Round Manaslu Trek or Manaslu Circuit Trek refers to the same title that you make a complete round the world’s eight highest Mountain Manaslu (8163 m) after crossing Larkya Pass. Trekking to Manaslu in Gorkha is wild and remote, yet there are teahouses available every day. No need to bring tents and food for this trek.
We begin our journey at Arughat Bazaar and follow the meandering Budhi Gandaki River northwards to the village of Deng. As we walk further northwards the valley opens up to reveal the delightful alpine meadows and small Tibetan-style villages which cluster beneath Manaslu's sweeping North Face. We pass through Jagat, Ghap, Pu and Sho all typical Tibetan villages with rows of small revolving prayer wheels used by Tibetan Buddhists and a wall of mani stones positioned in the middle of the trekking trail.. It brings a good luck when we spin the prayer wheels being stood on the right side. Our trekking guide will interpret the things along the trail.
After we reach Samagaon, the largest and most important village in the region, we head west and cross the Larke Pass (5135 m), a classic and tough route linking the Budhi Gandaki with the Marshyangdi valley. From Samagaon and Larke Pass the views of the base camp of the Mount Manaslu looks fantastic. Our porters will carry your bag pack and you just enjoy taking photos or chatting with locals along the trails.
Our descent passes through the beautiful alpine meadows at Bhimtang before we join the main Annapurna Circuit route which takes us out to the trailhead at Syange. From Syange we drive back to Kathmandu via Beshisahar.
