However, it is the inaccessibility of the region that sets it apart from other trekking routes. As we follow the Buri Gandaki Gorge northwards, the people, villages and landscapes become increasingly Tibetan in character. It is a privilege to witness first hand this rare culture and civilization. In particular the sacred Buddhist near Sama and Samdo offer a fascinating insight into Tibetan Buddhist practices. The Nepal Government strictly regulates the trekking to Manaslu and are trying to preserve the social and physical character of the area. Trekking is allowed only if accompanied by a liaison officer. All food and cooking fuel has to be carried in and all rubbish carried out.
