Manaslu Circuit Trek

Typically 16 - 21 Day Trek

The trek is centered around Mt. Manaslu, the world’s eighth-highest mountain at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft.). Like the Everest and Annapurna Circuit, the Manaslu Circuit also offers humbling Himalayan scenery, high mountain passes, rich biodiversity, and rewarding journeys to get there. This awe-inspiring natural beauty is only accentuated by the rich culture and traditions that exist there. The Manaslu Trek’s serenity and cultural richness provide an authentic experience unlike anywhere else, and it can only be tapped into with the help of our locals who were shaped by the very area they are guiding.
