This challenging 16 Day Manaslu Circuit Trekking Wellness Tour is the ultimate trek in Nepal for experienced trekkers. A trip of a lifetime!

Mount Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. Part of the Manaslu region’s trails was restored after it was damaged by the massive earthquake of 25th April 2015.

The local name for Manaslu is Kutang – Spirit Mountain. The government of Nepal only opened the Manaslu Circuit Trekking route to tourists in 1991. We start this trek by either taking a private Jeep to Soti Khola to begin the trek.

The trail begins with narrow valleys with tropical vegetation hiking along the Budi Gandaki River. Parts of the path are small with loose rocks used as steps, and several places can be potentially dangerous, especially when you encounter passing caravans of mules.

We will pass through Machi Khola, Jagat, Ghap, Lho Gaun, and Samagaon with impressive views of Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and other smaller peaks of 6,000 meters. We spend an extra night at Samagaon to acclimatize to the altitude.

You will notice the change in the landscape becomes austere as we begin to gain altitude while at the same time people who were Hindus in the lower valleys and now you see Buddhists in the higher elevations.

We cross over Larke La into the District of Manang. Once we reach Dharapani, we are on the main Annapurna Circuit trail. Dharapani is where the Manaslu Circuit trek ends; we drive back to Kathmandu in a private jeep.

Note: You will need to be pretty fit to be able to do this trek. It is tougher than the Annapurna Circuit or Everest Base camp treks. The first four to five days involve trekking in hot and humid weather, even during the winter months. The length of the trek is between 6-10 hours at the beginning of the trek. The April 2015 earthquake has loosened the hills here, and landslides have taken place both during and post-monsoon.
