The Manaslu trek is a very popular trek in Nepal and probably one of Nepal's best treks. The trekking area is restricted meaning that it is required to obtain a special permit and also to have a guide with you when trekking in the area. The Manaslu trek lies north-west of Kathmandu in the Gorkha district. Mount Manaslu is the 8th highest (8163m) mountain in the world and is located in a remote area of Nepal, making trekking in the area much more authentic.
The Manaslu circuit trek will provide you with pristine mountain views and has a rich culture. The trek is rather challenging so you are required to be in a good physical condition. Especially the day of crossing the Larke Pass is challenging, where you will be reaching about 5000 meters.
The trek begins at Nepal's old capital Gorkha after 5 hours drive from Kathmandu. We visit historical sights in Gorkha and start walking along the Budi Gandaki river valley, with typical Nepalese villages, interesting landscapes and a gradually climb up to Samagaun. Samagaun is the final big settlement of the Manaslu Region, before we cross the Larkya la pass.
