5 Things You want to Know For Manaslu Trek

We’ll provide a brief overview of the items that should be taken into account in order to be safe when hiking the Manaslu in this post. 

Though a mild trip, the off-beaten road Manaslu Circuit trip passes through various rocky paths and desolate areas. Because foreigners need to secure a special trekking permit in order to reach the Manaslu, this journey is commonly referred to as restricted area trekking.

The Manaslu Trek highlights the uncharted and isolated regions of the Manaslu region, which are usually associated with Tibetan geology and culture. 

Narrow and Rugged Paths

The Manaslu Trek is a less traveled route. It has several rough and narrow trails. Once the journey starts, hikers follow winding, narrow paths that come to an end when the walk is over. You cannot avoid running into these kinds of situations in various locations throughout the walk. When traversing it, you have to be mindful of the possibility of donkeys and ponies approaching from both directions. Give way to donkeys if you notice them approaching from the other direction. You can tragically drown if something goes wrong and fall into the Budhigandaki River.

Places Prone to Landslides

Naturally, there is a possibility of landslides pursuing you if you walk on hillsides or mountainsides. Similarly, you run the danger of it when you hike Manaslu. I don’t mean to scare you, but the Himalayas, and indeed all of Nepal, are among the most earthquake-prone regions in the world, with landslides frequently occurring on the steep slopes. An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck Nepal in 2015, leaving about 10,000 people dead. It caused an avalanche on Langtang and Mount Everest, killing 250 additional people in Langtang and 21 trekkers on Everest Base Camp Trek. Thus, be mindful of it.

Weather Forecasting

In the Himalaya, the weather is erratic. However, spring (March through May) and fall (September through November) are regarded as the ideal trekking seasons in Nepal. The sky typically clears at this time, and it’s likely that the Himalayas won’t get any rain. The ideal season to hike in Nepal should be chosen, if at all possible.

Be careful while crossing the suspension bridges

Throughout the walk, hikers will traverse multiple suspension bridges. There are numerous locations with rather sturdy bridges. But there are also a number of bridges that appear to be shaky. Should you trip and fall off the bridge, you could suffer severe injuries or tragically lose your life. 

Crossing the Larkya Pass (5200 m)

One of Nepal’s highest passes, Manaslu Circuit With Larkya La Pass is more than 5200 meters above sea level. It is also well-known for its unexpected snowstorms. It takes about nine hours to get there from Larkya Phedi and is the highest point of the Manaslu journey. The primary difficulty in traversing the Larkya Pass is high altitude sickness. Even if it’s not very sharp, it keeps going. Prepare yourself both psychologically and physically to traverse Larkya Pass.
