Mansalu Base Camp Trek

Manaslu Circuit Trek was opened for trekking only after 1992 and this trek around the world’s eight highest peak Manaslu at 8163m is really enjoyable and less crowded . The name Manaslu means “The Spirit-Mountain” in local language, referring to the strong deity that dwells within. With an offer of fabulous beauty along the border of Nepal and Tibet. It is now a restricted trekking route for which trekkers should obtain a special permit from the government registered trekking agency of Nepal to get entrance in this region, (namaste nomad can arrange all permits for our trekker). Only then, you can have the chance to venture around its magnificent circuit. This trekking has a unique surrounding that is exceptionally rich in its bio-diversity, which has make it popular as the tourist destinations for several years. All the features of this region including natural scenery, high glacier lakes, fascinating flora and fauna and majestic Himalayan ranges have made it one of the best places of Nepal.

On the trail, you will get a chance to witness the magnificent view of Mt Manaslu (8163m), the eight tallest mountain in the world. This trekking route also provides enthralling views of other highest mountains in the world such as HimalChuli (7893m), Annapurna Range, Shringi (7187m), Ngadi Chuli (7871m) and Ganesh Himal.

  • The trekking trail is less crowded, wild and remote.
  • The trail follows the Budhi Gandaki, a deep, long river gorge, with many suspension bridges.
  • Breathtaking views of highest peaks in the world like Mt. Manaslu, Lamjung Himal and Mt. Annapurna II
  • The trekking trail gives an opportunity to explore both cultural and as well as natural diversity
Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu

Jump into international flight to Nepal, landing on the Kathmandu. Our staff receive you from the airport to the hotel, where you will spend the day in relax.

Day 2: Kathmandu Sightseeing/Shopping

Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, is famous for its world heritage sites like the Durbar Square, the Swayambhunath Stupa, Pashupatinath, and such other religious monuments expressing the excellence of Nepali art and culture. Follow our guide through a brief tour at Kathmandu, shopping on the way.

Day 3: Drive from Kathmandu to Aruhgat

Experience yourself for a long drive (maybe 7 hours) from Kathmandu to Arughat Bazaar (translates to “marketplace” in simple language). The first part of the journey takes you via a smooth highway but then we steer towards Arughat through the rough path of Gorkha.

Day 4: Arughat to Soti Khola

The trail starts today. We get off our comfy drive, and begin walking through lush valleys and rice paddy fields. We follow Budi Gandaki river, climb over the Kyoropani, descent down to the junction of the BudiGandaki and the Sundi khola. Enjoy a refreshing swim and camp overnight on this spot.

Day 5: Soti khola to Machha Khola

Our trail narrows down, leading us through densely forested hillsides, adorned with tiny villages here and there. We will trek though steep valley sides, pass the Lapbesi village, descent down to the riverbed and follow the wide and sandy path, climbing once in a while, towards Machha Khola (translates to “Fish Stream” in English). Nearby Maccha Khola, we will organize a camp for the night.

Day 6: Machha Khola to Jagat

Today, we shall cross the Maccha Khola, and walk upstream towards the small hamlet of Khola Bensi. Enjoy a bath in the hot spring there, and then move along the steep valley sides. The trail gets too steep at this point that we have to head for the left bank via a suspension bridge.

We resume our trek though a forested path, rest for a cup of tea at Doban, and then walk to Lauri, where we switch back to the right side of the river through another suspension bridge. A little climb and the sight of Jagat’s field will welcome you for an overnight camp.

Day 7: Jagat to Deng

It will take around 7 hours of trekking from Jagat to the tiny Deng village made up of just about 4 houses. From Jagat, we make a descent towards the river through stone steps and then ascent up a terraced hillside stopping at Saguleri to catch the exotic view of the Sringi Himal (7187m).  Then, after a few more crossings over the river, whenever the path becomes too steep, we ultimately climb up to Deng. Camp for the night.

Day 8: Deng to Ghap

Now the trail leads us through Lana village, and further up we will see Mani stones i.e. rocks etched with the Buddhist prayers – a sure sign that we have entered the cool Tibetan areas. In about 4 hours, we will be camping in the village of Ghap.

Day 9: Ghap to Lho Gaon

From Ghap, we move further up, crossing the BuriGandaki river three times more, towards the alpine territory, where your cameras will have lots of mountain views to capture. At length, we will reach the Namrung village (guys there will check or special permits), above which are pasture lands and a large stream (originating from Lidanda Glaciers) to cross over on our route. We will pass the Sho village, dwelling at the altitude of 3000m (provides nice views of Manaslu), and then reach our destination for the day – Lho Gaon.

Day 10: Lho Gaon to Sama Gao

Our eyes will see the majestic Peak 29, as we climb further up to Sama Gaon. We might camp here or move half an hour further to the Sama Gompa.

Day 11: Acclimatization

You can go to Manaslu Base Camp which will take about 3 hours to reach if you want. Then you’ll return to Sama Gaon again which takes about 2 hours. Otherwise You’ll spend the entire day in Sama Gaon.

Day 12: Sama Gaon to Samdo

From Sama Gompa, a little further up is Samdo, the pleasant forest residing near the border of Tibet. Here we take out our cameras and shoot some nice pictures of the mountains surrounding us. Enjoy the day resting.

Day 13: Samdo to Dharmasala

What was once a mighty river now dwindles to a stream, and we ascent up this BuriGandaki stream to Sumdu, probably the last thriving village on our trail. Next is some sort of a ruined marketplace called Larkya Bazaar. And further up at an altitude of 4450m, we hit the Larkya Lodge, aka the Dharmasala for travelers to rest.

Day 14: Dharmasala-Cross Larkya la pass and trek to Bhimtang

The next day, we ascent up Dharmasala, hitting an ablation valley presenting stunning views of the Larkya Peak. The trail gets steep, as we move up through the moraines to the Larkya La pass, where we can capture incredible pictures of Annapurna II, Cheo Himal, Himlung Himal among other snowcapped mountains. Walking though snow and moraines, we reach the lovely forest area of Tanbuche. A descent now, and we reach Bimthang, an ablation valley composed of nothing but abandoned homes and Buddhist prayer rocks.

Day 15: Bhimtang to Goa

We descend towards Goa from here. The south horizon is impressive with the Manaslu in the east and Annapurna II in the west. Further down, we follow our trail through a bridge at Dudh Khola, trek through the blossom of rhododendron flowers, leave Karche in our wake, submit to a checking at Thonje village, cross Marsyangdi river, join other trekkers of the Annapurna circuit, and rest at Goa.

Day 16: Goa to Tal

What once used to be a pristine lake now has faded away leaving a beautiful valley. Tal, once a lake, is now a village. We will be trekking from Goa to Tal village.

Day 17: Tal to Ghermu Phant

From Tal, our long route takes us through steep valley sides of the Himalayan range, tucked between the Manaslu and Annapurna range. We stop at Ghermu Phant.

Day 18: Ghermu Phant to Bhulbhule and drive to Besisahar

A suspension bridge will get us to the east bank of Marsyangdi Khola, Then, there’s this short climb up to Bahundanda, a climb down to Ngadi, and then to the paddy fields of Bulebhule. From Bhulebhule, the trail becomes easy, with no hills and steep landscapes, as we move toBesisahar.

Day 19: Drive back to Kathmandu

Sit back, and enjoy a “7 hours long” ride back to Kathmandu, where you can spend the rest of the day in leisure or do last minute shopping until your next day depature.

I have just returned from the most remarkable trip of a lifetime to Everest Basecamp. I don’t usually write reviews however on this occasion I feel the need to share my experiences which I hope will inspire others to travel and to book a trip with Namaste Nomad. I booked this trip in Jan 18 after meeting with Mohan. After my initial meeting I had no doubts in travelling with Mohan and his team. Mohan is an exceptional person who is so passionate about his business and works so hard to ensure everyone meets their goal and has an amazing trip. Everest Basecamp was everything I imagined and much more. The views are breathtaking and the sense of achievement on arriving at Basecamp is so hard to put into words. The trip is a life changing experience as you learn so much about yourself and indeed about others. It really was a journey from the time of booking until we returned home from the Himalayas. I found it very challenging physically, mentally and emotionally but that’s what made it so very special. Throughout the trek Mohan was so attentive to our every need, every decision he made was the right one and his motivation and encouragement ensured we all made it successfully to Basecamp. Mohan’s knowledge of Nepal and the Himalayas is exceptional. Everything from planning the food to gauging the weather to recognising signs when some of us weren’t too well was spot on If you are considering a trek then I can honestly say that you will not get anyone better to travel with than Namaste Nomad. The team of Sherpas and Porters are incredible and the bond made with the Sherpas is one I will never forget, it really was incredible. As for value for money you will not get a more competitive price as I priced several others which were significantly more costly than Namaste Nomad Overall if you want a challenging and life changing experience then I encourage you to make that adventure with Namaste Nomad and I guarantee you will not regret it Thanks to Mohan and his team for everything, I will never forget it. Xx

Everest Basecamp

I went to India and Ladakh with Namaste Nomad two years ago. I absolutely loved it, particularly the Himalayas. I therefore challenged myself to trek to Everest Base Camp with them. I did this last year and I can truthfully say that it was one of the most wonderful things I have ever done in my life. I am in my sixties, but the care and attention given me made everything not only manageable but immensely enjoyable. I've now signed up to climb Island Peak with Mohan and the team - my first serious Himalayan mountain. It's a prospect that fills me with a mixture of great excitement and a healthy dose of fear - but I know that I am in the safest of hands. Mohan and the team are watching you every step of the way. Safety is their number one priority, but they manage to make every trek great fun too. Bring it on!

This was the second trip I booked with Namaste Nomad. The first was hiking to Everest Base Camp which was a phenomenal trip! I placed a deposit on Bhutan before I left Nepal due to the shear genuineness of Mohan. He is very thorough in ensuring a safe and successful trip. In Bhutan he was open to group needs and used this information to organize alternative to the original plans. The group I was with had great communication between so that we could make choices that benefitted all of us. If you are thinking of traveling abroad and you love realism in your travels this is the company to book with. You will get the chance to see everyday life in your travels vs sitting on a tour bus skipping the realities of life outside.

I am a professor at George Mason University. Namaste Nomad arranged our study abroad trip to Nepal (Conservation Storytelling). We had used another company the year before and have spent many years in Nepal. This company out performs anyone else in Nepal and anywhere globally. Mohan (the CEO) is extraordinarily knowledgable and works very hard to make sure everything is exactly as you need. The people that work for him are the absolute best available in country. Our guide had led multiple tours up Everest and I 100% trusted him with our lives. Our drivers were the same. In addition, Mohan cares very much about the world, the environment and the ability to share cultures and beliefs. And this is how his company is run. With responsibility and heart.

Great for Student Learning Trip!

Thank you, Namaste Nomad and Mohan, for an epic trekking experience of a lifetime to the Everest Base Camp (EBC). The planning process was straightforward with timely and accurate communication from Mohan. He was quick to answer our questions which inspired great confidence in the company. We knew that we were in good hands. Mohan and his team made every effort to ensure that we were all safe and that everyone achieved their goals of reaching EBC. He documented the trip along the way and posted photos and stories on social media, which was comforting, enjoyable, and informative for family and friends at home. The food is clean, healthy and delicious, and was carefully prepared to provide perfect fuel for our bodies throughout the trek. The company is also very eco-friendly as they bring all plastics and rubbish down the mountain for recycling. While we were enjoying the amazing Himalayas of Nepal, Mohan and his team expertly handled the daily logistics of travel and lodging. Mohan’s familiarity with the region and its ever-changing weather patterns paid off as he was able to adjust our daily treks to maximize the experience and breath-taking views of the Himalayas. He always had a Plan B! And, a big shout-out to the Sherpas who are all skillful climbers and very friendly. The company provides duffle bags for the trekkers which helps ensure that the Sherpas only carry up to 48.5 lbs. each! Namaste Nomad truly cares about their clients and ensures that they get the most out of world-class trek. Highly recommended!

Trek of a Lifetime

I recently traveled to Nepal with Namaste Nomad to climb Mera Peak. This trip was an absolute amazing life experience for me. Mohan arranged everything from flights to accommodation to food and everything in between. His local knowledge was invaluable especially in Kathmandu where he even got our money changed to ensure we received the best rate. The trek itself could not have been better for acclimatisation. It’s a slightly longer route than some but gives you the best chance of summiting. Our 2 Sherpas could not have done more. They treated us like family and not just clients. They did everything they could to give us the best chance at summiting .. which the whole group did. I would definitely use NN for an future treks in the Himalayas. 10 out of 10!!

My husband and I found out about Namaste Nomad while on a hike in Ireland the year before. We stayed in connect with Mohan and planned going on the Island Peak trek. Being in the USA, all our communication was by email and Mohan answered all of our questions so we felt ready when we flew to Nepal. The trek was incredible. No stress. Mohan dealt with accommodations in Kathmandu and in the Everest Circuit, food the entire trek, flights to and from Lukla, and taxis from the airport. He gave great advice on the hike up, like avoiding dairy and meat and keeping a constant steady pace, so we didn't get sick or hurt before summit day. He was concerned about our well being and wanted us to make it to the summit and be happy as much as we wanted to. His sherpas were incredible men. Humble, sweet, and considerate. You can trust your guides and you will make a great friend at the same time.
