Manaslu Trek

Among the various famous trekking options, Manaslu trek is the vigorous trek in the vicinity of Mt. Manaslu – the eighth highest mountain in the world with an altitude of 8,163m. The Manaslu Trek of 144 km skirts the Manaslu massif over the pass down to Mt. Annapurna. The trek starts at Soti khola, gateway to Buri Gandaki Valley where a deep long river gorge- Buri gandaki exists . There are few tea houses along the trail which are of basic standards.

Along the journey, you will be passing through Manaslu Conservation Area which is home to 11 types of forest and a prime habitat for snow leopard, Himalayan Thar and Blue Sheep. Also at Samagaon, you can go on an excursion to Manaslu Base Camp. One of the challenging sections comes up while crossing Larkya La Pass at 5160m.

Along the trail, spectacular views of Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Himalchuli awaits you. You will have plenty of time to interact with the local people who are called Nupris and visit Buddhist gompas such as Shringi Gompa, Mu and Rachen. The trail connects the Annapurna circuit at Dharapani and drops down to Besisahar with the option of continuing trekking to Annapurna region in one’s own desire.

The Manaslu trek is an absolutely confirmed option if you would like to choose the less crowded trailhead nearest to the Kathmandu valley; still adventurous packed.
