Amazing Manaslu circuit trek

E-mail Print PDF

As a children I was always curious about the mountains I see from my home (Kirtipur), thinking what could be after that. That curiosity has led me to several trekking trips around Nepal.Trekking has been my passion and inspiration for past few years. Each year I have been trekking to escape hustle and bustle of Kathmandu.

I find inner peace when I go near to mountains and enjoy the nature. During the Dashain vacation of 2017 I went to Manaslu Circuit trek for 9 days.

Kathmandu-Labu Besi-Jagat-Bihi Phedi-Namrung-Shyala-Dharamsala-Bhimtang-Besisahar-Kathmandu.

Here are the photographs that I took during that amazing trek.
