Short Manaslu Trekking
The Short Manaslu trekking passes through the paddies and terraces of picturesque Gurung and Tamang villages, surrounding rhododendron forests. However, the main goal of our Manaslu trek is to reach ‘Baraha Pokhari, known to be worshiped by Nepalese witch doctors for special power.
Besides the natural panorama, the region is equally known for great wildlife experience. You can see Himalayan Black Bear, Wooly Hare and Himalayan Ghoral and several other medicinal and aromatic plants in its dense forests.
However, the monks around the areas are highly motivated to protect the wildlife of the area, so hunting is strictly banned.
