Furthermore, the Manaslu teahouses are renowned for their warm hospitality and delicious cuisine. As we begin our trek from a lower altitude of around 700m, we witness landscapes that are incredibly varied, ranging from the green countryside and lush forests to spectacular high-altitude landscapes with striking huge glaciers and snow-capped mountains!

The Manaslu Circuit Trek begins with an amazing sightseeing tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu, where we go and explore Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhnath Stupa, Royal Kathmandu Durbar Square, and Swayambhunath Temple.

As we pass several villages, we marvel at the captivating views of Mt. Manaslu. Exploring the rich local heritage and biological diversity of this legendary region is really amazing! Further along the Manaslu Circuit trek, we head north all the way towards the iconic Larky La Pass at a height of 5,106 meters.
