Manaslu Circuit Trek, one of the best treks in Nepal. This Trek combines the high of the Himalayas and its natural beauty with rich cultural heritage and biological diversity. Manaslu, located east of the Annapurna range is the world's eight highest peak and was opened to foreigners since 1992. Manaslu is a laborious trek that demands experience along with good physical well being. The rigorous trek ascends through Budi Gandaki River offering numerous rivers and waterfalls to Larkya La Pass (5213 m), the highest point in the trek, providing striking views of Himalchuli, Manaslu (8156 m), Ganesh Himal and other various mountains. En route, diverse landscape and variety in flora and fauna amazes anyone.
The laborious part of trekking along Manaslu circuit Trek starts from Samagoan (3450 m) where you could get lucky to see the frozen green lake of Birendra. However, the biggest challenge awaits - crossing the snow clad Larkye La pass (5213m), which is a mere 8 km from the Tibet border, and offers classic views of Himlung Himal (7,126 m), Cheo Himal, Gyaji Kang, Kang guru (6,981m) and Annapurna II (7,937m). From Larkya La (Larkya Pass), we take a steep descend along a snow covered trail down to Tanbuche. Then we follow a narrow trail to the Dudh Khola (White River) banks passing through magnificent forests of rhododendron, Pine and Juniper. A further descent transforms the alpine vegetation to subtropical greenness. Then the walk through the Marshyangdi River to Besishahar marks the end of the Trek.
An insight into Tibetan culture can be acquired through various monasteries and Tibetan settlements along with views of Tibet and mountain ranges. Bathing pools, lakes and waterfalls surrounded by alpine and tropical forests are abundant as you pass through tea houses and enjoy home stays.
The magical/mystical view of the mountains along with balanced ecosystems, rich culture and genuine adventure for trekkers as they climb to the base of Mount Manaslu makes the trek very special.
