Trip Overview

As the name suggests, this little-known and relatively new trek will take you to remote and breathtaking areas around the world's eighth highest mountain, Manaslu. If you are looking for a unique trek in the Himalayas without a mass of tourists, then the Manaslu circuit is the right one for you.

The highlight of this trek for many is the authentic Tibetan village of Sama, the glacial Lake Birendra, and the lush rhododendron forest. On the way, we will have several raised bridges over the river Buri Gandaki, which we will have to cross. This trek is exceptional not only for its enchanting views but also for its Tibetan culture.

The trek will take you to the vicinity of the Tibetan border, where Larke Bazar used to be, an ie. a shopping center with salt. Note: Minimum number of participants is 2 people. This is a physically demanding trip, which is designed for a group of at least 2 people on a selected date.

The price is for two paying persons in the lowest season when the room is occupied by 2 persons. If you are interested, we provide an English-speaking guide and adjust the route according to the client's needs. If you want a private bathroom in the place of accommodation, add 10 - 25 USD / day to the price.
