overview

Manaslu region has shown improvement in the infrastructures of the region making trekking a more viable option for the trekkers who opt for this trekking trail. Nonetheless, it is not as crowded as the Annapurna or Everest trekking routes. Given the adventure and challenge of this trail, this Manaslu circuit and the Tsum Valley trek is considered by travelers, one of the best trekking journey in Nepal; it is said that all the hardships faced on the journey are totally worth the joy that comes afterward. The Larkya Pass at the altitude of 5106 meters is especially challenging to cross as it is covered in snow.

As much as this is an adventure trek, it is also a cultural trek because of the communities, lifestyle and culture you will get to explore as you travel along this trekking trail.

Manaslu is known as the “Mountain of Spirit” and it is the eighth highest mountain peak across the world with 8163 meters height.
