Manaslu circuit trek is one of the most astonishing trek. A diversified ethnic community are living in the region which makes it an attractive region for visitors. Only after 1991, the foreign visitors are able to visit the region.

Manaslu Circuit Trek among the best treks in Nepal. Although it is gaining more popularity and more people are interested to visit it, the Manaslu Trek is still considered off-the-beaten-path and remote compared to other famous teahouse treks in Nepal. The trek takes you around Mt. Manaslu which is the eighth highest mountain at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft) in world.

Manaslu Circuit trail is a perfect combination of rich cultural heritage and unsurpassed Himalayan beauty with distinct biological diversity. It starts from the Budi Gandaki River and goes up to Larke-La. Larke La is a wide mountain pass (5213m) connecting Budi Gandaki valley with Marshyangdi Valley. During the trek, the panoramic  mountain views and superb glimpse of  attractive mountains like Himalchuli, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu will make your journey memorable.

Alike other trekking destinations, you can do the trek from two different routes. The first route passes via Dudh Pokhari pass and another through the usual route by crossing the  Larke La.
