Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world and the highest peak in the Gorkha district. It is located in the western-central area of Nepal. The region has been gaining popularity for its various trekking routes available, all with extraordinary snow-capped mountain sceneries and wonderful bio-diversity. The region is also culturally rich and a habitat for many species of birds and animals. The region has been declared as a protected area as Manaslu Conservation Area by the government in 1998 to protect the unique diversities of nature. The protected zone covers 1,663 sq. km of the Manaslu region.
The main view during Manaslu Region Trek is the Manaslu peak itself at the height of 8,156m. The name Manaslu is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Manasa’ which means “Mountain of spirit”. Trekking in Manaslu region provides an opportunity to witness the extraordinary view of the grand Manaslu. The scenes throughout the Manaslu Trek are breathtaking and make a wonderful journey through the tranquil forest path and amazing mountain ridges. The trekking routes in the Manaslu region can be extreme as the untouched path leads to some rugged rocky terrain with an inexplicable view. Ngadi Chuli, Himalchuli, and Boudha Himal surround the towering Manaslu Mountain.
Some of the popular trekking destinations in the Manaslu region are Manaslu Circuit trek and Tsum valley trek. These regions are geographically awe-inspiring and culturally fascinating. The region is rich in biodiversity and a real adventure in the foothills of the Himalayas. The path is isolated as Manasalu has fewer visitors than its nearby popular region, Annapurna. The Manaslu trek route is through the rough path with teahouses established at intervals. The region also leads to the wonderful Nupri valley with inspiring wood houses. Tsum valley is the part of the trek that lies beyond the Himalayan range. It is another wonderful experience as the landscapes as well as the culture varies to the great extent.
The region has many Nepali style villages as well as houses of Tibetan origins. The countryside is green with terraced farms and orchards. The landscape further to the north turns to alpine vegetation. The northern extreme parts of the region have fewer settlements and visitors have to lodge in home stays that give further opportunity to experience the culture of the semi-Tibetan settlements. The ethnic groups of people here are Tamangs, which also means horse riders. Trekking further high in the mountains just above the Tiru Danda is like a walk in the clouds with only the towering Himalayan range visible from the height.
