Manaslu Circuit Trek

16 Days




Manaslu Circuit trek geographically stands north of the medieval fortress town of Gorkha, the seat from where the recent kings of Nepal, past and present, set out to invade the rest of feudal Nepal in the 18th Century. Recent evidence shows the Manaslu Circuit trek is now slowly getting to become a teahouse trail, making way for hazy wood-mud-rock settlements of the Nupri Valley. And trekkers are Scot free to walk around the host of new trails being researched at this very moment. The Manaslu Circuit trek gives trekkers fabulous vistas of the four 7000m peaks of the Ganesh massif, and hikers go on to discover the divergent Tibetan-influenced traditions of the Tsumba people, who strictly disallow the slaughter of all living fauna in the area. And this has greatly benefited the endangered species like the Snow Leopard and the Red Panda and other animals in the area.
There’s so much in extraordinary landscapes of Manaslu to compete with the Annapurna region, it’s now high time the Manaslu region make its mark in this region. We need to branch off from the crammed trails of the more known regions that have dominated trekking for years. Forget the lively new teahouses for the moment, you’ll have the trails here all to yourself – if you do have any company, it’ll be with blue sheep, langurs, yaks and the countless colorful butterflies spinning around in dancing fashion in the thundering waterfalls of the Manaslu zone…
