Manaslu Trekking

Manaslu Trekking

Manaslu Trekking (officially opened to trekkers in 1991) is a thrilling recently opened trekking trial leading towards the world's 8th highest mountain, Manaslu (8,163m). The name Manaslu means "The Spirit - Mountain" in the Local dialect, referring to the benevolent and strong deity, dwells within. Manaslu Trek encounters an interesting mix of authentic Hindu and Tibetan style Buddhist village with great pristine of mountain views, rich culture heritage, unsurpassed beauty, biological diversity and genuine adventure. The Manaslu region is bordered by Budi Gandaki River and Marshyangdi River. Since the trek in Manaslu region reach as high as 5,200 meters, the trekkers will see a wide range of flora typical of the middle hills and alpine regions of Nepal. The trekking around Manaslu has long been restricted due to the close proximity of the Tibetan border and is now open, but only for organized groups. The trek a high altitude trekking so it is very important to take our time when we are at high altitude with less walking hours per day or get well acclimatized while going in the high altitude.

The initial stage of Manaslu Trekking allows you to know more about Kathmandu visiting some of the monuments having great values and historic background. Taking a scenic drive we reach Aarughat from where the trekking route begins passing through Shanti Bazzar and reach Machha Khola via Soti Khola cutting into the steep valley and dense forests. From Machha Khoa the trial is an uphill climb reaching hot springs at Tatopani as we walk pass tiny village of Khorlabesi. After spending some time in Hot Spring we continue our expedition and head towards Jagat (Where we check in our trekking permits) ascending on stone stairs. Further, the trail leads us to Deng passing Ghata Khola, Philim village, Lokwa and Eklai- Bhatti. We then trek in the direction of Samagaon, while we hike into the woods before ascending the valley to reach Namrung.

The trail now moves towards Bimthang while we cross the Larkya Pass from where the view is just incredible. The path now is a descend to Syange via Dharapani and Chyamje.

Weather information

We offer trekking in Nepal from mid-September to May. However within this period there are clear seasons in the weather. From early September the monsoon rains decrease. By mid-October through to December the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, cold nights and clear views. Daytime temperatures can reach 25-30 deg C at low altitude in October and nights can drop to below 0 deg C at higher altitudes.

Winter trekking, from December to February, offers cool to mild and clear days with often very cold nights. Daytime temperatures at low altitudes will be mild, around 20 deg C and at night may drop to 0 or as low as -10 deg C at the higher points. Occasionally winter storms can bring snow as low as 2500m.

In March the cold, dry winter season begins to give way to warmer, wetter spring conditions. Mornings are usually clear with cloud build-up occasionally bringing afternoon rainstorms. Daytime temperatures increase quickly in March, with temperatures of up to 30 deg C and mild nights at low altitudes. The increase in rainfall in the hills is more than compensated for by the spectacular displays of rhododendrons and other wildflowers at this time of year. Late spring conditions, as in April and May, are generally hot at low elevations and as the clouds build up to the next monsoon, daily afternoon rainstorms are common. This is a period that generally has clear weather at the higher altitudes and is traditionally a time when mountaineering expeditions commence their ascents.

The monsoon creates a rainy season in Nepal, which lasts from mid-June to mid-September. During this time the Nepal Himalaya is unsuitable for trekking, with the exception of a few remote valleys. We offer treks during this period in Low altitude Treks in the Nepal Himalaya, Tibet & India (Kulu, Ladakh).

The post-monsoon period: From early September the monsoon rain starts to decrease. By mid-October through to mid-December the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, cold nights and clear views. Daytime temperatures can reach 25-30 degrees Celsius at lower altitudes and decrease as you gain height. Over 3000 meters the daytime temperatures can vary as much as 10 to 20 degrees Celsius, and may be hotter or colder, depending on whether it is sunny or windy etc. At night at lower altitudes, temperatures do not normally drop much, although as you approach November it does get colder and the days shorter. Up high it can drop sharply at night, from 0 to minus 10 or 15 and more when camped on the ice or snow.

The pre-monsoon period:In March the cold, dry winter season begins to give way to warmer, wetter spring conditions. Mornings are usually clear with cloud build-up bringing occasional afternoon rainstorms. Views of the mountains in the middle of the day and afternoon may often be obscured. Daytime temperatures increase quickly in March with temperatures of up to 30 degrees Celsius and mild nights. At higher altitudes it is similar to the conditions of the post-monsoon period, however there is usually more snow, which has accumulated over the winter period. There are spectacular displays of rhododendrons and wildflowers at this time of year. Late spring conditions ie April and May, are generally hot at low elevations and as the clouds build up to the next monsoon, daily afternoon rainstorms are common.

It is important that your body is adequately prepared for the physical challenges of trekking. It is thus important that you assess your own condition and train accordingly. In general, the fitter you are, the easier it will be for you to handle the rigors of the trek. A well-rounded training program would include strength training, aerobic cross training, and hiking (ideally at high altitude but not necessary).

Trekking in Nepal need not be considered risky affair as far as your health is concerned. Nevertheless, preventive measures such as a through medical checkup and inoculations before you start trekking can save you from unexpected hazards. Since the remote places of Nepal are not supplied with necessities that are essential for modern medical facilities and as the rescue and evacuation are measured in days, it is imperative to make a comprehensive first aid box consisting of basic drugs and accessories as part of the paraphernalia for trekking. Modern dentistry is unknown in the hill of Nepal so it is advised to have a checkup before departure from home. Tooth fillings; sometimes loosen in cold temperatures and high altitudes, so it is recommended to have them checked. Travelers are requested to bring medicine prescribed by their doctor at home. Common medicine for stomach problems, headache, and malaria is available in Kathmandu. Medicine is usually not available in remote areas. So necessary medicine is advisable to carry with you. Before going to Nepal, it is advised to get injections against typhoid, meningitis and hepatitis.
