Best Time for Manaslu Circuit Trek is dependent on Weather and temperature factors for the best season of the Manaslu trek in Nepal. March to May, September to November is the most energetic season for Manaslu trek.

Heavy snowfall in the winter season from December until February closed the lodge at Dharamsala, makes it difficult to cross Larkya La Pass.  From June to August is the rainy season. We do not recommend trekking in the winter and rainy seasons to anyone.
