The Manaslu Circuit Trek is the best all round tea-house hike in Nepal on the Great Himalaya Trail; the new Annapurna Circuit. No camping needed.

Share a jeep to Arughat

manaslu-trek-jeepIf you are putting together your own trip, you might be facing a fun-packed local bus ride, with a lot of ‘packed’ and dubious fun. It’s an experience for sure, but can be pretty exhausting and might not give you the best possible start to your trek. Jeeps are pretty costly but the cost can be reduced if you share. If you get an early start, then you can arrive in Arughat with an afternoon left still to trek so a nicer place to stay than the roadhead.

A 4×4 Toyota Landcruiser jeep can seat seven comfortably and costs around $US180, and gives you more of a chance of getting through the memorably last kilometres of the road from Dhading Besi – a road like no other! The journey is 7 hours with a lunch stop, toilet stops and occasional short photography breaks.

Add your name and departure date to this list and we’ll try and hook you up for a more affordable ride.

[You can also share a jeep to Langtang from Kathmandu.]

We will arrive at Kathmandu on 12. November. I am not sure, if we can get the permits already on a Saturday (maybe permit offices are closed). If it is possible, we can maybe start already on Sunday (13. Nov.).

Hi Not sure if Guide will be travelling with us from Kathmandu but put in 3 just in case - thats myself and my partner. Reason for Jeep option to travel is that we are a little tight on time so hope to get to Arughat midday-ish allowing us to start the trek on that Monday instead of the following day if we had taking the local bus option.

Hi, we are 2 ppl arriving from Australia on the 30 September. We are thinking of organising a guide in Kathmandu and if possible leave on the Monday but not sure as it seems one full working day is needed to organise the permit. Hence the leaving date is set to 4 October.

One gal, one guy arriving from Australia on the 30 September. I believe we are organising a guide in Kathmandu. Preferably we would like to leave on the Monday but since it seems as one full working day is needed to organise permit we might have to wait till Tuesday. Would be great to share a jeep if someone is leaving on the same day 🙂

    Hello. thank you for your very helpful website. My friend and I are planning trip to Nepal Nov 2-Nov 27. Our first week in Kathmandu, we planned on helping the Oscar Film School as we have raised money and equipment to help rebuild.
    then we were hoping to trek the Manaslu circuit starting around Nov 10 +- a day.

    Now the Fuel Crisis has hit and our trip is in jeopardy of falling apart.

    Could you be so kind to give real on the ground update of fuel and functionality in Kathmandu? Can we get around? Is there hotel and restaurants open? Taxis?

    Can we even get from Kathmandu to Arughat to start the trek? By bus like Greenline or help set up Jeep with others?

    And after reading your Oct 1 post, is the trail open to trekkers. We are fit and healthy but not professional mountain climbers!

    We are very anxious and wondering if we should try or just cancel trip?

    Please advise and help any can.

    Thank you, Thank you for any information

    Sita Rogers

      No panic. There is always a way. Your transport might be more cramped and certainly more expensive, but always possible. Money talks.
      Right now taxis are there, shops open, some short of gas.
      I think by 10th Nov trail will be fine for you also. Follow the tracker on the manaslu trail race webiste… will be updates there.

        Thank you for reply. Will follow the tracker per suggestion.

        Any news if Greenline bus or similar is running yet?
