Trip Overview

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.

Introduction

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.

Private trek or group option

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.

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.

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.
