Manaslu Round TrekkingManaslu round trekking
21-day trip Itinerary

This is one of the finest treks in Nepal. It brings you to the northern border of Nepal with Tibet. Frequent views of Himalayan Peaks, Manaslu and others. You'll cross the Larkya-La pass before dropping into the Marshyangdi valley. The region is also considered to be one of the most remote places with its hidden tranquility and mid- hill mixed cultural heritage. The ethnic groups, which inhabited along this off the beaten track area, are mostly Gurung and Magar. The conservation policy is different from other regions because trekkers require a special permit for Malaslu. The pristine mountain views, undisturbed wildlife, varieties of vegetation, and unique culture provides an adventure with unique encounters.
