Manaslu Circuit Trek




2009 Birendra Kund - Lake near Samagaun village
 

Manaslu Trek, Experience the authentic cultural and natural heritage!
     Manaslu Region is just opened in early 90s to the foreign visitors and it has been restricted area to conserve its fragile natural resources and cultural heritage and to promote ecotourism to improve livelihood of the local people in the MCA region. Manaslu region is an isolated and long been undamaged by modernity. Trekking tour in this isolated area has been extremely popular from last few years. Those trekking enthusiastic searching for ‘wilderness and authentic village’ experiences have started to bypass the ‘Annapurna’ and hike the Manaslu route instead. 
The MCAP is a protected area in Nepal, established in 1998 covering 1663 km2 (642 sq mi) in the Mansiri Himalayan range of the Himalayas in the Gorkha District. It is a classic setting to experience spotless Himalayan nature and culture. The conservation area starts at 600m and is covered by the eighth highest peak in the world Mount. Manaslu at 8,613 m. MCAP in NTB provides more information about the region.
The region offers a variety of trekking options. The popular Manaslu Trekking Route of 177 kilometers (110 mi), skirts the Manaslu massif over the pass down to Annapurna. The trekking trail follows an ancient salt-trading route along the Budhi Gandaki River. En route, 10 peaks over 6,500 meters (21,300 ft) are visible, including a few over 7,000 meters (23,000 ft). The highest point reached along the trek route is the Larke Pass at an elevation of 5100 meters (17,175 ft). As of May 2008, the mountain has been climbed 297 times with 53 fatalities. 
Main highlights of the region are; striking landscapes, the incredible view of Himalayan panorama, mighty mountains like Mt. Manaslu, Ganesh Himal Range, Sringi Himala, Naike Peak, Larky Peak, Cheo Himal, Ratna Chuli, Kangaroo Himal, ocean of Rhododendron, blue pine,  and bamboo forests crowded with verities of wild life, beautiful cascading of waterfalls, Sama Gaun in the lap of Mount Manaslu, ancient Buddhist Monasteries, countless Maani Walls (stone tablets engraved with mantras), chorten or stupas and Kaanis along the path ( rotund religious structures in Tibetan Buddhism often housing relics and surrounded by prayer mills.) attracts you with hiking and exploring enthusiasm. These religious places always should be walked to the left or clock-wise to show the respect to the sacredness of these ancient structures and the people who tend them. Similarly, if you feel moved to spin prayer wheels or enter a temple also move the wheels or our body in clock-wise direction. Before entering a temple take off your shoes and leave it at door side as a mark of respect.
