Trekking in August has been one of the new trends in Nepal nowadays. August is the month when the monsoon is about to end. The sky is clear and the views are dazzling to enjoy. Similarly, trekking in August gives the opportunity to experience green terrace fields, tea houses, and scenic beauty. One of the suitable trekking destinations to trek in the month of August is the Manaslu trek. Manaslu circuit trek is one of the well-admired trekking spots situated in the Gorkha District of Nepal at an elevation of 4800 meters. Manaslu peak is the 8th highest peak in the world having an altitude of 8156 meters. This trek was officially opened in 1992 and a special permit is required for the trekking at this peak because the Manaslu region is one of the restricted trekking routes in Nepal. Due to the open border and Tibet in this region to avoid any sorts of foreign problems, special permits have been issued by the government to trek in the Manaslu region.
Manaslu Circuit trek begins with the scenic drive from Kathmandu to SotiKhola then the trail is followed by Macchakhola, Jagat, Dang, Namrung, and Samagaun, and finally base camp. It takes about 9-10 days to reach base camp. Standing in front of the 8th tallest peak in the world gives different feelings. During the trial, the route offers mind-blowing views of peaks like Himal Chuli (7793 m), Ganesh Himal (7319m), Shringi Himal (7187 m), and Manaslu Himal (8156 m). After reaching base camp we will spend some quality time, take some pictures and return back via the same route. This trek offers splendid views of mountains, a mixture of rich cultural heritages, candid adventure, unbeatable beauty, and biological variety. Beautiful forests of rhododendron and pine trees can be experienced. The houses of this region are so unique made up of stones and piles of firewood, and water-driven prayer wheels.
