Around Manaslu Trek


An exciting route circumnavigating the World's eighth highest peak, Manaslu (8,163 m) was officially opened to trekkers in 1991, but mountaineering expeditions have long had access to the area.

The attraction of the under trekked trails and high mountain scenery is hard for the seasoned trekker to resist. This trek gives an insight into both Nepalese Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist cultures. Manaslu trek passing through Labubeshi is an unfolding natural phenomenon of bio physical dynamics. Leaving behind the historical town of Gorkha and Arughat, the trail follows the magnificent deep blue waters of Buddhi Gandaki, entering a wild gorge that cuts between Ganesh (7,429 m) and Himalchuli (7,893 m), where villages are linked by precipitous trails that make few concessions to the knees! Ascending, we gain our first views of Manaslu.

The trek starts from Gorkha, continues over Larkya La pass (5,133 m) down to Marshyangdi and ends up at Besishar.
