A superb and much quieter circuit trek of an 8000m peak, the Manaslu Circuit has always been the more discerning choice to the Annapurna Circuit. It's a very challenging trek with some very long walking days and at high altitudes. In many ways the Manaslu Circuit feels more 'remote' and wilder than the Annapurna Circuit.
It's claimed by some that the world famous Annapurna Circuit Trek has been 'trashed' by road building. Has it? Perhaps there's always been a better option all along.
