Manaslu Circuit Trek
Manaslu meaning the spirit in the Sanskrit is one of the best treks in Nepal. For those looking for an alternative to the more popular Everest Base Camp or Annapurna circuit treks. The Manaslu region is a restricted area and despite it becoming more popular each year.
The Manaslu Circuit trek, a remote trek of cultural and topographical diversity, is known for its spectacular Himalayan views including Manaslu, 8156 m, the breathtaking beautiful Larke La Pass (5160 m), a mix of Gurung and Tibetan traditional villages and its beautiful Tibetan Buddhist monasteries (Gompas). The scenery provides all Nepal has to offer; you’ll trek from the subtropical jungle at lower elevations, through the Himalayan foothills to the high, cold and challenging crossing of the Larkya la above 5,100 meters/17,000 feet.
This is physically challenging trek, so trekkers should be in decent physical condition.
