There’s no doubt that Nepal is a trekking paradise with abundant hiking trails. It has all kinds of hikes, from easy to moderate and extreme. But, the uniqueness and element of surprise that Manaslu has is nowhere to be found.
The trek is something else and in a good way. It has mesmerizing landscapes with imposing hills, gorgeous mountains, cascading waterfalls, and so much more. As it’s expected, Manaslu looks like one of those magical places with breathtaking scenery and scenic vista.
It’s as gorgeous as it can be with kush hills and grassy meadows. Visitors will also be delighted to see the fresh-looking Nepalese villages, colorful towns, and beautiful valleys. You’ll also come across a lot of Nepalese cultures, traditions, and values, which is quite astonishing.
The adventure doesn’t end here, as you’ll also get to see the breathtaking landscapes, streaming rivers, and waterfalls on the trip. Walking down the trail, you’ll see many historical and cultural landmarks, especially after Jagat.
We’ll start our road trip to Manaslu Base Camp Trek with a scenic drive to Soti Khola via Arughat. From there, we’ll hike Machha Khola and subsequently follow the rugged trails to Jagat. We’ll pass several villages and climb the steep slopes before arriving at Samagaon.
Manaslu Conservation will also provide us access to wilderness areas and river valleys. It’ll also take us high up to the mountain ridges, which are steep and tough to walk. Hiking Larkya La Pass is probably the major highlight of Manaslu Base Camp Trek.
It takes us to the acme, providing us with a marvelous view of towering snow peaks and sweeping hills. We’ll also explore Manaslu Base Camp during the trek and enjoy the magnificent views before descending the trail to Sagmagaon. We’ll seemingly follow the trail to Besisahar, passing a couple of rural settlements and towns.
The itinerary ends after we take a local jeep to ride back to Kathmandu. Throughout the journey, it’ll provide us with an impressive view of shimmering mountains and turbulent rivers, including Trishuli.
