Nepal is the land of wonders. The country has many amazing places that are yet to discover. On a journey to exploring Nepal, we had been to Manaslu region in June.
One of the best treks in Nepal is the Manaslu Circuit trek. It leads to a stunning view of the eighth-highest mountain in the world and circles the Manaslu Conservation Area.
This trip can be a fantastic alternative if you’ve already completed the Annapurna Circuit. With an additional side trek to the Tsum valley, the 14-day trek, which begins at Soti Khola and ends at Beshi Sahar, may be made into a 22-day journey.
It is one of the most graceful of the 8000-meter giants, with the Annapurnas to the west and Ganesh Himal to the east flanking it.
The route leads you from the humid lowlands with their terraced fields of rice and millet through the massive gorges of the Budi Gandaki, which are home to stunning waterfalls and turquoise-colored waters. The Manaslu climb has suspension bridges that are unmatched in length and height, and the yearly monsoon frequently washes away smaller bridges, forcing hikers to use partially submerged boulders.
So, keeping all these things in mind, we decided to go on a Nepal trip this June. First we booked our trip with Nepal’s Heaven Himalaya, an adventure company and then flew to Nepal. The team was there in the airport to welcome us. From airport dropout the trip went smooth.
