Manaslu Circuit Trek 11 Days

The Manaslu circuit trek is a 2 weeks long tea house mode trek around the mount Manaslu scaling 8163m above sea level. You will get the highest elevation gain of 5105m at the Larke Pass. Since this is also one of the restricted regions you will need a group of at least two people to obtain the trekking permit. The 177 Km long trail follows an ancient salt trading route along the Budhi Gandaki river. On this trek, you will see 10 peaks over 6500m and a few over 7000m including the eighteenth-highest Himalchuli with an elevation of 7,893m. The major attractions of the area are high glacial lakes, Gurung villages, and rich biodiversity.

Manaslu circuit trek starts by taking a jeep drive to Machha Khola in Gorka district. From there the trail leads through the villages inhabited mostly by the Gurung communities. Through the misty alpine meadows accompanied by several river streams, you will cross the Larke Pass and descend to Bhimtang in the Marsyangdi valley. From Bhimtang you will follow an easy trekking trail to Dharmashala where you will catch a jeep drive back to Kathmandu.

Duration: 11 days 11 nights
Cost: USD 1350 per person
