Manaslu

Manaslu trekking is a fascinating course, the Manaslu, Known as “three peaks”. It is a well- loved trek from Gorkha or Trisuli Bazar to the Burhi Gandali, passing through a huge precipitous valley to the contrasting world of Sama, crossing snow-covered Larkya La and descending to the Marsyangdi Khola, All supplies necessary for the trip (including food and kerosene) must be carried in and all rubbish must be portered out. As it is a long course, you must be in good physically and have extra days for rest during the trek. Sama, before you cross the pass, it is ideal for this; you can enjoy strolling about the glacial lake and Pugen Glacier there.

Trekking around Manaslu offers a unique opportunity to experience relatively “untouched” region of Nepal. Opened for trekking only since 1991, it provides spectacular beauty along the border of Nepal and China and is now a controlled trekking route which allows organized trekking groups special permits to venture round its spectacular circuit.

A diverse range of ecosystems and ethnic cultures, and a trail that puts one physically closer to Tibet than any other trek in Nepal.
