Manasalu Trekking

Around Manaslu trekking in Nepal exhibits the sensational mountain vistas, fascinating culture and biological diversity, spanning altitudes from 600 to 5000 meter - one of the Nepal's last Himalayan jewels. This trek suits best to those who are looking for the challenging but less trodden trekkking in the Himalayas, is also a part of the Great Himlayan trail. New tea houses are being build on entire Manaslu trek routes now a days thus we are organizing this trek in tea house mode which used to be a fully camping trek few year back. The Manaslu trekking in Nepal is also becoming the best alternative of classic Annapurna cicuit due to the road construction in some sections of Annapurna region.

We start our Manaslu trek from Arughat after the drive from Kathmandu. Trekking along the BudhiGandaki River, the trail meanders, scrambles and climbs its way along the confines of the vallery. Much of the round Manaslu trekking in Nepal is in the region known as Nupri, and area of higher the Hindu culture is being replaces by Buddhist features of Mani walls, Khanyi gates and Chortens as does the topography changes. This Manaslu trekking region is a natural habitat for elusiv wild animals including the snow leopard, grey wolf, musk deer, Himalayan Thar and blue sheep, Keep your eyes open!! Trekking routes at lower Manaslu section is already rebuild which is being effected by the April 2015 earthquake and we have been running trips on wholw around  Manaslu trekking routes since spring 2016 without any problem - once again totally safe for trekking in Manaslu region.

Larke la - a challenging pass in around Manaslu trek in Nepal.

Larke la pass is the highest vantage point in the Manaslu trek, is a classic and tough ancient salt trading route that links the BudhiGandaki with Marshyangdi valley literally Manaslu to Annapurna region. The view from the Larkya pass is simply Superb with Chuli, Himlung, Cheohimal, Larke peak, Annapurna II and Mr. Manaslu. Further we descent through the beautiful alpine valleys at Bintang and Jagat to join the classic round Annapurna route before diving back to Kathmandu to end the exhilarating journey of Around Manaslu trek in the vastness of Himalayas.
