Manaslu Circuit Trek can do minimum 13 days to more than 21 days. Trekkers who are curious to investigate or study about geography and culture of Manaslu there is several hidden treasure in the area, where just few trekkers have visited yet except if you visit this time. Some people are worried about the road construction at the begging of Manaslu Circuit trail but there are many wonderful places where you can do as side trips. Among of them there is a beautiful village an elevation of 2397 meters just opposite of the Ghap, which is called Prok Village. It is worth to spend two nights at Prok, to explore Kalchhuman Tal (Kal Tal) and Kalchhuman Gumba. But it is mandatory to hire a local Guide from the village; your day trips effort will be way of to generate local income.
Likewise, Sho village is another best place to spend more than one night for a day hike to Hining Gumba and up to Himalchuli Base Camp (4020m). As there is not any human settlements, while day hike you need to bring some pack lunch, energy bars, and sufficient drinking water and worm clothes. Nepal Mother House would like to give you unique opportunity then others trekkers, we always tried to find you less frequented off the beaten trail. The mountain scenery is astonishing during Himalchuli Base Camp side trips.
Similarly, to make your trips different than others, it is ideal to visit Pungyen Gumba from Shyala, it is situated at about 3,870 meters elevation just lap of beautiful Himalaya. While walk to the Pungyen Gumba the trail goes through the huge pasture land and mountains scenery. Often you have sight of Marmot hide and seek in the whole at pasture land. You have unforgettable experience with heard of yaks, Himalayan goats making their own world. It takes about 4 to 5 hours for round trip from Shyala. Most of the trekkers make camp at Samagoun or Lho, so it is best to spent night at Shyala itself to avoid the crowded.
Normally, most of the trekkers stay two nights at Sama Gaun for the acclimatized propose before heading Larke La Pass, but there is several side tripss at Samagaun and it is worth to spend even 3 nights at Sama. You may day hike to the Mt. Manaslu Base Camp (4,400m) for the icefall view and Glacier. While visit the MBC you will explore Birendra Lake, its tranquility makes your soul peaceful and add you more energy. There are several expedition groups during mid of September to October; this is perfect time to climb Mt. Manaslu, Hence most of the other mountains expedition operates during spring. Look around the village at Samagaun won’t be enough even one full day. The people life style of here is similar like ancient Tibetan which still exists here. Monetary, Manewall, Chorten are full of curiosity.
There is another side trips from Samdo, during your Manaslu Circuit Trek. It takes 4 to 5 hours for a round trip to Rui La/Lajyang Bhanjyang (4,998m). Rui La is last point of Nepal’s land. As there is not any settlement beyond the Samdo village you need to take some pack lunch, enough drinking water and worm clothes for this side trips. When heading farther and higher the valley becomes wider and more beautiful. This is one of the best side trips at Manaslu, where it is natural tranquility with sound of Himalayan birds, playful Marmot gang, grazing Yaks on huge pastureland and herd of Himalayan Goats. As you left the road connectivity from Arughat and Soto for many days, you wish only mountains scenery and high Himalayan atmosphere but when you get in Rui La, you might be surprise the road from Tibet built till Pass. There are several road sign for Tibetan village. Rui La is one of the ancient commercial borders between Nepal and Tibet. The scenery from here is incredible; even you have sight of some Tibetan village from here. The atmosphere of here seems to be another planate. But some time Chinese shoulder portals round the border, than you are not permission to visit the border. Around the Rui La you can see countless fossils in different image. The Hindus believe that, fossils are real image of Lord Vishnu. The fossils (Shaligram) represent of Tyattis Koti (thirty three cores/330 million) different deities of Hindus. Hence; one core equal 10 million. Anyway, your side trips to Rui La could be lifetime memorable.
Manaslu round with side trips is similar as Larkya La pass but add more some side trips in the Himalaya.
