Manaslu Circuit trekking is for those who have guts. Courageous people are rewarded and this trekking will reward you with the view of almost all the natural beauties that existence can offer from its coffer to single destination.

In reality, Manaslu Circuit Trekking is something more than natural beauty. The site portrays the true picture of Tibetan Buddhism. The site is rich in its unique culture and traditions which the people are following from generation to generation. In this regard, remoteness of the area surfaced as a blessing because here there is no sign of cross-cultural impact.

The suspension bridge, wooden bridge, winding rivers, lush vegetation, blooming rhododendrons, waterfalls, snow-capped peaks, Buddhist religion and their culture will spellbind you.

Moreover, you will get an opportunity to view one of the eight-thousanders while on this trek—Mount Manaslu—8,163m. It is also known as ‘Mountain of the Spirit’. Mount Manaslu comes under Mansiri range. Besides, you will also see more than 10 peaks of over 6,500m in this trek.

Japanese Citizen Toshio Imanishi was the first to climb Mount Manaslu. He stepped in the peak of the mountain in 1956. He was assisted by GyalzenNorbu Sherpa.

Manaslu circuit & Tsum valley trek


Approached Info Nepal Trek and Expedition travel agency to arrange permits and transport for the Manaslu circuit and Tsum valley trek. The problem was that my trekking partner was at Pokhara and I was at Kathmandu. Raju, an agent of this agency (together with an agent in Pokhara), perfectly sorted the mess and my trekking partner and I were on our way to the trek by the next day (took less than half a day to issue the permits). Permits fee was completely fair. Raju was very caring and cooperative as he checked with me every several days to verify everything is ok and all is according to plan.

To conclude, I had a very good experience with Raju and Info Nepal Trek and Expedition travel agency and I definitely recommend using the services of this agency.

We did the manaslu-trekking a few days ago and Raju and his brothers were amazing! They did a really good job in organization. We had a lot of questions but they always answered super quick and they made everything possible. Staying in Kathmandu was included, transport to pokhara afterwards as well and they even organized that we got our luggage from Kathmandu to pokhara. Everything went really perfect. Our guide was absolutely lovely.

The trek itself is hard but worth it. Be aware that there is no comfort / hygiency, but it isn't crowded by tourists as well:) that's what we wanted!

Thank you so much, Raju, you did a perfect job!

Thank you!


11 days Manaslu Trek was a beautiful adventure that was worth the pain (it was my First Trekking Tour - so very exhausting).

Lovely Raju and his Team just organized everything for us - and that very spontanous: stay in kathmandu, permissions, trek, what we need, and that our bags are in pokhara after the trek! Our Guide Gopal was great - super helpful, funny and very patient with us girls.

Good Price for a great experience!
