Manaslu Circuit Trek
The Manaslu circuit trek is one of the best treks in Nepal. It takes you around the Manaslu Conservation Area and leads to a breathtaking view of the eighth highest mountain in the world.
The Manaslu Trek opened in 1992, and it rapidly grew in popularity thanks to its captivating natural essence, exclusiveness, and untouched beauty. The trek takes place along Nepal and Tibet border region, allowing us to experience the culture and lifestyle of both Hindus and Buddhists. The off-beaten trails take us through rich forests full of rhododendron, pine, cedar, birch, and juniper trees and delightful meadows.
The Manaslu circuit takes you from the steamy lowlands with their terraces of rice and millet, through the mighty gorges of the Budi Gandaki with its turquoise waters and amazing waterfalls. Suspension bridges in Manaslu trek are in a league of their own for both length and height, and the yearly monsoon often washes minor bridges away leaving trekkers to use semi-submerged rocks.
