Tour description provided by Viator

Manaslu circuit trek is best described as an off beat, non-commercial, unspoiled trekking circuit  located in the remote western region of Nepal.The trek revolves around the Manaslu Mountain (8163m) which means “Spirit Mountain.” Like its name, the trek provides an opportunity to trekkers for a spiritual awakening by witnessing cultural heritage, unrivaled beauty, and extreme wilderness.Unlike its sister treks Annapurna and Everest, the Manaslu Circuit trek is less crowded which makes the visit more appealing. The trail traverses through the roaring turquoise Budi Gandaki River, from Arughat to the apex point of the trek Larkya Pass. On ascending , the landscape quickly transforms from the green countryside and lush green forests to unusual rocky terrains and crystalline glaciers. The trek provides a glimpse into the Tibetan influenced culture, terrific sceneries of ice peaks like Manaslu, Himchuli, Himlung and Larke peak.
