Manaslu Circuit Trek route winds through terraced fields and rice paddies to beautiful villages and lush rhododendron forests. You share the trails with yak caravans and follow the ancient trade route. As the elevation rises, the trekking route gets barren and rocky. You meet with locals while trekking and get to see their remote lifestyle. The locals of the Manaslu region have similar culture and practices to Tibetans.
The acclimatization day at Sama Gaun (3,530 m) lets you hike to the Pungyen Gompa (3,980 m) and Manaslu Base Camp (4,800 m). Likewise, you cross the challenging and high Larkey La pass and join the lower part of the Annapurna Circuit. You will be trekking in the Manaslu Conservation Area, so get ready to come across a range of flora and fauna.
Manaslu Circuit or Annapurna Circuit?
We frequently get this question, which trek is better: Manaslu Circuit or Annapurna Circuit, from our guests. Both of these treks are mind-blowing and offer a once-in-a-lifetime journey. The one major difference between Annapurna and Manaslu circuit trek is the Manaslu region is a restricted area while the Annapurna region is not.
Apart from that one factor, both treks are rewarding and have challenges. One crosses the Thorong La pass and the other the Larkya La pass. The mountain views and interaction with locals are memorable. Explore the holy pilgrimage sites and picturesque villages.
