1. This strenuous trek circumnavigates the Manaslu range and is one of the recently opened wilderness treks. Though it is a strenuous and remote area trek, it is rewarded with brilliant mountain vistas of the Ganesh and Manaslu Himal ranges and insights into the cultures of a cross-section of ethnic Nepalese tribes and peoples, perhaps not available on any other trek. Starting in the lush green lower hills you will pass through middle hills and finally emerge into the high, arid desert region that is actually a part of the Tibetan Plateau where people of Tibetan origin dwell and where the predominant religion is Tibetan Buddhism. This trek is challenging while crossing of the Larkya La Pass which requires excellent physical stamina.
