The Manaslu circuit trek is an underappreciated trek located in the remote western region of Nepal. The trek revolves around the Manaslu Mountain (8163m) which means “Spirit Mountain.” Like its name, the trek provides the opportunity to trekkers for a spiritual awakening by witnessing cultural heritage, unrivaled beauty, and extreme wilderness.
Unlike its sister treks Annapurna and Everest, the Manaslu Circuit trek is less crowded which makes the visit more appealing. This trek offers the experience similar to Annapurna a decade ago. The trail takes you through the roaring turquoise Budi Gandaki River, from Arughat to the apex point of the trek Larkya Pass. En route you’ll witness precarious bridges and stunning mountain views. As you ascent upwards, the landscape quickly transforms from the green countryside and lush green forests to unusual rocky terrains and crystalline glaciers. The trek provides you a glimpse into the Tibetan influenced culture, terrific sceneries of ice peaks like Manaslu, Himchuli, Himlung and Larke peak. Trekkers get to enjoy the fantastic local food and culture which gives them an insight into the village life.
Tranquil environment, adventure, romance and value for money makes the Manaslu circuit trek one of the best.
