Best Time for the Manaslu Circuit Trek
There are peak seasons for travel in the high altitude Manaslu region. These two seasons include Spring which ranges from March to May, and Autumn, from September to November. These two seasons provide trekkers with the advantage of stable weather and the perfect climate.

” Memorable trekking @ Manaslu Circuit “John S [Netherlands]
I booked my trekking of Manaslu Circuit with Nepal Guide Treks. I am really glad that I choose this company. My guide Roshan was a helpful person. He was caring and made me feel safe during the whole trekking time. Loads of memories from the trek, however, the close view of Mt. Manaslu was awesome and the crossing of Larkey La at 5135m pass was just a great experience for me. I am sure that I will be doing more treks with Nepal Guide Treks in the future. Strongly recommended for trekking in Nepal.Best Of Luck NGT !!
