Manaslu (8,156m) is the world’s eighth highest peak. This area, situated close to the Annapurna massif, was only opened for trekking in 1992 and is now acknowledged as one of the finest trekking routes. Heading north from Gorkha, along the BurhiGandaki River, this route turns westwards into a high alpine valley with typical Tibetan villages, and a number of fine monasteries. A steeper ascent to Larkya La Pass (5,212m) is rewarded by stunning views of the Manaslu and Annapurna peaks. At Dharapani we join the Annapurna Circuit and follow the Marsyangdi River south.
