A highly favored, and fairly recently opened trekking route to the Manaslu Massif will award you with pristine mountain views, and genuine adventure. Opened in 1992, this area offers a combination of rich culture heritage, unsurpassed beauty, and biological diversity. Mount Manaslu stands at 8163 meters (26, 775ft) and is the 8th highest peak in the world. It sits along the border of Nepal. Manaslu means "The Spirit-Mountain" in the local dialect which refers to the benevolent but strong deity that is said to dwell within. Trekking in the Manaslu area is one the highlights of Nepal and is full of stunning natural beauty. To truly experience some of the most breath-taking scenery available on earth, look no further than the circuit of Manaslu via the Larkya La. For years the area north of Manaslu called Nupri was closed to foreigners due to its proximity to Tibet. However, in 1991 it was opened, but it took a few years for the word to get out. Now it is one of the premier trekking routes in the world. This Tibetan enclave is situated at the head of the Budigandaki, and is west of the Langtang Himal and stretches between both the Trishuli River and the Budigandaki River. To the east of the Manaslu region is the Ganesh Himal. At 7,429 meters the main peak is Ganesh Himal, but there are several other prominent peaks with their own distinctive character. Ganesh Himal I was first climbed by a Swiss-French joint party in 1955 during the Golden Age of Himalayan Mountaineering and exploration. Many of the other peaks saw summit attempts during the 1970’s to the 1980’s. Due to their proximity to Kathmandu, and on a clear day can be seen from the Kathmandu Valley this area enjoys high popularity among trekkers. Nevertheless, this Tsum Valley area is still rural and full of pristine nature and has only recently seen regular parties of trekkers. It is a fantastic place where you can get a glimpse of the life in the Himalayas in its original form. One of the premier routes is the trek from the Chilime Khola River to the Bhungre Khola River which will introduce you to the heart of the Ganesh Himal.
