The trip begins as you head west from the capital- Kathmandu to Soti Khola on a drive. From here, you start the trek and continue along the Marsayangdi River. The trek takes you to through Gurung and Magar villages to Jagat. Further, you will enter regions heavily dominated by Nubri people. The trek passes Lho and Sho to reach Samagaon. Here, you spend a day to adapt to the high altitude and visit the nearby landmarks.
Then, you will trek to the Manaslu Base Camp after passing Birendra Lake on the way. As the next phase on the trip begins, you will start to ascend across the snowy trails. Further, the trip heads to Camp I as you traverse the snow-laden pathways.
Then, the trails take you on a difficult journey to Camp II at the height of 5700 meters. As the trail gathers more altitude, you head to Camp III. The next ascent heads even higher as you reach the Camp IV at an altitude of 7400 m.
Finally, the last climb will conclude at the top of Mt. Manaslu, which offers a mesmerizing scenery of the Manaslu, Himlung, and Cheo Himal ranges. As the return trek starts, you take a different route and head west to Dharamsala via Samdo. Then, the trek ends at Dharapani as you cross Larkya La Pass (5160m) and descend past Bimtang.
The Manaslu Expedition is an extremely challenging trip. So, the climbers will have to be in excellent physical shape. Also, the autumn and spring seasons are ideal for the journey
