Manaslu Trek Quick Booking

Manasalu trek is restricated trekking trail of the Nepal. Mount Manaslu (8163m) is the eighth highest mountain in the world. Manaslu is standing isolated and yet in the very center of Nepalese Himalayas. Trekking in Manasalu offers you to explore the majestic height and exceptional views of glorious Mount Manaslu. The low-to-high range of altitudes presents such varied flora and fauna and mostly a wide cultural spectrum which includes strong influences from Tibet mixing with typical and diverse Nepalese culture and ethnicity. Well, the contrasting ascent and descent gradients and the spacing of lodges at the higher altitudes represent the area as the best trekking destination of Nepal.

"Thanks to Nepal Himalayas Trekking for making the best experience of a lifetime possible. We were quite lucky to get the best guide Hari and two porters Bishnu and Purna; it would have been impossible to do this trek without their insight sharing, support, and humour. From the early start, we had everything organized and managed which also went true throughout the trek; our guide and crews made sure that we had everything needed. We gathered a lot of beautiful moments trekking in the remote trail, crossing the glaciers, suspension bridges, narrow paths, and enjoying the beauty of mountains. Once again, I want to thank all you guys who made this amazing trek possible for us. Dhanyabaad." Wayne O. Bearden, USA November - 2017
 
During Manaslu trekking, we ascend to the foot of the north face of Manaslu. We will be rewarded with a stunning panorama and finest aspects of spectacular massifs. We start our trek with the drive to Arughat from Kathmandu and then follow the meandering Budhi Gandaki River northwards to the village of Deng. Apart from Manaslu, we will also get chance to explore the stunning panorama of other mountains including, Dhaulagiri, Himlung Himal (7125m), Annapurna massif, and Ganesh Himal Peaks.
Nepal Himalayas Trekking welcomes you for this wonderful Manaslu Trek. I assure you to make your Nepal holidays worth remembering forever.
Also praised for its trails by numerous teahouses, Manaslu trek is one of the best remote trek in Nepal.  You shall approach at the base of the eighth tallest peak in the world—the Mt. Manaslu, through rich vegetation, geographical and cultural diversity. The Samdo, Namrung, and Sama Gaun villages offer you the amazing views of Mt. Manaslu, and rich cultural experiences. With the increase in the number of teahouses in this region, and remote experience of the villages, this trek is being a competing substitute against Annapurna Base Camp trek. If you want to trek in 'a road less travelled by', and want to embrace some adventure with cultural diversity, do not miss this trek.
Larkya La Pass is the highest point you shall ascend in this trek, which is prone to unprecedented storm, through exposed and rough terrain. Though it doesn’t have any sharp edge, you would keep your legs working overlooking the distant prayer flags blowing in the wind. If you are physically fit, capable to enduring long hours of walking, don't have knee or ankle problem, you can easily complete this trek. With the increase in altitude, you shall experience climatic change, and the dominancy of Hindu culture replaced by Buddhist, often highly influenced by Tibetan culture. Wild animals such as musk deer, snow leopard, grey wolf, Himalayan Thar, Blue Sheep, etc. can be found in this region.
This is one of the less busy tea house trekking tails in the country, where a trekker cannot go on his/her own. You must be accompanied by a guide and be travelling at least in a group of two members. You have to take Annapurna Conservation Area Project Permit, Manaslu Conservation Area Project Permit, and Restricted Area Permit. You will not require to have the TIMS card if you have the Restricted Area Permit. October is the busiest season of all for this trek. You will have enough time for acclimatization. Be slow, drink plenty of clean water, eat hygienic food, and stay warm. The room for Dharmasala has to be pre-booked, otherwise you might end up sleeping in your tent as there is no any nearby settlement.

After crossing the suspension bridge of Soti Khola, we then reach into the village which is famous for famed Honey Hunters.

Day 05: Sati Khola to Labu Besi (900m)
Today, we start trekking in the morning. And after crossing the bridge, the trek climbs up onto a ridge above the huge rapids of Budhi Gandaki and reaches to Khorsaani. Then, the trail, gets a bit precarious as it passes over a big rock and crosses a stream. The rocky trail then goes up and down through large stand of nettles, passes tropical waterfalls and again backs down to the bank of Budhi Gandaki. The trek goes up again on a steep rocky trail and down then up around to the Gurung village of Labu Besi and rests overnight.

Day 06: Labu Besi to Jagat (1250m)
From Labu Besi, we move onwards today. And we follow the trail gradually uphill to Jagat. We reach at Jagat via Doban. We stay at Jagat overnight.

Day 07: Jagat to Ngyak (1950m)
The day begins by following the river bank again for the first hour up to Ghata Khola. We then cross to the eastern bank before ascending to Philim, one of the few large settlements on this route and home to the Manaslu Conservation Area Project office. From here you can view Mt. Lapuchun (5,950m). Overnight, we will stay at Guest House.

Day 08: Ngyak to Ghap (2050m)
The trek takes us through a heavily forested area in a narrow valley until we reach the little settlement of Dang.

Day 09: Ghap to Lho (3148m)
Today we trek from Ghap to lho village (3020m). It is the distance of about 6 to 7 hours normal walk. Slowly and gradually we would be gaining altitude and with the increase in altitude, we enter into alpine territory and accordingly we would have increasing mountain views. On the way to Manrung, we would find more number of Mani walls and three more crossing of the Budi Gandaki. Finally we will reach at Lho where we will stay overnight.

Day 10: Lho to Samagaon (3517m)
Today, we will be resuming the trek with a steep descent and a crossing of yet another rock-strewn torrent called Thusang Khola. You will realize that Manaslu and Himalchuli dominate the entire landscape. Then on, across the glacier-fed Numla Khola, the valley drops away to a moraine while we follow the ancient trans-Himalayan trail now a just very few kilometers from Tibet. We then reach at Samagaon. Samagaon (3390m) is one of the classic Lama settlements in the region with monatery and mani walls and all things totally Tibetan.

Day 11: Samagaon to Samdo (3738m)

Day 12: Samdo to Dharmashala (4480m)
Today’s walk starts easily enough. We cross Budhi Gandaki for a final time and pause at the old stone wall of mani inscriptions bidding us well for progress over the pass. The trail gradually rises through juniper and tundra with a viewpoint overlooking the Larkya La Glacier. Further climb will bring us to memorably Spartan Larkya Rest House. We now reach at Dharmashala (4460m) for our overnight stay.

Day 13: Acclimatization day
Today, we will have full-day acclimatization at Dharmashala. We can explore the surrounding areas of Dharmashala today and stay here tonight.

Day 14: Dharmasala to Bhimtang (3890m) the day of Larky La Pass (5113m)
An early morning start is needed for what is to be a particularly tough and extended day. We start at approx. 4 am to avoid gale force wind which usually gains in strength after mid-day at the pass. After a long gradual climb alongside a moraine, we make a short descent to a glacial lake and reach the head of the moraine (4700m) which we cross to climb to the ridge top. Four frozen lakes lie below and then it is up to the crest of the Larkya La (5100m). The reward for these difficult trekking conditions is brilliant westerly views of Himlung Himal, Kangurru and Annapurna II as well as the looming omnipresence of Manaslu. Well, the descent is hardly any easier; we drop around 650m in less than an hour. Our trail then levels off onto yak pastures before finally reaching Bimtang (3590m), a collection of typical summer kharkas.

Day 15: Bhimtang to Tilje (3010m)
Now, the toughest days on the trail are behind us. We descend through meadows and through pine and rhododendron forest to reach Hampuk and then after dropping further following the course of the Dudh Khola we arrive at Karche and then onto the village of Gho. Keeping the west bank of the river, the afternoon is one of the gradual descents to the Gurung Settlement of Tilije which has a certain notoriety for apply brandy. We stay overnight in Tilije (2300m) at local lodge.

Day 16: Tilje to Tal (1725m)
Trek goes along the Dudh Khola, a tributary of the Marsyangdi River, before arriving at the confluence in Dharapani. From here, we will continue on to Tal where the river appears as a lake. We will stay at Tal tonight.

Today the trail runs gently downstream of the river passing the village of Syange where we stay overnight.
