Manaslu Circuit trek (Around Manaslu Trek), begins from Kathmandu, sightseeing of the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Kathmandu to trekking in the beautiful Manaslu region. On the Trip, we get to marvel at the magnificent views of Mt. Manaslu (8163m), the eight tallest mountains in the world, together with a chance to witness the rich local heritage and biological diversity of the region. One of the popular trekking known as the highest point in this trek is the Larkya La Pass which widely believed to be one of the most dramatic passes crossing the Himalayas. The itineraries of this trek ensure adequate time for the proper acclimatization and most of the trek involves hard walking on the mountain trails. For this trek physical fitness is required still it is very important to trek at high altitude above 3000m is more demanding on the body than walking at low elevations. Manaslu region trek is believed to be in stark contrast to trekking in the Annapurna region making around Manaslu trek the first choice for those who prefer to become one with nature.
