Manaslu Trekking

Manaslu (8,156m) is the world’s eighth highest peak. From the Hindu middle hills culture to the Tibetan high-country dwellers, the Manaslu Circuit trek in the heart of the Nepal Himalaya is a cultural trek par excellence, without a doubt one of the best treks in Nepal. Manaslu, ‘The Mountain of the spirit’ and from upper Nubri must be one of the most beautiful ones; the spectacular mountain scenery has to be seen to be believed.

 

We trek the classic high trek around Manaslu from the historic town of Gorhka, with its wonderful ‘durbar’, or palace, to Kutang in lower Manaslu and on to upper Nubri, where trade with Tibet continues as it has for hundreds of years. We experience incredible mountain panoramas after the first few days, and add extra day’s at the most beautiful villages before the Larkya La (pass).
The diverse Tibetan culture, spectacular scenery and snow peaks of the Manaslu Himal Circuit make it one of the most interesting, as well as one of the most challenging, treks in Nepal.
