Meanwhile, our staff members will acquire the Manaslu Restricted Area trekking permits that you will need for the trip.</p>

<p>After breakfast, we will have pre trek meeting and you’ll be briefed by the trek leader about the journey ahead. Once we are done loading all equipment, we will hop on the jeep for an 8 hour drive to Soti Khola, which lies 140 kms North West of Kathmandu. We will drive through Dhading Besi and the town of Arughat today to reach our destination, Soti Khola. We will have a lodge booked for us where we will be spending the night.</p>

<p>The trek finally begins today as we walk through the pleasant Sal forests above the roaring Budhi Gandaki River. As we make our way through Khursane and the Gurung village of Labhubesi, we will have a feel of what trekking in the hills of Nepal is like. Refreshing waterfalls, rocky cliffs, roaring rivers, old suspension bridges and peaceful forests will make this an enjoyable first day of trekking. We will stay the night in a lodge at Machhakhola.</p>

<p>There will be multiple short sprints of ascending and descending to do on the trail today. We will cross Tharo Khola and Thorlabesi to arrive at Tatopani. This small town is popular for its rare natural hotsprings. Unfortunately, the hot springs haven’t been functional since the 2015 Nepal Earthquake. After a brief lunch break at Tatopani, we will resume on the trail and cross suspension bridges over the Budhi Gandaki and Yaru Khola. We will also climb flights of stairs on the way to Dobhan and Tharo Bharyang. It is a short trek further to Jagat once we are past the west bank of Budhi Gandaki.</p>

<p>Our trek today begins with a climb on a rocky ridge towards Salleri. We will pass through Sirdibas and Ghatte Khola and cross a long suspension bridge before Philim. We will stop momentarily for rest at this small Gurung village and continue north on our trail shortly after. We will pass a steep and uninhabited gorge and slowly trek towards the Budhi Gandaki. As we trek back and forth along the east and west banks of the river, we will reach a bamboo forest. Past the bamboo forest is Deng Khola, and Deng village lies a little further.</p>

<p>After breakfast, we will set out on the trail and cross the Budhi Gandaki again today to climb to Rana (1910m). The trail today intersects with various other trails and locations including Bhi, Ghap and Prok. You can enjoy a pleasing view of Siringi Himal today from Prok as long as the weather is favorable. We will cross the Budhi Gandaki many more times today on our climb through the forested paths to the Buddhist village of Namrung. Once we reach Namrung, we will be able to witness sights of Ganesh Himal and Himal Chuli along with Siringi from earlier.</p>

<p>The trek today will be a short and pleasant one as we head towards Lho. We will walk leisurely through the tranquil forests and explore the numerous chortens at Lihi village. The view of Ganesh and Simnang Himal close by is a refreshing sight as we trek towards Sho village. Our destination, Lho village is a short distance further. Lho village offers a fantastic view of the towering Manaslu peak. In the afternoon, we will have ample time to visit the famed Ribung gompa as well</p>

<p>The trek today is an even shorter one as we will cover the miniscule distance between Lho and Samagaon. We will pass through Shyala, which is encompassed by peaks like Himal Chuli and Ngadi Chuli on the left, Manaslu and Ganesh Himal straight ahead and some other peaks to the right. We will relax for the rest of the day at Sama and spend the night in a lodge as usual.</p>

<p>A fun day of exploration lies ahead of us there are a lot of exciting locations to visit nearby. This rest day also serves another purpose as acclimatization day. Taking an occasional day off to rest and help your body acclimatize is very important while trekking in the Himalayas. The Pungyen monastery nearby offers great views of the Manaslu glacier if you are looking for a light and easy trek. However, if you are feeling energetic, then the Hike to Birendra Lake or Manaslu Base Camp is an excellent way to experience the true wilderness and beauty of the region. The Pungen and Birendra lake hikes won’t take more than a couple of hours to complete. However, the Manaslu Base Camp trek will take you 7-8 hours to get there and back.</p>

<p>The Budhi Gandaki river comes into picture yet again today as we trek along its riverbank. We will cross a bridge over the Budhi Gandaki and come across the trail leading to the Manaslu Base Camp. We will instead trek on the Larkye La trail and make our way through Kermo Kharka. After a short while further of trekking through the juniper and birch forests, the short trek today will end as we arrive at Samdo. We will spend the day resting our bodies to prepare for the tough hike the next day.</p>

<p>First we will make the easy trek to Dharmasala. We will cross the Budhi Gandaki again, and a few streams after. Once we see the Larkya glacier, we will tread around the valley of Salka khola and climb up to the shelter at Dharmashala. This place is also known as Larke Phedi, which roughly translates to Larke Base Camp.</p><p>From here, the trail leads us to a valley on the north side of the Larke glaciers. While steadily climbing across the moraines of the glacier, you will see the towering Larke peak and Cho danda nearby. The trail today also take us through the Larke La (5160m) pass, which is the highest point of the Round Manaslu Trek. From the pass, you will also be able to gaze upon Himlung, Cheo, Kangguru and Annapurna II peaks. After enjoying all these amazing views, we have an easy but long trek ahead of us to Bimthang.</p>

<p>More descent lies on the trail for us today as we cross the high pasture at Sangure Kharka and head towards the Dudh Khola. We will cross the river through a bridge and enter the forest blooming with rhododendrons. The trail leads us to the high altitude farms at Karche (2785m). We will continue on to a ridge that quickly transitions into a riverbank. The village of Gho is a short distance further. While it is possible to stay at Gho, we will continue past Tilije all the way past the police checkpoint to Dharapani.</p>

<p>Our final session of trekking takes us into Annapurna Circuit section. We will pass through the villages of Karte and Tal, occasionally crossing the Marshyangdi River, before finally reaching Chamje. Our final destination for the day will be Bensi Sahar. With this, our trek comes to an end and it is time for a small ceremonial party.</p>

<p>After breakfast, we will pack up our things and head to the bus stop to catch a ride to Kathmandu. This 175 kilometer drive will take us past serpentine roads, fast flowing rivers, green hills, lush forests and picturesque villages. After enjoying the countryside scenery for almost 6 hours, we’ll finally arrive back at the capital. You will then be escorted to a restaurant to celebrate the completion of our trek with a farewell dinner.</p>

<p>You will meet up with all the crew and group members over breakfast today.
