Manaslu trek is less crowded trekking takes you to the base camp of Mount Manaslu. This trek was officially opened to tourists in 1991, but mountaineering expeditions have long had access to the area. Though the Larkya La is not a difficult pass, the trek around Manaslu is harder than most in Nepal. In many places the walls of the Budhi Gandaki valley are perpendicular, so you cannot walk along the bottom of the valley. There is a huge amount of wasted climbing involved during the first part of the trek as you climb up and down over ridges or onto shelves to bypass cliffs. The trail is rough and steep and it often literally hangs on a bluff high above the river.
The trek is remote and has no rescue facilities because there is no road for vehicles but we can manage helicopter for emergency rescue operation and for normal case trek leader manage it locally to assist tourists. The trek is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. The inhabitants of the upper Budhi Gandaki, a region known as Nupri ('the western mountains'), are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress and customs are almost exclusively Tibetan.
