Mt. Manaslu, the eighth-highest mountain in the world, is located at an altitude of 8,156 m (26,759 ft) above sea level in the Mansiri Himal range east of the Annapurna Massif in the western part of Nepal. Manaslu means "mountain of the spirit," which comes from the Sanskrit word Manasa, which means "intellect" or "soul."

Manaslu is surrounded by peaks, including Ngadi Chuli, Himalchuli, and Baudha. The mountain's long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions and culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape and is a dominant feature when viewed from afar.

The Manaslu region encompasses the sub-tropical foothills of the Himalayas and the arid Trans-Himalayan high pastures bordering Tibet. In the Tibetan language, Manaslu is known as Kutang, where "tang" means "a flat place."

Mt. Manaslu was first climbed by Toshio Imanishi from Japan and Gyalzen Norbu of Nepal (members of a Japanese expedition) on May 9, 1956. Manaslu is known as a Japanese mountain since the large number of climbers who have successfully reached the summit are Japanese.

This area also offers a combination of rich cultural heritage, unrivaled beauty, and biological diversity. The people in this area, especially in the Upper Budhi Gandaki (river) Valley, are of Tibetan origin, and we can also see the culture, tradition, and way of life of the Gurung ethnic group. This place is mainly inhabited by two ethnic domains: Nubri and Tsum. The river's fork at Chhikur separates these two ethnic domains.A place called Nupri (meaning Western Mountain in Tibetan) is a trading center among Tibetans and Nepalese.

Whereas the Tsum Valley, "Tsum," which means "vivid," is a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley also known as the "Beyul Kyimolung, the Holy Hidden Valley of Happiness," first described by Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) in the 8th century, which boasts Buddha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the north.

The Manaslu region is one of Nepal's most fascinating tourist destinations.This trek was officially opened to tourists in 1991, but mountaineering expeditions have long had access to the area. On May 9, 1956, Manaslu was first climbed by Toshio Imanishi from Japan and Gyalzen Norbu of Nepal (members of a Japanese expedition). Manaslu is known as a Japanese mountain because many Japanese climbers have successfully reached the summit. This region is still restricted to a limited number of groups, and only organized trekkers in groups can trek in this area. In 1998 A.D., for the conservation and sustainable management of the area, Manaslu Conservation Area was established.

Manaslu via Larkya La (5100m) is an 18-day trek starting from Arughat (570m) and ending in Dharapani/Syange. This trek will show you the fascinating and mesmerizing beauty of Nepal and allow you to experience the art and culture of different ethnic groups.
