The Manaslu Circuit Trek is a challenging and remote trekking route in Nepal, offering a less crowded alternative to the more popular Annapurna and Everest regions.

Located in the Gorkha district, the trek encircles Mount Manaslu, the eighth highest peak in the world. Known for its pristine landscapes, diverse ecosystems, and rich cultural experiences, the Manaslu Circuit takes you through remote villages, lush forests, and high mountain passes.

One of the distinctive features of the trek is its off-the-beaten-path nature, providing a sense of isolation and tranquility. Due to its restricted area status, trekkers are required to obtain a special permit, contributing to the preservation of the local culture and environment.

The trail allows for a unique opportunity to interact with the indigenous communities, including the Nubri and Tsum Valley people, who have retained their traditional lifestyle.

While the trek demands physical fitness and acclimatization to high altitudes, the reward is an immersive journey through a less explored region, characterized by breathtaking scenery and cultural authenticity.
