Manaslu Circuit Trek, Video (Itinerary)

This April, we trekked to the tough trail of the Manaslu Circuit, crossing one of the longest and the toughest Passes of Nepal, Larkye La. The journey was tough but totally worth it. Tsujan walked despite fevers while one of our travel companion had to return halfway through the trek due to injuries. But the journey continued, and we’re glad we did. We made some wonderful friends on the way, witnessed the culture and were lucky to see avalanche in the Frozen Lake. The people are amazing and the area is comparatively less crowded. Wildlife is abundant, and the locals very friendly. Highly recommended trek to anybody who’s looking for a great trekking experience in Nepal. Please like, share and leave your thoughts on the video.
