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.

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.
