“Manaslu Larkya La Pass Trekking – Excursion of an abode of the world’s 8th tallest mountain Mt. Manaslu”

Manaslu Larkya la Pass Trekking in Nepal is one of the gorgeous but challenging walking journey. It encompasses vast area of Gorkha and Lamjung district of Nepal. It is probably the only trekking route where trekkers need to take permits of two trekking areas (Annapurna & Manaslu). You can’t do the Manaslu Trekking solo and without trekking guide.

Trekkers start the journey from Kathmandu by hopping into the jeep or bus towards Soti Khola using Dhadingbeshi Aarughat road. The road trip is fun filled too. The rural Nepal road trip is very fascinating experience to gather. In every hours the villages’ style, vegetation style and landscape changes.

Walking starts either from Machhakhola or Soti Khola on the bank of Budi Gandaki River. The trail has numerous suspension bridges over the Gandaki River. Crossing of rivers on suspension bridges is also unique experience for foreigners. Suspension bridges are the unique feature of every Nepalese hilly areas. Gigantic waterfalls and green lush forest hills are the usual sight. Terraced farmlands and meeting with the locals heighten the level of information and memory on the trail.

Samagaon Acclimatization

The trekking route of Manaslu was opened in 1992. Therefore, it is relatively young trekking trail. This doesn’t mean that it is not popular. It is very famous because of abundance of natural wonders and mountain vistas.

Samagon is the famous village on this trail and it is the biggest as well. There are numerous monasteries and side trip destinations. Trekkers can explore the lakes as well. However, lake hiking requires the whole day of walking. It is for highly fit individuals. Strolling around the hills, villages and monasteries helps trekkers to get adjusted with the altitude.

How to obtain visa to travel to Nepal?

You can obtain “VISA” to Nepal through embassy or other diplomatic mission to your country. You can also obtain visa at entry points to Nepal or at the airport in the immigration for merely $40. The extension of visa requires an additional payment of $30. Do not forget to carry some passport size photos with you.

I want to go on a trek. What is the best time and place for it?

Everything you want to do is time and cost specific. Besides, your experience in trekking will also matter. There is wide range of options in Nepal if you want to explore. If you arrive in proper season, that is, between September to November (Autumn Season) and March to May (Spring Season), you might just experience something that you will be able to cherish for the lifetime. The shortest of trek can be Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, Langtang Helambu Trek or the Annapurna Circuit. The Everest trek and the full Annapurna sanctuary Trek can be ideal if you have a little more time. Finally, if you are looking for something that’s longer and more challenging, you’re looking at Kanchanjunga or Makalu area Trek.

What are the best trekking routes?

Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Basecamp, Everest Basecamp, Dhaulagiri Circuit, Manaslu Circuit and Kanchanjunga are the most popular trekking routes in Nepal.

Should I trek with an agency or should I trek alone?

Trekking alone can be a good experience if you are familiar with the terrain and have quite a few experiences in the area. Nobody can drag you down, and you can move at your own pace savoring the pleasant sceneries around to you. However, if it is your first experience or so, you might want to travel in group or with an agency. Should situations like medical emergencies, isolation due to disasters, etc. occur, having a group can be a matter of relief. If you have no group and you’re all by yourselves, you can hire a porter or a guide.

Is communication to our home country possible while on a trek or climb?

Nepal’s communication facilities are getting day by day, and most portions of trekking routes have mobile phone coverage. In case of a climb, VHF or satellite phones are available at the base camp. In both cases, weather can play an important role in communication.
