Manaslu Circuit Trek permit
Firstly, you will need your travel visa upon arrival in Kathmandu. There are two other Manaslu Trek permits, i.e. Manaslu conservation area access and the Manaslu restriction area permit.
Manaslu restricted area permit: Nepal government has closed a few areas of Nepal as restricted trekking regions, and you shall need a special Manaslu Trekking permit to reach here. This special permit is only issued after you book your Manaslu Trek Package with a travel agency like MyEveryTrek and hire a licensed guide. You must submit your passports, visa, photos, Manaslu circuit trek itinerary, and insurance to the immigration department in Kathmandu to get this permit.
This is not just about the paper. While you travel to the restricted region, you cannot go for Manaslu Trek solo. You must be in a group of at least two people, accompanied by a guide for your safety. Also, you need to follow other rules without impacting the local culture.
Manaslu Trekking Permit Cost
- September to November: USD 100 per person for the first seven days and an additional USD 15 per person per day from the eighth day onwards.
- December to August: USD 75 per person for the first seven days and an additional USD 10 per person per day from the eighth day onwards.
Manaslu conservation area permit can either be issued in Kathmandu or while you are on the trek, and this Manaslu Trek Permit costs $30.
Annapurna Conservation area permit can also be issued in Kathmandu or while you are on the, and this Maanslu Permit costs $30.
Is Manaslu Trek difficult?
Let’s answer how difficult Manaslu Trek is.
Yes, the Manaslu circuit trek is among the most challenging treks in Nepal. As you reach above 5000m in sea level, the Manaslu Circuit trek difficulty is graded as “Moderate to difficult” by the experts of Nepal. It would be best to have excellent physical health and technical climbing skills while the pass was covered in snow.
Manaslu Trek Distance: The total distance of the Manaslu circuit trek is about 180 km/160 meters. This is among those treks in Nepal where you must cover the longest distance daily. You will have to walk more than 20 km on some days. Walking 6 to 8 hours daily for about a month isn’t a piece of cake.
Manaslu Trek Height: The highest point of the Manaslu circuit trek is the Larka la pass. Almost all Manaslu Circuit Trek route lies above 40000 meters, adding to Manaslu’s difficulty. As you walk at this altitude, the pressure in the air is low, and you suffer greatly from the lack of oxygen. If we develop symptoms such as headaches, vomiting, and shortness of breath, the guide takes us to a lower altitude. In an emergency, helicopter evacuation will be arranged per your insurance policy.
Remoteness: The challenging landscape and distinct culture of Manaslu makes it one of Nepal’s remotest trekking regions, hence increasing its difficulty. You might not find luxurious hotels and restaurants while on a trek. Be ready to survive with a minimum and carry everything you need for 14 days of Manaslu Larkya La Pass in your bag.
Tackling the Difficulty
Both physical and mental preparation before the trek is essential to overcome the Manaslu Trek difficulty. If you have any history of heart, lung, and mental disease, the first thing to do is consult your doctor. After medical permission, you can prepare your body with some physical exercises. Along with Jogging and running, we recommend cardiovascular activities like swimming and cycling. Another great way to organise your body is by practising high-altitude trekking around your home. Getting Travel Insurance covering high-altitude trek rescue is the most important thing you can do before the Nepal trek.
While trekking, the right gear and comfortable clothes are the keys. Also, you need to avoid altitude sickness with enough sleep, a slower walk, and a hydrated body. Avoid alcoholic products during the trek, carry high-energy foods like chocolates, and drink lots of water.
Manaslu Trek is the best time.
Read the full article for the Best season to Visit Nepal here.
Manaslu in Spring :
The rays of the sun increase, making it quite hot at midday. The lower region is full of lush flora and fauna, while the flowers begin to bloom in mid-March. There might be occasional rainfall, but the ambience is magical, making it the best time for Manaslu Trek.
Manaslu in Summer :
Sometimes, heavy rain may lead to landslides and road blockage. After that, the sky is gradually evident, and the mountains look more elegant. In Summer, the day temperature can go up to 26 degrees Celsius and 10 degrees at night. Most of the farming activities are also done in the summer.
Autumn Season :
Ideally, Autumn is the best time for Manaslu Larkya La Pass Trek. The day temperature is above 15 degrees Celsius, and the night temperature falls below 5 degrees. As we move to the end of November, the night temperature drops below 0 degrees. The sky is always clear, and the views are just breathtaking. With no chances of rainfall and snowfall, Autumn is an excellent time for Manaslu Trek.
Manaslu in Winter:
These are the most challenging months for trekking. And we don’t recommend it, but it’s not legally banned. Overcoming the snow and cold might be difficult, but winter trekking isn’t impossible with the right gear and guidance. However, you might need extra pair of clothes and other trekking gear.

How long is Manaslu Circuit Trek?
Manaslu circuit trek is about a 16-day journey from Kathmandu. This includes a day for arrival and departure and another for sightseeing around Kathmandu valley. On the third and 15th days, you will drive to and from Kathmandu. The trekking days are only 11 days. The very experienced high-altitude trekkers might be able to complete the trek in about eight days. However, it would be best to stroll so that your body gets some time with the increasing altitude.
Other popular routes in Manasulu, i.e. Manaslu TSUM valley, trek a bit longer, demanding about 20 days.
How many feet is Manaslu?
Mount Manaslu’s altitude is 8,163 m (26,781 ft). It is the eighth tallest mountain in the world and rests peacefully in the Himalayas. It lies next to the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range in the Gorkha district of Nepal. Manaslu Circuit trek is conserved within the Manaslu Conservation area of Nepal.
Is Manaslu known as a killer mountain?
The calm and majestic Manaslu always looks beautiful. However, behind that beauty hides the pain of over 60 mountaineers who have lost their lives in the hope of climbing the Manaslu summit. Although regarded as an easy mountain climb due to its long ridges and valley glaciers, Manaslu has taken the lives of a lot of trekkers. This includes the lives of 53 mountaineers between 1956 to 2006. The first climb was only successful in the year 2006. Until now, 300 people have managed to reach Manaslu’s top.
Is the Manaslu Circuit trek without a guide possible?
Legally, you can trek to Manaslu without a guide. The Government of Nepal has marked some specific areas as restricted trekking regions and made it compulsory for higher guides in those trekking areas. And, since this is one of those areas, you can attempt Manaslu Circuit Trek Solo.
Having a guide makes your Manaslu Circuit trek extremely easy. Since the population of Nepal in the Himalayas are not familiar with English and the trail moves along the thick forest, having a Manaslu Trek guide makes it easy to find the way. They also help you with bookings hotels in Manaslu and during altitude sickness. The cost of hiring a guide is minimal, and the price is worth their service. MyEverestTrip can help you get a manual for Manaslu Larkya La Pass.

This is the coolest trek I ever did. Challenging but fun. Since we moved through the big difference in altitude and followed steep trails, we were happy we had good guides and porters. Our guide Krishna was very helpful in telling us how to walk and take rests, and we knew before we went that we had to be in good shape and well prepared. What I liked the most about this trek was the variations of the land shape from the forests to the rough mountain terrains. The views are stunning, and it’s interesting to witness the change in culture as you get closer to Tibet.
In addition to the fact that this is a super lovely trek, the guys from My Everest Trip are very nice guys to hang around. They are highly skilled in mountaineering and always know what they are doing. Our guide took all the safety precautions necessary to avoid altitude sickness and instructed us on what clothes to wear for each specific day and what to bring in our daypack, as the weather conditions can change very quickly. The porters were running so fast ahead with our backpacks.
The fact that everything was arranged before we started made it very easy for us not to worry about accommodation and stuff.
We will consider repeating this great adventure in another part of Nepal. We will not hesitate to ask My Everest Trip to arrange another trek.
Well done! See you again
Manaslu Larkya Pass trek er det fedeste eventyr. Mine venner og jeg blev virkelig udfordret på udholdenhed og styrke. Manegeren af bureauet (Puru) tog imod os i lufthavnen og kørte os til vores hotel og gav os en kort briefing om hvad der skulle ske de næste par dage. På dag to var der sightseeing i Kathmandu og briefing på kontoret. Puru ville selv tage med som guide på trekket.
Dag tre gik med transport til udgangspunktet for trekket og på dag 4 var vi i gang. Puru er en fin fyr og en dygtig guide. Han tager sit job meget alvorligt og har styr på alt, men har masser af overskud til at fortælle om omgivelserne og spørge ind til sine gæster. Når vi kæmpede lidt med kræfterne havde han altid en opmuntrende bemærkning eller en god historie der kunne få os til at grine lidt af os selv og hinanden, for selv om trekket er ret krævende er det også noget af det fedeste jeg nogensinde har oplevet. For det første er Himalaya og Nepal en fantastisk oplevelse, for det andet var der bare en god stemning på hele turen og det skyldtes især den måde det hele var tilrettelagt på. Puru og portere kløede på med et humør der var enormt smittende og pludselig havde vi bare gået i 11 dage og turen var slut.
Jeg vil enormt gerne på Trek med My Everest Trip igen og til andre der overvejer det samme vil jeg bare sige ”go for it” og tag kontakt med bureauet her, for de leverer bare varen! Tak fra os, Namaste og god vind fremover til alle fyrene p My Everest trip
My 5th trek with My Everest Trip
I first met the people at My Everest Trip in 2009; they deliver every time. My first trek was the classic EBC trek, but I soon developed a taste for trekking in more remote parts of Nepal.
For the Manaslu trek in 2019, I was teamed up with Ram, a great guy I did previous expeditions with, so I knew I was up for an excellent adventure, and of course, I was not disappointed as he is always a pleasure to be around. Just as I expected, this was another great trek on the long list of trekking offered by My Everest Trip.
Being a repeat guest in Nepal, I know the importance of having a reliable agent you trust entirely. The service offered by the team is flexible if I want to make a few changes, and I’m always looking forward to meeting my Nepali brothers.
I will continue to visit Nepal in the years to come and stay loyal to My Everest Trip as they are always loyal to me.
Manaslu What A Nice Trek !!!
Trekking is not just hiking; I want challenging terrain, altitude, and strenuous walks. So when the manager of My Everest Trip presented this trek to me, there was no doubt that I needed to do this.
I was accompanied by a very experienced and vital guide, who also turned out to be a lovely guy, and after a few days, we were good friends. He shared stories about Nepal; I shared stories from other parts of the world I visited.
This is what trekking is about, the solitude and the challenge of being just with the person who shows the way.
This will not be my last visit to Nepal, and I will go on My Everest Trip again.
I challenged my Buddies
I challenged my two buddies to do this trek with me. We are so competitive and always come up with something we must do.
We were well prepared when we arrived in Nepal because we had a long correspondence with Puru, who gave us good advice. Meeting him and our guide in his office for the last details was like meeting a friend. We were grouped up with two guys from Switzerland, and that was cool; always lovely to meet new friends.
For this trek, you must be in good shape. We are young, muscular guys, but we struggle occasionally. Some of the terrains we walked were rough, and sometimes we didn’t talk much, but the porters were singing! These guys are so strong, even though they look small.
This trek takes almost two weeks, and because of the big difference in altitude (710 m to 5160m), you walk through different climate zones; this adds so much to the experience of seeing how the landscape changes from the lower parts to the icy trails to Larkya La Pass. Some days we walked for only 4-5 hours, but the day we walked to Larkya La Pass was almost 9 hours, but reaching the top gave a big reward. Our guide pointed out prominent peaks like Manaslu, Annapurna II, and Kang Guru. Our guide was great; he knew so many things and had excellent knowledge about the culture, villages, and gompas. Because this is a challenging trek in the remote part, it’s not as crowded, and you feel part of the greater universe.
So three guys from Holland asked for a challenge, and we got exactly what we asked for, thanks to Puru and his professional team. On top of this, we have two new friends in Switzerland and several new friends in Nepal.
Last, I recommend My Everest Trip to everybody who wants to travel to Nepal. They have many activities, and Puru shows great integrity and insight. I understand why his clients return to him if they revisit Nepal.
Very good experience!!!
I did a trek with My Everest Trip and Puru Thapaliya, who’s a very nice guy and super helpful. I did a three weeks trek and for the Manaslu trek. the whole trek was very well organized and the guide very good…..but the scenery along the way was breathtaking!
Thanks a lot!
