Mt. Manaslu (8156m ) is the eighth highest mountain in the world and one of the fourteen 8,000metres plus peaks. It dominates the Manaslu range bordering the Ganesh Himal range on the East and Annapurna to the West. Since the border with Tibet is a strategic location, the area is considered a restricted trekking destination; treks must be fully organized through a reputed trekking agency. Similar to other restricted trekking places, the permit is issued and regulated by the Immigration Department of Nepal. The area is relatively untouched by tourism, however, the number of visitors to the region is increasing dramatically. The Manaslu circuit trek starts from a small village near the historic Gorkha (Gurkha) Kingdom, now a district of Nepal. We pass through lush hills and canyons, dotted with enchanting villages, on our way to Larkya La (5135m), one of the beautiful passes of the Himalaya. We drop down from Larkya La to Marshyangdi Valley, part of the Annapurna circuit, and to the road which leads us back to Kathmandu. As Annapurna circuit has been impacted by road construction, Manaslu circuit is fast becoming a popular alternative trekking region in the Himalaya.
