The Manaslu Circuit Trek is a remote and challenging trip with rough steep tracks and culturally fascinating sights. Linked to Tibet in the upper Buri Gandaki (called Nupri ‘the western mountains’) and the Tsum Valley, this adventurous trek passes through the Larke-La (5215 m) pass while flaunting the spectacular views of Mt Manaslu (the eighth highest mountain in the world) in the backdrop.
This 16 day Manaslu circuit trek begins with sightseeing in the ancient city of Kathmandu. Next, it heads towards Sotikhola from where the trek truly begins. The trail meanders through several villages leading to Tatopani hot spring, exotic view of Larkya glacier and Larkya peak. Next to it, the trail also passes through the beautiful ,a href="//www.swotahtravel.com/tsum-valley">Tsum Valley and crosses the Larke la pass(5100m).

Passing through Gurung villages, this trail is one of the challenging and strenuous treks in Nepal as the higher elevated Larke-La Pass requires technical skills while descending a slope of right after the pass and long side trip to Tibetan border from Sambo.
