The trek on an ancient trail along which you enjoy authentic Nepali culture and hospitality, promises breathtaking views of Manaslu and other Himalayan peaks always on the background. You get to witness ancient cultures and the almost medieval lifestyle of the people as you trek up north towards the peaks. 

Shielded from modernization and commercialization, the local people’s lifestyle has changed little over the centuries, thus retaining their purity. So your trek to Manaslu will be akin to time-travel. going back in time. The trail has teahouses along the way for a night halt, but one could opt for a camping trek and sleep under the stars.
