About the Trek

Among the various famous trekking options, Manaslu Circuit Trek is the vigorous trek in the vicinity of Mt. Manaslu – the eighth highest mountain in the world with an altitude of 8,163m. The Manaslu Circuit Trek of 144 km skirts the Manaslu massif over the pass down to Mt. Annapurna. The trek starts at Soti Khola, the gateway to Buri Gandaki Valley where a deep long river gorge- Buri Gandaki exists. There are few tea houses along the trail which are of basic standards.

Along the Manaslu Circuit Trek, you will be passing through the Manaslu Conservation Area which is home to 11 types of forest and prime habitat for the snow leopard, Himalayan Thar, and Blue Sheep. Also at Samagaon, you can go on an excursion to Manaslu Base Camp. One of the challenging sections comes up while crossing Larkya La Pass at 5160m.

Along the Manaslu Circuit Trek, spectacular views of Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Annapurna, and Mt. Himalchuli await you. You will have plenty of time to interact with the local people who are called Nupris and visit Buddhist gompas such as Shringi Gompa, Mu, and Rachen. The trail connects the Annapurna circuit at Dharapani and drops down to Besisahar with the option of continuing trekking to the Annapurna region in one’s own desire.

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is an absolutely confirmed option if you would like to choose the less crowded trailhead nearest to the Kathmandu valley; still adventurous packed.

Testimonials

I had the privilege of meeting Sujan in 2013 along the Annapurna circuit. When you meet someone incredible, it’s impossible to forget them. Despite just meeting him randomly along the trail, he made a very positive impression on my wife and me, who think fondly of our conversations and interactions. He has a wealth of wisdom and experience, not just in the mountains but in interacting with people all over. He’s got an unquenchable heart for people and his country, which he shares well with anyone in his company. When we do go back, he will be one of those people we must meet again. It’s not a surprise that he has started a reputed guiding organization. It’s about time! I would highly recommend Sujan and would even provide a back guarantee for anyone who does not have a stellar experience with him.
