Far less crowded than many other options, the Manaslu Circuit is the ultimate off-the-beaten-track trek in Nepal. Your route takes you through subtropical jungle, up a deep river gorge crossing several suspension bridges, and through the Himalayan foothills, before climbing up to cross the spectacular Larkya La pass – one of the most dramatic in the Himalaya. Staying each night in teahouses, you will encounter the incredible local hospitality and gain unique insight into life in this remote region. In short, it is easy to see why many describe the Manaslu Circuit as the best all-round trek in Nepal.

"After two treks with a guide from Pokhara Mountain Tiger, I can highly recommend the services of Neema and his agency. My guide/porter was extremely trustworthy and friendly... They were quick and competent to answer my messages. Neema organised my trekking permits and the flight from Pokhara to Jomsom as well. Everything was perfect and very friendly."
“This was my first trekking experience and also my first time in Nepal. I cannot speak highly enough of the excellent care and support I recieved from my guide... Nepal is a wonderful country: come and see for yourself!”
In 2007, I trekked the full Annapurna Circuit. Neema was my guide, porter, translator, cultural interpreter, and friend. Trekking with Neema was a delight. Neema’s knowledge of the trails was invaluable. I highly recommend him to take care of youl. He is friendly, funny, and super experienced. Have a great trek!
