Off the beaten
Manaslu trekking exhibits the sensational mountain panoramas, fascinating culture, and biological diversity, spanning altitudes from 600 to 5200 meter – one of Nepal’s last Himalayan jewels. The circuit is a stunning trek with spectacular views of Mount Manaslu (8163 m) and the Ganesh Himal Range, among others. Along the path, you encounter an interesting mix of authentic Hindu and Tibetan-style Buddhist villages following the spectacular Budhi Gandaki River all the way from Arugath to its source just below the Larkya Pass (5125 m).
The crossing of the Larkya Pass (5125 m) can be tough when there is snow. However, the stunning landscape with the mighty Himalayas standing straight above you and the enormous glaciers make it more than worth the effort. While on the trip we get to marvel at the magnificent views of Mt. Manaslu (8163m), the eight tallest mountains in the world, coupled with a chance to witness the rich local heritage and biological diversity of the region.
This Manaslu trekking region is a natural habitat for many elusive wild animals including the snow leopard, grey wolf, musk deer, Himalayan Thar and blue sheep, Keep your eyes open!! Trekking routes at lower Manaslu section is already rebuilt which is being affected by the April 2015 earthquake. With its remoteness and secluded solidarity, ‘Around Manaslu Trek’ has been the first choice for those who prefer to become one with nature.
If you can walk 5 miles a day and are in good aerobic shape (with a doctor’s approval), you can do fine and make it. The actual trekking is on mostly level ground with a few sections of steep hillsides – up and down. You should not carry more than a light day pack with a jacket, water and snacks. However, it is the altitude that creates the main issues. That said, the better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the overall experience.
There’s no specific training needed if you are reasonably fit. If you are completely sedentary, then yes some cardiovascular training would be recommended. Stair climbing or hill walking will get most people ready. Remember you’ll be walking up and down rough paths for 8-12 days. You’ll be at altitude too which will make things much harder. Having a good level of fitness will help you enjoy your trek more and always remember, it’s not a race!

It depends on your route, but EBC trek usually takes about 15 days. We suggest you not to go on a rush trek primarily due to the altitude. You will be landed in Lukla at (9,250 feet) and go to EBC at (17,500 f.). If you go too fast or rush your itinerary, you might get altitude sickness which is harmful.
