Manaslu Circuit Trekking or Around Manaslu Circuit Trek is new compared to the Everest Base Camp Trekking. It takes place in the Manaslu Region. This region may not be popular like the Everest Region, where the world’s famous trek takes place that millions of trekkers like. But it is as beautiful as the Everest Region, so it is gradually becoming popular in the eyes of the trekkers. The popularity of the Manaslu Region is also based on the world’s eighth highest mountain, while the Everest Region is popular because of the world’s highest mountain, and the difference between their heights is 600 m. Not so much, Manaslu Circuit Trekking deserves to be respected, booked, and loved equally like the Everest Base Camp Trek because its mountain that has been listed is one of the famous and highest mountains.
The trekking trail of the Manaslu Circuit Trek takes you to a unique region, where you see aged – old local heritages and rich biological diversity in its original form, unchanged with the passage of time. It ascends above 3000 m and gives you the experience of trekking in the Himalayan Region, which comes under the definition of trekking, and which is much valued by the trekkers all around the world. It also ascends to take you to the Larkya La Pass, one of the highest passes, which shows breathtaking, stunning, and mind-blowing views of mountains. As you see this view from the pass, you find a reason why you should do the Manaslu Circuit Trekking.
Another reason is remoteness, where you will be walking as a solitary trekker in the midst of unbelievable and beautiful nature. This not only includes the views of mountains, such as the Manaslu and the Ganesh Himal, but also the landscapes that your trekking trail passes through, such as glaciers, countryside, high altitude, meadows, and green forest, in addition to the views of the Budhi Gandaki River and Marshyangdi Valley.
Unlike the Everest Base Camp Trekking, Manaslu Trek can be either a camping trek or a tea – house trek. While doing the Manaslu Circuit Trekking, you might prefer tea house trekking to camping trek when you spend your nights in the lodges that have basic facilities or when you eat your meal. Do not get disappointed with this as you are trekking in the remote area, where the fun and challenge of the real trekking begins.
