Manaslu Circuit Trek

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productThe Manaslu Circuit trek is a blend of natural and cultural richness. The trail takes you through the spectacular Manaslu region and the people that call it home.It is a challenging yet worthy of all the hard work. The total journey around the Manaslu takes 15 days and involves the crossing of the great Larkya La pass.Those that have explored the region say that trekking around Manaslu reminds them of the Annapurna Circuit, but the region nevertheless is much more distinctive and less explored. This trail takes visitors through spectacular natural landscapes and culturally rich local people.Many highlights of the trek are that it is less crowded, you can reach it overland, crossing of several suspension bridges as you follow the path of the Buri Gandaki, different climatic conditions, trail filled with colorful prayer flags and other Buddhist religious symbols, ethnic villages, and of course great views from several viewpoints especially the Larkya La pass. The pass is physically demanding and takes a whole day to cross it. Nevertheless, it is still manageable for those who are in good physical shape but may not have previous mountaineering experience. From Larkya La you can see great vistas of Cheo Himal, Himal Chuli, Himlung Himal, and of course Manaslu.The trek is an organized camping trek due to lack of the lodge facilities in the area. But spending the nights in a tent is not that bad it only enhances the Himalayan experience with an opportunity to witness the magnificence of the Himalayas up close. This is a brilliant trek with a chance to learn more about the lifestyles of people in the region and also to explore the natural riches of the region.Pass By: Manaslu, Gorkha, Gandaki Zone, Western Region

It would take about 4 hour to reach the gompa and another 6 hour to Samagaon. The gompa is hidden behind the ridge in front of Manaslu. It is also known as Honsansho Gompa for Japanese. This monastery was destroyed by an avalanche in the winter of 1993, during first Japanese expedition to Mt. Manaslu, Killing 18 inhabitants, mostly nuns.
