Overview

16 days 15 nights
Private trip
Price from USD$1,134 NPR125,533.80 per person
A spectacular alternative to the Annapurna Circuit or Khumbu region, the dramatic landscape of the Manaslu Circuit is a trek truly off the beaten track. It starts at the town of Sotikhola, passing through bamboo forests and Gurung villages in the narrow Buri Gandaki gorge. After Lho village, we enter the Nupri region inhabited by Tibetan immigrants where you will see colorful prayer flags, mani walls, and monasteries along the way. After Samdo village, we head towards Larkya La pass. The view from the Larkya La offers a breath-taking view of Himal Chuli, Manaslu, Cheo Himal and Himlung Himal mountains.
