Overview of 14 Days Manaslu Circuit Trekking

14 days Manaslu Circuit Trekking covers the world’s eighth-highest peaks, including Manaslu Base Camp. It depends on getting a quick glimpse at Mt. Manaslu and even the historical and heritage treasures of the Manaslu Conservation Area.

The Trekking in Manaslu is less famous than the Everest Region Treks and Annapurna Region Treks. Consequently, Trekking is among Nepal’s few new and less trafficked hiking paths. Manaslu lacks being loved and appreciated by the many visitors worldwide due to being less crowded.

If you are looking for adventure holidays in Nepal, we highly recommend the Manaslu circuit trek with a lodge/tea house along the trail for 2024 and 2025.

Similarly, the Larkya-La pass is the Manaslu circuit Trekking trail’s highest pass. It is 5160 meters above sea level. Still, you would like to go to Manaslu Base Camp, 4400 meters above sea level.

Similarly, People are trekking through the lodge/tea house these days. Carrying many tents and porters with you is unnecessary for camping trekking.

You may have a beautiful lodge and tea house with electric lights and WI-FI almost every night. Moreover, Boundless Adventure provides a sleeping bag even though you will lodge trek in Manaslu on request.

In western Nepal, the Mt. Manaslu Trek is an off-the-beaten-path trek around the Manashree Himalayan range (Mt. Manaslu (8163 m/26,781ft) ‘s peaceful and desolate Himalayas.

The adventure Manaslu Lodge trekking is among Kathmandu’s most feasible adventure sports. The attractive Budi-Gandaki, Nubri, along the Marsyangdi valley. An exposes Tibetan culture with Bon religion in the northern areas of the trail adjoining Tibet.

The Manaslu trek in the Forest Reserve features Nepal’s crowning glory; Mt. Manaslu, the peak of spirits, has a biodiversity that separates itself from other hiking paths.


Attraction during the 14 days of Manaslu Trekking

Manaslu, Nagadi Chuli, and Himalchuli are the main attractions of the Mansiri Himalayan chain. Similarly, the peaks include Himalchuli (7,893 meters), Ngadi Chuli (7,871 meters), Shringi Himal (7,187 meters), and Langpo (6,668 meters), and Saula (6,235 meters) are the major attractions.

While you are hiking in the Manaslu conservation area, because of its accessibility to Tibet, Tibetan culture and way of life significantly affect the Manaslu region in the northwest.

The Tibetan Buddhists welcome you to an isolated and hidden corner of the planet in the rural settlements of Gurung, Ghale, and Bhote.

In 1991, the Nepalese government allowed trekking in the Manaslu region, whereas most portions are restricted and require restricted permits.

Manaslu has much to offer trekkers, including majestic perspectives of the Himalayan range and elevated glacier lakes to a diversified cultural and biological ecosystem.

In the Manaslu Conservation Area, there are around 2,000 varieties of plants, 39 animals, 201 birds, three reptiles, and 11 butterflies inhabiting 11 different forest types.

Endangered animals such as snow leopard, Musk deer, Red fox, Jackal, Brown bear, Blue sheep, Himalayan Thar, Wooly hare, and Himalayan marmot are among the animals discovered inside the meadows of the Manaslu Conservation Area.

Flora and fauna are in great abundance during this season of the year. The Rhododendron forest along the path is lovely, and thus, the atmosphere is calm, offering magnificent mountain sights. April is the most significant month for the Manaslu Circuit Trek.

The temperature will be neither hot nor cold throughout autumn, usually stretching from September to November. Temperatures range from 8 to 20 degrees Celsius on average at the lower elevations of the trek. The temperature might decrease to -3 C at night in high peaks.


Accommodation during Trekking 

Tea houses serve as lodging on the Manaslu Circuit Trekking in Nepal. The accommodation here is not as modern as in the famous Annapurna and Everest regions. The tea houses are constructed across the pathway as the area has grown. They mainly provide the most necessary facilities, featuring twin beds with hardly any other furniture.

The bedrooms come with a mattress, parents, and a blanket. However, the rooms aren’t enclosed. You can also carry your sleeping bag with you to avoid catching a cold and keep it hygienic in higher latitudes, including Samdo, where the expense of a room increases. The cuisine is given daily in dining and relaxing spaces with warm heat.

Essential Information - 14 Days Manaslu Circuit Trekking

Food in Trekking

Manaslu Circuit Trek has been modified from a tented trek to a teahouse trek by establishing a simple teahouse and lodge. You won’t be camping or have an expert chef to serve your unique food; instead, you’ll have to lean on the meals available in every teahouse along the trekking trail. Most teahouses engage skilled kitchen staff.

The cuisine at the teahouse contains a broad range of meals. Yet, it cannot equate to well-known Trekking like Annapurna and Everest.

Food is less expensive in the lower areas of the trek and becomes even more costly as you continue the tour. Since there’s no refrigerated storage room for meat and raw veggies, the choice of items in the restaurant may be limited as you ascend.


Drinking water

We are local; we know every Manaslu Circuit Lodge Trekking hotel, and they also know us—similarly, one of our trekking crew at Manaslu Circuit Trekking, who had been with you.

They’ll provide fresh drinking water from the kitchen in your bottle to use the Chlorine. We prove to you Chlorine kills bacteria and is safe for drinkable water.

Of course, you can get mineral and Hot water along the trekking trail of Manaslu Circuit Lodge Trekking. If you prefer to buy warm and mineral water at Manaslu, Trekking would be your choice.


Internet Connectivity en route

Internet is available across the trekking path, although this isn’t as speedy or effective at higher elevations as at lower heights. You will have access to advanced internet between Kathmandu and Jagat.

Unfortunately, the connectivity becomes even more unstable and inconsistent whenever you start climbing in elevation. Wi-Fi is offered cheaply in the many tea houses in Samagaun, Samdo, and Lho if needed.

Furthermore, if you can acquire a data package for 3G/4G coverage, you could use mobile networks (GPRS). Yet, your internet might not work correctly, and the battery runs out quickly due to the high altitude. Therefore, we recommend you enjoy trekking rather than getting engaged on your mobile phone.


Travel Insurance for Trekking

Travel insurance is mandatory if you come to a different nation or an elevated location, such as the Manasalu region. Manasalu is a restricted and inaccessible area; transportation is minimal, and there are few health checkpoints along the trek.

The hike reaches more than 5,000 m heights. Therefore, there seems to be a risk of achieving altitude sickness. As a result of these issues, it could be hard to gain quick treatment in an unexpected accident or illness.

Therefore, you are requested to do travel insurance, which requires a daily trekking itinerary, maximum elevation, the region you are exploring, emergency contact number, and other similar information regarding your booked trekking agency.


Restricted Manaslu Trekking permits

The Government of Nepal has declared this region a restricted area to control and grow tourism.

As a result, individual backpackers cannot visit Manaslu  Circuit Lodge trekking without a well-experienced guide and a government-registered company.

According to government regulations, each group should have a minimum of 2 climbers and a trekking guide. Additionally, Boundless Adventure trekking agent can provide you from Kathmandu.

Which has the required authorization for the Manaslu Circuit trekking permits. Similarly, you can’t get tickets from freelance guides and individual clients. It is necessary to have three different types of licenses with you.

Special Restricted Area Permit for Manaslu (RAP)
Manaslu Conservation Area Permit (MCAP)
Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP)


Packing list for Trekking

The trek begins to climb up to nearly 710 m at quite a level of almost 5210 m. The weather, elevation, and air supply will shift as the altitude rises.

You may make your expedition enjoyable and require essential hiking equipment and gear. You could become sick during your walk. Without warm clothes, you need to have down Jackets and sleeping bags with you, preventing you from having a wonderful and pleasurable time.

If you feel uncomfortable carrying it, you can rent or repurchase trekking equipment in Nepal.

Manaslu Lodge trek

We had a significant conversation with Mr. Dambar of Boundless Adventure through an email. He was Superman and had long experience as a trekking guide around Manaslu, Upper Mustang, and the Everest region. Yes, it is why we trust him.

The Manaslu Trek was a fantastic adventure that I will never forget. The scenery is spectacular, with views of snow-capped mountains, terraced fields, and traditional local Nepali villages at Arughat, Jagat, Samdo, and Samagaun. The pass was challenging but also very satisfying, with the highlight being the crossing of the Larkya-La pass. Our guides, Bharat and Porters, Mr. Rohan and Shyam, were beneficial and honest, and the tea houses along the way were not wrong.

I highly recommend Manaslu Trek to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience in Nepal with Boundless Adventure and their service at the end. Thank you, Mr. Dambar, it was much better service than we expected!” – Anna, Germany.

Boundless Adventure (Mr. Dambar) did an excellent job from start to end, ensuring we had a great experience of the foothill journey in the Manaslu circuit region of Nepal. Our guide, Mr. Bharat, and his dedicated crew were professional.

We returned what we paid for, ensuring a 100% trekking success. Nepal’s Boundless Adventure company is professional, experienced, trustworthy, and excellent. No question, they will be my next holiday organizer in Nepal. We fully recommend the company for the adventure trip to the Himalayas, including Mt. Manaslu circuit trekking in the lodge.
