The Ultimate Manaslu Trek includes the circuit of the Manaslu massif and the trek to the lost world of Nar and Phu. This adventure offeres trekkers a variety which makes Nepal so unique. The trek starts at less than 600m/2,000 ft. among tropical terraced paddy-fields inhabited by Hindus, slowly ascending to high alpine valleys inhabited by ethnically Tibetan people. The Ultimate Manaslu Trek combines the Manaslu Circuit and the Nar-Phu treks and is 37 day, 36 nights. But you may choose to participate either in the Manaslu Circuit Trek (24 days, 23 nights) or the Nar-Phu Trek (24 days, 23 nights). See detailed itinerary or inquire for details.
This trip takes you to the remote circuit around Manaslu, the world’s seventh highest peak at 8,156m/26,750ft. The Manaslu region, located along the border of Nepal and Tibet, is both beautiful and fascinating. The Manaslu area has been opened for trekking only since 1991. After crossing over the Larkya La, you continue West toward Nar Phu. Closed to trekkers until 2002, very few trekkers visit the Nar and Phu valleys. Crossing over the Kang La pass, you rejoin the Annapurna Circuit Trail above Pissang.
The Manaslu and Nar-Phu regions, located along the border of Nepal and Tibet are geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. The inhabitants of the lower Buri Gandaki region are Hindus (Brahmin/Chhetris) and Gurungs (Bonpos and Buddhists), while the inhabitants in the upper parts of the Buri Gandaki river are Buddhists and direct descendents of Tibetan immigrants who settled here in the early 1600s.
