MANASLU TREK

MANASLU TREKKING

TRIP OVERVIEW

Manaslu Trekking following the remote trails around the Manaslu massif has only been opened and is less frequented trekking. This trekking has always been the domain of the mountaineering expeditions. Manaslu (8156 m.) was attempted by Japanese expeditions every year from 1952-1956 when the first ascent was made. Manaslu came is known as Japanese Mountain.

Manaslu trekking is another interesting and challenging trekking in Nepal. The peaks of the Ganesh Himal looms high to the Budhi Gandaki. We enter wild gorgeous country side that cuts between Ganesh (7429 m.) and Himalchuli (7893 m.), where villages are linked by precipitous trails that make few concessions to the knees! When Ascending, we gain our first views of Manaslu (8156 m.) while the stone shrines and the monasteries reflect the region’s ancient Buddhist heritage.

The approach to the Larkya La (5153 m.) is demanding, but from the pass we are rewarded with unsurpassed views of the summit ridges of Mt. Manaslu and Himlung Himal. From here it is a steep descent to the Marsyandi valley and the well defined trails around Annapurna that finally lead back to the road head to Pokhara or Kathmandu.
