Manaslu Circuit Trekking is a stunning 14-day journeys (18 days including travel and days in Kathmandu) which treks around the world's seventh highhest mountain, beginning in the busy market town of Soti Khola, going up and back along a different path, ending in Besi Shahar. Manaslu Circuit Trekking for someone who wants something different in Nepal but still offers the most striking and jaw-dropping scenery. Many people liken the Manaslu Circuit trek to the Annapurna before it got busy! It is in a region which was closed to outsiders until the early 90's and tourism is still restricted. It is also not quite as high as the Annapurna circuit and really is a stunning and less trodden path.
