Manaslu trekking is still considered as off-the-beaten trail, pristine and full of wilderness. It has been categorized as a restricted area, which means only group-based and limited tourists are allowed to do Manaslu trekking every year.
Manaslu trekking is located in Manaslu region, in north-western region of Nepal. On this trek, trekkers have the opportunity to circumambulate Mt. Manaslu (8163m), the eighth highest mountain in the world. You will also get a majestic glimpse of Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, Ngadi Chuli, and Himchuli. Manaslu Base Camp at 4900m is the highest point of this trek and Samagaon near Tibet (China) border is the farthest village you will trek to.
The trekking trail goes through Manaslu Conservation Area which is lush with flora and fauna. Also experience the Tibetan culture and Buddhism of locals living near Nepal-Tibet (China) border, visit ancient gompas (Pungyen Gompa, Ribum Gompa etc.) and follow the ancient trade route between Nepalese and Tibetans.
Manaslu Trekking is best done during Spring (Mar-May) and Autumn (Sep-Nov). The area is well connected with all the major cities including Kathmandu and Pokhara by road network.
