The Manaslu Trekking - an off the beaten trails trek

Manaslu is a beautiful Nepali region that is surprisingly uncorrupted and virtually untouched. A trek in this region is a unique opportunity, especially because few people venture here. The area has been opened to trekkers only since 1991. Special permits are required to enter the region and admire spectacular beauty, especially along the border between Nepal and Tibet. Manaslu is exceptionally rich in biodiversity, with the impressive mountain ranges of the Himalayas, glacial lakes and abundant flora and fauna. A trip to this region offers a unique and rare opportunity to experience some of Nepal's most amazing natural beauty.
