Manasalu Circuit trek is Open after earthquake and trying to recovery same like before.Manaslu region is popular for it’s unique fascinating culture, biological diversity, spanning altitudes from 550m to 5500m during the trip. Before 2010 trekker have to do camping trek but now mostly people can trek in tea house trek which is more comfortable and easy to sleep. Mostly people are Buddhist and follow their old culture and religion belong to Tibetan language in dialect.

We start our Manaslu trek from Arughat after the drive from Kathmandu. Trekking along the Budhi Gandaki river, the trail meanders, scrambles and climbs it’s way along the confines of the valley. Much of the round Manaslu trekking is in the region known as Nupri, an area of strong Tibetan influence with the trade route between the regions. As we trek higher the Hindu culture is being replaces by Buddhist features of Mani walls, Khanyi gates and Chortens and stupas as does the topography changes. This Manaslu circuit trekking region is a natural habitat for many elusive wild animals including the snow leopard, grey wolf, musk deer, Himalayan Thar and blue sheep, Keep your eyes open!! Trekking routes at lower Manaslu section is already rebuild which is being effected by the April 2015 earthquake and we have been running trips as per the regular Manaslu trek itinerary since spring 2016.

Another name for this trek is called Larke pass(5250m), Larke la pass is the highest trek  point in the Manaslu trek. This is a classic and tough ancient salt trading route that links the Buri Gandanti with Marsyandri valley literally Manaslu to Annapuran region. The view from the Larkya pass is simply Superb with Chuli, Himlung, Cheo himal, Larke peak, Annapurna II Lamjung Himal and Mt. Manaslu. Further we descent through the beautiful alpine valleys at Bhinthang and Jagat to join the classic Annapurna route map before driving back to Kathmandu to end the exhilarating journey of Manaslu circuit trek in the vastness of the Himalayas.
