Manaslu Trekking

Manaslu TrekkingManaslu trekking is considered one of the most challenging treks in Nepal. Manaslu offers a unique opportunity to experience a reasonably "untouched" region of Nepal. This region of Nepal sees few trekkers, which makes a visit here more exclusive and unspoiled. Manaslu trek is totally a camping trip. There are challenging trails and no hotels and lodges on the way. The pristine beauty it offers is worthwhile taking the challenge. Part of the trek falls beyond the Himalayan range, in a valley called Tsum. 

Manaslu trekking is geographically and culturally charming. Unlike other parts of Nepal, Manaslu is a very fine trekking purpose which offers huge mountain scenery, Tibetan culture, amazing glacier lakes, old monasteries, leading ethnic groups, typical Nepalese houses, green forest full of pines, oaks, rhododendrons bamboo and fascinating flora and fauna. It has been open since 1991; it provides spectacular beauty along the border of Nepal and Tibet and is now a controlled trekking route, allowing organized trekking group’s special permits to gain entry into this region to venture round its spectacular circuit.
