Meander off the beaten path and pround the worn stones of the Manaslu Circuit Trek (8,163 meters) a stunning but relatively little known 21 days trek in Nepal. Thanks to its striking mountain scenery and reging rivers this circuit proves to be a ferociously beautiful experience that all trekkers will enjoy.
This three-week trek will take you around the world’s eighth highest mountain on a remote trail following the mightly Budi Gangaki River northwards. The greatly improved trails along the Budi Gandaki river gorge provide beautiful walking conditions to absorb the inspiring scenery in peace and harmony. The trek, in terms of difficulty, is often compared with the Annapurna Circuit Trek or Everest Base Camp trek therefore a good level of fitness is required. The spectacular unhindred views of Manaslu, the Hindu and Buddhist culture, protected wildlife, rhododendrons and wild flowers, raging rivers precarious brides and stunning mountain scenery provide a cluster of wonder that makes the circuit a true hidden gem.
