The Route of Manaslu Trek
Starting from the border of the Gorkha and Dhading districts of Nepal, also known as Aarughat, the Manaslu Circuit Trek officially begins. Heading through traditional villages such as Jagat, Dobhan, Tilje and visiting the Larke La Base Camp in Dharmasala makes this trek even more enjoyable. During a big part of the Manaslu trekking, the Budhi Gandaki River accompanies us making the trail filled with fauna and flora. As the journey begins in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, nature is not the only thing we will encounter. During our stay in Kathmandu, we take the advantage to do some sightseeing. Home to 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites, Kathmandu is a bursting city of culture and ancient architecture.
The Manaslu trek leads you through the hilly landscapes of Nepal. Furthermore, in just 11 days of trekking, we can see the beauty of the Manaslu and the Larke Pass trek.
