Manaslu Circuit Trek takes place in the beautiful and remote Manaslu region, a diverse region of culture, tradition, mountains, and nature. Get off the beaten track and trek the multitude of different landscapes including rugged terrain, rocky ridges, sandy river beaches, waterfalls, suspension bridges and lush green forests.
The Manaslu Region is well protected by the Manaslu Conservation Area, which is a gateway to see protected flora and fauna, including endangered species, such as Snow-Leopard.
The view of the snow-capped mountains on this trek is stunning, particularly Mt. Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world. Along with this mountain, there are others, such as Sringi Himal, Himlung, Cheo Peak, Gyagi Kung, Kang Koru and Annapurna II.
The trekking trail connects with the ancient salt trading route and leads you to the flowing Budhi Gandaki River before passing through forests of rhododendron, pine, cedar, birch, and juniper, and it does not end there, but goes further, where it is decorated with mani-stone walls.
Along the trail, you will also come across monasteries to visit and admire, as well as reaching a stunning viewpoint of a glacier as you ascend the Larkya La Pass.
Take this opportunity to observe the Gurung and Buddhist cultures in this relatively untouched area.
