Overview


Manaslu trekking leads along the Budhi Gandaki River, the popular holy river which originates from the snowcapped Mountains. ‘Budhi’ means an old woman. Therefore, this river can be said as Old Gandaki River. Manaslu (8163m) trekking was opened for tourists only in 1992. It is still not the regular trekking trail as it was used only for the expedition. Not being connected to the big cities, Manaslu area still offers the natural vegetation with beautiful flora and fauna.

Manaslu trekking starts from Gorkha, the home town of former Royal family of Nepal. Before starting trekking we do sightseeing in the old Royal Palace in Gorkha,built in the fortress style with goddess Kali temple. It is a wilderness trekking that passes through the typical Nepali villages and rural market centre like Arughat Bajar which is the old busyness centre of Gorkha district. The trail leads to the height of Larkya pass (5213m). Manaslu trekking ends at Beshisahar which is the starting point of the Annapurna Circuit.

The spectacular mountain views and bio-cultural diversity are the delightful adventures of Manaslu trek. At the low land there is the inhabitation of Gurung ethnic groups, mainly associated with agricultural work. Upon the arrival to the Himalayan range, tourists get to meet with the local ethic people, strongly influenced by the Tibetan culture and tradition.

  • Though the whole trek is very beautiful and important, Samagaun is the most important part of this trek. Samagaun is the home of Tibetan people who arrived here 500 years ago. At the same time, they brought Tibetan culture and traditions together. From here, you can see brilliant views of Manaslu Himal too.
