The Manaslu region offers best trekking route in Nepal and one of the untouched region. It is an unspoiled trekking route and open since 1991. Trekker can view spectacular beauty, glacier lakes, flora& funa, and Tibetan culture, one need a special permit entering this region. This region is rich in biodiversity that has made this region one of the best destinations for trekkers.
The Manaslu region started its program working with integrated conservation and Development Program (ICDP) from 1997 as the Manaslu Eco tourism Development Project. The project was funded support of the Government of Nepal and the Asian Development Project under the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation’s. This program assisted and increased the ability of the locals to take a leading role in managing their natural resources. MCAP completed the Eco tourism Project in 2001.
On December 28, 1998 Manaslu Conservation Area (MCA) becomes the second conservation area under NTNC management for 10 years. The main objective was to upliftment the capacity of the local communities in the Manaslu area. The management mandate expired, but at the request of local communities, District Development Committee of Gorkha and political parties in the district has extended under working till 2018. Manaslu is a mountainous region in northern part of Gorkha District. It is one of the richest cultural region and encompasses a 1,663 area with 7VDCss. In Manaslu Region, 2000 species of plants, 33 mammals, 110 birds, 3 reptiles, 11 butterflies in 11 types of forest have been reported from the area.
The trekkers can view the beauty of majestic Himalayan ranges, cultural diversity (most follow Buddhism) and high altitude glacier lakes. Most people follow Buddhism so, trekkers visit large Buddhist monasteries like Shringi Gompa in Bihi, Mu and Rachen Gompas in Chhekampar. The Lama’s gurus have prohibited the locals to hunt wildlife and helps in the protection of animals like the snow leopoard, gray wolf, musk deer, blue, sheep and the Himalayan Thar.
The area of these people was lacking behind from basic infrastructure development.
