If you are looking for adventure in Nepal, you must try the 16days Manaslu Circuit Trek. Manaslu Circuit trek is the tea house trekking that circles the periphery of Manaslu Mountain, the highest mountain of the world. The trail takes us near to Nepal- Tibet border. Manaslu Circuit Trekking allows you with the joy of ascending the Larkya La which is the Highest Pass in Manaslu Region. You will walk through the slippery Larkya Glacier and reach the summit of Larkya La from where you will enjoy the views of Cheo, Kangguru and Annapurna II mountains. The views of raging Budhigandaki River and serrated Sringi Himal Mountain and visit to the grand Sama Gompa Monastery are the attractions of Manaslu Circuit Trek. Moreover, the trail proceeds through the dense forest area that offers chances of having wildlife view of Langur Monkey and other animals.
Manaslu Circuit Trekking takes you into the adventure of unchartered territory for which the route progresses through the controlled area which was once restricted to enter by Nepalese Government. Most of the lands are still untouched and the locals are still adopting the ancient ways of living.
