Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of the best off-the-beaten-path treks in Nepal that takes you around the world’s eighth highest peak, Mt. Manaslu (8163m).
This 18 day Manaslu Circuit Trek takes you from the cool and peaceful valleys and lowlands to the high and chilly passes around Manaslu. This scenic and culturally rich trail offers breathtaking views of Manaslu, Annapurna, Gangapurna, Himal Chuli, Ganesh Himal, Himlung, Kang Guru and many other peaks. You will begin the trek by following the Budhi Gandaki River, and pass through cultivated fields, subtropical forests and deep gorges to climb up to the Larke La Pass (5167m), the highest point on the trek. On the way, you will have a chance of encountering some of the Himalayan wildlife including Tahr (Mountain Goat), Agali (Blue Sheep), Pika (Highest living Mammal), Himalayan Marmots and even the elusive Snow Leopard.
