★ Ultimate challenging trek not heard often
★ More than perfect trek for the nature lovers
★ Stunning view of eighth thousand Manaslu
Trekking in Nepal is always challenging because it takes you uphill and downhill; unlike other countries that do not have 5000 m plus trekking trail that do not have 7000 m and 8000 m peaks, Manaslu Larkya Pass Trek is opposite the trekking trail of these countries. Looking at the remote and rough trekking trail traversing the Manaslu Region, you can say that the Manaslu Larkya Pass Trek is for both adventurous and nature lovers who want extraordinary beauty amid the remotest region of Nepal and the world. However, where there are such beauties, there are also challenges: the Larkya La Pass and the trekking trail that takes you to the steep moraines out of your expectation. Besides these highlights and challenges, there is another highlight of the Manaslu Larkya La Pass Trekking: the Larkya Glacier.
