Trip Overview

When it comes to mentioning a beautiful trek in a remote place, Manaslu Circuit Trek tops the list. This trek takes you to the district called Gorkha. You will be in the natural beauties, and therein lies Manaslu, the world’s eighth highest mountain. As you head to this mountain, you will have a great cultural experience in the villages where you stop for the night and where you will have your lunch. The trekking trail of the Manaslu Circuit is not well – defined, so it comes in the category of an off the beaten trek. Another reason why it is called so is, very few trekkers come to trek there. Of all the off the beaten treks of Nepal, Manaslu Circuit Trek is the best.

Highlights of Manaslu Circuit Trek

Manaslu Circuit is a platform to observe the best view of Manaslu Himal, Annapurna Ranges, and Gangapurna. Its trekking trail takes you to one of the highest passes of Nepal called the Larkya La. It is far more adventurous than the Everest Base Camp Trek and shows you some of the best mountain scenes of Nepal. The trekking trail also takes you to the Manaslu Conservation Area, which is dotted with glacier lakes, cultural resources, biodiversity, and 50 species of useful plants.

Accommodation

You will be staying at a 3-star hotel (Value) in Kathmandu on bed and breakfast twin sharing with attached bathroom. During the time of trekking, you will be staying at the best possible Guesthouse/ Mountain Teahouse or Lodge accommodation.
