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

Trip Itinerary



You arrive at Kathmandu via Tribhuvan International Airport. Our staffs are eager to welcome you warmly. After brief introductions, you head to the hotel and refresh. You will meet our staff again for dinner, where you discuss the details of the expedition.



It takes time to prepare the permits for the expedition. So, we have separated two days for the preparations. After filling out your details, our staff will take care of other administrative work. Meanwhile, expert and licensed mountaineers will brief you regarding various topics on climbing Manaslu. If you want, we can prepare a short sightseeing tour of the valley as well. The sightseeing tour will include a visit to Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath Temple, and Patan Durbar Square.



After an early breakfast, you head west of the valley and drive along the winding hills. En route, you get to see amazing views of the hill landscape. From there, you head up to Arughat and then, you reach Soti Khola for overnight stay.



Today, the trek starts, and the first destination is Machha Khola. The trail goes up, and then, you sharply descend to Lapubesi. Then, you trek along the banks of Nauli Khola and Budhi Gandaki River to reach Machha Khola. Overnight stay at the teahouse.



After breakfast, you head to Tatopani, which is famous for its natural hot springs. You take a quick dip here and continue to trek. Then, you cross the Budhi Gandaki several times through suspension bridges. After crossing the last bridge, you arrive at Jagat, the gateway to Manaslu Conservation Area. You need to show your permits to enter the protected area. Overnight stay at the lodge.



After breakfast, you start to ascend towards Salleri and Sirdibas. The trail goes through scarce vegetation, and as you gain altitude, the landscape begins to get barren. Then, you reach Lokpa, and here onwards, you enter Tsum Valley. Trekking above the Budhi Gandaki and Shar Khola, you reach Dang for overnight stay.



Today, you walk along the northern banks of the Budhi Gandaki River. The trail goes through a forest filled with rhododendron and pine, and you might get to see amazing birds. Then, at the end of the forest, you cross the river and trek along the southern banks. After a while, you reach Namrung for an overnight stay at a teahouse. Many houses were affected by the 2015 earthquake.



After breakfast, you commence the trek. The trail goes to Shyala and other settlement areas. En route, you can see monasteries as well. By late afternoon, you reach your lodge at Samagaon, which presents fantastic views of Manaslu.



You need to acclimatize at least one day before you head to higher elevations. Samagaon is filled with shops and teahouses so that you can interact with the local people. You can also hike up to nearby hills to get scenic views of the terrain.



Finally, you make way towards the summit of Manaslu. The trek starts after breakfast. The trail ascends to steep and rocky terrain filled with moraines. After a strenuous climb, you arrive at the Base Camp and prepare to set up tents for overnight stay.



From today, you start your ascend to Manaslu’s summit. It will take about 20-22 days for you to ascend and descend back to the base camp. You will set up camp at various altitudes. There are fissures along the path so, you need to follow your guide strictly. From the summit, you are awarded amazing views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and other neighboring mountains.



After breakfast, you clean the Base Camp and head to Samdo. The trail winds through the banks of the Budhi Gandaki River. After a while, you reach Kermo Khadka and then head towards white Kani. You will then enter Samdo. Overnight stay at the lodge.



Today’s trek is the shortest trek of the whole trip. You make way towards Larkya La and en route, enjoy beautiful views of Manaslu and Syacha Glacier. Before reaching Dharamsala, you might spot some blue sheep and their herders. Overnight stay at Dharamsala.



The trail today first leads you to Larkya Pass. From the top, you can see breathtaking views of Manaslu, Annapurna, Cheol Himal, and other peaks. As you descend, the light gets spectacular. The trail gets challenging, but after crossing Taboche, it gets easier. You fall to Bimthang for an overnight stay at the teahouse.



After breakfast, you commence the trek and descend to Soti Khola. The trail provides serene views of the valley and mountains. Enjoying the look, you cross a ridge and descend to Goba, where you stay overnight.



After a hearty breakfast, you start your trek, as it is the last day you trek. The route goes through the rhododendron forest, and you leave Soti Khola to head towards Dudh Khola. You then reach Tilche and cross a stream to go to Thonje. From here, you cross the Marsayangdi River via a suspension bridge and arrive at Dharapani. After having lunch, you refresh and drive to Besisahar for an overnight stay.



After breakfast, you board the vehicle heading to Kathmandu. En route, enjoy the scenic views of the hills and rustic villages. Before nightfall, you will reach your hotel.



The long but exciting journey has finally come to an end. Today is the day you head back to your home. As per your scheduled flight, our staff will make sure that you reach the airport on time. Thank you for making beautiful moments with us, and we look forward to your next visit to Nepal!
