Manaslu Circuit Trek

Manaslu Circuit Trek – Manaslu Circuit Trek UK


In 1992 AD, the Manaslu Circuit Trek, a trekking destination referred to as untouched, opened its gates to visitors, lying in the lap of Manaslu, the eighth highest peak in the world. The mystical adventure of the Manaslu Circuit Trek takes travellers to see mountains, glaciers, a substantial snow-capped Peak, narrow river valleys, wild animals, and a lush green forest full of wildlife. As part of the Manaslu Circuit Trek, we follow the Budi Gandaki River, once a salt trading route during ancient times. While Trekking, the magnificent view of the Himalayas will engross a traveller and make them forget all the difficulties of the trek. The Himalayas include Mount Manaslu (8156 meters), Himalchuli (7893 meters), Sharing Himal (7177 meters), Buddha Himal (7422 meters) and Ganesh Himal (8156 meters).
