: (45)

Manaslu Circuit Trekking highlights of this trek include.

Trekkers can also enjoy panoramic views of neighboring peaks such as Himlung Himal, Manalu 8163 M, Nadi Chili 7871 m, Naike Peak & Ganesh Himal range.
  • Many suspension bridge crossings: The first part of the trail follows the Buri Gandaki, a deep, long river gorge, with many suspension bridge crossings.
  • Cultural Diversity: The trek takes you through a variety of ethnic villages, allowing trekkers to experience the diverse cultures and traditions of the local people. Villages along the route are inhabited by Gurungs, Tamangs, and Sherpas, each with their unique customs, festivals, and architecture.
  • Less Crowded: Compared to more popular trekking routes in Nepal, such as the Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Circuit, the Manaslu Circuit is less crowded. This provides a more peaceful and remote trekking experience, allowing trekkers to immerse themselves in the natural surroundings without the hustle and bustle of larger trekking routes.
  • Remote and Untouched Landscapes: The trek takes you through a range of landscapes, from lush green valleys and terraced fields to alpine forests and high mountain deserts. The remote and less-visited nature of the trail adds to its appeal for those seeking a more pristine and untouched trekking experience.
  • High Mountain Passes: The challenge of crossing high mountain passes, particularly the Larkya La Pass at an elevation of 5,106 meters (16,923 feet), adds an element of adventure to the trek. Crossing these passes rewards trekkers with stunning views and a sense of accomplishment.
  • Wildlife and Biodiversity: The Manaslu region is rich in biodiversity, and trekkers may encounter various species of flora and fauna along the trail. The region is a habitat for elusive wildlife such as the snow leopard, red panda, and Himalayan tahr.
  • Cultural and Historical Sites: The trek passes through several ancient monasteries, chortens (Buddhist shrines), and traditional villages, providing opportunities for cultural exploration and interaction with the local communities. The historical and religious significance of these sites adds depth to the trekking experience.
  • Cultural Immersion: Trekkers have the opportunity to engage with local communities, learn about their way of life, and witness traditional ceremonies and festivals. This cultural immersion adds a unique and enriching dimension to the trek.
  • Special Permits and Regulations: The requirement for special permits (Manaslu Restricted Area Permit) adds a sense of exclusivity to the trek, and the regulations help in managing the number of trekkers, contributing to the preservation of the area.
  • Conservation Area: The Manaslu region is designated as a conservation area, aiming to preserve the unique biodiversity and cultural heritage of the area. By trekking in this region, you contribute to the local economy and support conservation efforts.
  • Off-the-Beaten-Path Experience: Manaslu Trek offers a sense of adventure and exploration as it takes you through remote and less-developed areas of Nepal. It provides a chance to escape the bustling cities and immerse yourself in the peaceful and untouched natural surroundings. Overall, the combination of natural beauty, cultural diversity, and a sense of adventure makes the Manaslu Circuit Trek a compelling choice for those seeking a unique trekking experience in the Himalayas.

Manaslu Circuit Trekking begins with the exciting and interesting drive from Kathmandu to reach warmer low areas of Gorkha Valley near the raging Buri-Gandaki River, where the walk follows the river upstream right up to its glacial source at high Manaslu Valley near Sama Gaon and Larke Phedi (bottom).

This type of trek involves long ups and downs and the length of walking will be from 5 - 7 hours every day with rest and break in between.  The whole trip goes from a week to two weeks or more in the high altitude. This trip is for well-experienced people who have done previous long high hills or mountainous trekking in and around the Himalayas or other mountainous areas on rough terrains, this trip involves walking in snow and ice conditions sometimes and encountering high of over 4,000 meters passes, as for moderate people can join on this type of trips as long they are super physically fit and a mind with positive and determinations. 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 a relaxed environment before and after your adventure. All breakfasts are included at the hotel in Kathmandu. Rooms are generally twin share - depending on group size and room availability, the triple share may be offered at your request. A single supplement room is available at an additional cost. And on request single supplement will be charged US$200.well plan trekking will arrange clean and comfortable rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. also, note that single rooms are available in the trekking regions at the lower elevation but it might be difficult to find them at higher elevations.

Meals  during the trek

    In the city, only breakfast is included in 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 include noodles items, 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. 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 while traveling in Nepal Himalaya or neighboring countries, which will help and support you, in case medical and travel problems arise and situations beyond the company's control. If such a situation arises with emergency evacuation, where your medical bills on using transportation services by Helicopter or other means you can directly claim from your insurance, which is to be paid by you or by your insurance company on the spot.

       Where Well Plan Treks will obtain a strong letter of the incidents that occurred so that you can claim from your insurance agents. In case of mishaps and accidents or severe illness, we will contact your insurance company if it is okay to use Heli or other immediate life-saving processes and transportation to the nearest medical post and hospitals, where your insurance company will directly pay related expenses accordingly as per situations and conditions of the victims. For all trips with us, we need your contact address as well as your next of kin, family members, close relatives, or friends in case of emergency purposes.

Climate and Weather 
       The climate of Nepal is as varied as its geography. The low-lying Terai has a sub-tropical monsoonal climate. 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 from late September to May, with October and November generally recognized as having the best weather. Spring is also a popular time of year with warmer weather and the advantage of seeing spring flowers and rhododendrons in bloom. The visibility is good, and the days are pleasantly warm, although nights can be cold, and snow is possible above 3,000 meters.

We have been with two of our 13-year-old daughters for over 20 days on the trail (Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit) organized by Ram from Well Planned Trekking. That was a wonderful experience. Tsum Valley is less commercial so you need to be prepared for a little less accommodation and comfort, but in return, you gain a truly unique experience of Nepali hard but happy life in the mountains. Manaslu Circuit is a more nature-oriented trek. It has breathtaking views. You can fully appreciate the magnificent and at the same time ruthless beauty and might of nature. We are thankful to Ram from Well Planned Trekking, who made this experience possible for us. He is an extremely experienced guide, and he knows every little path there. Wherever we went, he knew the people around: the villagers, the hostel owners, and the staff. What’s more, and what distinguishes him from other guides is his willingness to show and explain the life and customs of those people around him. What is also worth mentioning is that our guide and both of our porters were all the time to help us – not only during the walking time but all the time. We have a feeling of having premium service.

We decided to take the full package with Well Planned Trekking (from arrival to departure a month later at the airport), and this was a very good decision. Everything was indeed very well planned, with some time in the cities (but not too much – we preferred it that way). At the trail, the distances were perfectly calculated. A little longer at the beginning, then a little shorter when we were higher – with resting/acclimatization days at just the right moment. It did pay off to trust in Ram planning experience.

To throw some tips for the fellows who would like to repeat our trip:
* the electricity is there usually, with max one-day break without
* The temperature differs – on the same day we experienced 7C at the morning and over 25C (!) at noon. The coldest night was at Dharamsala: -10C.
* crampons (little ones – so-called microspikes) are very helpful for Larke Pass
* water is all around, so if you have chlorine tablets (or another filtering system) – you don’t need a too big a bottle
* toilets are a tough experience – embrace the adventure :

Great trek with great company. Beautiful nature, amazing people, wonderful experiences. With a clear conscience, I can recommend Well Plan Trekking to everyone. From the first contact, everything went smoothly. Ram prepared and organized everything perfectly and was our support throughout. I traveled with my wife and 3 children (10, 16 and 20 years old) and it was a great holiday for all of them thanks to Ram’s help.

Review of Well Plan Trekking

Ram is the best guide. He arranges the best hotels, helps you with everything, and shows you the best places. We did the 13-day Manaslu trekking. The trekking was hard, but every time we needed something, the ram would help us right away. He told us all these facts about the places and offered us different options for the resting days. He checked our health during the trip and made sure we were all ok. The porters were very nice, and we felt like a team. Would recommend booking your trip with well plan trekking. He is as quick as possible with a reply while booking the trip, and will offer all of these good ideas to help prepare for the trip! If we would go again, for sure we will book with him again!

Ram is the best

Ram is a very skilled guide! Friendly, nice to everybody and very helpful. In moments needed he can also be strict too. Dealing with high altitude is not a joke! We will definitely come back to Nepal and book a trip with Ram! 10/10 would definitely recommend

Connor

My friend and I did this Trek in May of 2023. Ram and his team were great and helped us with everything we needed. Ram (our guide) was very organized and made sure we were well taken care of throughout the trek and our entire time in Nepal. The views we had were incredible and we enjoyed seeing the beauty of this area. We enjoyed this trek a lot because it wasn’t particularly commercialized. Would recommend this trek and well plan trekking to someone looking for a good adventure.

Tomas

Well Plan Trekking arranged our trip from the first till the last second. Picked us up at the airport, guided us through Nepal and also brought us back to the airport. The service was beyond expectations and our guide and porter were the best we could hope for. Very helpful and above all very nice people.

Certainly, I would recommend Well Plan Trekking when you decide to visit Nepal.

Bartosz

Based on our trekking around Manaslu in the autumn of 2023, I can honestly recommend this company. Our guide Ram was trustworthy, very well organized and helpful. If we ever go trekking to Nepal again, we will definitely use their services.

In Nov 2021, We successfully finished Manaslu Circuit with our guide/owner Mr. Ram and 2 other porters. It was 14 days trip including transportation and in addition to this, we spent another 4 days in beautiful Chitawan National Park, where we did a lot of activities such as car safari, bird watching, walking in the jungle, etc. Mr. Ram has a lot of experience with the routes and safety was his first concern. He did everything to make us feel comfortable and he was OK to modify our initial plan. Thank you Mr. Ram for your guidance and patience.
Well Plan Trekking is a well-organized company and We highly recommend this company to everyone who is planning to visit Nepal.

Awesome trekking experience. The Manaslu circuit trek was well organized and super flexible as we were changing and adjusting the trip while trekking based on the pace and health conditions. We stopped at different spots to take pictures. There were no time limits. The team was very experienced, well-equipped, and professional. Mr. Ram took special care of the safety and comfort of the group. He was very helpful and funny. We had a good talk and laugh together during the trip.
A huge thanks to Ram and his team at Well Plan Trekking for making our time in Manaslu unforgettable.Thank you for the incredible experience. I highly recommend this company!

We spent a wonderful stay in Nepal. Ram and his team were very professional: taking care of us, were flexible to adopt the agenda, and provided a lot of advice to avoid problems. We went to 5100 m without any health problems and enjoyed ourselves a lot during our stay. On top Ram ask for a very reasonable price. I strongly recommend it!!!!!

Mike

This was my fifth trek in Nepal. I was delighted to be involved with Ram from Well Plan Trekking. He made the whole trip very easy and paced me through the process.
Manaslu is known as the Adventure Trek. It’s not hard to see why. The valleys are steep V-shaped and the rivers are cascading torrents.
As a solo trekker who used to carry all my own gear, it was a pleasant change to have only a day pack and camera.
Ram organized everything with skill and humor.
The planning was done online back in Sydney. All I had to do was show up!
My passion is trekking and birdwatching and Manaslu is top shelf for both.
Carrying a bird book and the heavy camera was well worth the effort. The trek was challenging especially in fairly deep snow. Too deep to attempt the Larke Pass. Unfortunately, we had to backtrack.

If you are looking for value, good organizational skills, and a genuinely good bloke, Ram is your man!!

Wellplan Trekking lives up to its name. Planning, briefing, providing equipment, and adjusting to specific needs or opportunities, everything was well handled by Ram and his team. Good selection of lodges and food, and good recommendations on rhythm. we were 4 friends in good shape, we adjusted the program to spend more time at higher altitudes, visit the Punggen Gompa temple, and go to the Manaslu base camp. We were blessed with very good weather, an unforgettable experience.

Manaslu Circuit Trek
Well Plan Trekking organized a smooth and transparent tour and made the experience a very positive one. They also arranged hotel bookings for extra days at the end of the Trek. My guide Ram was very knowledgeable of the terrain and trail and always made sure I was doing fine during the trek. He would tend to my needs and concerns, including changes to the itinerary to make the trek more comfortable or more exciting while not being pushy. My porter Hem was also very helpful, especially during the treks across the Larky passes. The Manaslu Circuit Trek is a challenging but very rewarding trek in the Manaslu region, where you get to experience everything the traditional Manaslu Circuit Trek offers and much more.
