Manaslu Panorama Trek - Nepal

Manaslu Panorama Trek - Nepal

Manaslu Panorama Trek
Manaslu Panorama Trek is a memorable way,in a short period of time,to experience the real Nepal. From the beautiful pine tree covered Himalayan foothills, to the raging Budhi Gandaki River, to local Tibetan cultures lost in time and of course the mighty Manaslu Range. You will be hypnotized and fall under the influence of Mt Manaslu, eighth highest mountain in the world which dominates this region. This trek is relatively easy compared to the other trekking packages of Manaslu region as the route avoids crossing the high altitude pass of Larke La (5,200m) making it an option for your children to enjoy the challenge with you.

The trek ascends the beautiful Budhi Gandaki Valley and every day sees a change of scenery and the higher you go the closer you get to the mighty Mt Manaslu. Most importantly, this trek offers you the unforgettable panoramic view of Manaslu Range along with the Ganesh Himal and the Tibetan border Himalayas too. Mt Manaslu starts to grab your attention with sneak previews on the way up the valley as soon you enter villages like Lihi or Lho. So you don’t necessarily have to go to high altitudes to have your eyes dazzled with the mountain scenery.

The trekking proper begins at Soti Khola, a seven hour jeep ride or longer on a local bus. After 6 days of invigorating trekking passing through friendly villages like Jagat, Pilim, Lihi, Lho you reach the enticing village of Samagaun (3,500m). This is in a majestic setting perched right under the mighty Mt Manaslu and the Manaslu Range. You can just about reach out and touch them. It is here a few days rest is taken before the return trek back down the valley to Soti Khola. While in Sama Gaun the fit and hardy can trek to Mt Manaslu Base Camp (4,400m) which has outstanding high altitude mountain views.

This is your first overnight in the valley of temples and cows, probably the most in the world.

Day2 : Sightseeing in world heiritage sites
The capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu, being the historical and cultural heart of the country, is a popular destination for tourists, trekkers and other types of adventure seekers. The city is a marvelous amalgamation of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western cultures and influences. Patan and Bhaktapur are its two major neighboring cities. These two cities, like Kathmandu, have a rich historical, cultural and religious legacy which is reflected in the many temples, monuments and artifacts that they contain. You will be taken on a half-day guided tour of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur cities. In Kathmandu, you will be visiting Pashupatinath, the most famous and revered Hindu shrine in the country; Boudhanath, the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal, Soyambhunath, which contains both Buddhist and Hindu shrines and stands as testimony to the religious harmony that exists in the country; and the 15th-century 55-window palace in Bhaktapur. An orientation session for the trek, which commences the following day, will be organized in the evening.

If the weather is clear, we get the first glimpse of Mt Everest. Namche is the main trading village in the Khumbu and has a busy Saturday market - a meeting place for the Hindu traders from the lowlands and the Tibetan yak caravans that have crossed the glaciated Nangpa La. Namche is the gateway to the Khumbu. This is where we crash out for the night with all meals included.

Day5 : Acclimatization in Namche Bazaar. (Optional hike to Thame Valley or Everest View Hotel)

Our trek follows on the gradual trail with few ups and downs overlooking magnificent view of the great Himalaya. Along the way we can spot wild lives like pheasant, musk deer, or a herd of Himalayan Thar. The trail goes gradually down up to Kyangjuma. The path eventually reaches Sanasa which is the major trail junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp. The track then follows through the pine forests and after we cross the prayer flags festooned bridge over Dudh Kosi River, we reach Phunki Tenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post amidst the alpine woods. After having a relaxed lunch at Phunki Tenga we then have a little tough climb steep up through the pine forests while before we reach Tengboche.
