Manaslu Larkya La Pass Trek is the perfect blend of adventure, cultural exploration, breath-taking scenarios, soaring mountains, and rich biodiversity in remote and off-the-beaten trails of Manaslu region. You shall be amazed to discover the influence of Tibetan culture among the inhabitants in the highlands of this region, especially the old Buddhist culture. This trek into the wilderness is equipped with the adventure of crossing the Larkya La Pass, after which, you shall be awarded with the panoramic views of mountains and spreading landscapes. Your trek from Dharmashala to Bimthang can be quite challenging as you shall be crossing the pass during this part of the trek; however, the altitude sickness might not challenge you, as you will have taken an extra day at Samagaon for acclimatization. 

Dyang, Samagaon, and Jagat are the best places to get the amazing views of Bouddha Himal, Ganesh Himal, Himal Chuli, and Mt. Manaslu along with other mountains. Despite being the trek in the remote part of Nepal, with a challenging climb, and no easy journey, a moderate level of body fitness is sufficient to do this trek successfully. Any prior trekking experience can be of great advantages to you. Otherwise, you can do some exercise few weeks before your trek starts. These make your body in proper condition and shape, making you somewhat familiar with high altitude air. We can customize the trek as per you need, availability of time, and preferences; feel free to inform us before the arrangement of the trek.
