Located in the western part of Nepal, Mt. Manaslu [8163m] is the eighth highest peaks of the world. The region was opened for trekking only after 1992 AD. The name Manaslu in literal means “The spirit-mountain”.Far less crowded than other classic treks in Nepal, the trek has remained a true remote adventure. Manaslu Circuit trek covers all the appealing aspects of a classic trek in Nepal: epic scenery, stunning suspension bridge crossings and a 5100m (17,000-ft.) Himalayan pass.

Along with breathtaking views of  Himalayas stretching beyond horizons, it offers amazing landscapes, hill, and valleys with a beautiful alpine forest full of rhododendron, pines, hemlock, and oaks tree lines in the country.

Stunning sunrise in the high ridges of Manaslu, this location gives an aggregate of the rich way of life history, unsurpassed splendor, and natural variety. Ancient Buddhist Mani walls, monasteries, the challenging off the beaten trail, the crystal-clear glacial lakes are other attractions of the journey.

Natural scenery with high altitude dreamy glacier lakes along with enthralling floras and faunas, the circuit is slowly getting popular due to its remoteness. The main highlight of the trail is a traverse over high pass of Larkya-la at 5,153m/16901ft.
