    This map has been great and I used it a lot in the planning for my Manaslu and Tsum valley trek.

      You have to contact a local trekking agency to arrange that.

    How long does it take to recieve a permit?

    • admin@manaslu said on January 15, 2013 at 1:54 am

      Can be done in a single day. But festivals, Saturdays and some other days are not worked. Has to be done by agent. Providing agent with passport scan and electronic version of your photo for printing helps them prepare. Give them your original passport on arrival and then with luck you’ll have the permit within the day, or next day.

    hi guys, i am interested in trekking manaslu circuit and continue to annapurna (to jomsom) – do you know do i need my own tent or it’s possible to stay at homestays/lodges all the way? thanks in advance //sue

  7. Julia said on June 14, 2013 at 8:51 am


    Dose anyone know if its possible to take a jeep as far up as Deng? Or close to Deng from Argaht?

    I have read eleswhere that it is possible to take a jeep to Soti Pascal. And i understand that the reason why Manasulu is the new Annapurna is because it has no roads…but i thought maybe this may have changed? Or that there may be another way,by motobike for example??

    Only reason why im inquiring is because i need to cut the trek short due to a return flight.

    • admin@manaslu said on June 14, 2013 at 8:55 am

      You can reach Soti Khola beyond Argughat. From there nothing more. You can manage the circuit to Dharapani in as little as 9 days. From there you can use jeeps, then buses and micros to Kathmandu. How many days do you have?

  8. Julia said on June 14, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Thanks for your reply!

    We were planning to cross over onto the Annapurna circuit around Thonje and on to Jomson. Was hoping to do the manasulu part in as little days as possible, and as the weather is not that great until higher altitude, another reason to try and get past Deng!

    Do local people only use yak and buff to transport goods past Soti Pascal??

    • admin@manaslu said on June 14, 2013 at 9:19 am

      Soti Pascal? Soti Khola?

      There are mules, and some horses. But at the other end you can also take a jeep from Muktinath to Jomsom and save a day.

      You could also consider trekking up to Naar and Phu instead of keeping on the main route to Thorung La, then descend and jeep out from Dharapani.

  9. Julia said on June 14, 2013 at 9:33 am

    Yes, i mean Soti Kohla!

    That would be amazing to trek through Nar-Phuu, i did think of that. But that would be a camping trek, which would possibly be out of our budget, plus the permit fees..

    One of the main reasons to get to Jomson was because when i last did the Annapurna cicuit (in April this yr) i jeeped it from Muktina…and realized that was a mistake as that small section of the trail is soo starkly different to the rest of the circut!

    Would have been ideal to cut the beginning days of the Manasulu trek due to the weather…maybe we can try hitch a yak? Haha

    • admin@manaslu said on June 14, 2013 at 9:39 am

      What date are you planning to go? Will check about Naar Phu – several tea houses there now.

  10. Julia said on June 14, 2013 at 10:17 am

    Planning to go in the next couple of days…im just looking now at the Nar-phuu trail to see where it intercepts and how many days it might be as an add on before joining Annapurna…Would be great to know which stops are tea house! Thanks..

    The map doesn’t seem to be working at the moment…

    Hello together, is it possible to do Manaslu Trek comfortably with fused ankle when hiring a horse?

  13. F/verst said on October 30, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    Hi Guys, somebody also planning on doing the Manaslu circuit leaving on the 4th of november? Sharing a guide and planning to do the trip in 9 days.


  14. Richard McCharles said on October 31, 2013 at 7:41 am

    Hey F/verst

    Myself and another solo hiker from the U.K are looking to do the Circuit independently starting about that date.

    we want to go the the Tsum valley in october 2017. Just on question left. Are there always lodges ore homestays available? we would like to avoid camping.

  20. Cenda said on December 15, 2016 at 2:43 pm

    Hi, where is the RAP permit collect, only in KTM? For the 1st week it is 70 USD, and when I would stay there longer , where I would pay the extra-days fee (10 USD/day) ? At Dharapani ? Thanks

    • admin@manaslu said on February 3, 2017 at 7:15 pm

      Generally they don’t check on exit. You pay in advance for planned days, but if say you got sick and stayed extra days, then the only place to pay is Kathmandu, which means you don’t have to pay extra as it is impossible.
