Join us for an exciting 14-day Plant Hunting Expedition to the beautiful mighty Manaslu region. Some call it the best all-round trek in Nepal and it’s on the Great Himalaya Trail. Manaslu (Nepali: मनास्लु, also known as (Kutang) is the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,163 metres (26,781 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Mansiri Himal, part of the Nepalese Himalayas, in the west-central part of Nepal. Its name, which means "Mountain of the Spirit", comes from the Sanskrit word manasa, meaning "intellect" or "soul".

The Manaslu region is regarded by some to be a ‘beyul’. In Tibetan Buddhism- a sacred valley. Some believe that meditation and prayers are multiplied a hundred fold there.

While our maximum altitude will be 5125m (Larkya pass) We will enjoy amazing views of the high mountains, including Annapurna, Lamjung himal, Ganesh himal and Manaslu. We will be collecting plants and seeds for Garden in the Himalayas and studying the montane habitat. The expedition promises to be the adventure of a lifetime.

Trek starts between 8th and 11th August.
