Round Manaslu Trek

This strenuous trek circumnavigates the World’s eighth highest peak, Manaslu (8,163 m) range and is officially opened to trekkers in 1991. Though it is a strenuous and remote area trek, it is rewarded with brilliant mountain vistas of the Ganesh and Manaslu Himal ranges and insights into the cultures of a cross-section of ethnic Nepalese tribes and peoples, perhaps not available on any other trek.

Starting in the historical town of Gorkha and Arughat the trail follows along the bank of the river Budi Gandaki and passes through middle hills and finally emerge into the high, arid desert region that is actually a part of the Tibetan Plateau where people of Tibetan origin dwell and where the predominant religion is Tibetan Buddhism. This trek is challenging while crossing of the Larkya La Pass which requires excellent physical stamina
