Trekking Destinations> Adventure Destination >Manaslu Trekking

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.

From here, begin your ascent through the Gandaki River valley, fed by innumerable rivers and water fall and plunge into its refreshing pools. From here the strenuous section begins and yaks begin to outnumber people in a rocky landscape in samagaon, visit the glacier green lake of Birendra, before crossing into mystic samdo,  a mere 15 km. from the Tibetan border. Here Tibetan monks inhabit sacred monasteries. There the views of the Tibetan plateau against stark white Himalayas make this a truly spiritual place. Continuing more monasteries await you in larkya bazaar a long biggest challenge – crossing larkya pass. This 5213 M snow – covered pass demands the utmost respect. Snow – covered peaks over 6500m tower above as we cross. The descent, once off the snow takes us through alpine, then tropical areas, bursting with ferns, bamboo, piunetrees, water falls and aqua – blue green lakes laced with cotton – white beaches. Finally, the Manaslu will disappear behind you as you descend to Beshishar (832m). This three week’s excursion will leave you with a sense peace and respect for the people of Nepal and its ecological wonders.
