Manakamana Resort - INTRODUCTION

The trail from Abu Khaireni enters Manakamana from the west. Whitewashed Newar houses and Mediterranean-style cafés line the route as it makes its final approach to the famous Bhagwati Mandir , set in a square near the top of the village. The cable car summit station is situated just south of the temple; it's about five minutes' walk up an obvious path and steps from there. Tradition has it that the goddess Bhagwati rewards those who make the pilgrimage to her shrine by making their wishes come true; she's especially popular with Newar newlyweds, who come to pray for sons. Animal sacrifices are an essential part of the ritual, and locals raise goats, chickens and pigeons specifically for the sacrificial market.

 

Manakamana is also famous for its oranges, which come into season in November and December, and for its mountain views: from high points around the village you can see a limited panorama from Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal across to Peak 29 and Baudha of the Manaslu Himal. If you're game for more, you can continue 45 minutes further up the ridge to another temple, the Bakeshwar Mahadev Mandir , and then another fifteen minutes to Lakhan Thapa Gupha , a holy cave near the highest point of the ridge, where the views are tremendous. From there, the path bends north along the ridge and eventually meets the Gorkha road, reaching Gorkha in three to four hours' walking time from Manakamana.
