Manaslu and Larke-La pass Trekking, Larke Pass Trek, Manaslu Circuit TrekkingThis is one of the most challenging and remarkable trek, Mt. Manaslu is 8th highest peak on the planet, locally known as 'the mountain of the spirit', is one of the most spectacular snow-peaks in Nepal, and the Manaslu Circuit, officially opened in for trekking from 1992, offers a combination of rich culture heritage, unsurpassed beauty and biological diversity. It is a cultural trek par excellence, without a doubt one of the best treks in Nepal. Oddly, it's also one of the Nepal Himalayas least known treks, and happily doesn't boast of apple-pie lodges, sprawling trekking villages. A trek around the 'high' Manaslu circuit is a step back in time, a glimpse of pristine Nepali and Tibetan villages, a walk through a remote Himalayan paradise. The diversity of the trek, from the Hindu middle hills to the Tibetan high-country dwellers and the awesome mountain scenery of the Manaslu Himal and surrounding peaks which can be combine to make this circuit with Annapurna Circuit crossing the Thorung-La Pass one of the most interesting, as well as one of the most challenging, treks in Nepal.
