Nepal is the ultimate paradise for intrepid travelers who can enjoy various hiking tracks. It is a way to see some of the world’s top ten mountains in a single excursion. The Manaslu Trek was opened for trekkers since 1992. In the local dialect, the word Manaslu refers to the spirit mountain, the place of a real and robust Deity. Around Manaslu Circuit Trek is to experience an adventure that enables natural wonders, culture, and the fascinating views of mountains.
Around Manaslu Circuit Trek is increasingly popular, but it is still less popular than trekking routes in the Annapurna region. The Around Manaslu Trek is still remote and off the beaten path, despite its recent increase in popularity compared to the more popular Tea House treks in Nepal.
This route goes from Arughat to its source just below the Larkya Pass (5125 m) through the spectacular Budhi Gandaki River. The landscapes are extremely varied as you start low at around 700 meters and ranging from the green countryside and lush forests to stunning alpine meadows skirting massive glaciers. Manaslu is an ideal destination for both trekkers and mountaineers. For the extreme mountaineer, Manaslu Expedition is ideal as well as Larkya Peak for the beginners.
The crossing of the Larya – La can be difficult if there is snow. The Larkya – La is the highest point of the trek, whereas it connects Budi Gandaki with Marshyandi valley. The trail goes to the downhill towards Bhimthang, which passes through beautiful alpine meadows before joining the main Annapurna Circuit Trek route to the trailhead at Besisahar. Around Manaslu Trek is easily reachable from Kathmandu. It originally began in Arughat; however, with road construction, many trekkers start at either Barpak or Soti Khola start a little further up the trail.
