Manaslu circuit trekking is one of the beautiful trekking routes which offer us spectacular view of Manaslu along with some other glittering ranges of mountains. The trekking route is equally enriched with the genuine Hindu and Buddhists religion. The trekking to this region is main focused on the splendid and close view of the eight highest mountain of the world i.e. Manaslu with the altitude of 8163m above sea level. To trek at this region is considered as one of the best feelings in the life of any trekker’s life. Not only the high mountains but also due to the presence of different types of flora and fauna, the charm of the nature has increased. We need to pass several pass and several large rivers during the trek.
