The Manaslu Larke Pass trek provides the ultimate Himalayan hiking experience. It features quiet trails and unique villages, together with amazing scenery and remarkably rich biological diversity.
The Manaslu region is located about 100 kilometers north-west of Kathmandu, and has only been open to foreigners since 1992. The area is still restricted and visitors require a special trekking permit to enter.
On your trek you will have magnificent views of Mt. Manaslu (8163m), the eighth tallest mountain in the world. Both sides of the Larkya pass offer great mountain and valley views. Indeed, the pass is considered to be one of the most dramatic high crossings in the Himalayas.
The trek starts from the town of Arughat after a 6-7 hour jeep drive from Kathmandu. From Arughat we trek through the impressive gorge of the Budhi Gandaki, passing villages perched on steep valley sides. Beyond the village of Ghap the valley starts to open out, offering panoramic views of snow-capped mountains. You will have the feeling you are entering a secret Buddhist world. There are old monasteries, mani walls, stupas and prayer flags.
As we go higher the scenery becomes even more impressive. Approaching Larkya Pass (5160m), snowy peaks are all around us. On the western side of Larkya La the trail descends into the heavily forested valley of the Marsyangdi River whose course we follow in the shadows of the giant mountains of the Annapurna and Manaslu ranges until we meet the road.
