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.]

Hi I am Paolo, I am traveling to the starting point of the trek on the 8th of March, could be great to share a jeep, on top of this I am willing to walk the last part (I do not like much traveling in the mountains) from Arughat to Soti Khola the same day in case somebody is interested. Some walking and some pictures will be ideal!

I am going back the 23rd from Besisahar and I am looking for a jeep also for the way back

Ready to share jeep. At the moment there is four of us going + guide but it might change because we are doing Langtang Gosaikunda trek before this and not yet sure if all of us will go for Manaslu. We would like to leave Katmandu on 29th November and go to Soti Khola.

    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.
