The Manaslu trek, one of the finest and most scenically spectacular in Nepal. This guide records the paths, villages, valleys and mountains seen along the way. A number of those who venture to the Manaslu Himal will no doubt be first-time visitors to the Himalaya. Information set out in this book will give an idea of what to expect - of the preparation required before going, the physical demands of the route and a hint of the rewards to be won every single day. Day by day the trek reveals scenes of outstanding beauty, yet it is not only the visual splendour that will be remembered years after, but the smiles of local people, their simplicity and their spirituality.
