Round Manaslu Trek (20 Days)

Considered as one of the most challenging trek in Nepal, the Manaslu Circuit  rewards the adventurous with an unparalleled alpine experience, opened in 1992. This area offers a combination of rich cultural heritage, unsurpassed beauty and biological diversity.

We ascend the Gandaki River valley, which is fed by many rivers and waterfalls, offering the chance of a plunge into some bathing pools. The strenuous section begins from here.  Yaks begin to out number people in the rocky landscape. In Samagoan (3450m) we visit the glacial green lake of Birendra before crossing into mystic Samdo, 15km from the Tibetan border. Here Tibetan monks inhabit sacred monasteries and combined with the views of the Tibetan plateau against stark white Himalayas. This is a truly spiritual place. The biggest challenge then awaits - crossing the snow bound Larkya La pass (5213m). As we cross, we see snow-covered peaks over 6500m towers above . While descending, once off the snow takes us through alpine then tropical areas, bursting with ferns, bamboo, pine trees, waterfalls and aqua-blue green lakes laced with cotton-white beaches. Finally, Manaslu will disappear as we descend to Beshishar (832m.) This 3 weeks excursion will leave you with a sense of peace and respect for the people of Nepal and its ecological wonders.

We continue our journey along the Budhi Gandaki river, we cross the Machha Khola and head upstream to the tiny village of Khorlabeshi and the hot springs at Tatopani. The trail is quite exposed and challenging in places. After a short section of forest path we reach the single tea house at Doban. Above Doban, you can see an impressive series rapids of Budhi Gandaki. We climb short steep section, the river is much more placid, meandering across a broad gravel bed. We cross the river on a suspension bridge and another short climb to Jagat. Overnight at camp.

Day 07: Jagat to Dyang (1800m)
After descending a long series of stone steps to the river,trek climb a terraced hill to Saguleri, from where we can see the impressive Sringi Himal, 7187m. We Cross the river again at Ghata Khola, the path splits, with the right–hand branch heading off towards the Mustang. Our route continues upstream, through a gorge section with towering walls. We cross the river three more times in the next two hours to avoid difficult valley sides and then climb up over a further steep spur to reach the village of Deng, where we camp.

About 5 hrs walk. The path goes through dense jungle up the narrow western gorge of the Buri Gandaki heading towards Manaslu.

Day 10: Namrung to Lhogaon (3180m)

Leaving the village, we follow the right bank of the river, with views of Peak 29 ahead. At a fork in the trail, we take a detour to the left, which leads up to Honsansho Gompa and the Pungen Glaciers, from where there is a stunning view of Peak 29 and Manaslu. We will camp somewhere around here and explore and acclimatize for the next few days.

Everywhere you look are mountains, as spectacular as they get and Manaslu is particularly impressive. The once large Bhudi Gandaki is now merely a stream as we continue to follow its course ever upwards. After crossing to the East bank of the river, we reach the last permanent settlement in the valley which is called Sumdu. Above the village we cross the stream which runs down the Gya La (pass), the pass to Tibet, and there are the ruins of another village Larkya Bazaa, which is village thrived on trade with Tibet over the nearby Gya La, a trade which is now much diminished.
