The Manaslu Trek is one of the five best treks in the world. It is a challenging route even for experienced trekkers: 17days trek, 150 to 200 miles of trekking route depending on the exact itinerary, two high passes, Rupina-La and then the even higher Larkya-La pass, with 10 days’ hard walk between them. The total elevation gain and loss on the trek is nearly 53,000 feet.
The Manaslu Trek has sort of replaced the previously famous Annapurna Circuit. Manaslu lies just 50 km East of Annapurna Circuit and has no roads or alike (which Annapurna Circuit has nowadays). The entire Manaslu trekking trail is fantastic, starting at low altitude and gradually gaining altitude day-by-day. The habitat in which we will be trekking has pristine nature and great mountain landscape.
The natural scenes combined with high altitude glacier lakes gives a great feeling of peace and tranquility. The rich flora and fauna is outstanding. You will also likely meet climbers attempting to climb Mt Manaslu, the world's eight highest mountain in the world (8,156 meters). You will be getting great and close-up views of Mt. Manaslu several times. Aside from great trails and high altitude variation, this trek will also lead you through many local villages and you will pass by many monasteries.
If you are able to walk up to 6-7 hours a day plus a couple of days rest for acclimatisation, you can do this trek.
