Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of those undiscovered trekking journeys, which despite being not so popular has quite a bit of potential. It would not be an exaggeration to say that it’s a hidden gem. Manaslu Circuit Trek touches the Annapurna region, and without a doubt, it is a beautiful trek, allowing you to enjoy the views of the magnificent mountains of western Nepal. It is a balanced trek that doesn’t just have attractive elements but also offers the trekkers a decent challenge. This trek is meant for adventure enthusiasts who seek both the features on a trekking trip.

Magical Manaslu Circuit Trek 

Manaslu Circuit trek is an 18 days long journey and during this time, you cover places such as Syange, Dharapani, Samagaon, and so on. Manaslu Circuit Trek Nepal is also simply known as Manaslu trek. All these villages that you get to visit on the trek are gifted naturally, as they are situated on the lap of the Himalayas. You will not just be offered excellent accommodation and food services here, but also you get to know quite a bit about the cultures followed here.

Considering just the base route, the Manaslu Circuit trek distance happens to be 177 km. The trek starts from Soti Khola and ends at Syange. Of course, the length would increase significantly if you choose to include side treks on the main trip. The two major side trek options are the Tsum Valley and Manaslu Base Camp. While the former one takes you on a religious trip to Tsum Valley, which is said to have been visited by Guru Milarepa hundreds of years ago, and the latter one takes you to the base camp of the Mt. Manaslu, the eighth highest peak in the world.

Manaslu Circuit trek route is a part of the Manaslu Conservation Area, which is one of the richest protected areas of Nepal. It is rich in terms of flora and fauna and is home to so many other natural spectacles like the mountains, lakes, high altitude passes, and so on. When you walk on the route and visit the different villages, you realize that the region is impacted significantly by Buddhism. Since the region has its borders touching Tibet, you will also find the people here following Bon Po. All in all, the Manaslu Circuit Trek is a wonderful journey.

Manaslu Circuit And Tsum Valley Trek

Tsum Valley is an excellent addition to the Manaslu Circuit Trek. By adding a couple of days to your Manaslu Circuit Trek itinerary you could cover Tsum Valley entirely. The valley is known for being religiously significant for the followers of Tibetan Buddhism. The major attraction of the valley is Mu Gompa. Also, on your side trek, you will get the chance to explore Milarepa Caves. You can approach Tsum Valley trek as an independent trek, or you could approach it as a side one. The latter allows you to explore more attractions and cover the entire Manaslu Circuit.

Manaslu Circuit Trek Cost

The cost of a trekking journey depends on a lot of factors such as the length of the journey, the area covered, the level of luxury offered when it comes to food and accommodation, and most importantly, the nature of the travel agency. International travel agencies tend to charge higher than the local ones. Considering all these aspects, the Manaslu Circuit trek cost can range between $1799 and $2700 per person. Keep in mind that the cost of the trip might also vary depending on the side treks that you choose to include in your main itinerary. It is quite an affordable trip.

Manaslu Trek Vs Annapurna Circuit

Annapurna Circuit Trek or Everest Base Camp Trek for that matter is more popular among trekkers because it doesn’t just offer natural spectacles to the trekkers but also religious and cultural. When it comes to Manaslu trek, it is no different. Manaslu Circuit trek takes you through a rich conservation area, through villages that are aesthetically stunning, and a base camp, from where you can be close to the mountains. In no way Manaslu trek is inferior to other more popular treks in the country like Annapurna Circuit Trek and Everest Base Camp trek.

You could attempt the Manaslu Circuit trek by either walking on just the base route, or by adding a few attractions that are not on the main route to your core itinerary. Without a doubt, the second option is the better one, but keep in mind that all these additional features also bring added challenges. A wonderful feature of this trip is that you also get to explore parts of the Annapurna Circuit trek or the Annapurna region on the journey. If you’re a trekking enthusiast who is looking for an adventurous trekking venture, Manaslu Circuit Trek will be a great choice for you.

FAQ

What is Acclimatization? Is it important to acclimitized?

To enable all trekking & expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our trekking & expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. Yes it is very important for all trekkers and climbers because this will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.

What kind of personal first aid should i carry while trekking or Expedition in Nepal?

Although our guides from Great Nepal Treks carry first aid medical kit, it is better to carry a supply of first aid items for your own personal use according to your health conditions. Here are the list of some general as well as some special medications you may require:
– Antiseptic cream (Betadine)
– Sunblock SPF 30+
– Throat lozenges
– Painkillers and anti-inflammatory such as Aspirin, Paracetamol, Ibuprofen etc.
– Band-aids, bandage, compression bandage and ‘Second Skin’ for blisters
– Re-hydration salts. (Trioral, Electrobin, Oral Rehydrating Salt)
– Dextrose glucose tablets
– Water treatment tablets
– Your prescription medications
– Antibiotics for longer climbing and expedition style trips

Does high altitude effect and benefits?

You will be affected by high altitude problems if it is your fist trip at a high altitude. The altitude has some important beneficial effects on the human body and your trips have been designed to enable these. Please familiarize yourself with the information on AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) and understand how to avoid it and read on benefits of high altitude and take advantage of these to improve your body’s metabolism.

What is Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS)

Altitude sickness is the reaction of the body adjusting to decreasing amounts of oxygen. The high altitude slowly decreases the flow of oxygen means the higher you climb, the flow of oxygen is very thin resulting the malfunction of body. Altitude sickness most commonly occurs from above 2,800 meters (9,200ft) but this is different for everyone – there is simply no way of knowing your own susceptibility prior to being at altitude thus it is vital for you to monitor your own health. AMS occurs when the body is unable to adopt at the higher altitude having less amount of oxygen. At an altitude of 5490m (18000 ft.), the oxygen availability becomes just the half of the availability at sea level. While only a third of oxygen is available at the summit of Mt. Everest. Symptoms may be mild and subside/go away after a day’s rest, or if it is ignored it could lead to death.

What are the symptoms of AMS?

Symptoms can appear within 1-2 hours although most often appear 6-10 hours after ascent and generally subside in 1-2 days as the body adjusts to altitude. They may reappear as you continue to go higher. Symptoms of AMS usually occur gradually and can be one or a combination of the following:
• Headache: Due to the less amount of oxygen in air, the blood influences the blood vessels to spread wide in order to supply more oxygen to the brain and which cause them to show the early symptom of AMS.
• Dopiness: The trekkers or climbers feel very sleepy but could not.
• Shortness of breath: The breathing pattern changes as the breathing becomes faster and deeper than normal in order to get enough oxygen and rapid pulse
• Loss of appetite and nausea: Despite of physical exercise, the trekkers don’t have an appetite to eat.

What are the Life threatening forms of AMS?

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE)
If one accumulates of fluid in the lungs and mild fever then, there is a chance of High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE). The filling of fluid in the lungs is Pulmonary Edema. The fluid blocks the passage of fresh oxygen to get into the lungs which causes the shortage of oxygen. Though the exact reason for the HAPE has not been identified, scientists think that pressure of blood vessel around the lungs is directly proportional to the altitude. As a result the smaller blood vessels leak allowing the fluid to escape to the lungs. The treatment for the HAPE victims is to give the oxygen at the rate of 4 liters a minute, using Portable Altitude Chamber (PAC). In case of unavailability of PAC bag or oxygen, one is taken down to the low altitude which is the only way of life-saving. HAPE can also lead to unconsciousness which may also results to death in a short period of time.

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE)
HACE is the accumulation of fluid in the brain due of the swollen blood vessels to the brain. HACE is also seen within a couple of hours and can send the patient to coma and take his/her life in just few hours likewise to HAPE. The excessive flow of blood to the brain due to the low-level oxygen causes vasodilation which eventually leads to leakage of blood vessels to the brain. A 4 to 8mg of dexamethasone is given as a first dose to those who suffer from such sickness and then 4mg Diamox is given an every six hours gap. Similarly, 2-4 liters/minute oxygen is given and one is taken to down if it is necessary.

What are the Symptoms of HAPE?

Breathlessness
– A dry cough, developing to a wet one with blood-tinged discharge or saliva
– Tightness in the chest & blueness/darkness of face, lips & tongue
– Low fever up to 38°C/100°F
– Severe fatigue, progressing to coma

What are the Symptoms of HACE?

– Severe headache symptoms not relieved by painkillers or lying down
– Confusion, disorientation & drowsiness
– Nausea/vomiting
– Loss of balance or coordination
– Blurred or double vision/retinal hemorrhage

How to Prevent Altitude Sickness?

Certain medical conditions (such as respiratory disease) or medications (such as sleeping pills) can increase the risk of altitude sickness – it is important that you inform your guide of any medical conditions or medications before ascending to altitude. You can help your body to acclimatize and avoid altitude sickness by:
– Avoiding alcohol, tobacco and substances that can interfere with good delivery of oxygen to the body or cause dehydration
– Eating small, frequent meals high in carbohydrates
– Drinking plenty of water – the test of sufficient amount of water intake is ability to urinate colorless urine
– Taking it easy or have a rest. Walk at a slower pace than you would at sea level and avoid over-exertion
– Climb the mountain gradually and stop for a day or two of rest for every 600m/2000ft above 2,400m/8000ft
– Climb high but Sleep at a lower altitude if possible
– Learn how to recognize early symptoms of mountain sickness
Since our Guides from Great Nepal Treks are very professional and well trained about altitude sickness, they will guide you during your trekking and expedition activities in Nepal.

What are the basic treatment of Altitude sickness?

Most travelers are able to successfully acclimatize by following the previously mentioned guidelines. However, there are instances where medical treatment is required. Ultimately, the best treatment for acute mountain sickness (AMS) is to descend to a lower altitude and rest. Early diagnosis is important. Acute mountain sickness is easier to treat in the early stages. The guide will monitor you all the time for symptoms and will pace you appropriately to minimize your exposure to AMS.Cooperating with the guide and reporting if any of the above-described symptoms are seen allows your guide to undertaking appropriate and timely action to minimize your exposure to AMS. Sufficient time for acclimatization (After 3000 meters) is also another method to minimize AMS. Following precautions can be done in order to get rid of AMS:
Don’t ascent up rapidly.
• Never use alcohol, sleeping pills and smoking.
• Drink more fluid 3-4 liters a day, clean boiled water / tea / coffee / soup / juice etc.
• Climb high and sleep low.
• Don’t go trekking alone, take guide/porter.
• Follow the advice from your guide, hotel, local people, guidebook.
• Descent if mild symptoms rapidly getting worse.
• Never leave or descent sick person along.
• Avoid getting cold.
• Take an easy and comfortable trekking route even if it is longer.
• Sleep more than normal.
Your Guide will carry some medications in First Aid Kit and may suggest for medication such as Ibuprofen, Paracetamol, combination of them or specific AMS medication. Standard and effective medication for prevention of AMS is Acetazolamide (Diamox) and it may be given to help improve breathing and reduce mild symptoms. This drug can cause increased urination. Ensure you drink plenty of fluids and avoid alcohol when taking this drug.With severe cases of AMS, our guide will contact our office in Kathmandu and arrange your evacuation by helicopter. Before we accept you on the trek we will require that you purchase health and travel insurance including helicopter rescue and hospitalization.

How GNTE handle you during the case of emergency?

For evacuation, we require the name of the sick person and the exact location from where helicopter can airlift you. You should not leave the place after calling Helicopter for evacuation though you are feeling better than before.

How to get safe drinking water during trekking and Expedition in Nepal?

On the trek, there is a facility of purchasing safe drinking water in teahouses.It is better if you carry the water purifying pills on your own. On camping trek, the water will be treated with Potassium permanganate or Iodine. On the trail, water from the streams is safe to drink, but better not to use it directly for drinking.
