Manaslu also recognized as the Kutang, established its position in the 8th highest mountain in the world. Manaslu means the "mountain of the sprite", which is come from the Sanskrit word Manasa, meaning "intellect" or "soul". Manaslu first climbed by the Japanese team on may 9, 1956 which is leading by the Toshio Imanishi and Gylazen Norbu, members of the Japanese manaslu Expedition.
Manaslu trekking situated the sirngi Himalayan ranges. since opening the trekking 1991, then there are develop the tourism in the manaslu region in Nepal. People of the Namrung, Lho, shou, samagaon try to develop and preserve the culture since large number of the tourism. just there are beginning the manaslu tea house trekking after two decade still there are important more infrastructural things prompt the tourism in broad way.
It was the salt trading center from down to the Larkya bazzar or Bhotkhola. From soti khola to the larkya bazzar there are eighteen hundred stream mixing with the Buri Gandaki river. so, people used to say that 'athara saya khola'. In the manaslu trekking for the scenic views Lho village is very popular. In the background of the monastery, it seemed the manaslu, hinchuli very grandeur. Upto the village samagaon , people transportation from the Arughat while from the village samdo, they things bring from the benshishar via larkya pass. In Nepal people have different principle for the trekking such as holiday, celebration the honeymoon in Nepal, Vacation , cultural prospective. In the case of the manaslu trekking you can trek both honeymoon and holiday point of the views.
Manaslu is known in the Tibetan language as "kutan I", in which "tang" means the Tibetan word for a flat place. It is a very large peak with an elevation of 8, 156 meters which is world's eighth highest mountain. In a view of its favorable topography of long ridges and glacial valleys, Manaslu offers several routes t the mountaineers. Important peaks surrounding Manaslu include Ngadi Chuli, Himalchuli and Baudha. A glacial saddle known as Larkya La, with an elevation of 5, 213 metres, lies across the Nepal-Tibet boarder. The peak bounded on the east by the Ganesh Himal and Buri Gandaki River gorge, on the west by the deep fissures of the Maryasyanngdi Khola with its Annapurna ranges of Hills , to the south is the Gorkha town at the foot of the Hill. There are six established trek routes to the peak, and on the mountain the south face is reportedly the most difficult for climbing.
Manaslu trekking and first experience
When i was child i used to see mount. Manaslu from our houses, school and field. Many camping trekkers with big groups i frequently saw , heading to the manaslu and larkya pass. most of the times they camp in our school lawns in gorkha. we knowly and unknowly greeting them with joint palm and announced "namaste" and eager to speak English with them. our village Nareshwor, just reached from kathmandu within 6 hours and 1 and half hours walking from the gorkha bus station. In my knowing , Bindhayabasinee school ground is still first camp to go rupi na la and manaslu larkya pass trekking.
I see manaslu different parts of the Gurkha district with different angles. I profound more when i see the manaslu and other mountain from a khoplang Bazzar, because i was there first time and seemed different manaslu Himalayan landscape. From Liglig kot Aappipal to the siranchok i observe the manaslu areas landscape and concentration the mount manaslu, Himalchuli, boudha Himal, Ganesh himal. Similarly, i got chance from a Bhacheck Bazzar gorkha and sirandanda to see the way of the dudth pokhari and manaslu Himal. I feel surprise local people of the sirandanda village have a said chuchure himal to the Mount. Manaslu. In 2010, i been to the village barkpak it took two days from the Nareshwor village.Before i go Barpak village gorkha, i used to heard many stories about this. some people told that it is the bigger than the gorkha administrative market. In the School quiz programmae, there are show the photo of the soldiers, i didn't know the name of him but one boy from the same village give correct answers to say 'Gaje Ghale'-a winner of the Victoria cross and awarded by the queen Elizabeth. Since then i know more Barpak located the manaslu village and en route to rupi na la pass and laprak village Nepal. I thought manaslu himal is located in the barpak village but that was not true. From there it took 3-4 days to reach the samagaon ,base of the manaslu. When we been in the Barpak manaslu Nepal, there are huge village with stone roof. Many gorkha soldiers every year selected from the same village and that help to upgrading the economy and status of the local people.
we stay village mandre, just half an hour down to barpak then heading up to the barpak then take a tea and coffee then heading up to larprak. After walking 2 hours from barkpak home stay village, we reached to the ridge of the hills and there was little snow and visible very clearly ganesh himal, boudha himal, sirngi himal, manaslu himal and left parts of the manaslu some ranges of the annapurna visible. Then getting down to the laprak village in the evening. then we heading to the singla after this down to the Machikhola, junction of the manalsu trekking. We stay one day lapu village then walk two hours to the Arkhet, then bus to the gorkha bazzar. we observe the gorkha palace-which is old capital of Nepal and king was migrated more than 100 years ago kathmandu at the time of the campaign of unified Nepal. Gorakh Nath temple, Kalika temple, gorkha temple with the scenic views of the manaslu in the northern site of the Gurkha

Reviews of Manaslu trekking:
In October 2012, we did the manaslu trekking from a Mountain Air Guided adventures(p)ltd. It is very amazing trekking in Nepal. we dream to see the mini tibet in Nepal Tibet boarder in Manaslu gorkha. Larkya pass was our first target to go manaslu trekking. we heard Annapurna trekking is disturbed by the jeep and construction and many friends whom i meet they suggest us manaslu trekking. we were very fear that expensive restriction permit of the manaslu but our guide and manaslu trekking organizer Mr. Naba Thapa makes us easy for us. Mr. Naba, made a restriction permit for us from a immigration office in Nepal which is situated in kalikasthan kathmandu. It took 2 days to make a manaslu restriction permit. we just payed to the mountian Air Adventures service charge to make a document of the manaslu then we hire a Guide. we paid $500 usd for 20 days trekking Guide in restriction manaslu. In the comparison of the package tour it is very cheap. In the package , it cost $1100 usd , every company of the thamel, kathmandu. but we are two people just we paid $250 each. we make permit for 10 days cost $100 usd, then manaslu and annapurna conservation fee Rs. 2000 each. we amuse the views from Lho village of the Manaslu. similarly, vilage samagaon and samdo are very highlighted for the tibetan cultures. we know classical salt trading route to the tibet and Larkya Bazzar. we feel very amuse to pass the larkya pass, actually it was not togh to climb up even moraine , and sleepry 2 hours from the larkya pass. Awesome Bhimtang village, from where excellent to see the hidden himalayas and manaslu north faces. we never forget this trip, next time we planning to come for kanchenjunga trip in Nepal. we recommended very much manaslu trip to the Mountain Air Guided Adventures(p.)ltd and mr. Naba. see you next time in Nepal
