Manang District is a part of Gandaki Pradesh. It is one of the seventy-seven districts of Nepal. The district has Chame as its district headquarters. It covers an area of 2,246 km2 (867 sq mi) and had a population (2011) of 6,538.
The pass of Thorung La at 5415 meters above the sea connects the district to Mustang District by providing a route between the towns. This district gets the least amount of rainfall among districts of Nepal as it lies to the north of the Himalayas which blocks monsoon air.
The Manang Valley, which lies close to the Nepal-Tibet border, offers tremendous opportunities due to its rich natural flora and fauna. Three tracks start from here.
Along with the Marwaris who have migrated from India to Nepal in large numbers, the Manangies are the best-known traders of Nepal. They have received special dispensation from the King to trade in South East Asia, and travel abroad with precious stones and metals, musk, herbs and other items.
The trail from Manang to Muktinath has been used by the locals for hundreds of years to transport huge herds of sheep and yak in and out of Manang. It is an important route for the people of the region.
