Manaslu Base Camp Trek with Larkya Pass

Trip Code: MCO

23 Days

Manaslu Village

Manaslu  Circuit Trek refers that you make a complete round the world’s eight highest Mountain Manaslu (8163 m) before  crossing Larkya Pass. Trekking to Manaslu  region   is wild and remote, yet there are teahouses  available every day.

Manaslu Base Camp with Larkya Pass is one of the classic treks in Nepal. The trail beyond the Budhi Gandaki is one of the most difficult routes with huge amounts of ascent and descent as you  trek up and down over ridges and onto shelves to bypass cliffs. The trail is rough and steep and at times literally hangs on a buff high above the river with its many bridges. This trek is geographically spectacular and culturally mesmerizing. The views of Manaslu and other neighboring peaks from Larkya La Pass are beyond tantalizing.

We begin our journey at Arughat Bazaar and follow the meandering Budhi Gandaki River northwards to the village of Deng. As we walk further northwards the valley opens up to reveal the delightful alpine meadows and small Tibetan-style villages which cluster beneath Manaslu's sweeping North Face. We pass through Deng, Ghap, Lho Gaun and Sama Gaun all typical Tibetan villages with rows of small revolving prayer wheels used by Tibetan Buddhists and a wall of mani stones positioned in the middle of the trekking trail.. It brings a good luck when we spin the prayer wheels being stood on the right side. Our trekking guide will interpret the things along the trail.

After we reach Samagaon, the largest and most important village in the region,  we visit Samagaon Gompa and next day we do excursion to Manaslu Base Camp (4,665m) before heading west to cross the Larke Pass (5135 m),

It is truly a classic and tough route linking the Budhi Gandaki with the Marshyangdi valley. From Samagaon  and Larke Pass  the views of the base  camp of the Mount  Manaslu look  fantastic.  Our porters will carry your bag pack and you just enjoy taking photos or chatting with locals along the trails.

Our descent passes through the beautiful alpine meadows at Bhimtang before we join the main Annapurna Circuit route which takes us out to the trek ending point at Bhulbhule. From Bhulbhule we drive back to Kathmandu via Beshisahar.
