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.

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!

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.

I travelled with a group from Ireland to Nepal where we started our joureny to Everest Basecamp. This trek was very special to me as I was doing it for charity in memory of my late brother who was a keen hillwalker. Our group was made up of 9 people from Ireland, Scotland and USA. Such a fantastic group it turned out to be. We all supported each other and made new friends, having alot of fun along the way. Oh From start to finish Mohan our leader, did everything in his power to ensure that our trek was 100% successful. The trip was very challenging but very rewarding. He supported us all even when we were struggling and was there at our beck and call at all times. I would like to give a special mention to the 3 sherpas who accompanied us during our trek, Tshering, Pimba and Paldene. Such fantastic support to all of us and true gentlemen. I would highly recommend this group for anybody contemplating a similar experience.

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!!

I travelled to Nepal with Namaste Nomad in March 2018 to trek in Langtang Valley. There were eleven in the group, along with Mohan, our guide. We spent a few days in Kathmandu to acclimatise. We visited three Unesco Heritage sites in the city. Then the trek began- an eight hour bus journey to the start of our adventure.. We trekked for eight days in the are which had been devastated by the earthquake in 2015. The trek was exhilarating, sometimes challenging- Mohan reminded us that we were in the Himalayas- always an adventure! He knew what we needed/wanted before we did! The team of sherpas and trainees were really excellent- they sorted our luggage every day... even checking under the beds in case we left anything behind; they cooked our delicious meals & served us- some of us are still dreaming of Dhal Bhat😋! They were at our side before we knew we needed a hand up or down loose rock🙄! After seven days trekking we returned to Kathmandu to wind down. It was a great experience, made special by the attention to detail of Mohan- a birthday party 🎉, a St Patrick's Day celebration to name a few. What a trip! I recommend Namaste Nomad unreservedly & will travel with Mohan again!

October 2016 Everest Base Camp... I went with Namaste Nomad having looked at other companies based in Ireland doing the same trek. Mohan was always available to answer questions. He himself has trekked to EBC lots of times which is reflected in his knowledge and experience. He employs Sherpa's (and pays them a fair wage !) whom are also very experienced trekkers and some have summited Everest !! they are very in-tuned into the needs (inc health needs, signs & symptoms of altitude sickness), informing us of the different peaks and opening to talking about their experiences summiting mount Everest. The weather was not in our favour for part of the trek. One morning...at 4am the cloud finally lifted; Mohan came and woke us all to share our first glance of mount Everest it was amazing. It is a well worn track to EBC and the key is to take it slowly and enjoy...live in the moment! Mohan always ensured we ate well, drank plenty of clean water & paid attention to everyone on the trek to ensure we remained healthy & safe in order to reach EBC. Mohan had arrange some touristy stuff in Kathmandu before our departure to Lukla...which was great and an opportunity to meet and get to know the group. I would recommend Mohan and his company Namaste Nomad !! I have subsequently booked a trip to Bhutan with Namaste Nomad :)

Did the errigal sunrise hike. We didnt see the sun because of the mist and the Rain, but is was still a very beautiful trip to the top. Had a great guide (Malachy thanks again) and the trip was well organized by Mohan.

I recently returned from a thoroughly enjoyable trek to EBC and Kalapathar. The trip was beyond amazing and a life changing experience. This was all made possible, largely due to our highly organised and very knowledgable Leader Mohan (and his team of local Sherpas and Porters) who educated us on all aspects of life in Nepal including environmental issues which he is very passionate about. Mohan’s attention to detail was second to none, ensuring everyone stayed healthy and safe, while also thoroughly enjoying ourselves. This is the trip of a lifetime with breathtaking views and such cheerful and welcoming locals. We had a fantastic group that supported one another throughout and the craic was brilliant. I would highly recommend travelling with this company and I for one, can’t wait here for my next trekking adventure with them. Thank you Mohan.
