highlights of Manaslu Larke Pass Trek:
• It is far less crowded than its more well known peers Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit. The word is getting out about Manaslu, but there are still about 10 times fewer trekkers on the Manaslu Trail
• The trek is wild and remote, yet there are teahouses at every day stage, so trekkers don’t need to bring tents and food, making it more accessible and affordable than similar treks.
• The trailhead is reached over land, avoiding the need for domestic flights.
• The first part of the trail follows the Buri Gandaki, a deep, long river gorge, with many suspension bridge crossings
• The scenery provides all Nepal has to offer: you’ll trek from the subtropical jungle at lower elevations, through the Himalayan foothills to the high, cold and challenging crossing of the Larkya La above 5,100 meters / 17,000 feet.
• Experience the Nepalese and Tibetan mixture culture
• Walking between the borders of Nepal and Tibet
• Crossing Larkya La over 5215 meters
