Manaslu Circuit Trek Package Cost Includes with Details 

Manaslu Circuit Trek Package Cost is divided into various subtitles like Food and Accommodation Cost, Hiring Guide and Porter Cost, Transportation Cost, Trekking Permits Cost and Extras. 

Food and Accommodation Cost

If you choose to include all foods and accommodation, it is called Full-Board Package and if you want to include only accommodation and breakfast, it is known as half-board package. If you ask your travel partner to include all the foods items you are going to have during the trip, they will do it for you and you won’t have any stress of paying for foods frequently during the trip. Or, you can find the best item of food on the menu and go for lunch and dinner if you go only with Bed and Breakfast during your Manaslu Circuit Trek Package. 


If you ask the cost of one item of food during the trek, it costs between USD 2-8 depending on the elevation. It means, if you are at low elevation and close to the cities area, the cost of the food item may be lower and as you gradually ascend higher, you will pay higher too. 

If you are willing to spend some extra money on drinks like soft and alcoholic, you will normally spend USD 10-15 a day. 

Actually, even if you choose the full board package, you require paying for extra drinks like drinking water, tea and coffee, other soft drinks and alcoholic drinks. 

Cost for Hiring Guide and Porter 

Hiring Guide and Porters for trekking in Nepal cost ranges between USD 30-40 per day and if you are in a group, the cost can be shared by each individual. For example, if you are 5 people in group, you can share the cost of the guide like USD 8 by each traveler. If you want a very professional guide and perfect language proficiency, it costs USD 40 and the beginners and mild graded trekking guide costs USD 30. You may get the trekking guides at lower costs like USD 20 or even less than that, but they may not have such kind of qualities that they  should possess and if you hire them, your entire trip may get spoiled and you may have to regret for wasting your budget for the particular tour package in Nepal. So, what we suggest you is that, you should be very confident about your trekking crew before you go to the Manaslu Circuit Trekking Trail. Then only, you can make this adventure and challenging trekking trip in restricted area happen successfully. 

If you also need to hire porter, then, the cost of hiring one porter costs USD 20 per day. An individual porter can carry maximum of 18-20kgs of weight in the mountain. It means, you have got the stuffs like around 9kgs each, then, two people can share the same porter but we advise you not to overburden the porter by making him carry heavier loads which may break him or her down. 

The above mentioned costs of guide and porter covers the following includes: 

  • Food and accommodation 
  • Transportation
  • All required permits 
  • Travel Insurance and medical expenses if needed
  • Personal expenses 

We request you to be co-coordinating and friendly with your trekking crew including your guide and porter so that you can have more memorable, successful, and convenient and exciting Manaslu Circuit Trek even though it is a tough and challenging trekking trip in Nepal.
