Manaslu Region Trek

The majestic Mount Manaslu stands as the eighth-highest peak in the world, reaching a towering height of 8163 meters (26,781 feet). This awe-inspiring mountain is nestled within the Mansari Himal, a part of the Nepalese Himalayas, situated in the west-central Gandaki province, Gorkha district, Nepal. On May 9, 1956, a momentous achievement was made when Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu, members of a Japanese expedition, successfully conquered the summit of Mount Manaslu.

Manaslu is the tallest peak in the Gorkha District, located about 64 km (40 mi) east of Annapurna. With its long ridges and valley glaciers, Manaslu can be approached from all directions, leading to a peak that rises steeply above the surrounding landscape. This makes it a prominent feature when seen from a distance.

The Manaslu region offers a variety of trekking options. One popular choice is the Manaslu Circuit trekking route, which covers 177 kilometers (110 mi) around the Manaslu massif and passes over the pass down to Annapurna. This trek was opened for trekkers in 1991. The trail follows an ancient salt-trading route along the Budhi Gandaki River, offering trekkers the chance to enjoy snow-capped peaks and experience the wonderful traditional lifestyle of the local people. The highest point reached along the trek route is Larkya La Pass at an elevation of 5,106 meters (16,752 ft).

Tsum Valley Trek is one of the pristine trekking destinations in the Manaslu region of Nepal. Tsum Valley is connected with Tibet in the north of the Gorkha district. The pure traditional local villages, their unchanged culture, and lifestyle provide the perfect way to experience the Tsum Valley region. Some of the hidden villages en route to the Tsum Valley Trekking route in the Manaslu region of Nepal include Ripchet, Chumling, Chhokangparo, Rachen Gompa, Nile, Chhule, Mu Gumpa, and Gumba Lungdang, each offering unique and traditional cultural experiences.
