Introduction

Manaslu trek is first best choices for those who prefer to become one with nature and less crowded region of Nepal. Well this trek will starts from Kathmandu with sightseeing of UNESCO world heritage sites and then drive to Sotikhola where the real trekking begins. The entire trail follows mostly through mountain trails with amazing views of snow caped mountain including Mt.Manasalu ( eight highest mountain in the world) 8163m. This trek is perfect not just for hiking but the traditional settlement,glacier lakes, fascinating flora and fauna and great combination of rich local cultural heritage, adventure and rare biological diversity are another highlight of the trip. The highest point of this trek is Larkey-La pass(5160m). Our itineraries also ensure adequate time for proper acclimatisation, again it’s important to note that trekking above 3000m is more demanding on the body than walking at lower elevations.

When you book a trip through Beyond Base Camp Treks we require that you obtain a travel insurance policy. We recommend your insurance includes medical coverage for high altitude, emergency repatriation, trip cancellation and other travel mishaps (e.g. flight cancellations or delays, trip interruption, or loss of luggage and personal effects). The medical and emergency repatriation are compulsory for your trip. Medical care in the Himalayas is remote and the coverage in your insurance will ensure the best care and transport should an emergency arise. Altitude Sickness is a very real possibility, although our guides are trained to detect and help curb the effects, it is never a guarantee that you may not suffer some serious symptoms that require medical attentions.

Altitude sickness, also called Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS), is a group of general symptoms that are brought on by rapidly climbing or walking to a higher altitude too quickly. It happens because the body doesn’t have enough time to adapt to the lower air pressure and lower oxygen level in the air at high altitudes. Altitude sickness can affect anyone and does not discriminate by age, sex, or general health. We try to manage and minimize the effects of altitude sickness by building in acclimatization days during the treks above 3000m. Most people will experience some common effects of altitude including shortness of breathe and lightheadedness. Your trained guide will monitor you daily and it is important to be honest about any effects of altitude you may be feeling, signs of mountain sickness typically present with enough advanced notice that we can minimize severe symptoms.

There are three stages of AMS:
1) Normal AMS symptoms- expect but no worries
2) Mild AMS symptoms- Don’t go higher
3) Serious AMS symptoms- Decent immediate
