Manaslu Trek is a well-loved trekking route, for good reason. Pristine mountain views, rich culture and genuine adventure sum up a trek experience around Manaslu. Opened in 1992, this area offers a combination of rich culture heritage, unsurpassed beauty and biological diversity.
At 8163 meters, Manaslu is the 8th highest peak in the world and is located near the border between Nepal and Tibet. The name Manaslu means "the Spirit-Mountain" in the local dialect, referring to the benevolent and strong deity which dwells within. The Tibetan enclave of Nupri, north of Manaslu at the head of the Buri Gandaki, was closed to foreigners for years on account of its proximity to Tibet. The area was surreptitiously opened in 1991, but it took several years for the word to get out, keeping the area free from hordes of tourists.
If you are looking for a taste of real, extreme trekking in Nepal where you can experience the most breathtaking mountain scenery on earth, then look no further than the circuit of Manaslu!
