Manang Overview

Situated about 3650m above sea level, Manang is a major stop on the Annapurna circuit trek. Many tourists trekking the circuit from east to west spend at least a full day resting in Manang in order to acclimatize to the higher altitude. The town itself prospers due to its role as a Tibetan trading outpost and tourist destination.

There are many side treks that begin from Manang including the popular trek to Tilicho Base Camp at Tilicho Lake. Other sites include many stupas and monestaries situated in the Manang Valley as well as views of Pisang and Chulu mountains.

The weather in Manang is dry and the topography is desert-like. This is due to its position next to the Annapurna mountain range. The mountains are over 8000m high and act as a barrier to keep monsoon clouds from reaching the town.
