The Around Manaslu trek is often likened to how the Annapurna circuit used to be. The lodges are rustic, crowds are fewer, and the scenery is wild and rugged. Like the nearby Annapurna circuit, this trek covers a diverse array of landscapes starting in the green, lower hills and climbing past lakes and picturesque villages to the rock and ice covered Larke La (5106 m). From Samagaon there are spectacular side trips to Punggen Gompa an isolated monastery at the foot of Manaslu and Manaslu Basecamp.

Weather Conditions in October

October begins the most popular time to trek, with moderate temperatures, clear skies in the wake of the monsoon, and a low chance of rain and snow. In recent years, the monsoon rains have receded later with weather patterns typically stabilizing in mid-October. While the chance of snow is decreased, there is the possibility of a heavy snowfall at higher elevations. If ill-timed and prolonged, this can make it difficult to cross some passes.

At a glance
On average there are 4 days with precipitation in October. The highest point on the trek is Larkya La (Larke Pass) at 5106 m. During October, expect high temperatures of around 4.8°C (41°F) and lows down to -9.2°C (15°F) at Larkya La (Larke Pass).
