“The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.”

Manaslu trek, also known as Around Manaslu Trek, 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.

Annapurna Circuit Trek takes you to the region of extremities and provides you with enough thrills and adventure during the entire journey in the rain shadow areas of Annapurna region. From climbing across the widest pass in the world to trekking past the deepest river gorge in the world, trekkers can experience many diversities and contrasts during Thorong La Pass Trek. Lushness of landscape and its arid nature, face to face view of lofty Himalayas, influence of Hinduism at lower altitude and Buddhism at higher altitudes, diverse vegetation, flora and fauna and the side trip to one of the world’s serene and highest lake; Annapurna Circuit trek tests your patience and rewards you with the bests of challenge, diversity and beauty.

Thorong La Pass Trek, the adventure of the lifetime, begins from Beshisahar, the district headquarters of Lamjung district in western Nepal. The adventure continues along the company of mighty Marsyangdi River and passes through Gurung settlements and continues along to the region dominated and inhabited by locals following Tibetan Buddhism. Greenery and lushness of hills, terraced fields, several suspension bridges, waterfalls and very popular settlements of Bahundanda, Syange, Jagat and Sattale are main highlights of your trek before you enter into Manang from Tal village. Ahead we trek past Mani walls and Chhortens, prayer flags and prayer wheels, settlements of Koto, Chame, Hongde and others, and arid landscape to reach the mystic Manang village. Take a side trip to the gorgeous Tilicho Lake and head on towards the formidable Thorongla Pass (5,416m). After a challenging uphill climb to the summit of the pass enjoy the marvellous scenery, panoramic view of the Himalayas and vast landscape. Trek down to the holy Muktinath Temple, considered sacred by Hindu and Buddhists alike, and then to Jomsom before returning back to Pokhara and then to Kathmandu to wrap up the Thorong La Pass Trek.

Opened to foreign trekkers in 1977, Thorong La Pass Trek (a part of Annapurna Circuit) has been drawing the attention of adventurers from around the world.
