Manaslu Circuit trek – A Far Less Crowded Than Other Classic Treks In Nepal

Posted last September 9, 2017, 1:07 am in Travel Guide report article

The Manaslu Circuit trek is far less crowded than other classic treks in Nepal and remains a true remote adventure, despite its increasing in popularity since teahouses were built here in 2010. The Manaslu Circuit trek features all the great aspects of a classic trek in Nepal: epic scenery, spectacular suspension bridge crossings and a 5100m (17,000-ft.) Himalayan pass.

Getting to the trailhead of Manasuy Circuit:

The trailhead of the Manaslu Circuit is the closest to Kathmandu of the main Nepalese trek. That said, it is still an audacious 80 miles drive from Kathmandu to Soti Khola, which takes almost six hours by car or more than 8 hours via a public bus. It the conditions of road are challenging (which is often the case at the tail end of the monsoon in September) you may need to commence walking in Arughatm which incorporates an additional day.

Permits needed for Manaslu Circuit Trek:

You require a trekking permit to trek Manaslu. For your knowledge, solo trekkers are not permitted here and a minimum group size of two is needed.

Add Tsum Valley To Your Itinerary:

If you have the time, we highly recommend extending your trek for another week by adding the side trip to Tsum Valley to your itinerary. Tsum Valley is even more remote than the main Manaslu trail, and has incredible views, encompassing the popular view point above Mu Gompa.

The Manaslu Circuit Trekking is often compared with Annapurna Circuit and Everest Three High Passes trek but the scenery is somewhat different. The national parks of the two regions are next to each other so they are connected. Manaslu is much closer to Tibetan side, so the culture you will see here is more Tibetan. Up to this day, it remains a remote and virgin trail and less crowded than any other treks in Nepal.

One great thing about venturing into this unidentified world of Manaslu is that it’s not at all as costly as one would think.  In fact, it is considerably affordable than Everest, but don't think it to be affordable than Langtang & Annapurna.
Trekking Manaslu after the 2015 earthquake

The Manaslu Trek is open for trekking after the 2015 earthquakes. The Manaslu area has sustained damage and landslides, but the trails and lodges have been repaired and trekkers have successfully completed the trek in the spring of 2016.

So, don’t be too late! Plan your Manaslu Circuit trek now!
