Manaslu is the eight highest mountain in the world with a height of 8,163 meters above the sea level. Manaslu is locally known as Kutang. The beauty of Manaslu is very popular all around the world. The Nepal Government created the Manaslu Conservation Area (MCA) with an area of 1,663 Sq. Km in December 1998. The Manalsu Region is located in the northern part of Gorkha district, bordering with the Tibetan plateau of the People’s Republic of China to northeast, Annapurna Conservation Area to the west and the mid part of Gorkha district to the south. The Manalsu Region elevation ranges from the lower altitude of 1400 m. to 8,163 m above sea level. The seven VDCs (Districts) of MCA are culturally divided into three valleys namely Nubri, Kutang and Tsum. Nubri, which means "The Western Mountains" in the Tibetan dialect, includes the section of Budi Gandaki valley west of Namrung. Kutang is the region along the Budi Gandaki valley between Namrung and Dyang including parts of Prok and Bihi VDCs. The area along the Shyar Khola valley in the eastern part of the conservation area, including Chumchet and Chhekampar VDCs is known as Tsum.
The Manaslu Trek is great for people who have a good physical health and are eager to stroll at high altitudes. Note that hiking in Manaslu is moderate to strenuous. However, elderly people can also finish this trek if they take the necessary acclimatization.
Accommodation is in guesthouses (often called teahouses) along the way. Rooms have two single beds and usually a small window. Toilet facilities are most often shared rather than en-suite bathrooms on the Manaslu Trek. They can be inside the main house or in the outhouse. It may be a western style toilet or a squat. Things tend to become more basic at higher altitudes. There's also a dining room where food is prepared, so it's a perfect spot to get to know your fellow trekkers. The higher you go, usually around dinner time there will be a fire in the dining room, although this is by no means guaranteed.
During the lodge trek, we will enjoy authentic Nepalese food (Dal bhat, vegetables, curry …) rice, lentil, as well as more-foreign cuisine. You can select from the lodge menu if you want, and at a time when it's difficult to pick, our guide can help you choose and taste the local cuisine. Breakfast and dinner are served from the teahouse or from the lodge menu where we spend the night. Lunch and Dinner are not included in the price. If you want to include the lunch and dinner you would have to tick the box at the top right side of the booking menu.
Owing to the small hydropower project, 220 volts of electrical power is available in many villages. Light and power sockets are also available for charging batteries on a payable basis. Villages without electricity normally use a solar energy for charging lights and batteries.
The Manaslu trek is physically exhausting and drinking a lot of water is a must. The first several days at low altitudes can be hot, so expect a lot of water to be needed. At cooler, higher altitudes, you can feel less thirsty, but drinking lots of water allows you to acclimate. Planning to have at least two liters of water when trekking every day is a smart way to start. Filling up water is quick. Taps in, out or in guesthouses mean that there are plenty of places to fill your bottles and/or your water bladders. This could be where you stay, a lunch stop, or a shared public tap used by locals. Use an efficient sterilization method to make sure your water is safe and not contaminated in anyway. Bottled water is available to buy throughout the trek, but we would advise against this for a number of reasons. You do not need them if you use sterilization method. Environment concerns are there and also buying water is expensive up in the mountains.
You would require permits for this trek, which are Restricted Area permit (RAP), ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Project), and MCAP (Manaslu Conservation Area Project).
AET shall take care of the permits for you.
We suggest taking out an insurance plan for your individual accountability, accidents and illnesses during the service.
Regarding the type of activity, you may be asked to show a certificate of insurance for help and support, sanitation and search. This service is private and not free in Nepal, the helicopter will not take off until it is convinced to pay for the insurance.
It’s difficult to give an exact amount of money that you should bring. Costs will vary according to how much you want to spend for shopping and where and what meals (lunch & dinner) you want to eat. Trekkers find that around $20 (for lunch & dinner) a day is reasonable for the trekking days.
As for the tips, A general rule of thumb for tipping is USD 25 for the guide per traveler and USD 25 for porter between two travelers if you are fully satisfied with their service. So we suggest you allocate a minimum of USD 60 for Tipping. This is just a guideline and you may tip whatever / how much you think is appropriate for the services rendered which made your trek a memorable one.
For the trek, we'll have one porter for two people as per group size. The porter will carry 10-15kg per person luggage during the trek. You need to carry your daypack to keep your personal belongings such as wallet, camera, water bottle, dry snack, headlight, gadgets etc.
The ideal time to go hiking in Manaslu is from September to November. In general, the weather is dry and clear, with warm sunny days and excellent visibility. Spring during April-May is also considered the best time for this trek. At this time of year, there is a reduced incidence of weather-related natural disasters, making the trekking climate much safer. Moreover, given that it's the best season, it's also the busiest.
