The lower part of Manaslu region lies at Gorkha district in west of Nepal. This part of Manaslu region has recently been developed to promote culture, religion and tourism through home stay programs hosted by local tourism development committees to improve local economy, to empower women and create jobs for the youths. Nowadays the Lower Manaslu Home stay trekking is becoming more popular among the youths, elders and families with children. Accommodation is mostly based on home stay or tented camping as teahouse/lodge facility is limited to only a few places. In home stay, you spend your days with a local host family and immerse yourself in their culture and tradition, interact daily with them, enjoy local meals provided by your host family and practice Nepalese language.

Lower Manaslu area is least crowded as compared to other trekking routes and is ideal for those who want to experience Nepal’s typical village experiences and cultural values. One can visit ethnic villages with friendly home stay, gain spiritual experience, visit various shrines and monasteries, natural caves, rivers, forest, ethnic culture and famous view points. It is moderate trek with 5-6 hours walking a day. The lower part of Manaslu regionis comparatively warmer than upper Manaslu region due to its low level landscape. Temperature remains warm most of the time. One feel cold in the morning and in the evening but during the day time you feel warm.
