How Difficult is Manaslu Circuit Trekking?

Manaslu Circuit Trek is considered moderate to strenuous in terms of difficulty. The Manaslu Trekking starts from the lower altitude of 700 m to a higher altitude of 5106 m at Larke La Pass. Manaslu trek is considered a harder trek as compared to the Annapurna Circuit Trek and Everest Base Camp trek.

Even for seasoned trekkers, some sections of the trails can be difficult. You’ll be walking on sloppy, rugged, and steep trails. The roads are rough and dusty since many areas of Manaslu are still remote. Manaslu Circuit Trek Difficulty would be difficult for the first few days of the trails because the routes are steep and narrow. When you cross several suspension bridges over the Budhi Gandaki River, the trails will be breezy. The main difficulty of Manaslu Trek is its a rise in altitude for which every trekker needs to be prepared. The altitude mountain sickness may occur to anyone. Altitude sickness, also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), is a natural occurrence while trekking at high altitudes. Fatigue, lack of appetite, and headache are early symptoms of altitude sickness. As a result, being well-versed in altitude sickness can only enhance your trekking experience. Prepare the itinerary including at least 2 days of acclimatization day. Hiking up slowly, hydrating yourself, or having medicine(consult the doctors) is the only way to tackle AMS in Manaslu circuit Trek.

    We had an amazing time doing Manaslu Trek. Our guide Soman was very experienced and made sure we acclimitised well before the pass. While others were resting at the tea house, we were acclimatizing by hiking around Samagaon. He always made sure we had good rooms and always ordered our dinner early so we could eat earlier. He also made many adjustments to the itinerary according to our pace and our request to jeep the dirt road on the way back. Our porter guide was also very experienced and observant. He was also always in the kitchen helping with making our meals, which I never saw other porters do. We will definitely trek with them again when we come back to Nepal!

    This is one of the most amazing trek I have ever done in Nepal. We did the entire Manaslu Circuit Trekking. We are lucky to have chosen Peregrine Treks, their porter/guides are one of the most funny, nicest guide/porter we've had. Not only we enjoyed the trip but we also had a great time.

    A very excellent service indeed. For any future treks in Nepal, I highly recommend Peregrine Treks and Expedition! They are very professional, Pradip was very accommodating and had provided all our request.

    Thank you Peregrine Treks for a wonderful trek!
