The adventure begins with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Soti Khola, the starting point of the trek. From there, the trail leads you through lush forests, terraced fields, and traditional Nepalese villages, offering glimpses into the rural way of life in the Himalayas.

As you ascend higher into the mountains, you'll be treated to panoramic views of Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world, as well as other peaks like Himalchuli, Ganesh Himal, and Shringi Himal. Along the way, you'll pass through charming villages like Machha Khola, Jagat, and Deng, where you'll have the opportunity to interact with friendly locals and immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of the region.

The highlight of the trek is reaching the picturesque village of Samagaon, situated at the foot of Manaslu. Here, you'll have time to explore the village, visit ancient monasteries, and soak in the breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks.

After exploring Samagaon, the journey continues with a scenic descent back to Soti Khola, where you'll bid farewell to the mountains before driving back to Kathmandu. Along the way, you'll have time to reflect on the unforgettable experiences you've had amidst the Himalayan landscape.
