Background

Manaslu short trek is the short version of the actual Manaslu Trekking. Those of you who have limited time on their hand can try the Manaslu Short Trek. For hikers who prefer fewer hikers and are constrained by time, the Short Manaslu Trek is the ideal trail. Because to the nature, isolation, and restricted area, this trek is isolated. For example, a special permit is needed to complete the Manaslu Circuit Trek, the Tsum Valley Trek, or any other trek in the Manaslu region.

What’s More

Trekkers will be able to realize their ambition of traveling the most desirable track in a short amount of time with the aid of the short Manaslu Trek, which is only an 8-day journey from Soti Khola to Dharapani and takes us to the highest Larkye La Pass (5123m), glacier, Mountains, rivers, etc. Also, extending the plan by one day will enable us to visit Manaslu Base Camp (4900m).

Due to its wildness and additional special requirements set by the Nepalese government, the Manaslu trail is infrequently used. Because of this, the Manaslu journey is less traveled and has a new trail, although it is doable for all hikers.

The Manaslu trip also features two eight thousand (ers), Larkye Pass, as well as two conservation zones simultaneously, namely the Annapurna Conservation Area and the Manaslu Conservation Area.

The Manaslu Short Trek is a great option for those looking to experience the beauty of the Manaslu region of Nepal, but with limited time. The trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Arughat, followed by a hike from Soti Khola to Machha Khola, crossing a suspension bridge over the Budi Gandaki River.

The trek takes you through charming villages, lush forests, and across the Larkya La Pass, which offers stunning panoramic views of the Himalayas, including Himlung Himal and Annapurna II. Along the way, you can also visit the serene Birendra Lake and stay at cozy tea houses, providing a comfortable resting place after a day of trekking. The Manaslu Circuit Short Trek is a perfect way to experience the beauty of the Manaslu region in a shorter amount of time.
