Manaslu is one of the most spectacular treks in the Himalayan Mountain Range. It will reward the adventurous with an unparalleled alpine experience which is comparable to the Annapurna circuit. Mount Manaslu, the 8th highest peak on Earth, locally known as the ‘mountain of the spirit’, is one of the most spectacular Mountains in Nepal. It is also one of the most challenging treks in Nepal. The trek weaves its way through the Manaslu unspoiled region that had been off-limits until recently. It is now only open to organized trekking parties. The area offers a good mix of cultural diversity and fantastic mountain scenery. This is an extended and strenuous trek, circling the Manaslu range which only opened in 1992 for treks. The adventure goes north through the river valley of the Budhi Gandaki River and behind Mt. Himalchuli (7893m.), Peak 29 (7839 m.) and Mt. Manaslu (8118 m.) to cross the Larkya La Pass at 5213 m.. This amazing trek explores areas and culturals unchanged for centuries. In exchange for strenuous trekking the adventurer will be rewarded with brilliant mountain vistas of the Ganesh and Manaslu Himal ranges as well as a glimpse into the cultures of Nepalese tribes and the peoples of Gurung, Magar, Tamang and Bhotias (Tibetan). Starting at the Buri Gandaki, the trek goes through the narrow gorge between the Manaslu and Ganesh Himal ranges, with steep, almost perpendicular sides passing through the Nupri valley, where the inhabitants appear Tibetan in look, speech and customs, the trail continues parallel to the Tibetan border, with sensational views of Manaslu North, Ngadi and Himalchuli peaks. Crossing the 16000ft (ca 5250m) Larke La pass, the trek descends to the Marsyangdi valley, with fantastic views of Himlung Himal, the Annapurna range and other peaks.
