Suitability of the Trek:  

 

Most of the trekking routes in Nepal are appropriate for a range of fitness and can have amazing experience in all routes. You don't have to be capable of scaling Manaslu Circuit to enjoy Nepal's outdoor pursuits. However, some treks are challenging, it may be due to long trekking hours, cold temperature, and high altitude. Although the region has lots of development in recent years, the expansion of infrastructure for trekkers is more extensive, it's still a remote place. 

 

Crossing the 5106m, Larkya pass can be especially challenging as it is usually covered with snow. The Manaslu Circuit is considered one of the best treks in Nepal, so any hardships faced on the way are likely to be worth it.

When is the Best season for trekking in Manaslu Region?

Winter

December to February are the coldest months to trek, with the shortest days and the fewest people. There is often a lot of snow on the ground, especially above Chumling, and getting to the Destination can sometimes be very difficult or impossible. Many of the higher villages are abandoned for the winter.

Spring

March, April, and May are some of the busier months and for good reason. The days are getting warmer, the weather is mostly stable and the climbing season is in full swing. It really is an amazing sight from Machhakhola. In the lower valleys, the flowers are blooming on the Rhododendrons and the terraced fields turn green with new shoots of vegetables.

Summer

From June to August the summer monsoons bring rain and snow. There are fewer visitors during these months, although some of the most beautiful, warm, blue-skied days occur now. Usually, by the afternoon, there is a rainstorm or snow higher up.

Autumn

This is the most popular time to visit the Manaslu and Tsum Valley. September through November is a time of steady weather patterns, less precipitation, and cleaner air. The lodges are full and everyone is friendly. If you enjoy meeting new friends, want the best chance for great weather and don’t mind an empty, this is the best trekking season.
