Why should you trek in Manaslu?

As Manaslu region is a restricted area, as defined by the government of Nepal, it gets fewer trekkers. While initially, it was all camping trek, you can find teahouses along the route nowadays. But still, the charm of camping trek in the region is unparalleled. With the fewer number of trekkers in the region, trekking there is certainly a peaceful adventure. Your love for longer days and peaceful trek comes true in this adventure.  The real wilderness of the mountains and remote villages in Nepal has remained intact in the region. Since the region gets fewer trekkers, there is less influence of the modernity as you trek to the higher elevation. You will find nature in the most pristine form possible and villages uniquely wonderful. Of all, the smartest answer is that you will be able to enjoy the trek in the most peaceful environment possible while you explore the mountain wilderness unlike in the popular regions.

How to go Manaslu Trekking?

Trekking in Manaslu goes to the central-west region of Nepal and the Himalaya. As Manaslu region is in the restricted area list, taking a guide service while you trek there is a mandatory obligation. You will have to obtain a special permit to be able to trek in the region which your trekking agency will get for you. After obtaining the permit and other necessary stuff, you will drive to Soti Khola which is the starting point of the trek nowadays. You will finish trekking in Dharapani or further down towards Besi Sahar in the Annapurna Circuit Trekking route. You can also do the trek following the reverse route – starting at Besi Sahar onwards and finishing at SotiKhola. But to follow the first route is the best idea to acclimatize well in the mountains.
