13 Days Manaslu Circuit Trek with NEST Adventure (a local travel company)

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
What to Expect
# 1. It is surrounded by snowcap mountains towering at above 8,000m. Not to mention the above 5,000m pass crossing! Very few places on this earth will have these combinations!

# 2. It is a remote and off-the-beaten-path compared to the other well-known teahouse treks in Nepal. Manaslu trek gained popularity since tea houses were built in 2010. Prior to that, you had to camp.

#3. It is not as crowded as other popular trails in Nepal.Less than 8,000 tourist visits Manaslu every year while Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek has over 30,000 visitors annually.

# 4. It is relatively cheaper than EBC. You don't have to spend more than $320 alone on a flight ticket to Lukla.

# 5. It is rich in culture. The Tibetan-origin Nepalese live here and practice their own ancient form of dialect, culture and religion.

# 6. Manaslu trek offers more side-trips than any other trail. You can spend more than 3 weeks and venture into different places such as, Manaslu Base Camp, Pungeen Gomba, Tibetian border, Birendra lake.

# 7. Because it follows a circuit trail, every day is a new route as you make a loop in this trek.

# 8. Because it is generally safer. There is a lower chance of altitude sickness due to the long days of reaching high elevation and side trips.

# 9. Part of "The Great Himalayan Trail". Manaslu is one of the major parts of "The Great Himalaya Trail".  

# 10. It is an adventure.  In 2003, the Manaslu peak had 240 successful ascents and 52 fatalities, making it the 4th most dangerous 8000m+ peak (after Annapurna, Nanga Parbat, and K2).
