure in the un-trampled trail of Manaslu Circuit Trekking begins from Arughat and traverses through the bamboo forests and Gurung settlements along the gorge of Budi Gandaki River. Navigating through several rural settlements of Soti Khola, Almara, and Machha Khola, dense forest, past scenic landscape and waterfalls, viewing the snowcapped mountain, and encountering the ups and downs of the trail, we reach Jagat. En route, we also stop at the natural hot spring, called Tatopani in a local language. The ascent along the trail continues, as we trek through narrow valleys, and small settlements including Gha and Lho, pass the Mani stones and hike to the lateral moraines of the glacier and ancient Gompa to settle Samagaon. Through the wide grassy valleys, terraced hills, and settlements with unique arrangements, we trek to the settlement of Dharmashala, a stoppage before conquering the challenging Larkya La Pass (5,215m). After enjoying a spectacular view of the towering peaks including Mt. Manaslu, we shall descent through moraines to Bhimphedi and through a small pass, some settlements, terraced fields, and cultivations to join the major trail of Annapurna Circuit Trek at the Gurung settlement of Tal. The journey continues to the lower elevations through the settlements of mid-hills such as Bahundanda and Besi Sahar following the down streams of the mighty Marshayngdi River. We shall then drive back to Kathmandu and have a full day's exploration of the medieval cultural, historical, and religious heritages of the buzzing city before concluding the adventure of Manaslu Circuit Trekking. NarPhu Region inhabited by Tibetan immigrants decorated with colorful prayer flags, monasteries, and Mani walls, and the cultural diversities mark some of the highlights of this trek.

Manaslu Circuit Trekking is a moderately strenuous trekking experience and thereby needs the trekkers to possess above-average fitness levels; previous trekking experience is an added advantage. Larkya La Pass is challenging for some experienced trekkers as well. Trekkers should be able to endure an average of 6-7 hours of trekking per day with a light backpack and a passion for exploration of remote areas.

Is this trip right for you?

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is a challenging still demanding trip that demands high physical fitness and previous trekking experience sometimes. The journey consists of many days of trekking over hilly and rocky terrain, as well as crossing a high-altitude pass. As a result, it may not be appropriate for everyone.

If you are in good physical condition, have trekked in high-altitude places before, and love a tough adventure, the Manaslu Trek may be a wonderful alternative for you. It is also important to remember that the trek takes you through some rural locations with few facilities, so you should be okay with basic facilities and be prepared to deal with some pain.

  • Fitness Level: The Manaslu Circuit Trek is difficult and involves many hours of trekking on steep, rocky terrain. To complete the trek in 14 days, you need to be in good shape, including cardiovascular endurance and strength training. You should be able to walk 6-8 hours each day and be at ease hiking at high elevations. Trekking Planner Nepal suggests you do physical exercise before embarking on the trek. You are also suggested to hike daily for hours to keep yourself healthy.
  • Altitude sickness: One of the most serious concerns of high-altitude trekking is altitude sickness. You can see the symptoms such as mild headaches and nausea, loss of appetite, heat stroke, dizziness, and vomiting, and also can cause serious disorders such as high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) and high altitude cerebral edema (HACE) (HACE). Trekking Planner Nepal suggests you provide enough time for acclimatization, which involves gradually rising to higher elevations and enabling your body to acclimate to decrease oxygen levels. Altitude sickness can be increased by rushing the journey and skipping rest days.
  • Trekking Experience: The Manaslu Circuit Trek is a remote and challenging climb that requires previous trekking knowledge and experience. You should be familiar with trekking equipment, be able to handle rough terrain and be ready to deal with changing weather conditions. If you're new to trekking, start with a shorter and less difficult trek to gain experience.
  • Time Constraints: If you only have 14 days for the journey, finishing it in 14 days may be your only choice. You should always keep in mind, however, that rushing the trek might limit enjoyment but raise the danger of altitude sickness. You are always requested to allow additional time for the rekt if possible to achieve appropriate acclimatization and make the most of the experience.

In summary, it is feasible to do the Manaslu Circuit Trek in 14 Days, but you must consider your fitness level, previous trekking experience, and the danger of altitude sickness.

                                Manaslu Circuit Short Trek

                                I went on the Manaslu trek with my guide Sandip and porter Binod. It was an incredible experience and I felt really taken care of by Binod and Sandip who were both approachable, informative and fun to be around. All of the tea houses and meals were great, and I loved that everyone fell into a small community as you saw the same people each day.

                                I also found Dipak really easy to communicate with and he always responds really quickly and offered with help non trek related questions i had. I'd definitely recommend the Manasku trek and Trekking Planner to anyone looking to explore.
