Situated in Manaslu region, Manaslu Circuit Trek offers you the opportunity to explore the Mt. Manaslu (8,163m) and its vicinity. The trail gives the pleasure of experiencing the wildlife and lush vegetation with a glorious view of snow-capped mountains in the Mansiri Himalayan ranges. Larkya La Pass at (5,160m) and hot spring area at Tatopani are the major attractions of this trek. Getting familiar with the mixed ethnic culture and walking past the main walls carved with Buddhist mantra makes the journey thoroughly entertaining.  

Upon your arrival in Kathmandu, you will head to your hotel. After obtaining the Manaslu Permit on the second day, you are ready for the trek ahead. You will start your drive from Kathmandu via Prithvi Highway along with green hills and valleys. Crossing Dhading Bensi, you continue your drive through the rusty road towards Arughat Bazaar from where our real trekking begins. Walking past the forests of pine and bamboo, you reach Soti Khola. Alongside the bank of Budhi Gandaki River, you start your journey towards Machha Khola via the Gurung village of Lapubesi. The trail passes through Jagat crossing Yaru Khola and proceeds towards Namrung via Deng. Along the way, you cross several suspension bridges and beautiful waterfalls. Crossing Sama Gaon, you now reach Manaslu Base Camp from where you get a panoramic view of surroundings and Himalayas. You can also explore the glorious monasteries like Pung Gyen Gompa which bear strong influence from the Tibetan-Buddhist culture.  On the way to Bimthang, you cross several settlements via Larkya La Pass at 5160m which is the highest point of this trek. From the top of Larkya La Pass, you get a breathtaking view of Ganesh Himal (7,422m), Manaslu (8,156m), Himlung (7,126m), Annapurna II (7,937m), and many other snow-capped mountains. Finally, you descend back to Syange via Tal from where you drive back to the capital. March to May and September to November are the best time for this trek.
