detailed description

Manaslu Trekking could never have been this better with one more added to its list.You can combine the Manaslu Circuit with the Tsum Valley, a beautiful, sheltered valley where century old Tibetan traditions prevail. It is no doubt that the trekking in the Manaslu Himalaya region is one of those renowned adventure treks in Nepal where along the way you will be honoured with magnificent views of the Annapurna Massifs and Dhaulagiri peaks that’s literally pleasing to the soul.

This trek was officially opened to tourist in 1991, 
Very few Trekkers visit this pristine region which makes a visit here all unique and unspoiled. This area is marked by two cultural and historical highlights : Gorkha which is the ancestral seat of the Royal Shah dynasty and the temple of Manakamana. The trekking in this region is very unique since the starting points elevated as 1000 meters to the high pass of 5200 meters.

During manaslu trekking, we ascend to the foot of the north face of Manaslu. We will be welcomed with a stunning panorama and mesmerizing aspects of  massifs. We begin our trek with the drive to Arughat from Kathmandu and then follow the windy Budhi Gandaki River northwards to the village of Deng.The Gandaki River is fed by numerous rivers and waterfalls, and the rushing, rumbling tumult of the frigid waters accent the silence of towering pines and lush bamboo groves and perhaps the best trekking trail.Apart from Manaslu, we will also get a great opportunity to explore the stunning panorama of other mountains including Himlung Himal , Annapurna massif, and Ganesh Himal Peaks.In short, this trek is not only for the adventure seekers, but also for nature lovers who wishes to bask in the charming beauty of lush landscapes, verdant meadows, freshwater lakes and the gigantic himalayas. Manaslu trekking is loved by every trekkers around the world.

Manaslu region is encircled by the eight highest mountains of the world, close to Chinese border which offers you a real challenge. This trekking gives you an idea about intact tradition & culture, high & remote mountain trails.

Tibetan monks inhabit sacred monasteries & combined with the views of Tibetan plateau against stark white Himalayas all proves it as a truly spiritual place. As we continue further, we can visit very old monastery "Sama Gompa" at Sama Gaou, along with close up view of Mt. Manasalu, and our biggest challenge will be crossing Larkya La pass (5214m), here you are rewarded with great mountains views & then we descend from alpine to tropical areas, bursting with ferns, bamboos, pine, waterfalls & aqua-blue green lakes laced with cotton- white beaches.
In Brief: You will visit the legendary town Gorkha from where the name brave Gurkha starts. The Himalayan Range of Manaslu, villages of Midhill peoples and their living. Terraces of crops field. The area less visited and restricted area of Nepalese Government as it is fragile land.
