Bridges to Majestic Mountains
Nothing Short of Amazing
With the development of the road around the Annapurna Circuit, many people are looking for alternative remote and challenging treks. Manaslu Circuit is becoming more popular as an alternative and is one of our most beautiful, yet undeniably most challenging tours.
The challenging tour is about 50 percent rideable, but the views and the trails make every moment with the bike on the back worth it. With the high point at Larkhe Pass almost 5200 meters, this is a demanding tour. The technical trails make for amazing riding, however the 12-14 day tour is only recommended for skilled mountain bikers. Check below for the tour details.
