The literal meaning of Manaslu is the Spirit-Mountain, considering the local jargon as the mighty deity.

From 1951 to 1991, Manaslu Trekking Region was closed to foreigners that hindered the development in this region. Mostly Manaslu area is occupied by the Tibetan refugees who fled to this unexplored region of Nepal and have been the residents for generations. The houses in these Buddhist villages are stone-roofed. The fantastic beautiful hamlets are Namrung, Samagaun, Sambdo, Lho, situated at the laps of the magnificent giant mountains of Manaslu, the Himal Chuli massif, and Dhaulagiri peaks, and the extreme beauty of the glaciers and lakes, surrounded by the Rhododendron forests and the pine forests. The alpine climate of this Manaslu region is very intoxicating.
The trekking to the Manaslu region commences from Kathmandu valley to the Aru Ghat, covering the distance via a full-day direct drive onto a bus or any privately hired jeeps. The next day, we will begin our trek after having the early morning breakfast. We will walk following the trail of the Budhi Gandaki river. For the first few days of the hike, we might face the difficulty level of the trekking, such as the steep Budhi Gandaki Gorge, the highest point of Manaslu Trek Larkya La Pass, etc. The trekking trail has more accessible pathways somewhere and is still complex in some parts of the trekking. Gradually, we ascend and descend the trek leading to the Manaslu Conservation Area just before the Jagat. Here we can feel the tremendous cultural shift from Nepalese Hinduism to Tibetan Buddhism. The lifestyle of the local Tibetan residents is a unique experience for you too.
