Overview of Manaslu Circuit Trekking

The word “Manaslu” means “Mountain of the Spirit” in Sanskrit language. Manaslu region is one of the best selections for trekkers which provide variety of trekking options. The popular Manaslu trekking route of 177 kilometers (110 miles), skirts the Manaslu Mountain over the pass down to Annapurna.This is one of the most happening and remarkable Himalayan journey that goes across Budi Gandaki, passing stunning valley with astonishing view of Manaslu and crossing the famous Larkya La pass with contrast with Sama region before returning via Marshyangdi.

Despite of its grand natural beauty, it receives few trekkers compared to other established trekking route in Annapurna and Everest region. This trek is suitable for everyone with no proper trekking experience. You can also interact with the local peoples and know about their cultures and traditions. This is one of the fantastic and fulfilling journeys that one can have in life.
