Manaslu Round Trek

Manaslu region, the home of ethnically Tibetan inhabitants who still maintain strong links with Tibet, and the fascinating and magical region offering perfect blend of rich culture heritage, unsurpassed Himalayan beauty, and a rich mountain biological diversity perfect combination of rich culture heritage, matchless Himalayan scenery and a variety of  rich mountain natural heritage. Trekking to Manaslu Round is a great trip not to be missed, an absolute highlight. The living Buddhist culture is virtually untouched because of their isolated locality and wildlife abounds.

The journey starts from Arughat of Gorkha, a main trade center of the local. From lush rice paddies with water buffalo and thatched huts, we trek north along the incredible, mountain-capped high route, through sprawling Gurung villages perched on high, terraced hilltops covered in Rhododendron, to reach Kutang, or lower Nubri. Here the ethnically Tibetan inhabitants speak their own dialect, partly Tibetan and partly Gurung, and live a lifestyle that spans Nepal and Tibet.

Trekking ever higher to upper Nubri, purely Tibetan; we share the trails with yak caravans. Here, trade with Tibet continues as it has for centuries and Tibetan villages have been forged from the wilderness by Tibetan refugees. Sublime mountain panoramas, dominated by Manaslu itself, are a highlight of the trek as are side-trips to Pun Gyen Gompa, Manaslu Base Camp, Rui La/ a traditional trade route to Tibet at the Nepal-Tibet boarder, the valley above Samdo near the border of Tibet and the epic crossing the snow-covered Larke Pass to Bimtang and Manang region of the Annapurna circuit.
