Manaslu trekking takes you to the unspoiled and remote Manaslu region bordering with Tibet. It is an area restricted for mass tourism, to preserve its unique cultural and natural heritage.The trekking in Manaslu region offers a diverse culture and landscape and challenging trails along Budi Gandaki valley. En route are numerous waterfalls and lakes, interesting Buddhist monasteries in Samagaon and Larke Bazzar and interesting Tibetan villages that look medieval.
Manaslu trekking is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. The Tibetans of the upper Budi Gandaki, a region known as Nupri, are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress and customs are almost exclusively Tibetan and there is still continuous trade between Nupri and Tibet. The mountain views in Nupri are sensational and the Larke pass (5,213m) is a dramatic Himalayan pass to cross.
Starting from Arughat in Gorkha we walk along the Budi Gandaki valley.The first few days are hard . Slowly we enter regions more scenic and culturally interesting. We pass through interesting and exotic Buddhist villages of Samagaon, Sirdibas and Samdo and cross the Larke pass to descend to Marshyangdi valley in Annapurna circuit route where it ends in Bensisahar.
