The Manaslu Region

Manaslu has only been open for trekkers since recently, and since it was one of the most severely affected regions by the earthquake it only has basic facilities. However after the earthquake destroyed some walking trails better ones have since been constructed. The area is protected as part of the Manaslu Conversation Area. The region can be accessed via jeep or heli.

In Manaslu you’ll find the eighth highest mountain in the world, magnificent Mount Manaslu (8,156m/26,759ft), meaning ‘Mountain of Spirits’. You’ll observe the beautiful Himalayan culture and Buddhist religion, as you pass monasteries and tiny villages decorated with colourful Tibetan prayer flags. The highest point, the snow covered wonderland of the Larkya La (Larke La) Pass (5,215m/17,110ft) will challenge even the most seasoned trekker. But the superb panoramic mountain views will be worth it!
