Explore Mountains and Animals
The dense forest of this region is home to many rare and endangered animals. And the area is completely restricted to hunting, fishing, and animal slaughtering. If you are lucky you can get a glimpse of the Himalayan Thar and the blue sheep. Walking along the rapids of the Budi Gandaki River, Machha Khola and the Soti Khola is a wonderful experience of mountains like Mount Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Hiunchuli.
One of the greatest achievements of the Manaslu Circuit Trek in Nepal is the Larkya La Pass climb at a height of 5,160 meters, which is the highest point of this trek. While visiting Mu Gompa, Rachen Gompa, and Nunnery Temple you will get some insights into Tibetan Buddhist culture. The lifestyle and traditions of the people living in the valley are unique and traditional and the people of the area have so far been able to preserve their uniqueness without any influence from the outside world.
For trekking Manaslu Circuit, get a special trekking permit issued by the Government of Nepal through an agency, which is registered in Nepal and required at least 2 persons.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
