Manaslu Circuit Trek is none crowded wildernes classical treks which are located at Gorkha district. This trekking route which along an ancient salt- trading route through the bank of Budi Gandaki River Valley. This trek suits best to those who are looking for the challenging but less trodden trekking in Nepal. This trekking route is also part of the great Himalayan trails. While on the trip we get to marvel at the magnificent views of Mt. Manaslu (8163m) which is the eight tallest mountains in the world. But it is completely possible, and if you are fit and are short on time, then this will fit well with a 2-week vacation. This trekking route is also becoming the best alternative of classic Annapurna circuit due to the road construction in the some sections of Annapurna region. We also pass along the several forests that consist of huge varieties of vegetation where we can see rhododendron and oak at the higher altitude consists of Himalayan blue pine, diverse variety of medicinal herbs and aromatic plants etc can be found in these forests.

This route is also conservation area is a sanctuary for large diversity of birds and animals where we can see huge species of wildlife like grey musk deer, blue sheep, Himalayan Thar along with endangered animals like snow Leopards and red pandas are conserving in the conservation area. The route heading to Syala village along the thick pine forest, we are able to have vies of many snow-capped peak in Manaslu.  It is believed to be in stark contrast to trekking in the Annapurna region making ‘Around Manaslu Trek’ a first choice for those who prefer to become one with nature.
