Manaslu Circuit Trek is among the best treks in Nepal. Despite its recent rise in popularity, the Manaslu Circuit remains remote and off-the-beaten-path compared to the better-known teahouse Trekking in Nepal, which takes you throughout Manaslu, the world’s eighth highest mountain at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft).

Manaslu Trek is a beautiful 14 days journey that leads you to breathtaking views and many more, starting at Soti Khola. The Manaslu Route Nepal is unique trekking. Ten peaks of more than 6,500 meters (21,300 ft) in height are visible while trekking through the Manaslu Trekking region, including elevations of more than 7,000 meters (23,000 ft) high. Many fewer people on the Manaslu Circuit, which sets the trek apart from any other busier trekking site.

The Larke Pass is the major Part of this Manaslu Circuit Trek Itinerary. This part is a little difficult because you are crossing the High Pass (5,160m). Along the way, at the top of the Larke pass, you’ll be captivated by breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks, including Manaslu, Himlung Himal, and Annapurna II.

Manaslu Circuit Trekking area is populated by two ethnic groups; Nubri and Tsum. Chhikur’s branching off the river separates these two racial territories. While Nubri was frequently visited following Nepal’s 1950 tourism opening, Tsum Valley retains much of its traditional culture, art, and tradition. Gurungs are the largest ethnic group in the central hills of the region. This trek will charm you with every bit of thing you ask for, which can be a natural beauty, impressive waterfalls, cultural and historical values, magnificent adventures, and many more.

Does your company provide any trekking gear?

You will bring what you need (sunscreen, water, heat, a light jacket, and a camera), but the majority of your belongings, such as extra clothing and nighttime supplies, will be transported. Porters have been coming for long walks because you will be pretty helpful with other stuff. You can rent a guide only if you have a little time on foot (2-3 days), but it is a great way to help local economies and reasonably inexpensive to use a porter.
