Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of the best treks in Nepal to the heart of world’s 8th highest mountain, Mt. Manaslu (8156m). This trek is a true off the beaten track adventure and also a good alternative to other classic treks in Nepal.

Trekking Manaslu Circuit starts after an adventurous drive on the curvy Himalayan roads to the small town of Sothi Khola. Further on we will be hiking through terraced farmlands and lush rhododendron forests overlooking the majestic Himalayan peaks. We will take an acclimatizing break in the small village of Samdo before heading to the thrilling Larkya La Pass (5160m). We will be getting an insight of the local culture by spending every night with the local families during the journey. Some of the many highlights of Manaslu Circuit Trek are the alpine scenery, contrast of landscapes, high pass, amazing views of Annapurna & Manaslu Himalayan ranges, rich culture, unique settlements, and rare flora & fauna. If you wish to trek away from the crowd to soak in the the isolation of the Himalayas, this trek is the best option for you.
