Manaslu trek is regarded as a challenging outdoor trail full of absolute wilderness. A trekking experience in Manaslu region is unlike any other.  So be ready to travel along some of the toughest trails in the Himalayan region.

The highest trophy of this magical trek is the spectacular glimpse of Mt. Manaslu (8,156m), the eighth highest mountain in the world. The crossing of Larkya La pass (5213m) will afford us breath taking views of Manaslu ranges including Samdo (Pang phuchuli), Nagdi chuli, Simnang Himal, Manaslu glacier and Manaslu ice fall among others. The unique and peculiar culture, custom and lifestyle of local people, who closely resembles their neighbor Tibetans, will offer you a brilliant occasion to learn and expand your worldly horizon.

Do not be swayed by its remote location and difficult climbing, at the end of the day, the sweat and toil you will spend in Manaslu will be amply rewarded with the mesmerizing scenery, amazing wildlife and fascinating cultures of local people.

The Manaslu Trek can be organized for different duration and season. This 18-day itinerary however has professionally packaged to offer the best attractions of Manaslu.  

Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition have been organizing trekking since 1990 and operates terkking adventures in all opened trekking regions of Nepal. Our staffs include highly experience and professional trekking guides, high-altitude climbers and assistants.
