Manaslu and Annapurna location

Mount Manaslu is the eighth-highest mountain in the world, located 170 kilometers (106 miles) west of the capital city, Kathmandu, and approximately 64 kilometers (40 miles) east of Pokhara. During the Manaslu circuit trek part, you will traverse around this mountain within the Manaslu Conservation Area. It is also a restricted area in Nepal. 

Mount Annapurna is the tenth-highest mountain in the world. It is located approximately 200 kilometers (124 miles) west of Kathmandu and 30 kilometers (19 miles) north of Pokhara. Following the Annapurna circuit trail, you will travel inside the Annapurna Conservation Area and also touch the lower Mustang section while trekking from Muktinath to Jomsom.

Mount Manaslu and Mount Annapurna both are located in the western part of the Himalayas, so they are close to each other in terms of geographical distance. Mt. Annapurna is located 40 to 50 kilometers (25 to 31 miles) east of Mt. Manaslu.

Compared to the Annapurna circuit, the Manaslu circuit trail is offbeat and secluded. The Annapurna circuit trail is much more famous and has better tourist infrastructure. Both circuit treks are challenging and offer excellent trekking experiences.

Cross two high passes- Larkya La and Thorong La

Larkya La and Thorong La are two 5,000 meters above mountain passes in Manaslu and Annapurna regions, respectively. Both passes are very famous, and crossing them is quite challenging because of the steep, rugged trail. During the Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek, you will cross both passes. It will not be easy, but the reward you will get is unmatched.

The typical day during the Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek

Your typical day during the Manaslu circuit trek with the Annapurna circuit looks like this- you will wake up early and have a warm breakfast of your choice. We will leave the village around 9:00 AM and begin trekking towards our next destination. On the way, we will have lunch and take frequent water breaks. 

We will have dinner and breakfast in the same tea house we will spend the night. It is etiquette to have dinner and breakfast at the same place you spend the night in the mountains. The guide will help you interact with locals and brief you about the villages. You will spend quality time in the dining room of the tea houses every night, interacting with fellow trekkers.

Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek difficulty & altitude sickness

The Manaslu and Annapurna circuit trek is moderate to challenging trekking packages in Nepal. Because you will trek in remote areas, the terrain gets steep and offbeat frequently, and the trek crosses two high mountain passes. Likewise, the tourist infrastructure is very limited until you transition to the Annapurna circuit trail. 

The Manaslu circuit trek with Annapurna circuit is for true adventurers who are up for real Himalayan challenges. This trek will test your strength, endurance, and mental resilience. You will definitely push your limits and go out of your comfort zone. You have to be strong with previous trekking experience to do Manaslu Annapurna circuit trekking.

  • Daily trekking hours: On average the daily trekking hours during the Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek is 6. You will cover 9 to 11 kilometers on a daily basis. Some days are shorter, whereas while crossing the two passes, you have to walk over 15 kilometers a day. 
  • Altitude sickness and symptoms: The Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek 24 days brings you above 5,000 meters multiple times. Every day the elevation rises until you reach the top of either pass and descend. So, there is a risk of altitude sickness on this trek. However, you do not have to worry about it because our itinerary is designed to provide you ample time to rest and acclimatize. You will get used to the elevation without even realizing, and if you feel any discomfort, inform our guide. These are some of the symptoms of altitude sickness that you should be aware of- headache, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, difficulty in breathing, loss of appetite, etc. 
  • Preventive measures: You have to be careful and follow the advice to avoid altitude sickness during the Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek. First of all, keep yourself hydrated. Drink 2 liters of water daily and consume other fluids. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Do not rush and tire yourself quickly. You have to maintain your pace. Likewise, get lots of sleep and have lots of good food. 
  • Trek preparation: The trek preparation includes training yourself physically, understanding the limitations of the Manaslu and Annapurna region to set the right facility expectations along the trail, and packing the right and needed things.

Food and accommodation during the trek

The Manaslu Annapurna circuit is a teahouse trek. The accommodation during the trek will be simple. Rooms are booked twin-shared, so if you need a single room, let us know ahead. Likewise, single rooms are not available in some places like Dharamsala and Thorong Phedi. So, you have to adjust in some villages along the trail.

The rooms are small but clean and cozy. You will get a fresh pillow and blanket. Likewise, there will not be much furniture in the room, rather a table and beds. You will get a private washroom in some places, whereas it is common in most tea houses. Carry all the toiletry essentials, including toilet paper, hand soap, etc.

  • Internet: WiFi is available in some villages at the lower altitudes. Nepali sim will be much more handy, so get one with an ample data plan. You will not get a network throughout the trail. Get ready to go off-grid as you begin to touch the upper elevation. 
  • Charging: As electricity is a limited resource in the mountain, you have to pay USD 2 to USD 3 for every pinpoint. For a long trek like this, we highly recommend purchasing a solar charger and keeping power banks and extra batteries for backup. 
  • Hot showers: Hot showers are available in some places. Do not expect it at higher elevations. You have to pay some money to get the service. It's best to carry ample wet tissues and body wipes for the journey to Himalayas. 
  • Drinking water: Boiled drinking water is available in all the tea houses. Some places may charge you a few bucks. Avoid drinking water directly from the tap or stream. You may get indigestion. Use water purification tablets to double-purify it.

Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek best time

The best time to do the Manaslu Annapurna circuit trekking is during spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). Trekking in these regions requires stable weather and a moderate climate. Spring and autumn have perfect weather conditions for the Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek.

The mountain views are clear in spring and autumn. The temperature is neither too cold nor too hot. You will have a great time trekking. The forests bloom with hundreds and thousands of rhododendrons, and the seasonal festival makes the trek more appealing. 

Other seasons, like summer/monsoon (June to August) and winter (December to February), are not favorable times for this trek. The weather is not stable in these two seasons, and the trail condition is also not good. The views are obstructed mostly.

Why is travel insurance needed for the Manaslu Annapurna circuit trek?

It should cover medical bills and emergency air evacuation. You can include other things in the insurance, too.

Client Reviews

  • Manaslu and Annapurna Circuit Treks!!!

    Before I get into details, I really just have to say that the owner Ganesh is amazing. Incredible service, so responsive, and sensitive to his customer’s needs. It’s clear that he has listened intently to customer feedback and integrates it into his service. There were times when I felt like he knew exactly what I was thinking and feeling regarding the planning of my trek.

    I came across Ganesh on a random travel blog about trekking in Nepal. The authors highly recommended him and gave his email. I sent him a message and the rest was smooth sailing.

    Ganesh’s office is conveniently located in the heart of Thamel. This made a big difference. If you’re like me and come to Kathmandu without plans or gear, you’ll likely be walking around shops a lot, buying things, and also considering different options for treks. Ganesh met me at my hotel to discuss my thoughts on the trek multiple times, and I was also able to chat with him at his office on my way back to my hotel after exploring the city once or twice. This was SUPER convenient and allowed him to really understand what I was looking for and customize the trek. It also allowed me to get fantastic guidance on what I needed to buy in real time. I don’t have a great deal of trekking experience, so a 3 week trip in the Himalayas is not a joke. With Ganesh’s help, I was able to put together an amazing itinerary and was totally prepared to go within just a 2-3 days of starting to plan. It was also not a very typical itinerary, which reflected how well Ganesh listened to what I was looking for and the dialogue we had in putting it all together. He shared insights with me that influenced my decisions about where to go, and while I was on the trek, there were multiple instances when I thought to myself, “ooh, this is what Ganesh was talking about!”

    Finally, Ganesh personally came to pick me up and to me off at the airport. He didn’t need to do that. This is probably the most impressive thing about him. He is incredibly professional and friendly, and went above and beyond to make me feel like a valued customer.

    I can’t speak highly enough about Ace Adventures and Ganesh. Everything about my experience was awesome and I definitely recommend this company to anyone who is coming to explore Nepal and appreciates super considerate and earnest service.
