    The Manaslu Trek is outright special. The trek follows an ancient salt–trading route along the steep-sided Budhi Gandaki river. Ten peaks of more than 6,500 meters (21,300 ft) in height are visible while trekking through the Manaslu region, including peaks of more than 7,000 meters (23,000 ft) high. There are a lot fewer people on the Manaslu Circuit and this sets the trek apart from its busier brother the Annapurna circuit trek.

      This area is primarily populated by two ethnic groups; Nubri and Tsum. Chhikur’s branching off the river separates these two racial territories. While Nubri was frequently visited following Nepal’s 1950 tourism opening, Tsum still retains much of its traditional culture, art, and tradition. Gurungs is the largest ethnic group in the central hills of the region. If you are traveling alone and you want to do the Manaslu Circuit, you better find a friend to join you.

Past hiking experience is a must but no technical skill is required for this trip .participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung and blood diseases should inform well plan trekking before booking the trek .we also recommend that you consult your doctors before the trip.

Accommodations  on the trek

     In Kathmandu, we use the deluxe hotel to ensure a comfortable stay and relaxed environment before and after your adventure. All breakfasts are included at the hotel in Kathmandu. Rooms are generally twin shares - depending on group size and room availability, the triple share may be offered to your request. A single supplement room is available at an additional cost.

Meals  during the trek

     In the city, only breakfast is included on the trip itinerary. While on the trek, we provide good quality food in sufficient quantities from Tea Houses/Mt. lodges. We provide all meals on full board (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and tea & coffee) from the teahouse menu during the trekking period. Various meals including noodles item, soups, bread, rice item, curries, spaghetti, pizza, egg items, potatoes item, pasta, the fresh vegetable so overall you have a different choice of food on the trek.

Drinking-Water

    Staying hydrated is important when undertaking any physical activity but particularly so at the altitude where it is generally recommended to drink at least 3-4 liters per person per day. We strongly encourage you not to buy bottled water on the trek as this contributes to the growing problem of plastic pollution in Nepal’s trekking areas.
All tea houses will provide cold water free of charge if requested. Although this should not be drunk untreated, we recommend that you bring a reusable bottle with a wide opening (Nalgene or similar) with you and use a SteriPEN to treat it with. A SteriPEN is a handheld UV water purifier – small, lightweight and battery-powered so easy to pack for a trek. In Nepal’s trekking regions most of the bottled water isn’t strictly ‘mineral water’ anyway but is UV treated, so it’s exactly the same technology. It’s quick to use, far more effective than purification tablets, and the water is ready immediately. It’s fine to use a SteriPEN on non-boiled water so long as it isn’t cloudy or full of sediment (which is uncommon in these regions).

TRAVEL & MEDICAL & TRAVEL INSURANCE 

    Before you book any of our trips we strongly suggest that you buy medical and travel insurance to make you stay and while traveling in Nepal Himalaya or neighboring countries, which will help and support you, in case medical and travel problems arise and situation beyond companies control.

The Himalayan foothills, where most of our treks take place, are best in the cool dry season from September to May. The traditional trekking season in Nepal is late September to May, with October and November generally recognized as having the best weather.

Let me first start by thanking our guide Raju and the team of Well Plan Trekking for preparing our Tsum Valley and Manaslu trip which we had to change due to very bad weather. We realized instead it very nice Langtang trek. We appreciated the support of our guide Raju and the team of Well Plan Trekking. We had to use the helicopter because the way was totally destroyed by many landslides. Our guide changed our trip and customized the package to suit our requirements He was very helpful. We faced a lot of difficulties due to heavy rain and a lot of landslides. Well Plan Trekking Pvt Ltd has the best team! Thank you for it. 🙂
They picked us up at the airport, guided us through Nepal and also brought us back to the airport. The service was above our expectations and our guide was a member of our family.
