Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft.) above sea is located about 64 km (40 mi) east of Annapurna. Manaslu was first climbed on May 9, 1956, by Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu, members of a Japanese expedition. It is said that “just as the British consider Everest their mountain, Manaslu has always been a Japanese mountain”.

9 Days short, Manaslu Circuit Trek is the shortest package that follows the same ancient route of Budi Gandaki River which people used to walk for salt trading then. This is a wonderful trekking experience into the isolated Manaslu region. The region, which is also termed the Manaslu Conservation Area, comprises sub-tropical Himalayan foothills to arid Trans- Himalayan high pastures bordering Tibet. The trekking route is through mountainous terrain prone to the consequences of monsoon rainfall, landslide, and landfalls. The area covered conservation zone is 1,663 square kilometers (642 sq. mi) and is managed by the National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC) OF Nepal.
