Why is Manaslu Circuit Trek a Must Experience

# 1. Because it is surrounded by snowcap mountains towering at above 8,000m.  Not to mention the above 5,000m pass crossing!  Very few places on this earth will have these combinations!

# 2. Because it is a remote and off-the-beaten-path compared to the other well-known teahouse treks in Nepal. Manaslu trek gained popularity since tea houses were built here in 2010. Prior to that, you had to camp. 

#3. Because it is not crowded as other popular trails in Nepal. little Less than 8,000 tourist visits Manaslu every year unlike EBC Trek has over 30,000 visitors every year. 

# 4. Because it is relatively cheaper than Everest Base Camp. You don't have to spend more than $320 alone on flight ticket to Lukla. 

# 5. Because it is rich in culture. The Tibetan origin Nepalese live in the area called Tsum Valley.  They practice their own ancient form of dialect, art, culture and religion. 

# 6. Because  Manaslu trek offers a lot more side-trips than any other base camps. You can spend more than 3 weeks and venture into different places such as Tsum Valley, Manaslu Base Camp, Pungeen Gomba, Tibetian border, Birendra lake etc. 

# 7.  Because it follows a circuit trail.. so unlike other base camps, every day is a new route as you make a loop in this trek. 

# 8. Because it is generally safer... There is a lower chance of altitude sickness due to the long days of reaching high elevation. 

# 9. Part of The Great Himalayan Trail... Manaslu is one of the major parts of "The Great Himalaya Trail' - a single long distance trekking trail from the east end to the west end of Nepal, includes a total of roughly 1,700 km long path.

# 10. Expedition As of 2003, the peak has seen only 240 successful ascents and 52 fatalities, making it the 4th most dangerous 8000m peak, behind Annapurna, Nanga Parbat, and K2.
