  7. Consider Medication: Doctors must consult you before going on your trek and discuss the application of drugs such as Diamox to prevent altitude sickness. If you display signs of acute mountain sickness (AMS), follow the directions given by your doctor.

Many trekkers prefer the spring season since it is when you find the forest swaming with blossoming rhododendron flowers hence complementing its natural beauty.

Another great season for this trek is autumn. This weather attracts a high number of tourists, most who spent their vacation during this season. By September, when the monsoon has receded whereas trekking climate becomes great. The average temperature during the day is around 20°C while at night it will drop to about 5°C. October trekking is rewarded with a cloudless sky, wonderful ubiquitous landscapes of the mountains and properly kept trails. Moreover, this season also overlaps with some of the biggest festivals in Nepal- Dashain, Tihar Chhat and Indrajatra which brings a vibe of celebrations to its surroundings. The months of November is also notable xor trekking because there are times when the days turn clear and sparkle. By about mid-november temperatures begin to fall.

Climate and Weather

The climate and weather in mountain climbing regions even the Manaslu Region which can be unpredictable tend to follow seasonal patterns. Here’s an overview of the climate and weather you can expect during the 10-day Manaslu trek:

Peak Trekking Season (September to November): It is a dry and cold climate during this time giving clear visibility good enough to view beautiful mountain ranges. Daytime temperatures are between 10°C to 20°C and nighttime temperature lows could go as low down -5 degrees Celsius. It is a good season to trek with conducive weather.

Winter Months (December to February): The whole region experiences winter periods with some nights plunging temperatures to as low as -10°C. At higher elevations, snowfall is prevalent; it makes the journey a bit complicated. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a less crowded area and can tolerate more adventurous trekking this season may fit your needs. Make sure to have the dressing and necessary equipment that will be friendly to cold weather conditions.

Monsoon Season (June to August): By late Spring when the monsoon season hits this region, heavy rainstorms regularly occur and cover the sky in clouds. The tramping tracks however get flooded and slippery making navigation much more of an arduous task. This is the time for caution. In case you are planning to trek during the monsoon, ensure that you have good rain gear and footwear.

  1. Best Trip Ever
    (6 months ago)
    We are very happy at the end that we have found this company. Already in our first contact with him, Nim impressed us with outstanding precision and the best possible disposition. When we got to Kathmandu we had a conference with Nim to make sure we were properly prepared and well- equipped for the tough path ahead of us. The guide has accompanied us from the time we touched the soil in Kathmandu till our return. Without his presence, we couldn't have made the breakthrough. We strongly urge that anyone planning hiking in Nepal should get in touch with MCT and make reservations as soon as possible. The memories we formed will endure for life and we feel that we have made lifelong friendships with paul and his crew,.
