Manaslu Circuit Trek is a strenuous trek in the Manaslu region of Nepal. The route was opened in 1991 AD as a restricted area trekking that requires a special trek permit and its recognition got a higher degree of significance since 2010 after tea houses were built. It made the trip comfortable and exciting. Walking through the ethnic settlements, raging rivers, crossing shaky bridges, you eventually cross the technical Larke pass (5160m).

The wonderful combination of nature and cultural vistas enticed trekkers from different parts of the world. Manaslu trek begins from the sub-tropical part that is dominated by the lush forests. It is all the way following the Budi Gandaki River that leads to the high pastures and fantastic light at the base of the Himalayas. Manaslu Conservation Area includes six different climatic parts. Mt. Manaslu (8156m) and its surrounding vistas can be explored from the Larke Pass (5160m), which is the highest point of this trekking. Higher than 5000 metres, the landscape mostly remains snowy. The Tibebetan Buddhist culture, traditional values and architectures flourish in these parts. Jagat, Namrung, Sama Gaon and Samdo are some of the culturally loaded villages, inhabited by the ethnic Gurung people. Culture and rituals are similar to that of the Tibetan highlands. Crossing the Larke pass, you join to the Annapurna circuit trail and trek down gradually.
