Manaslu Larke Pass Trek is a rare opportunity to explore a relatively new trekking region in Nepal. Abundant in spectacular views along the border of Nepal and China, Manaslu Trek is located in the west of Kathmandu in the Manaslu Region situated at the elevation of 5135m (16844ft). This trek was officially opened to tourists in 1991. Mountaineering expeditions have long had access to the area though. Himalayan Sanctuary Adventure offers you a 21 days round Manaslu Trek but you can make your own Itinerary as per your request, desire and time frame. The suitable seasons to trek in this region are spring (March to May) and autumn (August to October). Manaslu also known as Kutang is the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,163 metres (26,781 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Mansiri Himal, part of the Nepalese Himalayas, in the west-central part of Nepal.
