Trip Information

This region of Nepal sees few trekkers, which makes a visit here more exclusive and unspoiled. Manaslu, open for trekking since 1991, provides spectacular beauty along the border of Nepal and Tibet and is now a controlled trekking route, allowing organized trekking groups special permits to gain entry into this region to venture round its spectacular circuit.

Manaslu has a unique environment, which is exceptionally rich in biodiversity that has made this region one of the finest tourist destinations of Nepal for many years. The majestic Himalayan ranges in this area consist of cultural diversities and natural scenery with high altitude romantic glacier lakes and fascinating flora and fauna, all features of this region, have made it one of the most attractive places of Nepal.
