Nepal is the ultimate paradise for the adventure junkies that get their thrill from the numerous trekking routes and options to see some of the top ten tallest mountains in the world in just one trekking journey. This trekking is growing in popularity as an alternative to Annapurna circuit trekking. So, it is no wonder that hundreds and thousands of people from all over the world visit Nepal every trekking season to experience a trip that allows them to experience a beautiful mixture of nature, culture, art and adventure. Though Nepal is a famous trekking destination now that allows tourists to enjoy the diverse terrain along with its variety of flora and fauna, it wasn’t always so. It wasn’t until 1991 that all parts of the trekking regions were open to the tourists. Since then a number of the trekking regions on the border of Nepal and Tibet have opened for tourism. One of such lovely treks is the Manaslu circuit trekking.
The Manaslu circuit trekking is one of the best treks known for its solidarity and preservation. This region sees very few visitors so that the trails are less trodden making the journey a peaceful, natural and beautiful experience perfect for those seeking a getaway from the everyday busy lives. Not just the spellbinding natural beauty, but the traditional Tamang and Sherpa settlements with their unique cultures are another highlight of the trip. The Manasli Circuit Trek tour starts from Kathmandu where we visit the UNESCO world heritage sites and then to Arughat from where the actual trekking begins. The entire route is adorned with the perfect views of the snow-clad mountains, unique combination of rich cultural heritages and adventure amidst vantage points with incomparable beauty and rare bio-diversity. Mt. Manaslu standing at 8156m is the highest peak in the area which is also the eighth highest peak in the world. The Manaslu region is famous for its high altitude glacier lakes, fascinating flora and fauna, cultural diversity and richness which make it one of the favorite destinations for trekkers around the world. The standard circuit trek begins at Arughat and ends at Besishar and requires a trekking permit to travel all the way through the Manaslu area.
