The Manaslu Mountain Trail Race is a challenging multi-stage trail race passing through some of Nepal’s most beautiful Himalayan landscapes in a part-circumnavigation of Manaslu, the world’s eighth-highest mountain. You’ll ‘run’ a total of ~130 km over 7 race days and hike ~40 km over two days. You’ll cross a 5,160m pass, sleep at a monastery, (optionally) peer over the border into wild Tibet, run above a glacier on the trail to Manaslu Base Camp and enjoy many awesome trails in between. You run with a light pack and all of your equipment is carried from stage start to stage finish.
What have others had to say:
“Trail adventure of a lifetime….due to combination of jaw-dropping scenery (I will never forget my first sight of Manaslu), fantastic trails, beautiful villages, humble people (the highlight being invited into their home), excellent trip organisation and wonderful team camaraderie! …. a hugely rewarding challenge.” – Bruce Chisholm, NZ
“Best run I’ve done. Challenging run through spectacular scenery” – David Binney, NZ.
“Physically and mentally, this was the toughest thing I have ever done in my life. And yet it was the most incredible adventure too – astonishing scenery, fascinating villages and cultures, and, most of all, the wonderful people encountered in our fellow runners, Nepali crew and the locals whose lives we briefly passed through. Great to see the race give back to the communities through its partnership with LED and the delivery of light. Thank you to you, Dhir and the team for making this possible. ” – Lilly Dyu, UK
