Manaslu Round Trek - 23 Days

Manaslu Round Trek is considered as one of the most challenging treks in Nepal. Opened in 1992, this area offers a combination of rich culture heritage, unsurpassed beauty, and biological diversity. Manaslu trekking is highly focussed trekking route of our company. Manaslu is the remote area of Nepal. We hire the local people as your guide, porter so that they will be employed and you will be enjoying at the same time. Local people are the best choice because they can give you detail information about the culture, route and environment.

Manaslu Round Trek is a fascinating course around Manaslu (8,163m) and its three peaks known as the 'Japanese Peaks' ascending along Budhi Gandaki River and through contrasting worlds of Lho, Sama gaon (3,450m) and crossing the highest point of the trek Larkya La (5,213m), which is a mere 8 km from Tibet border. A classic vista opens to the west – Himlung Himal (7,126m), Cheo Himal, Gyaji Kang, Kang guru (6,981m) and Annapurna II (7,937m). From Larkya La, the descent is steep and usually snow covered upto Tanbuche. From Tanbuche the narrow trail enters a wide meadow where we camp. Then we follow the white Dudh Khola river banks passing though magnificent forests of rhododendron, Pine and Juniper which then give way to apple orchards around Thonje and Dharapani. As we descend further the alpine vegetation gives way to subtropical lushness. We then walk down the Marshyangdi Khola river valley to Besishahar, the end point of the trek. From Besishahar there is regular local bus service to Dumre and from then on to Kathmandu by private transport.
