Manaslu Around Trek

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
Mt. Manaslu is located in Nepal's Gorkha District and rises to 8,163 meters. Manaslu lies just east of the famed Annapurna Region and shares a border with its northern neighbor, Tibet. Opened to trekkers recently, Manaslu's unsurpassed beauty and rich blend of Tibetan and Nepali cultures offer the dedicated trekker a genuine adventure. This is a difficult trek that requires us to be very isolated from any sort of modern facilities. The trek reaches high elevations and has the opportunity to view rocky and mountainous landscapes and aqua blue-green glacier lakes. You will understand why this area has always been a favorite mountaineer’s playground.

Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Our trip package includes complete requirement during trek:
  • It is fully organized that includes accommodation, all meals in trekking, all necessary logistic support, guide and porters, trekking permits and entrance fee, etc. There is not any hidden charge.
  • The trip itinerary is crafted by expertise team. It includes plenty of time to insure your leisure and taking you to your desired destination. We are very much flexible where it is necessary. Please kindly inform us if you need any amendment.
  • A typical day revolves around the Nepal sunrise and sunset, rather than any Western time schedule. The day starts with an early wakeup call. You then pack up your gear and enjoy a rousing breakfast before starting your morning’s walk. The sirdar will already be organized and have assigned loads to porters and your group will then set off on the trail at a leisurely pace, enjoying the view and stopping to take photographs. After 2-3 hours walk you stop for lunch. This lasts for about 90 minutes which gives you time to relax, or explore the local village. The afternoon’s walk is usually shorter and we arrive at the campsite or tea-house in plenty of time to relax and savor the surroundings. Later in the evening dinner is served, giving you an opportunity to sample the delicious food, talk over the day’s events, and look forward to another special day on the trails of Nepal.
  • We recommend that all clients consult their doctor to discuss the health issues associated with their trek. We also recommend that clients bring their own personal first aid kit to supplement the comprehensive
  • first aid kit carried by the Trek Leader.
  • Please ensure that you allow at least 1 month to complete a course of vaccinations. Whilst your personal
  • doctor will be the final authority, we recommend the following
  • Poliomyelitis
  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus
  • Rabies
  • Meningococcal
  • Immunoglobulin (for Hepatitis A)
  • Nepal is listed as a country for which malaria prophylaxis is advised. We will not be visiting any malarial areas on the treks, however you may wish to consult your doctor about the need to take malaria pills. Trekkers who plan to do rafting and jungle excursions are advised to take the necessary medication to protect against malaria.
  • Many treks in Nepal can take you quite rapidly to high altitudes, so you need to give your body time to acclimatize. If you ascend faster than your body can acclimatize you will start to develop symptoms of Acute
  • Mountain Sickness (AMS). A headache being the most common symptom, others are nausea, vomiting, fatigue, loss of appetite, dizziness and sleep disturbances.
  • The best way to acclimatize is to ascend slowly and gradually. The common wisdom is that you should take 2-3 days to reach 3000m – If flying in to above this height remember to take extra acclimatization days
  • for example flying into Lukla). Once above 3000m, you should sleep no more than around 300m above your last nights altitude, and take a rest day every 3 days (or 1000m). At times it can be difficult to stick exactly to this schedule, as villages aren't always conveniently placed for acclimatizing, so you should think of the 300m as an average. During the day it is okay to trek higher as long as you descend to sleep.
  • Remember the mountaineer’s saying "Climb High, Sleep Low". If at any time you get symptoms of AMS you should not climb higher until they are gone. If they persist then you should descend to below the height where they first started. Only start to climb again when they have gone.
  • All of our itineraries allow for a proper acclimatisation schedule, and of course on our private departures you have the freedom to go slower if you are finding it tough - everyone acclimatises at a different rate. Please also consider your guide and porters and watch for signs of AMS in them. They are not immune to AMS.
  • You will find a graph below detailing the acclimatisation schedule. It shows the ideal acclimatisation schedule against suggested itinerary.
  • We always aim to get as close to the ideal as possible taking account of such things as available accommodation and camping spots with water etc.
  • We INSIST that an appropriate insurance policy is taken out which covers travel in isolated and mountainous areas, and which also includes helicopter rescue. We recommend that you consult a reputable insurance agent or insurance specialist.
