Manaslu Circuit Trek - 18 Days

The Manaslu Circuit trek is a stunning 18-day journey  which treks around the world’s eighth highest mountain, beginning in the busy market town of Arughat, going up and back along a different path, ending in Besi Sahar. This is a trek for someone who wants something different in Nepal but still offers the most striking and jaw-dropping scenery.

Many people liken the Manaslu Circuit trek to the Annapurna before it got busy! It is in a region which was closed to outsiders until the early 90’s and tourism is still restricted. It is also not quite as high as the Annapurna circuit and really is a stunning and less trodden path.

The drive from Kathmandu to Arughat takes around 7 hours and the drive from Besi Sahar to Kathmandu takes around 6 hours. The trek ascent is for 13 days, which includes two full days rest and acclimatisation, to the last settlement of Larkya Phedi. After one day climbing to the high point of Larkya La (for panoramic views of Himlung Himal, Cheo Himal, Kang Guru and Annapurna II), the descent is in four days.
