Manaslu is the eight highest mountain in the world which only opened in 1992 as a restricted area for trekkers and many would argue that the Manaslu Circuit is one of the best trekking routes in Nepal.
This area has the stunning Himalayan mountain Vistas and dramatic valleys. The area has the true Gurung and Tibetan influence of cultures. This is a trek of great waterfalls, Glaciers, Tibetan spiritual Buddhist Monasteries, Lakes, mountains of the Annapurna  range  while being very close to the Tibetan Plateau.
We start our trip in Kathmandu (the capital of Nepal), taking in a day sightseeing to some of the historical sites in this bustling & colourful city, finishing the day with a traditional dinner and local dancing. We drive to the start of the trek at Soti Khola and end the trek on part of the Annapurna Circuit trek before transferring to Pokhara to chill out before flying back to Kathmandu.
There are Rhododendrons in Spring and clear mountains in Autumn which gives the  best times to trek the Manaslu Circuit between March to May and September – November.
