Tour Description

The region around Mt. Manaslu (at m, the world’s ninth tallest peak) is less well known than many other parts of Nepal, and visited relatively infrequently by trekkers. This has more to do with its remote location and lack of development and publicity, however, as the Manaslu area is a fantastic hidden haven of secrecy and seclusion, where yaks outnumber the Gurung people, who live in village settlements perched among the foothills.

Just east of its better known but slightly less high neighbour Annapurna, Mt. Manaslu and its surroundings offer some staggering trekking scenery including precipitous ravines and thundering rivers as well as soaring peaks. This makes trekking here quite strenuous, but there are countless highlights to compensate for the exertion, including the crossing of Larkya La (5135 m), a pass connecting the head of the Buri Gandaki valley with the Dudh Khola, a tributary of the Marsyangadi. Although Larkya La is some 300 metres lower than Thorang La on the Annapurna circuit, views from Larkya La are considered to be even more spectacular.
