Manaslu Circuit Trek

Two guys planning to walk the Manaslu Circuit with Tsum Valley, leaving Kathmandu the morning of the 23rd Nov.
Likely finish around 13th-14th.

If anybody would like to join they are more than welcome.

We are getting a guide only (mandatory for Manaslu), so costs could be split.

Rough plan (will likely change):
23rd: Drive Kathmandu – Soti Khola via Arughat, possibly walk to Liding <1hr

24th: Soti Khola/Liding – Khorlabeshi (just past Macchakhorla) 6.5hr

25th: Khorlabeshi – Salleri via Jagat, possibly continue to Philim if time

27th: Chumling – Chhokang Paro, 6hr

28th: Chhokang Paro – Mu Gompa, 6hr

29th: Puja ceremony AM & climb valley, then walk Mu Gompa – Lamagaon or Lar, 3hr approx

30th: Lamagaon/Lar – Chumling, 7hr approx

1st: Chumling – Deng, 6hr (alternative stay Pewa, 1hr before)

2nd: Deng – Namrung, 6.5hr (alternative Pewa-Ghap)

3rd: Namrung – Lho, 4hr

4th: Lho – Sama via Pung Gyen (Pungyen) Gompa, 6-7hr

5th: Acclimatisation in Sama, visit Manaslu Basecamp + Birendra Lake, 7.5hr

6th: Sama – Samdo, 3hr

7th: Acclimatisation in Samdo. Walk towards Lajyung (5120m) or Gyala Bhanjyang Pass

8th: Samdo – Dharamsala (Larke Phedi), 2hr

9th: Daramsala – Larkye Pass – Bimthang, 8hr

10th: Bimthang – Gho (Gowa), alt accom: Sukri

  1. Hi Sam,

    How are your plans shaping? Do you have a guide yet? I am currently in KTM/ Nepal and interested in doing Manaslu and Tsum trek.

    I am interested in joining and can find a guide here if need be.
    Message me your plans and we can chat.

    Thanks!

    • Hi Renee, Have you arranged your guide trek yet?

      I would like to do Manaslu and Tsum Valley – I believe approx 16/17 days. I am flexible on time! I fairly fit and have trekked other regions of Nepal before. But last time I took it slowly.

  2. Sorry for late response, my flight is booked to arrive 21st, so a 23rd start date is good, not yet had much luck on the guide side yet.
