Manaslu Trekking

Manaslu Trekking

Manaslu region lies in north-western part of Gorkha district, bordered by Tibet (China). The region is named after Mt. Manaslu (8163 m), the 8th highest peak in the world and rewarded with pristine mountain views, rich culture of the mountain people and full of genuine adventure such as trekking and mountaineering. The name Manaslu means 'The Spirit of Mountain' in the local dialect, referring to the kind and strong deity, which dwells within the region.

The Manaslu conservation area covering 642 square miles (1663 square kilometers) begins at the elevation of 600 meters scaling up to 8,163 meters. This Conservation area has six climatic zones- Tropical, Subtropical, Temperate, Subalpine, Alpine and Arctic and has been home to 33 species of Mammals including snow leopard, musk deer and Himalayan Tahr. There are over 110 species of birds and three species of reptiles and over 1500-2000 species of flowering plants.

Manaslu region has remained restricted for centuries and only in 1991 it was officially opened for trekking. However, Japanese mountaineering team have long had access to the region for Manaslu expedition. In the year 1950 a team led by H. W. Tilman trekked from Thonje to Bimthang, and Colonel Jimmy Roberts crossed the Larkya La Pass to climb Mt. Manaslu.

Arughat, a small rural market town in Gorkha is the starting point for trekking and mountaineering. Manaslu trek is becoming much more popular as an alternative to Annapurna Circuit trek. The reason is that road construction is under way in the Annapurna region but Manaslu region is still undeveloped and full of wilderness. Trekkers can enjoy exploring the local culture, lifestyle of the mountain people and crossing mountain passes while on trek. Come and explore the secret of the virgin area with Nepal Hiking Adventure! Please note that only those travelers are allowed to trek in the Manaslu region who book their trip from government registered trekking companies and accompanied with registered guides and porters.
