Pristine mountain views, rich culture and genuine adventure sum up the trek experience around the 8156m high Mt. Manaslu. Opened in 1992, this area offers a combination of rich cultural heritage, unsurpassed beauty and biological diversity. Beginning in Gorkha, home of the celebrated Gorkha soldiers; visit the ancient palace of king Prithivi Narayan Shah. Soon after, civilization fades and we glimpse ancient villages, observing the simple agricultural habit of its people.
Isolated until 1989, the Dolpo area is hard to match for its surreal beauty and stunning charm. Situated at the rain-shadowed side of the Himalaya, the rugged scenery shows dramatic views, compared to similar altitude elsewhere in the kingdom.
Mustang had been a forbidden land thus far. It is opened for a limited number of tourists. Lo Manthang (Mustang) is located north of the main Himalayan chain between the snow capped mountain on the east and west bordering Tibet and, relatively wide and leveled ridge towards north with pass not higher than 4,600 m. The climate and land is dry and arid. Villages are located in the valley at the altitude of 3,300 m. to 4,000 m, where important historical sites are also located. From Kagbeni to Tzug; as you walk towards north the Kali Gandaki valley extends and becomes broader. Walk to Samar; it is surrounded by the ruins of temples and fortes. Visit the famous cave at Rongbyoung Chorten. It has carvings of many deities on the stone walls: the figure of Padmasambhava dominates all the deities. The famous cave speaks of the history of this valley of Lo before the advent of Buddhism. The travel from Giling to Tsarang passes through important ruins at Gemi. As Tsarang is approached after crossing the passes the monastery is evidently visible. In the monastery the fresco painting of thousand Buddha, hanging thankas and antique ceiling, and other sacred objects are reminder of its rich cultural past.
The Dhaulagiri trail follows the Myagdi Khola. Passing through the settlements of Darbang and Muri, the country is still quite heavily populated with scattered villages and farming land. Beyond Muri, the Myagdi Khola swings north and the landscape becomes much more rugged and sparsely populated. A key landmark along the trek is French pass (5360m). Your guide will take special care to monitor effects of elevation amongst group members, especially on the section between French pass and Dhampus pass (5250m).
