The Manaslu Circuit trek offers the amazing ethnic and scenic diversity, still relatively un-trekked; the lush rice paddies and traditional villages of Nepal's 'Middle Hills'. This Manaslu trek lead us to high Himalayan passes, purely Tibetan villages, spectacular snow-peak panoramas and wonderful campsites. The trekking around Manaslu has long been a restricted area due to the close proximity of the Tibetan border and is now open, but only for organized groups.  The trek is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. The inhabitants of the upper Buri Gandaki, a region known as Nupri ('the western mountains'), are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress and customs are almost exclusively Tibetan. Gurung, Magar, Chhetri and Tamang are the other inhabitants living on this trekking region.  From the top of this pass you are rewarded with a stunning panorama looking towards Himlung Himal (7,126m/23,379ft), Manaslu & the Annapurna peaks, with the peaks of Ganesh Himal (7,406m/24,298ft) rounding off the east. The descent passes is through the alpine meadows of Bimtang to join the renowned Annapurna Circuit at Thonje. Tillman first surveyed this region in 1950 on his reconnaissance of Annapurna.

Qualification: Manaslu Larkya La trek is arduous trek and require a good experience of trekking and a good physical condition.

Because these hikes take you on the remote Himalayan region, it is very essential that you are accompanied with the very experienced and qualified leader for the safe and successful trip. We Advanced Adventure employee the local trek guide and stuff who are trained and qualified on the trip we worked on. Our guides are trained and licensed from Nepal Gov. certify from Nepal Tourism Board.

At every trip, there would be our one Trek leader and one assistance leader on each additional 2 peoples on the trek- this arrangement would ensure that even if any of our guide/ assistance guides get sick or if any travelers gets sick and need to be back or delay the days of walking, it would still works smoothly and there would not be any impact on our original trek plan. Also each two trekker would have one Sherpa helper for carrying your trekking bags.

Our entire accommodation is at twin share unless stated but single supplement accommodation is also available on personal request at the additional cost of US$- 300.  

In Kathmandu, only breakfast and dinner is included on the offered trip itinerary but while in trek full board of meals is included (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, and Tea- Coffee). We provide you fresh and hygienic food from the local tea- house/ Mt. Lodge from en route. Breakfast and Dinner is provided from the same tea- house/ guesthouse we would overnight but Lunch would be en route in day walking in between.

Foods provided are depends on the availability of the Mt. lodges we would be staying but in general, you can have a good choice of food, eg. Nepalese foods (Dal Bhat), Tibetan fried bread, various soups, Momo’s (Steamed Dumplings), potatoes, pastas and even a version of pizza!  So, over all you have a different choice of food on trek.


We do have two best seasons to attempt this trek to Manaslu Circuit Trek As this is your trip of lifetime experience, we do always suggest you to come at the right time of the year as far as possible for the great trip with great weather and excellent visibility.

SPRING- (March, April, May) - Best warmest time to trek. Best weather, excellent visibility, Rhododendron flowers in bloom- excellent trails and clear skies. Good & pleasant temperature. Best time for trekking to Everest Base Camp.

AUTUMN- (September, October and November) - Best weather conditions, excellent visibility, pleasant temperature. Best season for trekking to Everest Base Camp.

WINTER MONTHS- (December, January and February) is also good, but it’s obviously colder. You have to be prepared for this. But trekking is very much doable by these seasons as well. It required walking in a fresh snow from 3500m and above most of time. It could often snow every day so preparation of best warm clothing is must.

SUMMER/ MONSOON (End of June, July & August)- It often rain, weather condition and visibility can be a poor for regularly for several days, and trekking could be very wet. We usually do not recommend this season for trek but if you would like to take a change, you could come to this trek at this time and if you are lucky, you could still have a good trip with excellent weather and visibility, but no guarantee at all!


The weather conditions in the mountains are notoriously difficult to predict. During the day it can be nice and warm and the nights are generally always cooler.

The weather you will experience on this Trek is extreme and rather unpredictable so it is best to be prepared for all eventualities. Temperature during the trek to Manaslu Circuit, trekking up to 3500m, the expected temperature during a day is from 5 to 15 Degrees Celsius during Spring Months and 4 to 10 Degrees Celsius during the Autumn Months. The nights can fall into 0 to -2.  Temperature above 4500m, the expected temperature during the day is from 0 to 4 Degrees Celsius at Spring Months and 0 to -2 Degrees Celsius at Autumn Months. The night temperature can fall into 0 to minus 8 to 10 Degrees Celsius at Spring Months, and temperature can fall into 0 to minus 8 to 12 Degrees Celsius at Autumn Months.

However, above given chats of temperature are the expected but temperature can be different as per the everyday weather conditions of the mountain so it is unpredictable. Expect the unexpected!


There is no way to prepare for altitude other than to spend time at altitude. Being in very good physical condition will help ameliorate some of the exhaustion that people often feel, but it will not prevent altitude caused medical problems such as Acute Mountain Sickness.

This itinerary was designed with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) in mind and to ensure a comfortable and safe adventure trek in the Himalayas. Staying well hydrated and getting plenty of rest may help.  The maximum elevation of this trek will be reached at Larka-la Pass at 5140 m above sea level. However, since it takes at least 10 days to reach this altitude, it is not considered a high-risk zone for AMS. We have specially designed our trek itinerary with keeping maximum acclimatization days into the itinerary to make you acclimatize but ultimately your response at altitude is due to genetic factors.

Trekking above from 4000m, walking will be more difficult because of the drop in oxygen levels and the humidity. At these heights there is around 30%- 40% less oxygen than at sea level, so your body needs time to adapt these conditions and it is absolutely essential to have sufficient time for acclimatization. That’s why; in this given itinerary all of these factors have been taken into consideration while design this itinerary to minimize the risk of AMS.



Nepal Visa is the easiest visa to obtain; you may buy your Nepal Visa at your nearest Nepalese Embassy/ Consulate or Mission offices abroad or buy this upon on arrival to Kathmandu international airport as per your convenient.

You should have to have 2 passport size photographs, Visa fees should be paid in USD cash & passport must be valid at least for 6 months at the starting of the trip.

Tourist Visa Fees:

Multiple entry                           15 Days                  - US$ 25 or equivalent convertible currency

Multiple entry                           30 Days                  - US$ 40 or equivalent convertible currency

Multiple entry                           90 Days                  - US$ 100 or equivalent convertible currency

This trip requires walking on altitude above 4000m – 5545m from sea level for the duration of 5 to 6 days. So it is very essential that you should be preparing for this trek before reaching to join us at our trek date at Kathmandu. The best preparation you can do is to hike, even if it is under gym conditions. Running will help your stamina but does not fully prepare your muscles for a strenuous hike.  

Go for walks. It is advisable to go for frequent walks, which should include some uphill and downhill sections if possible in your surroundings. Take your daypack with you with at least a weight of three kilograms or more. This will simulate the conditions you will encounter while on your trekking with us.  Join a gymnasium. Ask your gym instructor to work out a fitness program that consists of progressive resistance exercises. An experienced instructor will be able to tailor a safe exercise regime based on your age, condition and strength. Work with a schedule those progresses to higher resistance or weights as you develop your fitness.


Please do visit your medical doctor; consult him before heading to such altitude trekking destination.  Those who have a problem of heart, lung, respiratory or blood should talk with their medical doctor and take his reference and report us before planning this trip with us.
