A pristine trekking circuit allows you to circle around Mt. Manaslu, the world's eighth highest peak. Visit untrampled trails through rural Nepal with epic views that have to be seen in all their glory. With few visitors encountered along the way this region is a very different experience from a trek in the Everest amd Annapurna regions which are generally crowded with trekkers.
Manaslu (8,152m) is an opportunity to enjoy a quiet time trekking in pure bliss away from the noisy trappings of a modern world.
The trek on an ancient trail along which you enjoy authentic Nepali culture and hospitality, promises breathtaking views of Mt. Manaslu and other Himalayan peaks always on the background. Be prepared to witness ancient cultures and almost medieval lifestyle of the people as you trek up north towards the peaks.
Modernization and commercialization have not yet touched upon the purity of the local people's lifestye, so your trek to Manaslu will be akin to time-travel. The trail has teahouses along the way for a night halt, but one could opt for a camping trek and sleep under the stars.
There is internet access, and phones as well as other electronic devices can be charged at the teahouses along the trail. The trek makes for a great photo opportunity so you will hvae something to take back home to reminisce. All you need is a decent camera!
Manaslu shares much of its culture and history with its neighboring territory, Tibet. Buddhism is the major religion here as showcased by the Buddhist monasteries, architecture, and tradition all the way.
The region, which was officially opened to foreign tourists only in 1991, falls in the Restricted Area zone and tourists must acquire Trekking Permit from the Department of Immigration in addition to the TIMS card to enter this region.
