Standing 8156m tall Mt. Manaslu is eighth highest peak of the world. The name Manaslu means “The Spirit Mountain” in the local language. The walking trail follows an ancient salt-trading route of Tibet. Previously closed this area was opened is 1991, but took several years for the word to get out.

Manaslu trek begins from Arughat. We pass through Soti khola, Machha khola village, Jagat, Deng, Namrugn, Samagaon, Samda, Larkya La pas(5160m) and descend to Bimthang, Tilije, Syange and back to Kathmandu. Larkya La Pass is the highest point of the journey which provides outstanding views of Himchuli, Manaslu, Himlung Himal, Cheo, Kangguru and Annapurna II along with Larkya Glaciers. The trekking trail takes us through narrow steep path, Budhi Gandaki valley, tropical waterfalls, few rice terraces, suspension bridges, thick forests of rhododendron and Himalayan blue pine, glaciers and many more. Samdo village is the highest village in the Budhi Gandaki valley inhabited by Bhotias, offers spectacular view of the valley and Pang Phuchi village with a backdrop of Tibetan border. We also come across some Gurung villages in the beginning. We can occasionally see wild animals and birds as Manaslu region is blessed with 110 species of bird’s including Golden Eagel, Eurasian Griffon, Kalij, Lophophorus(national bird of Nepal) and many others.
