Manaslu Circuit Trek is definitely an extra wounder of the Himalayas. It is a forbidden region for bag packers, without special permits trekkers cannot conduct their trip into Manaslu.

This makes Manaslu trek a less-known trekking trail of the Himalayas, an isolated and the last forbidden area close to the capital of Kathmandu city.

Manaslu region is adjacent to the Annapurna region of Nepal, this can be completed in a 10-day itinerary or can be extended into a two-week itinerary, depending upon the trekkers’ preference and physical fitness level.

However, the majestic view, Tibetan culture, and the remoteness of the Himalayas are enchanting vistas of this trail. Due to its strict provision, fewer trekkers dare to hike in the Manaslu area.

Here are some collected trekkers’ photos to show a glimpse of the Manaslu circuit trek:
