Manaslu Circuit Trek

Hello everyone,

I’m a Brazilian/Italian guy (27yo). This is my first time in Nepal and I’m planning to do the Manaslu circuit trek for around 15, 16 days starting on the 1st of November from kathmandu. I already have an agreement with a local guide who guided some friends of mine in the past and they had a pretty good experience. 🙂 For this trek it is mandatory to have a guide. It would be nice if someone else would like to join. I’m planning on doing it only with the guide but if more people want to join and would like to have a porter, I’m sure it could be arranged.

This is a bit of the itinerary according to my guide but it’s quite flexible.

Day 1 Arughat
Day 2 Khorla
Day 3 Jagat
Day 4 Dang
Day 5 Namrung
Day 6 Lho
Day 7 Sama
Day 8 Sama (explorer Manasalu Bace camp)
Day 9 Samdo
Day 10 Samdo explorer sonam peak
Day 11 Dharmsala
Day 12 Larkey pass (Bimtang)
Day 13 Pongar lake explorer / Gho
Day 14 Tal
Day 15 Beshisahar
Day 16 Ktm or Pokhara

The price is an estimative of costs during the trek and sharing the guide wage. I’m still waiting for a message to know exactly about the permits costs and I will update as soon as I know.

if there are people interested and serious about these dates we can arrange some skype talks in order to organize better and of course to get to know each other a little bit. 🙂

ps. I speak Italian, Portuguese, French, English, and I can get by in Spanish.

Thanks a lot for now. I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Hey Dani. I’m interested in joining your trek. Actually the dates would be perfect for me. My flight arrives in Kathmandu October 29 and my flight out is on November 21.

    From what I can see, it looks like 70+20+20 USD for the three different permits required. And I think I read somewhere that there’s a minimum of two people to get the permits for the Manaslu restricted area.

    Anyway, if that sounds good, let’s talk more and figure things out.

    • Hi Justin, thanks for your message. Would you mind sending me an email? then we can talk more…

  2. Hi Dani,
    I’ve been in touch with Justin about doing the manaslu trek. I’m interested and will be arriving in Katmandu Oct 28. Are you OK with having another join and splitting the cost of the guide? I’m fit and pretty easy going. I fly out on Nov 22 so I’d also be up for hiking a few days after…possibly in the anapurna area or something else.
