Day 01: Drive from Kathmandu to Arughat and trek to Soti Khola on a private Jeep.

After breakfast, we will prepare for a ride up to Arughat. It will take about 6-7 hours to reach Arughat. The road will pass through green hills, rivers, towns, and markets. You will be experiencing some bumpy rides in between reaching up to Arughat. 

Upon reaching Arughat, we will take a break for some time or we will have our meal here and rest for a while. Then, our Manaslu trekking supporter will carry our backpacks and start our trek to reach Soti Khola. In about a few hours of uphill walk through different villages, we will now reach Soti Khola. We will stay in the teahouse today here at Soti Khola. Overnight stay at the teahouse.

Day 02: Soti Khola to Maccha Khola

After breakfast, we will start our trek to reach Maccha Khola. This Soti Khola is the last point accessible to the motorable road. The trail passes through the fields and the bank of Budi Gandaki River. You will see locals doing their daily activities in their houses and areas around while trekking. 

Trekking Trail is not so challenging, so you can say it is an easy walk for the days' trek. Enjoying the surrounding view while walking, we will reach Maccha Khola in no time. There are hotels, lodges, and teahouses to stay. Overnight stay at a hotel.

Day 03: Maccha Khola to Jagat (checkpoint)

After breakfast, we will start our trek. You can expect some traffic jams on the trail due to mules carrying loads on their backs. Watch out for the mules and some steep parts while walking on the bank of beautiful Budi Gandaki river. Also, watch for the landslide sections in the different regions. Be careful while walking on these sections. 

Few hours of walk, we will now reach Jagat, where there is a check post to enter your name and check your permit. There is a settlement of a group of local people with some hotels and lodges in this beautiful village. Overnight stay at the tea house in this beautiful village.

Day 04: Jagat to Dying

After breakfast, we will prepare to trek to reach our destination today to Dying. First, we will be crossing the Budi Gandaki river several times over the wood and a suspension bridge. After that, we will pass through the village like Philim and Ekle Bhatti. 

You will see well-managed lodges and guest houses here. The Trekking Trail of today as the itinerary is easy uphill and downhill, so it will not be that difficult to reach today's destination. Also, be careful while walking along the riverbank and also watch out for the landslide area. After few hours of walk through the village and dense pine forest, we will now reach Deng. Overnight stay at the guest house.

Day 05: Deng to Namrung

It will take about 6 to 7 hours to reach Namrung from Deng. So, after breakfast, we will prepare to walk crossing different villages and forest, not to mention the beautiful view of mountains and the roaring sound of Budi Gandaki river. 

This entire is inside the Manaslu Conservation Area so you will see some of the rare species of flora and fauna. It is an easy walk today, not so much of an uphill climb. After about 7 hours of walk, we will now reach Namrung village, located next to Budi Gandaki River. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

Day 06: Namrung to Samagaon

After breakfast, we will start our trek. The trail combines both uphill and downhill walks through dense forests and villages influenced by Tibetan culture and rituals. Houses built here are Tibetan influential as well as festivals. The trail passes through Lho village.

Day 07: Rest in Samagaon. Trek to Pungyen Gompa or a little way to Manaslu Basecamp/Birendra Tal

Today is the rest day here at Samagaon. We will spend our time exploring the local places. We will hike little up to Pungyen Gompa which will take about 3 hours to reach or maybe up to the Manaslu Base Camp itself, where we will be getting close to the mighty Manaslu. The trail is narrow and steep uphill. It will be hard to walk along this trail. So, one must start this hike earlier to reach base camp and back to Samagaon. 

Hiking up to the base camp will also be helpful to acclimatize more for the next day's trek. En route, we will also visit the beautiful turquoise Birendra Tal. After that, we will return to our guest house and rest for the day. Overnight stay at the guest house.

Day 08: Samagaon to Samdo

It will be a short and easy walk from Samagaon to Samdo. The trail is primarily plain and easy. It will take about 3 hours to reach Samdo, so we will pass through Mani walls, prayer wheels, and chortens along the trail without rushing. We have a full day's rest here at Samdo. Explore the place, take some pictures and talk with the local people about their lifestyle here. It is a deserted yet beautiful landscape here in Samdo. Overnight stay at the guest house.

Day 09: Samdo to Dharmashala

You have two options today; either stay 2 nights here at Samdo and cross Larkey Pass and reach Bimtang in the same day or you can hike further up to Dharmashala which is also known as Larkey Phedi or Larkey Base Camp locally. If physically fit, you can rest here at Samdo. If not, we will trek to reach Dharmashala. It is also a short and easy walk for about 4 hours. There is only one teahouse with some tents here in Dharmashala. So, you can expect quite a lot of visitors here during the peak season. The night will be cold and chilly. Prepare yourself to get warm during the chilly night. 

Sleep early to wake up early and start our trek to cross the pass. Make your backpacks, torch, and some foods ready to begin early in the morning, at nearly 4 to 5. Overnight stay at the teahouse.

Day 10: Dharmashala to Bimtang

We will be starting our trek as early as 4 or 5 in the morning. The earlier you start the tour, it will be easy to cross the Larkey Pass. The wind gets more potent during the daytime, so keep a steady pace and follow the marked poles to cross the pass. Annapurna range, Larkey peak, and some other mountain ranges are visible during this walk. After about 4-5 hours of walk, we will now Reach Larkey pass (5200 m approx.). We will spend a few minutes here and descend as quickly as we can. 

A trekking pole will come in handy while descending the steep trail. However, it is an easy walk after dropping. In about 5 hours, we will now reach Bimthang, a beautiful settlement located in the lap of mountains. Good teahouse and lodges are here to serve their guests. Overnight stay at the club.

Day 11: Trek down to Dharapani; Overnight in the lodge.

Today is the easiest day in the whole trek, this Short Manaslu Trek. We will reach Dharapani with an easy downhill full of Natural sights. Overnight in the lodge. 7-8 hours

Day 12: Drive back to Kathmandu

If everything goes well as planned, we will reach Kathmandu today. Start early in the morning and get a bus or jeep. The road is busy mainly with jeeps and trekkers. The road is primarily rocky and off-road through Tal, so prepare yourself to get a bumpy ride, but from Besi Sahar, it is a blacktopped road. In about 8-9 hours of a long drive, we will now reach Kathmandu. We will rest upon reaching Kathmandu. Overnight stay at the hotel.
