Manaslu Circuit Trekking and Travel

The Manaslu Circuit Trek stands out as one of Nepal's most breathtaking trekking routes, offering an authentic cultural experience amidst unparalleled alpine beauty and a rich array of flora and fauna.

This trek explores a relatively untouched region, only accessible to trekkers in the past two decades due to its sensitive border with Tibet. Nestled near the high Manaslu valley, the villages of Sama and Samdu offer a glimpse into this pristine landscape.

Traversing through a range of environments, from semi-tropical temperatures to alpine forests and eventually to the harsh ice-fields and glaciers of the Larkya-la pass, the journey is a true adventure. It culminates in joining the renowned Annapurna Circuit Trek, listed among the world's top ten adventure destinations.

Throughout the Manaslu Circuit Trek, travelers are treated to breathtaking views of the Manaslu, Boudha Himal, and Chuli peaks, extending towards Ganesh Himal in the east and Annapurna Himalaya in the west. The trek also provides an opportunity to immerse oneself in the diverse cultures, from the Hindu communities of the lowlands to the Tibetan Buddhist traditions of the higher altitudes.

The journey begins with an overland drive along a scenic highway, followed by a rough yet picturesque road leading to Soti-Khola. Trekking onwards, passing through villages like Jagat, Dyang, and Logaon, and finally reaching Samagoan, one encounters close-up views of Mount Manaslu, the world's eighth highest peak at 8,163 meters. Along the way, there are ample opportunities to engage with and learn from the rich Tibetan Buddhist culture that permeates the region.
