    I’m going to do the Inca Trail trek in Peru this fall so I’ve started thinking about other future treks. I’d love to do the The Manaslu Circuit trek as it seems so beautiful and less crowds are a definite plus. I’m not sure I’m ready to trek for so many days, but I’m sure I could prepare beforehand. Just to see the Larkya La Pass would be incredible, it looks stunning.

      It sure is an amazing experience and if you’re into trekking, I’d definitely recommend it.

    I’ve seen photos of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek and I know how crowded it gets. That was one of the things that put me off doing any real trekking when I was in Nepal (that, and I didn’t quite have enough time). So it’s awesome to hear about a quieter trekking circuit. The Manaslu Circuit trek sounds and looks amazing – especially the Larkya La Pass. You have me itching to return to Nepal now!!!

      I can relate, Emily. I’m glad to hear this article inspired you to visit Nepal and I hope you get the chance to visit the Manaslu Circuit before it becomes more crowded 🙂

    Nepal looks gorgeous! I would love to hike there but I do have a history of altitude sickness. Either way I’d love to see this beautiful country in person.

      Well, I met a lot of people with altitude sickness trekking in Nepal. There are some pills and natural remedies against it. Either way, I hope you get the chance to visit someday.

    This is really interesting! We’ve been reading a lot into climbing Everest and it seems way overcrowded and it has put us off but this seems a brilliant alternative! Thank you for this guide, it’s super useful! 😊

    I think I would need to do a lot of endurance training for this! The idea of hiking in jungle and snow in the same trek is so exciting. I bet this is a really rewarding experience.

    Finding less popular places like this can be so rewarding, especially when it’s this beautiful! It’s good to hear the Manaslu region is restricted to protect the natural resources. That is so important! I’d love to visit a place like this, but the multi-day trek sounds so intense!

      It is, Andrea but the experience, in the end, is very rewarding 🙂

    I have read a lot of good reviews about Manaslu and we had been planning to trek here. Happy to know that it’s less crowded. Appreciate all of these tips that you mentioned. We’d try to visit between December and August since it’s off peak. Your post just made us excited.

    Wow, this trek sounds incredibly intimidating to someone like me! However, I’d love to get to the point where I can bravely take on this bucket list adventure! I’ve never been anywhere where I’ve experienced altitude sickness so that is a concern of mine. Nepal is definitely on my list of places to visit soon and I’d like to get to the point where I’m comfortable enough to take on this trek and amazing experiences before heading out there! And great point about hiring a guide. I definitely would not do it any other way!

    The Manaslu Circuit looks like an amazing experience without all the crowds of other Nepal hikes. I’m glad you addressed altitude sickness and the need to be fit. These look like strenuous hikes. What a great way to see this corner of the world. I wouldn’t want to miss the Tibetan border either!

    Love all the pictures from the Manaslu Circuit and the surrounding areas. Nepal is just spectacular! I wonder it’s not a favorite trek because hikers have to go through the snowiest, coldest, and most challenging passes in the Himalayas. If I get a chance to do this, I don’t think I will reach the top. Probably half way, and more than 12 days. Haha…

    Nepal has never been on my radar and I think it’s sad that some of these nature trails get so crowded. But it sure looks beautiful there! You have been able to catch some amazing photos over there!

    Honestly, I haven’t heard about Manaslu Circuit Trek. But I am glad that I read your blog. This trek seems offbeat & quote interesting. Thank you sharing all the details. Loved reading about it.

      Thanks. It is a really prominent trek in Nepal and definitely offbeat
