Manaslu Trek

Manaslu (8,156m) is the world’s eighth highest peak. This area, situated close to the Annapurna massif, was only opened to trekkers in 1992 and is now acknowledged as one of the finest trekking routes. Heading north from Gorkha, along the Budhi Gandaki River, the trail turns westwards into a high alpine valley with typical Tibetan villages and a number of fine monasteries. A steep ascent to Larkya La pass (5,212m) is rewarded by stunning views of the Manaslu and Annapurna peaks. At Dharapani, we join the Annapurna circuit and follow the Marsyangdi River south. As beautiful as the famous “Annapurna circuit”, this trek leads us through unspoiled regions where it is unlikely you will meet many other trekkers.
