Manaslu Trek Itinerary 14 days

This 14-day itinerary is only suitable if there are bus services from Kathmandu to Soti Khola at the start of the trek, and also from Tal to Besi Sahar, and Besi Sahar to Kathmandu at the end of the trek.  The road from Tal to Besi Sahar is a temporary and an off-road trail where buses or local jeep only run during the fall season (between September to November), although road conditions are also based on the rainy season and whether the road has been rebuilt or not.  Nevertheless, it is always a good idea to check in advance with your local company (contact us) if this trail can be done within the 14 days timeframe or not. Please see our sample 14 days itinerary from Kathmandu with estimated elevation and expected daily travelling time. However, Manaslu trek itinerary can be completed in different days and time frame fastest as 14 days and 22 days Manaslu with Tsum Valley or as always everyone's choice 17 days Manaslu trek can be the best option if you have enough time.

About Rajendra Khanal (Raj)

Rajendra Khanal (Raj) Born and raised in Gorkha, Nepal, I am proud to call the Manaslu region my home! I have been in the travel business for over a decade from being assistance guide to being a guide/leader to being a manager and finally a founder of NEST Adventure. So you could say, I know my way well enough in the Himalayas especially in some of the off-the-beaten trails in Nepal like Manaslu, Kanchenjunga or Mustang

I am passionate about travelling and I strongly believe that seeing the world shouldn't break the bank (at least not too much!).  I have backpacked to over 15 countries in Asia, Central Americas USA and Canada, one-third of Europe, Caribbean Island and  Latin America.

I studied in the UK and moved to the United States. During that period, I had an opportunity working with multinational companies which taught me, how to deliver quality customer service in the business? As a world travelling backpacker myself, and travel expert of Nepal Himalayas, I started writing about my own country.  Incase, If you required free information about Nepal, please do not hesitate to visit my office in Thamel. We are located in the centre of Kathmandu Thamel. I am happy to share a cup of Nepali tea and free information.  Our team at NEST has earned 5/5 star ratings on TripAdvisor from about 200 satisfied customers.

Is this 14 day Manaslu Trek now possible after the 2015 earthquake? Are the roads passable? I intend to do this trek alone at end Sept or early October 2016. How much for this trek ? Thanks
- Joseph Hannen


Hello, Joseph Hannen ! There is nothing has been changing in Itinerary after the earthquake! YES ! It was change recent after the earthquake due to the landslide on the trail. The landslide has been clean up and bridge wiped out by landslides has been fixed by the locals. Manaslu Trek is completely possible within 14 days. Trek alone in Manaslu is not possible either you have to hire one porter or guide. If you are travelling alone you must look for a group to join. Let us know if you want to join a group we will try to find a group to join with. The cost will be roughly 300 to 500 USD . I hope this will help you out to make a decision.
