With its great combination of the spectacular environment and the cultural collection of Nepal, the Manaslu Circuit Trek area has been generating a stir among travel lovers and adventure seekers thinking about the trek in Nepal. Trekking near Manaslu gives a unique chance to explore a comparably “untouched” part of Nepal and fantastic beauty along the border of Nepal and China.

Manaslu hiking route is situated in the western portion of Nepal at [8163m] & Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. The Manaslu hiking was allowed for trekking only in 1992 AD. The name Manaslu means “The spirit mountain”. Manaslu Circuit Walk is rich in its beauty with secluded and off-worn pathways since just a few individuals elect to do the trek. The fewer guests also offer more exclusiveness to the climb.

Manaslu Journey is one of the most excellent Treks in Nepal, a trek of exceptional ethnic and scenic range, breath-taking views of Mt. Himalchuli, Mt. Ganesh Himal, Mt. Manaslu itself, and other mountains. The highest pass of the Manaslu circuit hiking is Larkya- La Pass at 5235m all the way drop to the Dharapani which joins the main path of the Annapurna circuit walk through Bumthang. From Lara La pass, beautiful views of Cheo Himal, Himlung Himal, and Kang Guru are viewed, along with infrequent views of the Annapurna range. With the lush atmosphere in the backdrop of snow-capped mountains, this place is a gift for anybody seeking serenity and enjoyment among nature.
