Manaslu Circuit Trek offers tranquil beauty and cultural harmony while trekking through a series of landmarks. The off-beat trails on the trek also display authentic Tibetan and Nubri culture. In this trek, you get to visit Manaslu Base Camp and Larkya La Pass (5160m) as well. All in all, views of the Mt. Manaslu (8163m) and Manaslu Conservation Area are the highlights of the trek.
Trekking Manaslu is 17 days long and starts at Kathmandu. On the first day, you explore the historic city of Kathmandu and prepare for the trek. You also obtain the permits to enter the Manaslu Conservation Area. Then, you drive to Soti Khola and formally start the trek. The trek heads north towards Bihi passing Philim on the way. Now, you head west and pass Lho, Sho, and Sama Gaon villages. Then, you visit the Manaslu Base Camp and Birendra Lake. Next, you cross the Larkya La Pass (5160m) and descend along the Marshyangdi River.
You have to trek for 5 hours on average on a daily basis. You can enjoy the views of Ganesh, Shringi, and Manaslu ranges on the trek. The flora and fauna in the Manaslu Conservation Area offer you company along the trail. Likewise, you can also visit ancient Lho Rimung Gompa, monasteries and cultural monuments on the trek.
The best time to do this trek is during spring and autumn seasons. Since the trekking trails are hard and off-beat, you need to be in good physical shape for the trek. You can also do the Tsum Valley trek or join Annapurna Circuit if you have the time and want to explore.
