Manaslu Circuit Trek

Manaslu circuit Trekking is one of the finest, more remote and spectacular trek in Nepal.While on the trip we get to marvel at the magnificent views of Mt. Manaslu (8163m), the eight tallest mountains in the world, coupled with a chance to witness the rich local heritage and biological diversity of the region. The highest point in this trek is the ‘Larkya La Pass’ which is widely believed to be one of the most dramatic pass crossing the Himalayas. Much of the trek involves walking on mountain trails, and is within the capabilities of people with good cardiovascular fitness. Still, it is important to note that trekking at altitudes above 3000m/10,000ft is more demanding on the body than walking at low elevations.

Manaslu trekking major ethnicity of area is Bhotia (known as Lama), Gurung and Karki and most of the local people follow Buddhism. Gurung, Nhubria, Tsumba, and Kutanggba are major languages spoken by these people.

People of the Manaslu Circuit and the Tsum Valley Trek areas still have a strong sense of attachment toward their traditional local culture and rich natural heritage. Ancient Gumba, Mani walls and Chhortens abundantly represent the rich culture and natural region. Mt.Manaslu 8163mtrs, the eight highest peaks in the world is another major attraction of the region
