The Manaslu Circuit trek is located in the Lamjung district of Nepal to the North West of Kathmandu. It is considered to be one of the most challenging treks in Nepal and has only officially been open to tourists since 1991. The Manaslu Circuit Trek is the perfect combination of rich cultural heritage with the unsurpassed natural beauty of the Himalayan Range. Trekkers can see the fascinating Tibetan Culture that is prevalent in the Manaslu Region as many people in this region are direct descendants of Tibetan Immigrants that settled here in the 1600’s.
Mount Manaslu is the 8th highest peak in the world with an altitude of 8156m and is the centerpiece of this trek. It is located along the border between Nepal and Tibet. It is believed that the word Manaslu was derived from thesanskrit word Manasa which means ‘soul’ or ‘intellect’. Hence, Mount Manaslu is also commonly known as the ‘Mountain of the Spirit’.The highest point in this trek is the ‘Larkya La Pass’ which is widely believed to be one of the most dramatic pass crossings the Himalayas. With far less tourist traffic than other regions Manaslu has a remote and secluded feel which makes this trek perfectly suited to trekkers that want to experience the beauty and solitude of nature.

To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. This will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.
