Manaslu Circuit Trek - 18 Days

Manaslu Circuit Trek - Monastery in Manaslu
All Inclusive Price $1530USD

Manaslu Circuit Trek indicates the round of Mt. Manaslu which is eighth highest mountain in the world with the elevation of 8163m from the sea level. Being a controlled area, Manaslu Circuit Trek needs a special permit for foreign people. So that; this place is also known as restricted area. However, there is no any restricted area in Nepal, all the so called restricted regions are actually the controlled areas. The Manaslu Region was long time hidden until the trekking permit for this region was opened.

Indeed, the Manaslu Circuit Trek is blessed with unveiled traditions and cultures of Manaslu Region as well as the stunning snow-capped mountain views of eighth highest mountain Manaslu. Larkya La Pass is the ultimate point of this trek which is 4446m high from the sea level. Despite being nearer from Kathmandu, it is one of the wildest and loneliest regions in Nepal and the world because of the lack of Motor ways and the wild biological diversity.

In Manaslu region, you are blessed with the real Tibetan culture because Manaslu Region is closer to Tibetan border and people of Manaslu Region are of Tibetan origin. However, they are Nepali Citizens. In fact, some of them still speak Tibetan language and they do not even speak Nepali language.

The trekkers need to have high fitness level to go for Manaslu Circuit Trek since the most of the trail follow the walking on the mountain trails at the altitude above 3000m. It follows off the beaten trails because it has not been traveled by many tourist and not popular like Everest Base Camp Trek and Annapurna Circuit Trek. By the way, we have designed a suitable itinerary package for this trail ensuring the proper acclimatization as well as adventure trail on the Himalaya.
