This trek was officially opened to tourists in 1991, but mountaineering expeditions have long had access to the area. Manaslu (8,156m) was first attempted by a Japanese expedition from 1952 until 1956 when the first ascent was made.
Gorkha is the traditional starting point for treks up the Buri Gandaki. Dhading and Trisuli Bazar is the other option to start this trek. Though the Larkya la pass is not a difficult pass, the trek is harder than most in Nepal.
The trek is remote but geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. The mountain views are magnificent and the Larkya pass is one of the most interesting Himalayan pass crossings. The local inhabitants of this region are direct descendants of Tibetans immigrants. This is a restricted area and we have to follow the restriction rules and regulation period.
We can organise this trek on a private basis for groups of friends, families, clubs, charities or any other group. Depending on your previous trekking experience, you may want a Climb High leader or have no ‘leader’ but sill use the help of one of our guides and/or porters. Costs for this option are available on demand but are often not a huge amount greater than joining one of our ‘fixed departures’. Please contact us with your referred dates and itinerary and we’ll give you a quote.
If you wish to discuss any aspect of the trek or your suitability for it, please contact us by telephone:

As we are a Nepali company, you will need to send your deposit by bank transfer to our bank account in Kathmandu. This is a completely safe process and may be done at any UK, European, Aus/NZ or US bank in a few minutes. Some banking websites even allow this to be done online.
Details will be sent to you once you have decided to proceed with your booking.
Trekkers need to provide their own personal clothing and equipment. It is recommended that you use tried and tested kit on the trip rather than relying on brand new kit you’re not sure of.
A complete kit list is to be found on this website.
Climb High is a local Nepali company and as such we treat our own people with the respect and good conditions you would expect. Many team members are from our own families and you can be assured that the treatment they receive is second to none. All insurances and porter conditions are met, and more.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, but as this is adventure travel in a remote mountain region, please take the itinerary as a statement of intent rather than an absolute. Travel in Nepal can be dangerous, delayed and highly changeable. Weather conditions, availability of porters and the health of team members can all contribute to changes. The guides and their Sherpa assistants will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if necessary.
