We offer an unforgettable trip around Manaslu that can also be combined with the Annapurna Circuit trek. Enquire directly with us for more information!
At 8163m, Manaslu is the eighth highest peak in the world and lies east of the Annapurnas, in central Nepal. The circuit around the mountain is compared to that of Annapurna in terms of its magnificent and extraordinarily varied scenery, but without the crowds!
From the sub-tropical Buri Gandaki Valley, the route winds through deep gorges to reach a remote desert-like region bordering Tibet. Here in a hidden valley, that until quite recently was out of bounds to trekkers, the people are Buddhists of Tibetan descent living in villages with names like Li, Lo and Sho.
Pagoda gates, prayer walls and gompas (monasteries) are among the architectural wonders we pass, set to a backdrop of breathtaking views of Manaslu. The 5135m pass of Larkya La brings further rewards as another dazzling array of peaks come into view. Descending to the hot springs of Darapani, the route joins the Marsyandi River, which leads back to the trail head at Besi Sahar.
