Geographically spectacular

Manaslu Circuit Via Larkya La Pass trek is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. The inhabitants of the upper Buri Gandaki also known as Nupri. The western mountains are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants entry the Gorkha District and exited the Lamjung District. On ABC Trekking Their speech, dress, and customs are almost exclusively Tibetan. Manaslu is the eighth tallest mountain in the world that captures the local heritage of the Himalayan region. There is still continuous trade between Nupri and Tibet; Chinese cigarettes, for example, are found more frequently than Nepali cigarettes. Also, include Annapurna Region Trekking ABC.


The mountain views in Nupri are sensational and the crossing of the Larkya La is one of the most dramatic of any pass in the Himalayas. Because much of this trek is in a region of strong Tibetan influence, most places have Tibetan names in addition to their better know Nepali monikers. Manaslu  Circuit via Larka la Pass Trek suits those who challenge with trekking in the mountain regions & we can find lots of tea houses where you can spend a good time.
