This guide helps to Streamlining Your Manaslu Trek for your successful trek.

Before You Go:

Peak Season:

Manaslu boasts stunning landscapes, but it’s best experienced September-November for clear skies and comfortable temperatures. Shoulder seasons (April-May & October) offer fewer crowds but come with unpredictable weather. Read more Best Time for Manaslu Trek: A Season-by-Season Guide.

Permits & Regulations:

The Nepalese government has designated the Manaslu region, specifically the area between Jagat and Dharapani, as restricted. This helps manage visitor numbers and monitor trekkers entering and exiting the region. Obtain Manaslu Restricted Area Permit (RAP) & Manaslu Conservation Area Permit (MCAP) well in advance including Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP). As we are one of the best and leading trekking company for Manaslu Region, we do arrange your permits and necessary documents for your trek.

Manaslu is a challenging trek. Prepare with regular hikes with a weighted pack to build endurance. To complete the Manaslu Circuit Trek, prioritize cardio hikes with a weighted pack, incorporating strength exercises for legs, core, and back, and gradually increase difficulty. Aim for 4-5 cardio sessions a week, 2-3 strength sessions, and regular practice hikes on similar terrain, ideally starting your training 6 months in advance.

Gear Up Smartly:

  • Layers: Temperatures vary dramatically. Pack thermals, fleece, waterproof jacket & pants.
  • Footwear: Sturdy, well-broken-in hiking boots are essential. Invest in good quality socks to prevent blisters.
