Manaslu Circuit Trek- 17 Days starts after an adventurous drive to the small village of Sothi Khola.

As we ascend further, we come across villages with strong Tibetan influence nested in high alpine landscape. Exploring ancient monasteries while observing a unique culture and way of life the locals live here is just special. We will make a day trip from Samagaon to Manaslu Base Camp (4800m) to enjoy the majestic panorama as well as to acclimitize. Before heading to the thrilling Larkya La Pass (5160m), we will also make a day trip from Samdo to Rui La Pass (4998m), Nepal – Tibet border which is important trading route for the local Nubri people of Manaslu region. After the pass, we descend to the Marsyangdi Valley where we will be trekking in the Annapurna Circuit Trail. Contrast of landscape, unique culture, ancient monasteries, traditional villages, high pass, breathtaking views of Annapurna & Manaslu ranges, rare flora & fauna and off the beaten path trekking experience are some of the many highlights of Manaslu Circuit Trek.
