Generic placeholder image


Manaslu circuit trek is one of the restricted trekking regions in Nepal. If you choose to trek in this restricted area then you have to get a special permit from the immigration office. Manaslu circuit trek includes famous Larke la Pass 5102 m. This is one of the wilderness trekking which lies in between two different districts of Nepal. The trekking in Manaslu Circuit starts driving to AArughat or Machikhola from Kathmandu. The duration of this trekking is 14 days. After Machikhola we will start hiking on the rough road which is under construction. We will pass different villages with different cultures, people, dress, terrace land.  In this region, you can do another trek like the Manaslu trek via Tsumvalley and Tsum valley trek.

Manaslu Circuit Trek leads you to the lap of Mt. Manaslu with a height of 80163m. There are many natural beauties on the way to Manaslu. When you reach Shyala there is Pungin gomba where you can do a day site trip and acclimatize for the next few days. In Shama, there is a Birendra lake and you can either go to Mt. Manaslu Base camp at the height of 4319m for the side trip. This village people follow Buddhism and there is no killing of animals. You can see yak grazing in the high Himalayas with the snow-capped mountains. After reaching to Shyala the trail is not that hard but you have to well acclimatize to go further high up. Samdo and Dharmasala are the last spots before doing Larke La pass. Everest Base Camp Trek
