The Around Manaslu trek is often likened to how the Annapurna circuit used to be. The lodges are rustic, crowds are fewer, and the scenery is wild and rugged. Like the nearby Annapurna circuit, this trek covers a diverse array of landscapes starting in the green, lower hills and climbing past lakes and picturesque villages to the rock and ice covered Larke La (5106 m). From Samagaon there are spectacular side trips to Punggen Gompa an isolated monastery at the foot of Manaslu and Manaslu Basecamp.
