Before The Trekking 

ESSENTIAL INFORMATIONS:

PASSPORT AND VISA INFORMATION

Your passport needs to be valid for at least six (6) months after your journey ends, and should have a minimum of one (1) blank visa page for entry and exit stamps.

CASH & CREDIT CARDS

We recommend travelling with some cash, and at least two different major credit cards, such as Visa and Mastercard, so you have backup if your card is not accepted or lost. Access to ATM machines is available in Kathmandu but limited to none in rural areas. Contact your bank and credit card companies to let them know where and when you’ll be travelling, as well as confirm any foreign transaction fees.

When carrying cash, try to travel only with recently issued currency in smaller denominations; wrinkled or torn bills are not accepted. Only exchange currency at authorized outlets such as currency exchanges, ATMs or hotels and save receipts as they may be required for exit.

 

PHYSICAL CONDITION & EXPERIENCE REQUIRED:

Manaslu Circuit trek is graded as a moderate/hard level treks. However, trekkers must be physically and mentally fit as days can involve 6/8 hours of walk in a remote and rugged terrain. Altitudes are generally more or less than 5000 meters with crossing Larkye Pass (5140m). Generally, trekkers can expect to carry a day pack weighing around8kgs, however lower altitude treks may involve carrying full packs (approx. 12kg or more). The terrain will often be rugged and some walks may be exploratory, venturing far off the beaten track. Weather conditions may be harsh at times, and you will need to be comfortable trekking in adverse weather conditions. Remote areas are sometimes unpredictable and itineraries may be altered. To get the most out of your adventure it is important that you are flexible, positive and eager to take on all the challenges that arise.

We suggest up to one hour of strenuous exercise each day, interspersed with a relatively demanding bushwalk at the weekend. The best exercise for trekking is bushwalking involving relatively steep ascents and descents; multi day walks are ideal preparation for our challenging adventures.

BOOKING

Booking confirmation must be done 30 days before arrival date in Kathmandu. A non-refundable 30% advance payment must be made after signing the Service Agreement between the two parties 30 days before the trip date. Clients must provide a Medical Report signed by a physician stating otherwise healthy and fit.

ACCOMODATION & FOOD

We will be staying in one the best available local lodges during the trek. The lodges are equipped with basic facilities like an unheated bedroom with wooden beds & foam mattress (Sleeping bag is a “must”), with sharing toilet, amenities get scarce as we head higher elevations. Accommodation is generally arranged on a twin sharing basis and if you are travelling by yourself, you will usually be paired up with someone of the same sex. Please note that at one or two of the higher lodges we may be forced to use multi-bedded rooms. The lodges have shared washing and toilet facilities. Some lodges have solar powered showers (charged at $4 - $5 per shower) and battery charging facilities (also charged at a rate per hour).

Food will be of the highest standard possible, given the remoteness of the situation. We will take meals (breakfast, Lunch & Dinner) in lodges and teahouses along the trail. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know in advance and preparations shall be made accordingly.

TEAM

We believe in delivering highest standard of client care before and after the completion of trip. A team of dedicated and experienced Guide, helpers and porters will provide you support during the trek.
