Why Manaslu Trek is becoming famous compared other trekking routes?

The Manaslu Circuit trek is a stunning 13-day journey (18 days including travel and days in Kathmandu) which treks around the world’s eighth highest mountain, beginning in the busy market town of Soti Khola, going up and back along a different path, ending in Syange. This is a trek for someone who wants something different in Nepal but still offers the most striking and jaw-dropping scenery.

Many people liken the Manaslu Circuit trek to the Annapurna before it got busy! It is in a region which was closed to outsiders until the early 90’s and tourism is still restricted. It is also not quite as high as the Annapurna circuit and really is a stunning and less trodden path.

Below is a short clip from independent traveller Tatiana Kolgunova that perfectly captures the essence and beauty of the Manaslu region.

The drive from Kathmandu to Soti Khola takes around 8/9 hours and the return drive from Syange to Kathmandu takes around 7/8 hours. The trek ascent is for 9 days, which includes two full days rest and acclimatisation which stay at the same overnight village, to the last settlement of Larkya Phedi. After one day climbing up and over the high point of Larkya La at 5160m with excellend panoramic views of Himlung Himal, Cheo Himal, Kang Guru and Annapurna II), the descent is then another 3 days.
