Ultimate Manaslu Trek give you chance to explore hidden treasure in the Himalaya. Most of the trekkers are walking through the regular trekking trail, which observe common things by everyone and you won’t be escape from this. But in this trip, we will guiding you to explore sacred places which have not been explored by everyone. Manaslu is recently open tea house trekking route in the remote Himalaya, the culture; tradition and religious belief maintain Tibetan traditional values that no longer exist in this time.

Manaslu is located northern Himalayan range in the Gorkha District of Nepal; as a notched "wall of snow and ice hanging in the sky". Mt Manaslu (8,163m) is eight highest mountains in the World with beautiful shape.  Apart from climbing, Manaslu is very popular for the trekking in the wilderness area, a part of the Manaslu Larkya La Pass, a notable path in Nepal. There are main two part combination for the Ultimate Manaslu Trekking; Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit. Due to its isolation at behind the Himalaya and inaccessibility, this area and people of here are untouched by mainstream of development from centuries. That’s why; people live hood and culture of this valley has remained unique.

The people of here are following Buddhism, every village has fluttering colorful praying flag, Mane wall, Chorten, and Gumba from early century. They worship Lord Gautama Buddha, Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche), and some Bodhisattvas (a person refers to a human being dedicated to the achievement of enlightenment for the sake of others.) Accordingly their custom the second son and daughter need to send monasteries to become monks and nuns. Some household of Tsum valley practice polyandry (women has more than one husband at a time) marriage system. This system is much better than monogamous system to prevent the fragmentation of land and family property among the brothers.
Manaslu Conservation Area (MCAP) has been established in 1998; spread over 1663 sq. km. and it’s altitude rises from 600m to top of the Mt. Manaslu 8,163 meters. This is haven a mixture of habitats for 33 species of mammals, 110 species of birds, 11 species of butterflies and 3 species of reptiles. It conserve sustainable way approx 2000 species of plants, 11 types of forests and over 50 species on useful plants.

Ultimate Manaslu Trekking offers variety trip option through the off the beaten trail at Manaslu Restricted Area, as part of newly developed Great Himalayan Trail. The trek begins Arughat Bazaar at Gorkha and ends two to three weeks afterward in Besisahar, the starting point of the Popular Annapurna Circuit Trek. Now days this trip can do tea houses or Home stay basic, this is help to local to generate income and create job opportunity using local manpower and product.

Mostly, the trail follows an ancient salt trading route along the Budhi Gandaki river bank. Passing through the rural villages (Sotikhola, Khoralbesi, Machhakhola, Dobhan), rice terrace, jungle, waterfall, gorges, hill, amazing landscape and Mountain View get in Jagat, from where enter restricted area. Then ascend to the Philim village after cross the Bhudhigandaki River and heading to Tsum Valley through the Lokpa, Chumling, Chumchet, Chhekamparo,  Chhule Nele then finally get in Mu Gompa (3,700 m).  Tsum Valley was opened for the tourist since 2008; you need special permit to visit. Tsum is sacred valley with ancient Monastery, Chorten and virgin natural beauty, not permitted to hunting, fishing and sacrifice. It is believe that the Buddhist saint Milarepa has meditated in the caves of Lamagaun in 11th century; still we can see his holy foot print. The valley also boasts some unique and historic monasteries, including Rachen Gumba and Mu Gumba, which lie on a pretty plateau nestled in the lap of the valley, and Gumbalungdang (3,200m) and Ganesh Himal Base Camp situated at the base of a conical hill against the main slope of Ganesh Himal an elevation of 4,800 meters.

Now you are in Manaslu Circuit main trail, so there is more flow of trekkers, batter accommodation and more option for meals. You walk through the unique villages Deng, Ghap, Namrung, Lho Gaun, Samagaun, Samdo, Dharmashala and Bhimtang via Larkya La Pass an elevation of 5,160 meters. When getting higher the mountain scenery is more beautiful and charming. Ancient Monastery, Chorten, Stupa at Sama Gaun is incredible; people of here are following Buddhism.

Cross the Laudang Khola to the west bank on a shaky loge bridge and climb steeply through pristine pines and rhododendrons on a ridge. There is a hut in a Kharka about halfway up, with the trail ongoing behind it, then up a birch-lined dry creek bed and eventually you emerge into grassy flats behind the lateral moraine of the Toro Gompa glacier. Continue climbing past seasonal yak huts and you will find a track on the moraine wall that gives superb views of the picturesque of mountains.
