Overview of Manasalu Trek

Manaslu trek is one of the toughest and most rewarding trekking trails under the shadow of Mt. Manaslu (8156m), the eighth highest mountain in the world. Trekking in Manaslu will involve crossing several high Himalayan passes including Larkya La pass (5213m). Along the trek, you will have crystal clear views of Manaslu Himal, Baudha Himal, Ganesh Himal ranges among others.

We will trek through Manaslu Conservation Area, which has been established in the valley to preserve its precious biodiversity and promote sustainable tourism. The area’s alpine landscape and unique ecosystem support varied wildlife including snow leopard, grey wolf, musk deer, blue sheep, and the Himalayan Thar. The region is also a storehouse of precious herbs and medicinal plants that have been used by Himalayan people for centuries.

The Manaslu Circuit trek is 180km in length, roughly 110 miles. Treks are beginning in the busy market town of Soti Khola, going up and back along a different path. This is a trek for someone who wants something different in Nepal but still offers the most striking and jaw-dropping scenery.

Many people associate the Manaslu Circuit trek to the Annapurna before it got busy. It is in a region which was closed to outsiders until the early ’90s and tourism are still restricted. It is not quite as high as the Annapurna circuit and really is a stunning and less trodden path. You will meet people along the way, and also yaks. There is only one rule of the road when meeting an oncoming yak.

The path is well used and the ascent is not overly difficult. The top of Larkya La provides astounding panoramic views of Manaslu. As well as observing the view of Cheo Himal, Himal Chuli, and Himlung Himal. The terrain is never dangerous or precipitous, it is still just a walk, but requiring the usual care. There is no climbing or special equipment required on the Manaslu Circuit trek.
