Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of the most remarkable treks of Nepal and is also a part of the Great Himalaya Trail. Due to its rich sceneries and ancient traditions and culture, Manaslu has attracted many travelers to explore the foothills of the eighth highest mountain in the world, Mt Manaslu (8163m). The trek exposes you to the culture and lifestyle of various ethnics and gives you an authentic taste of the Nepalese way of life.
Manaslu Trek, although neighbor to the popular Annapurna Trek, sees lot fewer trekkers, allowing you to experience the purest forms of nature and culture. The trek that starts from Arughat takes you through picturesque villages with mixed communities of Chhetri, Brahmin, and others and also through Tibetan influenced villages situated in the lap of the gorgeous Manaslu Himal Range. You follow the raging Budhi Gandaki River from the start of the trek until reaching the base of the frozen pass of Larkya La (5160m), from where the river originates. Larkya La (5160m) is believed to be the most dramatic pass in Nepal as it is often covered in snow, creating challenges to the trekker.
However, the panoramic view of the Manaslu Himal Range and Annapurna Range that is seen from the top of the pass is worth every sweatdropped. The trek goes through verdant forests with rhododendron, oak, fir, and pine and takes to some ancient monasteries like Punggen Gompa and Pema Chyoling Lhakang that aside from displaying the culture of Tibetan Buddhism also host amazing views of various snow-capped mountains. On the way back, the trek follows the beautiful Marsayangdi River until you catch your drive back to Kathmandu in Besisahar.
