Manaslu Circuit Trekking is a restricted area trek in Nepal that marks the world class adventure. The trail lies in the north-west of Nepal, which is bounded by the Budi Gandaki and Marshyangdi River that passes through the Tibetan Buddhist influenced ethnic communities and ultimately crosses the Larke Pass at 5160 meters altitude. Due to the undisturbed trail with abundant scenery it offers, Manaslu trek entices the trekkers around the world.
With the restricted area permit, the journey begins from Soti Khola. The up and down trail randomly lead you through the oak and rhododendron forest, sometimes walk along the Budi Gandaki valley and through the terraced hillside. One of the interesting aspects of Round Manaslu Trek is that you frequently encounter with the ancient monasteries, chhortens and Mani walls along with the Tibetan Buddhist settlements. Sama Gaon and Samdo are some of the representative villages. The hospitality and delicious meals during the Manaslu trekking offers you a lifetime memory. The technical section of Larke Pass is no doubt, extremely amazing with the scenery of the snow covered peaks, including Mt. Manaslu (8156 meters), Lamjung Himalayas, Ganesh Himal, Langtang range and some of the Annapurna peaks. The next section of the trek goes through the Marshyangdi River valley, connecting the Annapurna circuit trail and passing through the lower altitude forests.
