Manaslu Trekking | Trekking to Manaslu

Manaslu Trek is not easy so you need to have a good level of fitness to really enjoy it. It was officially opened to tourists in 1991, however mountaineering expeditions have spent many years in the region especially the Japanese who led many expeditions to the region in the past. Manaslu is situated in west-central Nepal, the region is extremely beautiful and very remote. It lies along the border of Tibet and it is designated as a controlled trekking route due to the sensitivity of its position on the Tibetan (Chinese) border. Only organized trekking groups booked through a tour agent are allowed to visit, and all supplies necessary for the trip (including food and kerosene) must be carried in and all rubbish must be cleared up and portered out.The trek is around 180 kms in total with fantastic mountain scenery. Manaslu trek starts at around 375 m, the highest point being 5300 m. Ecosystems and ethnic cultures within the area are very different than a lot of other treks in Nepal, and you are physically closer to Tibet than any other trekking in Nepal.

The route completes a circuit around Manaslu and into the northern Himalayas, the aim is to completely encircle the great Manaslu-Himalchuli-Baudha massif. Manaslu trek is not only geographically spectacular but also culturally fascinating. The inhabitants of the upper Budi Gandaki, a region known as Nupri ('the western mountains'), are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress and customs are almost exclusively Tibetan and they still do a lot of trade with their Tibetan cousins across the border. The mountain views in Nupri are sensational and crossing the Larkya La (pass) is not only exciting , it is also is one of the most dramatic of any mountain passes in the Nepal Himalayas.

The beautiful view of the mountains from Manaslu is the major form of attraction of the Manaslu Trekking,this  trekking provides spectacular beauty along the border of Nepal and Tibet. The name Manasalu means the Spirit-Mountain in the local dialect, referring to the benevolent and strong deity, which dwells within and Trekking in Manasalu Himalaya region is one of the delightful adventure tours in Nepal.

Taking you through the magical turns and twists of the Himalayan Range, this trek is considered as an ideal experience to witness and enjoy the mesmeric views of the Manaslu Peak.During the winter the fascinating mountain manaslu ranges clad itself with thick blankets of snow.So,winter is the season for the adventure junkies to find the solitude.The journey through this region along with the legendary mountains and valley is enjoyable no doubt, but also a tough one.
