The Great Himalaya Trail N6: Ganesh Himal & Manaslu

Manaslu, the world’s 8th highest mountain, marks the halfway point of the Great Himalaya Trail. Its Sanskrit name means Mountain of Spirit and this spirit certainly reflects into the peaceful villages and valleys around it.

Some say the Manaslu trek is the best all-round trek in Nepal. Trails are quiet, immaculate and grassy and devoid of dusty mule caravans hauling provisions for tea-house trekkers.

The villages you pass through have wonderful character: Kholabesi with its majestic backdrop of Ganesh Himal; picturesque Jagat with its stone paved square; and Samagaon with heavenly views of Manaslu towering above – nowhere else will you get up so close to an 8000m peak – the scenery is simply amazing.
