Manaslu valley is offers you the most amazing ethnic and scenic diversity, providing with pristine mountain views, rich culture heritage, unsurpassed Himalayan beauty, and a rich mountain biological diversity. Manaslu at 8163 meters (26, 775') is the 8th highest peak in the world which literately means "The Spirit-Mountain" in the local dialect, referring to the benevolent and strong deity, which dwells within. Trekking in Manaslu is one of the most delightful adventures which lead us to high Himalayan passes, purely Tibetan villages, spectacular snow-peak panoramas and wonderful campsites. This region is restricted because of its close immediacy with Tibetan border and is now open, but only for organized groups.
This trek starts right from Arughat Bazaar which is 8 hours drive from Kathmandu city and goes along the Gandaki River, with great view of Manashlu and Himal Chuli. We continue our trek through the several villages like Soti Khola, Machha Khola, Jagat and so on. The trek accomplishes an altitude of 5100m at the Larke La La pass, connecting the periphery of the legendary Tibetan plateau. We continue descend passing through villages like Samagaon, Bhimmanthang and finally to Beshisahar where our trek ends.
