Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,163 meters above sea level, situated in the west-central part of Nepal. The name Manaslu means "mountain of the spirit" and is derived from the Sanskrit word Manasa, meaning "intellect" or "soul". Manaslu was first climbed on May 9, 1956, by Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu, members of a Japanese expedition. It is said that, given the many unsuccessful attempts by the British to climb Everest before New Zealand Edmund Hillary, "just as the British consider Everest their mountain, Manaslu has always been a Japanese mountain".
The Manaslu area is bordered by River Budhi Gandaki and to the west River Marshyangdi. This area is marked by two cultural highlights: Gorkha, which is the ancestral seat of the reigning Shah dynasty, and the temple of Manakamana. Since the treks in the Manaslu region originate at around 1000 meters and reach as high as 5200 meters, the trekker will see a wide range of flora typical of the middle hills and alpine regions of Nepal. The wildlife includes barking deer, pika, and Himalayan marmots, and Plants to be seen around here are pine, and rhododendron, Birds to be sighted in the region are pheasant, raven, and chough. People of Tibetan origin inhabit several villages. Other groups found here are Gurung and Tamangs. The best time to trek here is between September and May. A few teahouses are seen in the Manaslu Conservation Area; however, teahouse trekking is not a suggested option. Government regulations require all the groups trekking to the Manaslu Circuit to be fully sufficient.
