Nepal houses some of the greatest hikes in the world.

And while most stick to the tried-and-true teahouse treks like Annapurna or Everest Base Camp, others find their fortune off the beaten path.

Skirting the eighth-highest mountain in the world, the Manaslu Circuit is a week-long pilgrimage winding through subtropical jungles, crimson rhododendron forests, fierce whitewater river crossings, vast Himalayan foothills, and spectacular snow-capped peaks. It’s the perfect choice for adventurers looking to escape the crowds of Everest and Annapurna without compromising on the scenery.
