Manaslu Circuit Trek – Trip Overview

Manaslu Circuit Trekking offers a unique opportunity to experience a quite primitive area of Nepal. In this area there are very few hikers, which make the visit here more unique and intact. Manaslu has been opened for trekking since 1991, offering spectacular views along the Nepalese and Tibetan borders. Now it is a restricted hiking route that allows special permits from groups of organized hikers to enter the area and venture along its spectacular Manasru circuit Views.

Manaslu has a unique environment and rich biodiversity, making the region one of the best tourist destinations in Nepal for many years. The majestic Himalayas of the Manaslu region include cultural diversity and natural beauty, romantic glacial lakes at high altitude and fascinating flora and fauna. All the characteristics of the area make it one of the most attractive places in Nepal. The Manaslu Circuit trail is less crowded and offers basic services for hikers. Hikers can eat at local restaurants and listen to them in the most basic spaces to learn about the local countryside life in Nepal. This is one of the reasons why hiking in this area is pure and worthwhile.
