Tradition & Culture in Manaslu Region
Manaslu shares its culture and history with its neighbour Tibet. The major religion practiced in Manaslu is Buddhism and you can see many Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, architecture, and tradition along your trek. Yet the region expands
The region was only officially opened to foreign visitors in 1991.
In Kathmandu you will enjoy the high-standard hotel facilities. During the trek you will stay in guest houses.
Meals & Drinking Water
All locally cooked meals will be served in the guest houses. The higher you go the less likely you will find any local shops selling bars, chocolates etc. So for extra bits of energy snacks, remember to bring your own.
Drinking water can be easily found everywhere. You can get hot water from the teahouse and fill in your bottle everytime it gets empty. So, do carry a reusable water bottle with yourself. We request you to not buy mineral water bottle on the way as it will help in preserving the region. Moreover, you can also carry water purifier tablets or UV pen with yourself to purify the water.
