Manaslu Circuit Trek

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of Nepal’s most popular treks. It brings you around the Manaslu Conservation Area and to a stunning vista of the world’s eighth tallest mountain.

Moreover, this trip can be an excellent alternative if you’ve already completed the Annapurna Circuit. Furthermore, it’s a 18-day journey that begins in Soti Khola and ends in Beshi Sahar, and it can be extended to 22 days by adding a side trip to the Tsum Valley.

It is one of the most graceful of the 8000-meter giants, flanked on the west by the Annapurnas and on the east by the Ganesh Himal.

Unlike the Everest Base Camp Trek, which attracts trekkers from all over the world, the Manaslu circuit trek is usually less crowded. It’s isolated and physically hard, but it’s also culturally enriching and scenically inspiring.

Most importantly, the circuit takes you from the sweltering lowlands with their rice and millet terraces to the majestic Budi Gandaki gorges with their turquoise streams and stunning waterfalls. The Manaslu trek’s suspension bridges are unparalleled in length and height, and the yearly monsoon frequently washes out minor bridges, forcing trekkers to rely on semi-submerged rocks.
