Since Manaslu site trekking is a remote and restricted area trekking, you do not get such luxurious accommodation on this trail. Manaslu circuit Nepal trek accommodation is fairly basic in terms of service but very convenient.

Your accommodations will be at lodges or teahouses.  These teahouses have a common place for dining and relaxing. You can stay warm around the fire at night. These teahouses and lodges are run by the local people.

 Dharmasala, where you have to spend one night at a classical traveler’s rests like an old inn. It provides an opportunity to experience true rural accommodation in the Manaslu region.

So, for trekking the Manaslu Circuit in Nepal, you need to pack up a reliable and warm sleeping bag. You will get the menu where we stay and certain items of food are mentioned in it.

Food costs between USD 3-8 depending on where and what you eat.

Accommodation is not a big issue to trek in Manaslu as it is less crowded. However, you cannot expect luxurious hotels and lodges.

You get accommodation either in tea houses or in simple lodges, but you don’t need to spend overnights in a tent except in Dharmsala.

Many tea houses were damaged in 2015 by a devastating earthquake, but most of them are now repaired and renovated, and it is safe to stay in. Most of the rooms are on a twin-sharing basis, and usually charges $6-$8 USD per night.

If you want a single room to rent, then you should pay full price.
