Manaslu circuit trek (17 Days)
The Manaslu circuit trek is more remote and spectacular than many other treks and is sometimes called the best all-round trek in the Nepal. Manaslu Trek is a great tea-house trek that is certainly becoming a great alternative to the Annapurna Circuit trek. Along the way you will circumnavigates the 8th highest peak in the world (Manaslu 8,156 m). This trek has all the elements of other treks in Nepal including both Hindu and Buddhist culture, protected wildlife, rhododendrons and wild flowers, raging rivers, precarious bridges and stunning mountain scenery. Its highlight is undoubtedly the spectacular unhindered views of Manaslu. In terms of difficulty, it is comparable with the Annapurna Circuit Trek or Everest Base Camp trek.
