During the beginning and ending days of the trip, when you will be in the capital city, you will be staying in a luxurious hotel. However, the trek being in quite a remote area, you will be staying in tea houses.

The trek of Manaslu Circuit is remote when compared to the famous trek at Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp. Thus throughout the trek, this may affect you slowly in various ways. Sometimes you might have to share bedrooms, bathrooms, and toilets. You must not expect facilities at such a point. But be sure you will get a good place to stay and fuel your body.

While you stay in Kathmandu, you will get top-quality services and meals of your choice. But during the trek, there are only limited things we can provide. The trek itself being in a remote area hinders your lavish services. Thus for food, you can expect typical dhal bhat.

Services such as Telephone, Internet, and Battery charging may be available in some parts, but these come up with a charge on them. Trekking regions being isolated from urbanization, it may be hard to get quality services.
