Manaslu Himalaya and the trek located around Nepal Mid-West in the district of Gorkha, and then completing the walk at Manang district.
For several reason, the upper Manaslu valley located close on route to the border of Tibet / China. Which is the first reason, the other is to limit flow of trekkers to keep the country as pristine as it were in the past years.
Yes, most large villages from Jagat onward have hydro power as well private managed by village community or semi-government and private companies. Some remote villages and settlement like Samdo, Dharmasala and Bhimthang other side of the pass. Electricity run by solar power, where all trekkers can charge their electronic gadgets paying a small fee for each items per hour.
Not allowed to trek on this Manaslu Circuit or any other restricted region, where one needs to join with reputed local trekking agents. Where minimum 2-3 person required to run this trek, the trek will be accompanied and led by expert and recommended, authorized from Government Tourism Department.
