Manaslu Trek Highlights 2019-02-07 11:30:34 Manaslu Trek Blog

Up to this day, it remains a remote and virgin trail, less crowded than any other treks in Nepal.  It is also one of the least explored trails in Nepal because of the especial trekking permit imposed by the government. That alone is enough to poke the interest of anyone looking for an off-the-beaten trekking experience in ...
