Manaslu Circuit Trek

Code: NPL-TRK-MCT
18 Days 17 Night

Description

Manaslu Trek, the world’s 8th highest mountain, marks the geographical mid-point of Nepal’s Great Himalaya Trail, and there are few 8000 meter peaks that allow trekkers to get up so close. Its Sanskrit name means “Mountain of the Spirit” and this spirit seems to reflect into the peaceful villages and valleys that encircle it. The journey around Manaslu, is known as the Manaslu Circuit Trek.

Since 2010 it has been possible to complete the trek in traditional teahouses without the need to camp, and many people now compare it to the Annapurna Circuit Trek. Along the cliffs of the lower Budhi Gandaki river valley the trails are narrow and challenging, and wind through fascinating villages of varied character.

Higher up valleys widen and the mountain views are breath-taking. The highest point on the trek, the Larkya La (5135m) commands views over four converging glaciers and the steep walls of the Lamjung and Annapurna ranges. It’s the perfect trek for adventurous trekkers who want an authentic, off the beaten track experience.

The end of the trek connects to the beginning section of the Annapurna Circuit so they can be combined into one epic trek crossing two of Nepal’s most spectacular mountain passes
