Manaslu Region was opened for the trekkers only in 1995. The residents of upper Bhudi Gandaki, a region known as ‘Nup Ri’ meaning Western Mountain are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants and they settled here during early 16th century consequently their speech, dress and customs are absolutely similar to Tibetans in the North of Nepal. The Mountain Views in Nup Ri are sensational and iconic that you can find nowhere in the world. A scenic drive through the Middle Hills leads to the trailhead beyond Arughat at Soti Khola. The Manaslu Trek crosses numerous ridges and villages as it rises to Philim. Here it turns east into the lower, then broader Upper Tsum Valley. Crops include barley, maize, buckwheat and potatoes.

The monastery at Mu Gompa and Rachen Gompa to the south has nuns of the Ngak-pa sect. Gumba Lungdang is another important nunnery where trekkers are welcomed at the evening puja. Their 360o views are amongst the best on the trek. From there a forest track leads to the Ganesh Himal Base Camp.At Lokpa, the trail rejoins the Manaslu Circuit and climbs through the Kutang – Nupri valleys (the western mountains: part of Tibet until the 1840s); peopled by another Tibetan community with its own distinct customs and language. The route is forested and gradually presents views of Himal Chuli, Ngadi Chuli and Manaslu with the glaciers that flow from their flanks.In Samagaon, visit the Kargyu Chholing Monastery and Pungyen Nunnery.
