Very few Trekkers visit this pristine region which makes a visit here all unique and unspoiled. This area is marked by two cultural and historical highlights : Gorkha which is the ancestral seat of the Royal Shah dynasty and the temple of Manakamana. The trekking in this region is very unique since the starting points elevated as 1000 meters to the high pass of 5200 meters.
Manaslu region is encircled by the eight highest mountains of the world, close to Chinese border which offers you a real challenge. This trekking gives you an idea about intact tradition & culture, high & remote mountain trails.
Tibetan monks inhabit sacred monasteries & combined with the views of Tibetan plateau against stark white Himalayas all proves it as a truly spiritual place. As we continue further, we can visit very old monastery "Sama Gompa" at Sama Gaou, along with close up view of Mt. Manasalu, and our biggest challenge will be crossing Larkya La pass (5214m), here you are rewarded with great mountains views & then we descend from alpine to tropical areas, bursting with ferns, bamboos, pine, waterfalls & aqua-blue green lakes laced with cotton- white beaches.
