MANASLU TREK (5500 m) 15 days

The Manaslu trekking exhibits the sensational mountain vistas, fascinating culture and

 

biological diversity, spanning altitudes from 600 to 5500 meter – one of Nepal’s last Himalayan jewels. This trek suits best to those who are looking for the challenging but less trodden trekking in Nepal, is also a part of the Great Himalayan trail. New teahouses are being built all around the Manaslu trek route nowadays, thus we are organizing this trek in teahouse mode, which used to be a fully camping few years back. This Manaslu trekking is also becoming the best alternative of the classic Annapurna circuit due to the road construction in some sections of the Annapurna region.

We start our Manaslu trek from Arughat after the drive from Kathmandu. Trekking along the Budhi Gandaki river the trail meanders, scrambles and climbs its way along the confines of the valley. Much of the round Manaslu trekking is in the region known as Nupri, an area of strong Tibetan influence with the trade route between the regions. As we trek higher the Hindu culture is being replaced by Buddhist features of Mani walls, Khanyi gates and Chortens as does the topography change. This Manaslu circuit trekking region is a natural habitat for many elusive wild animals including the snow leopard, grey wolf, must deer, Himalayan thar and blue sheep, Keep your eyes open!! Trekking routes at lower Manaslu section – being effected by the April 2015 earthquake – have been rebuilt already and we have been running trips as per the regular Manaslu trek itinerary since spring 2016, once again totally safe for trekking.

The Annapurna Circuit in Nepal is one of the world’s most classic multiday hikes. While the start and stop points and route can be variable, in general trekkers go from besisahar to Nayapul, roughly 135miles in total.

The Annapurna Circuit was once built as one of the most beautiful treks in the world.it was a must-item on many adventurers bucket lists. But things have changed over the last few years, namely road building. Ugly road building. The apple growers in the village of Marpha had bushels of apples that were rotting because they couldn’t  get them to the market across the mountainous trails. What to do? Definitely don’t ask other villagers or think about the impact on the main source of income (trekkers). Soon bulldozers moved in and turned the trail into a jeeptrack with locals and trekkers zooming up and down the valleys in a gaggle of Indian-made jeeps, a chorus of honks and an encore of dust. It’s easy to criticize, but it’s also hard to blame villagers for wanting a road to their house, a road that opens up access to food and healthcare and the ability to visit family thank you
