Manaslu Base Camp Trek is an ideal trekking package for trekkers who want an isolated and unspoiled trekking adventure. This trek offers an opportunity to explore the natural beauty and cultural heritage of a lesser-known region.
Trekking through the Manaslu Conservation Area, the trip leads to the base camp of the Mt. Manaslu (8163m), the eighth highest mountain in the world. Moreover, the cultural introduction of the Tibetan communities along the way grants a unique experience.
The 16-day Manaslu Base Camp trip starts with your arrival in Kathmandu, where you will explore the glorious UNESCO world heritage sites. From Kathmandu, you take a scenic countryside drive to Soti Khola and then start trekking. Beginning the enchanting affair, you trek along the Budhi Gandaki River to head to Machha Khola. Passing Lapubesi and Nauli Khola, you head towards Machha Khola.
The next day takes you closer to the Himalayas as you tread along the forested trails to reach Jagat. The Tibetan culture and traditions begin to grow as you trek further north from Jagat. Passing Philim and Lokpa, the trek heads to Bihi and goes further towards Namrung Village.
The Tibetan communities along the way offer warm hospitality and graceful reception. You head deeper into the settlements of the Tibetan descendants as you pass Lho and Sho villages.
Trekking along with the views of Pung Gyen Glacier, you arrive at Samagaon. From here, you take a day off from trekking and explore the Manaslu Base Camp vicinity on a short hike.
From the base camp, the views of Mt. Manaslu (8163m) and numerous other peaks in the Manaslu massif are blissful. Naike Peak (6211m) and Larkya Peak (6249m) also make surreal appearances in the Himalayan panorama.
