Trip Overview

Deluxe Manaslu Circuit trek-18 days

What is the Deluxe Manaslu Circuit trek and what makes it Deluxe?

Mount Manaslu is the 8th highest mountain in the world. Trekking and crossing Larke La pass (5106m) to enter the route of the Annapurna circuit is most amazing trekking route in the Manaslu conservation area project. The Manaslu circuit is a remote and moderately challenging trekking region that is controlled and regulated under the restricted trekking trail and requires a special trekking permit.

The deluxe Manaslu circuit trek organized by NETTA starts with an overland jeep drive to Sotikhola-Arughat in the Gorkha district, which takes roughly 9–10 hours of driving. Our Manaslu trek requires us to enter our special trekking permit to enter. The lodge accommodation on this route is more like a simple guest house, or locally known as a homestay. However, we select the best available lodges or homestays to make this trek a deluxe Manaslu trek by ensuring the best available services.

We continue our trek over the high pass at Larkey La Pass on this trek and meet the famous route of the Annapurna round trek and end our trek at Besisahar. Since there are no road connections on this route, we take a local jeep from Dharapani to Besisahar and Kathmandu. One of the best and most interesting aspects of this trek is that you will begin and end the trek in different locations without repeating any days in the same camp or trail.That’s why this trek has the highest value among the trekkers. Besides this, the Manaslu trekking trail has fewer trekkers than other popular trekking trails like Annapurna or Everest because of its remoteness, special permit system, and free individual backpacker trekkers are restricted on this trail.

Why should you book a Deluxe Manaslu Circuit Trek with us?

There are four core reasons to join your manaslu trek with us.

  1. The best value for money trekking package due to the highest level of service.
  2. The best itinerary for a safe and comfortable trek
  3. The best value for money is found in the trek's accommodations.
  4. Enjoy the best trekking experience in Nepal with more than 15 years of expert guide and porter experience.

Is this trekking for me? How difficult is the Deluxe Manaslu circuit trek?

Geographically, this trek is moderate to difficult; however, trekkers with some walking, alpine route, or other hiking experience can complete this trek. The highest point on this trek is Larke La Pass (5106m). The daily walking hours are 6-7 hours depending on the altitude level. If you are sound in fitness and ready to walk 6-7 hours of moderate trekking a day, you can do this trek and we would like to welcome you to this grand trek.

The best season for the Deluxe Manaslu trek:

Like other trekking areas, this trekking trail offers great views in some of the best trekking months, like mid-September to mid-December in the fall season. In spring, we recommend March to May. The best photography months are mid-October to early December and April-May.
