Our local expert guide and porters will keep informing about the local culture and customes.

Manaslu Trekking was travel with the first expedition team of Colonel and Robert in 1950. Manaslu Round Trekking officially opened in 1991 AD. Due to the less numbers of guest house unexplored trekking trails people did not plan any treks. Nowadays the basic tea house are built up, where people can stay safely. The upper part of Manaslu Trekking is more like Tibet. The Culture, Costumes and Tradition of the local people are the same like Tibetans. Most of the people believe in Buddhism and every house is decor by the prayer flag. Along the way Mt. Manaslu range, Shringi Himal, Himlung Himalaya are seen all the time. Beside that the Mani wall, fluttering prayer flag, water fall, an isolated landscape and chirping birds makes this trek more interesting. Of course the Larke pass will be tough for everyone but it is worthy.

Manaslu Circuit trekking ends at Annapurna region at Dharapani. The trekking trails meet the Annapurna round trek path. Keep descend to Syangi and take a bus to Beshisahar/Kathmandu.
