Trip Overview

Manaslu North Face, trek route few other trekkers walk these trails, lending the route a pioneering feel that once drew visitors to the better known regions of Nepal Everest and Annapurna.

From the trail head at Phalesangu/ Archalbot Village we climb steadily through the paddies and terraces of Gurung villages to the Tamang community of Phurano Dobar, where C.A.N. has helped the villagers install a clean water system for the whole area. Typical of the Tamang's strong cultural identity is the local women's group, who may dance and sing for us in the evening.

Continuing up the ridge, through forests of rhododendron, we arrive at the Baraha Pokhari at Manaslu North Face, believed by Nepalese witch doctors to be a place of special power. Above the tree-line, we are treated to a superb vista of Himalayan peaks stretching from the Annapurnas in the west across mighty Manaslu to the Langtang Himal in the east. Our ridge leads to 7540m Himal Chuli and we will follow it to the height of 4200m. If you extend the trip two days longer we camp at 4334m though those who are fit enough have the option to continue to 4719m.

Winding along the contour line through forests that open up periodically to give further views, we arrive at Nam Pokhari from where we drop to the valley floor weaving among the terraces, farms and rice paddies that are typical of the middle hill country of Nepal. 

Average hiking per day in Manaslu North Face will be 6-7 hrs.
