Manaslu Trek Food

Manaslu Circuit Trek recently upgraded itself from a camping trek to a teahouse trek with a basic teahouse. Unlike camping, you won’t have a professional cook to cook your desired meal but will have to rely on the food that is available in the teahouses.

The tea house in Manaslu is a basic standard. Most of the teahouses hire professional cooks for the peak season, but they might be on leave during the off-season.

The teahouse has a menu with a wide variety of food. However, you can’t compare it to other mainstream treks like Annapurna and Everest.

Food prices are cheaper in the lower section of the trail and will get more expensive as you go higher. Food availability on the menu can be limited when you go higher because there is no cold storage facility for meat and fresh vegetables. So, avoiding meat in the upper section of the trail is recommended.

Different people have different appetites and tastes. Some are happy with a single meal, while others prefer to start with a drink and appetizers and then finish with a delicious dessert.

On average, USD 30 per person per day is good for basic meals i.e. breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu below will give you an idea of how much you need for the trek for the foodies.

In October 2022, I did a thirteen-day trek around the Manaslu Circuit. I took a photo of the food menus in different places, which you can find below

The places I covered were Soti Khola, Jagat, Namrung, Sama Gaun, Samdo, Bimthang, Surki Khola, and Dharapani. Soti Khola is the starting point, and Dharapani is the ending point of the Manaslu Circuit Trek. Prices are in Nepali rupees. By the next few years, prices will hike by a certain percentage, somewhere between ten and fifteen percent. I believe this will help you to plan your budget.
