The inclusion of Larkye La pass- one of the challenging Himalayan high passes adds the x-factor on the trekking. Like other trekking, Manaslu trek is also a teahouse type trekking. Due to the smaller number of tourists in the route, there are very few teahouses along the way.

Basically, three major permits are needed for Manaslu circuit trekking; the required permits for the trek are restricted area permits, ACAP and MCAP permit. The permit for the trek is needed to issue in Kathmandu at Nepal tourism board and Nepal Immigration respectively. The best season to trek Manaslu is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). Trekking Manaslu in the months of winter (December to February) is doable.
