Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. It is a beautiful summit located in north west of Nepal near the Tibetan border, with two main peaks of 8163m and 7992m.

Around Manaslu is a challenging and strenuous trek that passes through many villages, with the added advantage that this high altitude trek offers spectacular views of the mountain.  

The shortest circuit starts at Gorkha or Arughat and takes the most direct path to Samdo, the last village before the Larkya pass at 5160m the highest point of the trek.

An alternative longer route from Gorkha, is to leave the path after Barpak in order to go to the Rupina pass (4720m) returning to the main track after Philim. This alternative route is very wild and challenging involving several days without seeing habitation and crossing a glacier with many crevasses not to mention traversing a wide and turbulent river on a tree trunk!

Another possible route explores the Tsum Valley where the cultural heritage has been preserved as it has only been accessible for trekking since 2008. Many chorten and Mani Walls with the Ganesh massif in the background can be seen and several gompas can be visited.

Client Reviews

    Suite à un premier trek en 2017 dans la Tsum Valley avec des amis qui connaissaient déjà Happy Yeti Adventure et un retour plus qu'enchanté de ce voyage avec cette équipe. J’ai par la suite déjà renouvelé par deux fois l’expérience avec un trek en 2019 sur le tour du Manaslu et en 2022 au Mustang avec des amis.
    Les équipes de Dhané sont au top et l’organisation impeccable.
    Je recommande vivement cette agence

  • Merci chaleureusement Happy Yeti Aventure ! May 2023 • Family

    Je garde un grand souvenir de la Sum Valley avec Happy Yety, Dhane et son staff. Cette vallée coincée entre le massif des Anaps et celui du Manaslu, proche du Tibet, avec sa culture tibétaine nous a fascinés.
    Happy Yéty, cette découverte fut un régal !
    Je recommande vivement cette agence pour le sérieux remarquable de son créateur, Dhane !
