Manaslu region is one of the most spectacular treks in the Himalaya located near Annapurna region that offer one of the finest trekking in the country. Many people liken the Manaslu area trekking to the Annapurna before it got busy! It is in a region which was closed to outsiders until the early 90’s and tourism is still restricted. It is also not quite as high as the Annapurna circuit and really is a stunning and less trodden path. The area offers alternative trekking packages to Annapurna for someone who wants something different in Nepal but still offers the most striking and jaw-dropping scenery.
Starting at the Budhi Gandaki, the trek goes through the narrow gorge between the Manaslu and Ganesh Himal ranges, with sleep almost perpendicular sides.
Passing through the Nupri valley, where the inhabitants appear Tibetan in look, speech and customs, the trail continues parallel to the Tibetan border, with sensational views of Manalsu North, Ngadi and Himalchuli peaks. Crossing the (5200 m) Larkey La pass, the trek descends to the Marsyangdi Valley with fantastic views of Himlung Himal, Annapurna range and other peaks.
The area offers Manaslu Circuit Trekking, Tsum Valley and Rupina la pass Trekking. If you are interested in exploring the Manaslu Region below are some of the itineraries, or alternatively, we can liaise with you to personally tailor your own itinerary.
