Manaslu has unique environment and exceptionally rich bio diversity which have made this region as the finest tourist destination of Nepal for many years. The region consists of varieties of cultural diversities, natural scenery of the majestic Himalayan ranges, high altitude romantic glacier lakes and fascinating flora and fauna, all these natural and cultural features of this region have made it one of the most popular tourist destination of Nepal and is restricted area requiring special trekking permit to get entry into the region for foreigners.This trek was forbidden to the tourists till 1991. When for the first time the Japanese Expedition team ascent the Manaslu Peak (8157m.), it became known as "Japanese Mountain". Since it is still a restricted area special permit from the government of Nepal is needed. This trek begins from Gorkha or Aarughat, Trishuli Bazzar or Dhading and is usually done in an well-organized camping group. This trek is culturally and geographically important and fascinating. The Tibetans of the upper Budi-Gandaki, the region also known as Nupri (the western mountains), and the Tsum Valley are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress and customs are exclusively Tibetan. The trade between the area and Tibet still goes on.
