If you have never been to Nepal, then this should be your bucket list item!

This is a very famous trekking route which is located in the central highland of Nepal. Manaslu circuit trekking takes approximately fifteen days to complete.

It is a trek of around 15 days, but at the end of the trek will return back with more excitement and more energy. Basically, there will be two reasons why you will feel happy about the trek. First, you will get the opportunity to spend time in Nepal, A country rich in culture, traditions, and spirituality. Second, you will have an amazing experience of trekking and exploring the beautiful Himalayas.

You can spend a lifetime reading and learn about the Himalayas, but to really understand them, you need to go there and see them for yourself. We OASIS Nepal believe in feeling the Himalayas rather than reading about and learning about the mountains.
