An adventurous trip across the Manaslu Conservation Area and the foothills of the Manaslu range is known as the Manaslu Base Camp Trek. The Manaslu region is an ancient valley that has been well-known for centuries and is found in the district of Gorkha’s northern part. Traveling through this area, which is brimming with breathtaking scenery and adventure, also gives you the chance to experience the Nubri and Tibetan communities’ cultures and traditions. The walk is worthwhile because it offers breathtaking vistas of the Mansiri Himalayas as well as glimpses of glaciers, waterfalls, and raging rivers.

Your 16-day journey to Manaslu Base Camp Trek starts when you land in Kathmandu. The following day, you tour Kathmandu, a stunning city with a diverse culture. Some of the World Heritage Sites that you will see are Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, and the Kathmandu Durbar Square. As you travel from Kathmandu to Soti Khola in the Rasuwa District, the Manaslu experience begins. You ascend a ridgeline to Maccha Khola and then reach Jagat while trekking through a sal and rhododendron forest. After leaving Jagat, you are greeted by a stunning view of the mountains, which leads you to settlements with Tibetan cultural influences. After passing through Deng and Namrung, you will arrive in Samagaon. After staying at Samagaon for a day, you will hike to Manaslu Base Camp. You reach the Manaslu Base Camp by following the trail through a forest, climbing steeply up a slope and then onto a moraine. From here, you can see Manaslu (8163m) up close. After a little interval, you return to Samagaon and go to Machha Khola, passing Namrung, Deng, and Jagat en route. You will walk from Machha Khola to Arughat, where the expedition comes to a finish. The optimum times to go through this area are from September to December and from February to May.

Day 1

Our corporate staff will meet you at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu when you arrive. After that, you’ll be driven to the appropriate hotel. Today’s activities aren’t booked, so you can go shopping and explore the area near your hotel.

Day 2

You have the day off to relax and stroll around Kathmandu. You will visit some of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, and the Kathmandu Durbar Square. The square, which was constructed during the Malla Dynasty, exhibits the art, culture, and social customs of that period. The oldest temple in Nepal is Swayambhunath, sometimes referred to as the “monkey temple.” The largest and most well-known Buddhist temple is Boudhanath, whereas Pashupatinath is a well-known Hindu temple.

Day 3

You will take a car to Soti Khola, the starting point of the hike, from Kathmandu. Driving through Dhading Besi, the administrative center for the Dhading district, is rather painless. You will proceed directly to your hotel as soon as you arrive in Soti Khola. The following day, the ascent of Manaslu begins.

Day 4

You start your trip from Soti Khola in the direction of Machha Khola. A suspended bridge will be your first stop on the trail that leads through a Sal forest. The route gradually dips before rising once more to reach the Budhi Gandaki rapids. You reach the Gurung settlement of Lapubesi after passing through a number of tiny settlements. You continue walking from there, passing Ganesh Himal (7422m) and Shringi Himal (7161m), till you reach Maccha Khola.

Day 5

Before reaching Khorlabesi and Tatopani’s hot springs, the trail continues to ascent and descend. You then ascend another ridgeline before using a suspension bridge to cross the Budhi Gandaki River. You use the broad staircase to reach Dobhan after traversing a forest. You have to trek farther to get to Jagat after crossing two additional bridges.

Day 6

After departing Jagat, you climb a rough slope to reach Salleri. You are then greeted by a stunning view of the mountains as you descend. You will pass Mani walls with prayer wheels and stone dwellings as you travel along the trail because the area has a significant Tibetan influence. You travel through a bamboo grove as you pass Gurung communities, cross a stream on a suspension bridge, and eventually reach at Deng.

Day 7

The hike starts out with a gradual elevation and then follows the Marsayangdi River. The trail then emerges from a gorge in a twisting direction, climbing steeply before dropping into Shringi Khola Valley. You proceed through a woodland on a steep incline after crossing a suspension bridge. After climbing a difficult hill, you reach Namrung after passing by a large cave and gorge.

Day 8

In order to go to the village of Sho after leaving Namrung, the trail travels through the Barcham town and crosses Himan Khola. The route then turns downward toward Damonan Khola. Visit Ribung Gompa along the way to take in the scenery of the Manaslu Massif, Naike Peak (6211m), and Larkya Peak (6249m). When you get at Samagaon, you catch sight of Sama Gompa, which is softly perched on a moraine, along with views of pastures, fields, and distant mountains.

Day 9

You have today to relax and stroll through Samagaon’s settlement. You take a short break before climbing sharply up a slope and onto a moraine. You stroll while taking in the breathtaking view of the glacier and Birendra Lake, which is encircled by mountains on all sides. You eventually arrive at Manaslu Base Camp by moving on. The vista of Manaslu (8163m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), and Birendra Lake is breathtaking from the camp. Following your adventure, you return to Samagaon.

Day 10

You turn around and return to the Namrung village. Along the trip, you’ll pass through the towns of Sho and Lho. Along the trail, there are a few other Tibetan settlements. As you travel east, you pass a lot of monasteries and get to see Himalchuli (7863m). You reach Namrung after crossing several suspended bridges and moving through a stunning forest.

Day 11

You travel to Deng village after leaving Namrung village. Retracing your steps, you descend through fir and rhododendron woodlands. As you see Shringi Himal, you pass through Prok hamlet, gompas, and gorges (7161m). You reach Deng after trekking along the twisting trail and through suspension bridges.

Day 12

You go back the way you came after breakfast and descend to Jagat. After crossing the Deng Khola, you will first proceed through a bamboo forest. As you continue, you will pass the prayer wheels that adorn the Mani walls and cross the Philim, Sirdibas, and Salleri. You reach Jagat by continuing down the path while taking in the scenery of the highlands.

Day 13

After leaving Jagat village, you travel to Machha Khola by means of suspended bridges and broad stone staircases. You reach Machha Khola by descending the ridgeline and again crossing the Tatopani hot springs. You will be accompanied by the Marsayangdi River, which rushes south and past Gurung and Magar villages.

Day 14

You start your final day of the hike and travel to Arughat after a leisurely breakfast. Gorkha District’s rural municipality of Arughat. Even though the distance is considerable, the path is largely level as you get closer to the town of Arughat. After this arduous day of walking, which serves as the trek’s final day, you can rest.

Day 15

A bus will arrive after breakfast to transport you back to Kathmandu, the nation’s capital. While driving, you can unwind and take in the scenery, the tranquil sound of the river, and the passing towns and villages. When you get to Kathmandu, the tour comes to a close, and you immediately check into your hotel. You can wander around Thamel in the evening and browse for trinkets if you wish.

Day 16

You will be taken to the airport at your scheduled time for your scheduled flight home. We will drive you to Tribhuvan International Airport and head out early to avoid traffic. We bid you goodbye from the land of the Himalayas where you are always welcome for another visit.

What to Bring?


When you are up in the mountains in Nepal, we would suggest you to be ready for anything. Weather forecasts for Lukla are never correct and different sources will give you different information. If it is a really bad day in terms of weather, the airlines will themselves cancel the flight and you might have to wait till the weather clears. Yes, flying in high altitude is never easy, even on a clear sunny day, the plane might face turbulence because of the wind blowing from the mountains. But overall the flight to Lukla is very exciting and it’s an experience that you will never forget.
