FAQs

  • Q1. How difficult is Manaslu Trek?

    Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of the most challenging treks in the Himalayas because of the trodden trekking route and remoteness of the region. The terrain is difficult and steep. You have to be physically fit and possess some sort of previous trekking experience. This trek is not for beginner trekkers.

     

  • Our Manaslu Circuit Trek itinerary is 17 days long, including arrival and departure. You can also tailor-make the itinerary as per your requirements and time availability.

     

  • The most unique thing about Manaslu Circuit Trekking is that the route does not follow a similar path even while descending. This means every day will bring new experiences and views. The trail is less crowded than Everest and Annapurna region. The views and the cultural heritage in the Manaslu region are unspoiled, and very few people traverse it every year because of all the challenges. 

     

  • No, you can not do Manaslu Circuit Trek solo. As per the rules of the Nepal government, there have to be two trekkers in the group, not including the guide/porters. Moreover, you can only get a restricted area permit with a licensed trekking agency. 

     

  • To go on Manaslu Circuit Trek, you not only have to prepare your body physically but also mentally. You can start preparing for the trek 3 to 4 weeks before the beginning of the journey. To prepare, you can exercise focusing on core strength and increasing stamina. Swimming, cycling, jogging, hiking, etc are also great ways to prepare for the Manaslu Circuit Trek. Likewise, you also have to prepare yourself to survive in bare minimum facilities and adjust to a very simple lifestyle during the trek.

    The trail is strenuous. You have to walk 6-8 hours a day on a rough, steep path. There will be nonstop ascending and descending throughout the trek.

     

  • Soti Khola is the starting point of the Manaslu Circuit Trek, which takes around 8 to 9 hours of drive to reach from Kathmandu. Likewise, Tal is the ending point of the trek, and it takes 9-10 hours of drive from Tal to reach Kathmandu.

     

  • You can get bottled water in the house, but we don't recommend buying it every time because it will cost you a lot of money and increase unwanted litter. Water in the mountains is relatively cleaner than in the city and can be used to drink. You can carry a reusable water bottle and refill it every time it gets empty. For extra safety, you can carry water purification tablets.
