Manaslu Trekking is one of the restricted trekking routes. We need special permit to do this trekking. Only few people have done trekking in that region. This trek is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. It is one of the pristine trekking routes: most of the cultural and religion values are still intact. It follows an ancient salt trading route along the steep-sided Budhi Gandaki river with pine-forests, Buddhist monasteries, different flora and fauna, and endangered animals such as snow leopards and pandas. You can also get a clear view of Manaslu along the way.
The inhabitants of this region are called Nupri, direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress, customs and way of life are almost exclusively Tibetan. There is still continuous trade between Nupri and Tibet. Here you can find more products from Tibet than from Nepal; for example, Chinese cigarettes are found more frequently than Nepali cigarettes. The views of the mountains in Nupri are marvelous and the crossing of the Larkya La pass is one of the most remarkable in the Himalaya.
Trekkers planning to travel to controlled areas in Nepal opened for group trekking need to get trekking permit issued by the Department of Immigration under the Home Ministry. The govern-ment has opened following previously restricted trekking areas for the group trekkers. Trekking permits will not be issued to individual trekkers in those trekking areas. Require minimum 2 Pax to do this trekking because it is a restricted area.
