The Manaslu Circuit Trek

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is a popular hiking trail located in the Gorkha district of Nepal. It is considered one of the most challenging and rewarding treks in the country, offering stunning views of snow-capped peaks, pristine forests, and traditional villages.


The trek is named after Mount Manaslu, which is the eighth highest peak in the world and stands at 8,156 meters above sea level. The trail takes you through diverse landscapes, from lush green forests and terraced fields to high mountain passes and glaciers.


The trek starts in the town of Arughat and follows the Budi Gandaki River valley, passing through several traditional villages and ancient monasteries. The trail then crosses the Larkya La Pass, which stands at an altitude of 5,160 meters, before descending to the Marsyangdi Valley and eventually reaching the town of Besisahar.


The Manaslu Circuit Trek usually takes around 15 to 20 days to complete, depending on your itinerary and hiking pace. The best time to go is from September to November or March to May, when the weather is mild and clear, and the views are spectacular.


However, the trek requires a good level of fitness and experience in high-altitude hiking, as the trail can be strenuous and challenging at times. It's recommended to hire a guide and a porter for the trek, as they can help with navigation, carry your gear, and provide local insights.
