Manaslu Trek is possibly the most charming restricted trekking region of Nepal. Completely genuine and remote territories of hilly community and Tibetan origin people come across, after the narrow gorge of Budi Gandaki River that offers the anthropological experience during trekking. The trek remains hill to Himalayan and then to hill walking holiday within the remote areas of three districts of Nepal; namely Dhading, Gorkha, and Lamjung. You have a chance to cross the iconic pass Larke la Pass on the foothill of Mt. Manaslu, Ganesh Himal Base Camp, and some part of the Annapurna Circuit route; which are the major highlights of this off-the-beaten trail journey.
The journey of Manaslu Trekking begins with the bus journey to Lapubeshi via Aarughat via the postal road of Dhading district which has been recently opened. Walking starts from Lapubeshi. Most of our journey follows the glacial river of Budi Gandaki so we cross several bridges. Moving forward on the trails, you see the river narrows into the narrow gorge where you will find a completely different landscape and community. You find yourselves a completely Tibetan-like community due to the Mani Walls and Chortens. Once you cross the Larke La Pass you will be overwhelmed by views of Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Himlung, and Mt. Ganesh Himal. When we descend, we meet the Annapurna Circuit Trail at Dharapani. If you are interested to do Thorong La Pass then that can be arranged too. Otherwise, we drive back to Besisahar and respectively to Kathmandu. In summary, the trek to Manaslu is an authentic destination that may be your first experience.
