Manaslu Region Trekking is located in the western-central part of Nepal, named after the mountain Manaslu which stands tall at 8,156m, there are many things to do in order to explore this beautiful part of the country. Stretching a land of 1,663 square kilometres (642 sq. mi) includes a lot of history with its ancient salt trading routes. The circuit area of Manaslu was open to the public fairly later and hence can still be considered as one of the more offbeat trails. The versatility in the ranges of treks available in this area cannot be denied, some of the more popular trails include Lower Manaslu Trek, Tsum Valley Trek, and Manaslu Circuit Trek.
Manaslu Region Trekking leads along the Budhi Gandaki River, the famous holy river which originates from the snowcapped Mountains. ‘Budhi’ means an old woman. Therefore, this river can be said as the Old Gandaki River. Manaslu (8163m) trekking was opened for tourists only in 1992. It is still not the regular trekking trail as it was used only for the expedition. Not being connected to the big cities, the Manaslu Region Trekking still offers natural vegetation with beautiful flora and fauna. Manaslu trekking starts from Gorkha, the home town of the former Royal family of Nepal. Before starting trekking we do sightseeing in the old Royal Palace in Gorkha, built in the fortress style with the goddess Kali temple. It is a wilderness trekking that passes through the typical Nepali villages and rural market centres like Arughat Bajar which is the old busyness centre of Gorkha district. The trail leads to the height of Larkya pass (5213m). Manaslu trekking ends at Beshisahar which is the starting point of the Annapurna Circuit. The spectacular mountain views and biocultural diversity are the delightful adventures of the Manaslu trek. On the low land, there is the inhabitation of Gurung ethnic groups, mainly associated with agricultural work. Upon arrival to the Himalayan range, tourists get to meet with the local ethnic people, strongly influenced by the Tibetan culture and tradition.
