Around Manaslu trek to the 8th highest mountain in the world is popular trekking destination with fewer trekkers trekking around Manaslu base camp trek. It is also known as the Nepal’s last Himalayan Jewel with the highest point on this trek is Larkya la pass” which is largely believed to be one of the dramatic pass crossing the Himalayas. This route is also taken as the best alternative of classic Annapurna Circuit as the road construction in some section of Annapurana Region.

As we start to ascent higher you will see people following Buddhist culture rather than Hindu culture. You will be amazed to see the min walls, khanyi gates and chorten whicl fully gives you the vive of being inside the Tibet structure as does the topography changes to Tibetan structure. Chuli, Cheo Himal, larke peak, himlung, Annapurna II and Mt Manaslu itself are some of the superb views of Larkya pass. Once we descent we will pass through beautiful alpine valleys at Bhinthang and jagat to join the classic trail of Annapurna which can be crowed during the trekking Season. Finally we end our trek with a drive and one night stay in Pokhara and In Kathmandu.
