This morning at 5:30 am your guide will pick you up from your hotel for our trip to Soti Khola. We then head off an 8-hour road trip to Soti Khola. The first four hours we drive on sealed roads, but after reaching Dhading Bensi (1050m) the road is unsealed and much rougher as it heads to Arughat and Soti Khola, the district headquarters of Dhading district.

After breakfast this morning we hit the trail and trek through the woods heading upriver along the banks of the Budhi Gandaki River before having to descend to the riverbed. We then follow a trail across the mountains with numerous views down to the river far below.

This morning on the trail we head to and cross the Machha Khola River and then pass Khorlabesi (920m) before coming to Tatopani, a famous place where people visit for its hot springs. We then pass through a forested area as we make our way to the Dovan Khola (river) and then enter the Budhi Gandaki Valley. Trekking at these higher altitudes you will notice a change in the vegetation right up until we arrive at Jagat Village.

This morning the trail leads us through the valley to Sirdibas Village from where we have a impressive view of Shringi Himal. After we cross the suspension bridge we have a steep ascent to Philim, with many waterfalls cascading down on both sides of the valley. The next villages we come to are Ekle Bhatti and then Pewa Village. We continue along this trail until we emerge from the valley and arrive at Deng Village.

Today is a physical workout as we initially have a steep ascent before heading back down to the Budi Gandaki River. The trail then passes through the valley and several small settlements along the way. As we get nearer to Namrung Village we will see many Mani stones (stones with carved with Tibetan mantras) a clue that we are getting deeper into Tibetan territory. This afternoon we will take a short detour to Prok village (2 hour round trip) and then head back to Namrung.

You will be forgiven if you feel that we have stepped back in time as we walk between the Mani stone walls of Lho Village where little has changed over time. From Lho we have a view of the snow-covered peak of Ngadi Chuli (7871m aka Peak 29). We will also head off on a short detour to the Pungen Glacier for a confronting view of Mt. Manaslu.

This morning we cross the yak and cattle pastures before heading to the valley below, while having some grand views of the surrounding peaks, particularly Manaslu along the trail. We continue on this trail until we come to the out-of-the-way Tibetan refugee village of Samdo, situated very close to the Nepal/Tibetan border. The afternoon is free for you to roam around the village and adjacent hillsides.

On the trail today we cross a wooden bridge over the Budi Gandaki and have a gentle ascent until we come to Dharamsala with its green fields, surrounding mountains, and Larkya Glacier. From our accommodation tonight we will have fantastic mountain views.

The trail today brings us to the highest point on the Manaslu Circuit Trek, Larkya La Pass (5106m). From here you can see Larkya Peak, Mt. Manaslu, Ratna Chuli, Cheo Himal and many other snow-covered Himalayan mountains. The trail from the pass descends quite rapidly and passes a small iced-over lake as we trek along rocky terrain. It can also be quite cold at this altitude, so be prepared to don another layer of clothing. We eventually arrive at Bhimthang.

Today is our last trekking day. The trail is downhill and across a large pasture before crossing the suspension bridge over the Dudh Khola. We then follow the trail through rhododendron and oak forests. In springtime the rhododendron forest is radiant with white, pink and red flowers. We then follow the trail for about 6 to 7 hours before until we come to Dharapani in the Annapurna region. At this point the trail crosses the Annapurna trail and if you wish you can extend your trek to include the Annapurna trek. We finally arrive at Dharapani.

This morning we head off on a long road trip to Kathmandu. By public bus, it usually takes around 8-9 hours. If we choose to take a jeep it will shorten the trip to 6 to 7 hours. The drive to Kathmandu takes you through lush green hills, past terraced farmlands and on the way you will have some impressive mountain views. On arrival at Kathmandu, we will take you to your hotels in Thamel .

Meals during the trek

In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food in the mountainous regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Physical fitness

Some days can be challenging where you often have to walk 6-8 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

Best season to travel

 The Manaslu Circuit Trek is usually done in autumn (Sept. to November) and spring (March to May)  when you are much more likely to get to have crystal clear views of the mountains and can also enjoy the lush vegetation in the lower regions of the trail - particularly during spring..

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

In the past Aarughat used to be the starting point of the trek but nowadays, due to better road conditions we can travel by bus direct to the Soti Khola.

Do Manaslu Trekking

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money

It was a very beautiful trek regardless of how far you get. Unfortunately, we had too much snow for some couple of days. But after that we had better weather afterward. The scenery was mind blowing. It's awesome seeing the change in culture as you get closer to the Tibetan border.

Great Trek

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money

Great experience. If you're don’t mind somewhat basic lodging conditions, you'll not be disappointed. Landscapes are so dramatics, with beautiful little villages and less trekkers. Do it before it becomes too popular!
