Interested in joining a group departure for the Manaslu Circuit Trek? Kimkim travel specialists are running weekly set departures for the Manaslu Circuit Trek during the Spring and Autumn trekking seasons. Dates, cost, and availability are listed below, along with a day by day itinerary.

How Group Departures Work

Group departures are based on 'fixed dates' which are guaranteed to depart with a minimum of two-to-three travelers. Other travelers can then join these dates leading up to the departure, often capped at a maximum of 8-12 travelers in order to keep the group sizes small and intimate. By joining a group departure, you'll share costs with the rest of the group (leading to a lower trip price) as well as share the experience with other travelers.

What the Price Includes

The group departure prices for the Manaslu Circuit trek include your guide(s), porters, lodging, transport, permit costs, and all meals. You can read more about teahouse meals in this article

Planning Your Trip

When joining one of our fixed departures, please ensure you arrive in Kathmandu at least two days prior to the departure date. This will give you time to settle in, gather last minute supplies, and join the team for the trip briefing prior to the trek. It also gives your local specialist time to apply and receive the necessary permits for the trek.
