, is considered the best trek of Nepal by many expert trekkers these days. Mt. Manaslu, at an altitude of 8163m, is the eighth highest peak in the world. This trekking around Manaslu
lets you marvel at the magnificent views of Mt. Manaslu
. It is undoubtedly one of the best treks to explore untouched natural splendor and unexploited culture of local people. Although it is considered as a great alternative trek to Annapurna circuit, it has the advantage of being less crowded nature compared to popular Annapurna circuit. The trekking trail is through amazing landscapes, traditional bridges, foothills and local villages. The highest point of the trek is the top of Larkya La Pass (5,215m), a dramatic pass crossing the Himalayas. It was a camping trek when it was opened in the early 90’s but it is a tea house trek now with the establishment of tea houses on different parts of the trail. Camping is required only if we go off the beaten track.
