The duration of the Manaslu Circuit Trek typically ranges from 10 to 14 days, depending on the starting and ending points, side trips, and acclimatization days. It's important to allow enough time for acclimatization and to fully enjoy the scenic beauty and cultural highlights along the route.

The best time to do the Manaslu Circuit Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These months offer clear skies, stable weather conditions, and comfortable temperatures, making for ideal trekking conditions. However, it's essential to check weather forecasts and trail conditions before embarking on the trek.

The trek also requires a Restricted Area Permit, as the route passes through restricted areas. These permits can be obtained through authorized trekking agencies in Kathmandu or Pokhara.

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is considered moderately challenging.

Private transport allows you to travel at your own pace and make stops along the way for sightseeing or rest breaks.

Public Bus: Public buses operate between Kathmandu and the town of Arughat, which is a common starting point for the Manaslu Circuit Trek. The bus journey takes approximately 7-9 hours, depending on road conditions and traffic. While public buses are more budget-friendly, they can be crowded and less comfortable than private transport.

This option provides convenience and peace of mind, as the agency takes care of all logistical arrangements, including transport, permits, and accommodation.

Ultimately, the best transport option for the Manaslu Trek depends on your budget, time constraints, and personal preferences. It's essential to consider factors such as comfort, convenience, and reliability when choosing your mode of transportation to ensure a smooth and enjoyable trekking experience.

With proper preparation, including physical conditioning, acclimatization, and adequate gear, many trekkers find the experience rewarding and memorable.

This pass is located in the Manaslu Conservation Area of Nepal and offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks.

The trails are in good condition, but the colder temperatures, especially at higher elevations, require proper gear and preparation. As the month progresses, the nights become increasingly colder 

General Considerations for Autumn Trekking

Packing Essentials: During these months, it's important to pack:

Layered clothing to adjust to temperature variations

Warm clothing for the colder nights

Waterproof and windproof jackets

Sturdy trekking boots

Sun protection such as hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen 

September, October, and November are excellent months for trekking the Manaslu Circuit. With stable weather, moderate temperatures, and clear skies, these months offer some of the best conditions for enjoying the stunning landscapes and unique cultural experiences along the trek. Proper preparation, including packing the right gear and securing necessary permits, is key to a successful and enjoyable trekking experience during these peak months.

Guide Ramesh, and our porter chandra, were both amazing. They were professional, experienced, thoughtful and fun. We really enjoyed hiking the beautiful Manaslu Circuit with them for 13 days and we would recommend them to anyone! Every day they were helpful with the guesthouses and they always knew the best places to stay and the best restaurants to eat lunch. We felt very safe, Ramesh was careful, checking that we felt good at high altitude and he has so much knowledge of the trekking routes, it is incredible! He told us all about the local villages and every day the hike was challenging, but also really enjoyable, he would slow down or speed up, depending on your trekking ability. Ramesh is a very kind and friendly person, with a great sense of humor and good English.I will remember our Manaslu trek forever! Thank you Ramesh and Chandra!!!

I would say that the itinerary that we were sent by email from the company before the trek needs updating, because no one walks any further than Tilije - there is a jeep service to Besisahar, and the road is very dusty for walking. We would have liked to know this in advance because we might have spent more time in the villages at the beginning of the trek, before Larke Pass. We finished the trek a day early because we didn't need to take a rest day.

The company organized our car to Pokhara and our hotel because we were a day early, which was very helpful. They also transferred our bags from Kathmandu to Pokhara while we were trekking.

Manaslu Circuit Trek with Tilak and Diness!! November 2019

15th Mar, 2022


We have just completed the 16 day hike for the Manaslu Circuit Trek in Nepal with our guide Ramesh from Adventure Nepal Eco Treks. We have totally enjoyed the adventure hike though it was a strenuous one. We covered at least 160km from Arkhet to Chamche. Our guide Ramesh was very friendly and we did not encounter any problem at all relating to the hikes, food were well taken care of and accommodations were nicely arranged.

We have previously trekked Annapurna Base Camp Trek with them last year and totally satisfied with them. Devi the owner of the company was so helpful and obliging in the preparation of the itinerary for us. We hope to visit more of Nepal with their assistance.

Manaslu Circuit Trek With Adventure Nepal Eco Treks 2019

Difficulty is in the legs and mind of the hiker... Most of the route is inter village pathways, which really cannot be "difficult". Crossing the pass is strenuous and the trail is not all that good especially on the west side. Excess snow can make passage impossible; you must have the time to backtrack if necessary.

Trek will take a minimum of /12/13 days, preferably more. Thus guide is about $450 for each. Permits are $75/week = 150 + conservation area fees = $180. Food should be   $30day = $390. Total so far = $920.Seems that for $1300/person you can even hire a porter plus Local transport.

Manaslu trek in March 2019!!

We did the trek for 13 days last November/December 2018, there's no snows, the pass was clear. But we did it in low season; some of the lodges were already closed.

We spent around 1000 dollar per person for 13 days including the guide, food, lodges, permit and Local transport. We had best Guide Kumar through trekking agency Adventure Nepal Eco Trek.

The lodge price is around 800 to 1200 for the two of us.

Food in Manaslu is very basic. We spent daily for food and lodge less than 3500 to 3200 rupee I would say about 3000 rupee a day if you are trekking in very budget.

Compare to Annapurna Circuit, Manaslu is a bit tough with more up and downs!!!

We had an amazing time doing manaslu circuit trek. Our guide Tilak was very experienced and made sure we acclimatized well before the pass. While others were resting at the tea house, we were practicing 900 ascents. He always made sure we had good rooms and always ordered our dinner early so we could eat earlier. He also made many adjustments to the itinerary according to our pace and our request to jeep the dirt road on the way back. Our porter guide was also very experienced and observant. He was also always in the kitchen helping with making our meals, which I never saw other porters do. We will definitely trek with them again when we come back to Nepal!

Manaslu Trek superb!!! November 2018!

We had an amazing week in Nepal perfectly organized by Devi Baral Adventure Nepal Eco Trek and trek with a funny and experienced guide Tilack. All flights and accommodation have been booked in advance and luckily we had a great weather so trekking was a real fun. We have been really good looked after, Tilak made sure we had a nice meal, fruits and warm tea ready after a long trek. We managed to get an amazing view of Maanslu over the larkya la pass. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to have stress less holiday in Nepal. Ask with Adventure Nepal Eco treks
