WHAT THE TREK INVOLVES
Following a wonderful welcome dinner in the heart of Kathmandu, the next morning you will begin by driving approximately 6 hour to the first village on the trek, Soti Khola. From there you will begin your hiking walking anywhere from 3 – 8 hours per day, taking it at your own pace and stopping for tea and snacks at the local lodges. Each day is filled with iconic views of the Himalayan hills and mountains as well as the historical Buddhist monasteries and stupas. Upon arriving in Samagaon, the last village before Manaslu Basecamp, you will have the chance to trek up to the basecamp area itself (4,800m) to see Manaslu in all its beauty and embrace the expedition history of the mountain. Beyond the Basecamp you will hike up to Larkya la pass at 5160m, one of the longest passes in Nepal but finishing on a view that will send shivers down your spine. The trek is a circuit and so you will be visiting different villages the whole way through and reaching a maximum height of 5160m.
