As Trekking in Everest Region is a seasonal adventure tour and trek activities, we’ve two best seasons for the Manaslu Trek and they are as follows:
Spring(March, April, May): The season in which rhododendron blooms with its decent color and beauty and due to which colorful hills are spotted throughout the journey wherever possible. One also gets an opportunity to collect the clear and picturesque view of the amazing Himalayan range including the World’s 8th highest peak(Mount Manaslu 8163 m), Mount Ganesh, Mount Shringi and Mount Baudha as well.
Autumn(September, October, November): The perfect season to trek in which dry air is dispersed all over the nation and due to which the sky seems to be crystal clear. The trekking trails are also neither too wet nor too slippery. One can enjoy the breathtaking transparent views of the snowcapped Mount Manaslu, Mount Ganesh, Mount Shringi and Mount Baudha with other spectacular mountains around.
As it is one of the challenging treks with a quite long duration as compared to the Annapurna Sunrise Trek or Everest Sunrise Trek, it is not recommended in the winter season(December, January, February). And similarly, due to wet and slippery trail, the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is absolutely not possible during rainy season(June, July, August) as well.
