Manaslu Trek is an adrenaline filled trail. It gets riskier as it passes through gorges that are narrower and covers landscape that is more dramatic, at times converging to just a few meters wide as steep cliffs rise up on either side. En route are amazing lakes, waterfalls, Buddhist monasteries and Tibetan villages. The inhabitants of these villages are direct descendants of the Tibetan Immigrants and thus their dressing, language and culture is purely Tibetan. It runs parallel to the Annapurna Circuit but is much quieter and less crowded. In fact, some trekkers call this the new Annapurna Circuit.
