The Manaslu Circuit Trek is challenging experience that offers a perfect blend of rich cultural heritage and impressive landscapes and –above all – stunning views of Manaslu itself, the world’s 8th highest mountain (8,163m).

The Manaslu circuit includes the challenging Larke pass (5,213m) from which you can enjoy dramatic views of Himal Chuli, Manaslu, Cheo Himal and Himlung Himal. And unlike the Everest Base Camp Trek or the Annapurna Circuit, this route is a lot less busy. The Manaslu Circuit also offers interesting geographical and ethnic variation. The different ethnic groups living in this region include Gurng, Tibetan and Brachman.

The Manaslu circuit trek was only officially opened in 1991. It starts at the historically significant Gorkha Bazar and Dhading Arughat (or as an alternate route from Trisuli Bazaar). We follow the Budi Gandaki valley and enjoy its fascinating and hugely precipitous course. We cross the snow covered Larke La and descend into the Marsyangdi river valley. Some trekkers continue their trek to the famous Annapurna circuit, Tilicho Lake or Narphu valley as well as the Rupinala Pass. You can also just trek to Manaslu, cross the Larka La pass and then finish the trek in the Marsyangdi valley.

Contact us and start planning for this ultimate experience. We are happy to adjust the course according to your preferences.

Some Highlights:

  • The world longest pass Larkya La and enjoy incredible picturesque views of 8th highest mountain 8,156 m with lot of other stunning mountain vistas
  • Explore picturesque Tibetan villages and experience unspoiled Tibetan cultures
  • Enjoy one of the most beautiful sections of trail in Nepal
