Manaslu Circuit Trek -19 days

Manaslu Circuit Trek -19 days

Manaslu the 8th highest peak in the world belongs to the Gorkha district of central Nepal along the Mansiri Himalayan range. This mountain was first climbed by a group of Japanese and Nepali climbers in 1956.

Trekking in Manaslu region is a great experience for culture and adventure. This trek comprises of sub-tropical foothills of the Himalaya to arid Trans-Himalayan pasture terrain bordering Tibet. Until a few years back the region was restricted for mass tourism to preserve the nature and unique cultural heritage. The route we follow is full of astonishing waterfalls, lakes and beautiful ethnic villages. Most of the people living in the upper regions are of Tibetan origin. The trekking trail follows the classic trading route along the Budhi Gandaki river valley. At its higher reaches, the region is divided into two ethnic habitats, Nubri and Tsum.

The region is dotted with austere Monasteries, Maniwalls, Chortens and many other religious landmarks. After a few hours of driving we reach the starting point Arughat of Gorkha. We begin our venture into this beautiful region and take several days to reach the township of Bensisahar passing many cultural villages, friendly people and high passes with extraordinary views of pristine Mountains.
