With its amazing scenery, rich culture and easy access, The Manaslu Trekking has been increasingly popular as the new trekking destination in Nepal. However, it witnesses less number of trekkers compared with other established trekking routes.
Manaslu Trekking is an amazingly beautiful trek with breathtaking views of Mount Manaslu (8163m) and the Ganesh Himal massifs. Along the trail you encounter an interesting Buddhist villages mixed with Hindu and Tibetan religion and culture. The trail follows the spectacular Budhigandaki River all the way from Arughat till its source just below the Larkya Pass (5125 m).
You start the trek from low altitude, at around 700 m. As trail ascends one can enjoy different landscapes ranging from green countryside, lush forests, to spectacular high altitude landscapes while walking alongside glaciers. The crossing of the Larkya Pass (5125 m) is the highlight of the trek. It can be tough when there is snow. However, the stunning landscape with the mighty Himalayas towering straight above you and the spectacular glaciers along the way make it an unforgettable experience.
The descent passes through beautiful alpine meadows at Bimtang before joining the main Annapurna Circuit route for Besisahar.
This is ADVENTURE travel, and many of the trip destinations in this site are remote areas, within under developed countries, where events are less predictable than is usually the case in. The unexpected is the norm in these areas and, despite painstaking planning and organization, our adventure trips can never be taken for granted like regular trips. Many of the places that we visit do not have the same quality of emergency health and safety services that you are used to in the developed world. Internal flights can be canceled, road transport is generally uncomfortable and unreliable, and hotels often do not approach the standards of the West.
IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS, YOU SHOULD NOT TRAVEL WITH US. This unpredictability also means that the itineraries that we put forward for each of our trips should be seen as statements of intent, rather than as contractual obligations. A variety of factors, including weather, transport difficulties and political instability, might dictate that we change any itinerary. The trip leader will make any changes that are necessary, after consultation with the group. Only rarely will such changes be significant, and we will always do everything within our powers to minimize the effects of the enforced changes. We cannot be held responsible for the results of changes or delays, irrespective of how they are caused.
