Manaslu Trekking is one of the restricted trekking routes. We need a special permission to do this trekking. Only a few people have done trekking in that region. This trek is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. It is one of the pristine trekking routes: most of the cultural and religious values are still intact. It follows an ancient salt trading route along the steep-sided Budhi Gandaki river with pine-forests, Buddhist monasteries, different flora and fauna, and endangered animals such as snow leopards and pandas. You can also get a clear view of Manaslu along the way.
The inhabitants of this region are called Nupri, direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress, customs and way of life are almost exclusively Tibetan. There is still continuous trade between Nupri and Tibet. Here you can find more products from Tibet than from Nepal; for example, Chinese cigarettes are found more frequently than Nepali cigarettes. The views of the mountains in Nupri are marvellous and the crossing of the Larkya La is one of the most remarkable in the Himalaya.
