Manaslu Circuit Trek explores around the 8th highest mountain in the world, Mt. Manaslu. Surrounded by the Annapurna range in the west and Ganesh Himal in the east, Manaslu is one of the most beautiful 8,000 meters plus mountains. Manaslu region was opened for trekkers in 1992. Back then, the lack of accommodation along the trail had made Manaslu Circuit Trekking very expensive and challenging. This had resulted in fewer flow tourists, making the route pristine and unspoiled. Moreover, this region comes under the restricted area in Nepal, so you have to take a special permit from the government of Nepal to go on Manaslu Circuit Trek 15 Days. 

Trekking along the off beaten trail, you will go through sub-tropical to alpine forests, where you will get to see exotic vegetations, flowers, and medicinal herbs. Likewise, the trail also includes raging rivers, thrilling suspension bridges, beautiful villages, and a high pass. As the Manaslu region is located along the border of Nepal and Tibet, you will get to see a  rich cultural blend. The locals here are mostly followers of Hinduism and Buddhism. You will come across many ancient monasteries, chortens, stupas, and prayer flags on the way. Likewise, you will get to experience the unique lifestyle and warm hospitality of the locals. 

You will explore Birendra Tal, Manaslu Base Camp, and Pungyen Gompa. The trail crosses the difficult Larkya La Pass. You will get to see impressive landscapes and panoramic views of the Himalayan mountains like Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m), Himalchuli (7,893 m), Ngadi Chuli (7,871 m), Mt. Kang Guru (6,981 m), Himlung Himal (7,126 m), Ganesh Himal (7,422 m), Shringi Himal (7,165 m), Lamjung Himal (6972 m)a, and several others along the way. The heavenly beauty and exclusiveness of the region have made the Manaslu Circuit Trek a bucket list destination. 

Several tea houses have been opened in the region in the last few years, which has made the trail approachable. Today, Manaslu Circuit Trekking has become the new Annapurna Circuit Trekking with an extraordinary journey and unbelievable views. Still, not many travelers have visited this trek yet. You will get ample time to unwind and enjoy the tranquillity of the Himalayas. You can get in touch with us to know about the Manaslu Circuit Trek cost or book the trip.
