The Manaslu Circuit trek is one of the best treks in Nepal. It takes you around the Manaslu conservation area and leads to a breathtaking view of the eighth highest mountain in the world.
If you’ve already been to the Annapurna circuit, this trek can be a great alternative. It is a 14-day trek that starts at Soti Khola and ends at Beshi Sahar and can be extended to 22 days with an additional side trek to the Tsum valley.
