Introduction: Manaslu Circuit with Larke La Pass

The Manaslu Circuit with Larke La pass is a mesmerizing journey through the world’s eighth-highest peak, Manaslu. Manaslu, which means “The spirit mountain” in Sanskrit, is a pristine mountain peak. It grabs the attention of fellow visitors due to its commanding stature and challenging terrain. The Manaslu Circuit with Larke Pass is a 15-day trip offered by Holiday Planner Nepal takes visitors to the Manaslu region, situated in the western part of Nepal within the lap of the Himalayan region. As trekkers leave the bustling city of Kathmandu, the trek welcomes high-altitude terrains, rugged trails, and a remote atmosphere. Manaslu Circuit trek enables trekkers to pass through charming villages, lush alpine, and rhododendron forests.

Manaslu Circuit Trekking is a tough yet adventurous journey. It offers an opportunity to stay close to gigantic mountain peaks like Manaslu, the world’s eighth-highest peak. Other surrounding peaks in the Manaslu region are Baudha Himal (6,672 m / 21,889 ft)Ganesh Himal (7,422 m/24,350 ft), Annapurna II (7,937 m / 26,040 ft), Kang Guru (6,981 m /22,904 ft)Larkya Peak (6416 m / 21,050 ft), Himlung Himal (7,126 m / 23,379 ft), and many more. 

Similarly, the Manaslu region and Larke Pass are known to be under the Manaslu Conservation Area. The conservation area protects various flora and fauna, grey wolves, Himalayan gorals, Black-lipped pikas, Woolly hares, and Asian black bears. Many endangered animals, like snow leopards and red pandas, are also conserved here.

On the other hand, visitors can encounter protected birds known as the Impeyan Pheasant, Crimson Horned Pheasant, and other species. The Manaslu Conservation Area is also a widely favored bird and butterfly-watching destination.

Another significant trip highlight is the Larke La pass (5,106 m/16,752 feet), one of the world’s longest passes in the Manaslu region. It is considered a challenging pass; however, many spectacular features can be seen from the top of the Larke Pass, with views of the Manaslu range filled with snow-capped mountains. Trekkers can also see the Annapurna range in the south, so the Larke la pass promises a transition from the Manaslu region to the Annapurna region.

How does Manaslu circuit with Larke pass start and end?

Manaslu circuit with Larke pass Trekking route starts from the bustling city of Kathmandu and moves towards Maccha Khola through a scenic drive. Machha Khola is a small settlement where the roads are normal but bumpy in some sections. Visitors can pass through waterfalls and drive along the Budi Gandaki River. Various prominent villages like Khursanibari and Labu Besi can also aid the experience.

After Maccha Khola, the trek moves towards Jagat, a checking point in the journey. All the documents and permits are thoroughly checked before entering the Manaslu conservation area. After Jagat, the prominent destination in the Manaslu circuit with the Larke Pass Itinerary is Dyang. Dyang is also considered a windy region valley as wind velocity is higher. After Dyang, the trek moves towards Ghap. In this section, visitors will cross a suspension bridge to see Mani walls and prayer flags, which gives an idea of Buddhist settlements.

After exploring Ghap, the journey continues to Lho-Gaon. Lho is a famous destination where potato cultivation and maize fields can be seen. The first view of Manaslu is seen from here. Additionally, visitors can visit Lho Monastery to get insights into the Buddhist culture of the region. Afterward, we moved towards Samagoan, a comparatively bigger village than Lho-Gaon.

Samagaon is famous for its monastery and Birendra Lake. This place is also the gateway to Manaslu Base Camp. Visitors here are welcomed by dance and cultural events. Similarly, after Samagaon moves towards Samdo, the roads are mostly flat and comfortable. The villagers also go for Yarshagumba, which is noted as the last village before crossing Larke Pass.

After Samdo, the next destination is Dharmashala, where the only possible accommodation is a tent. This place is a good spot for photography. It is marked by super cold weather. After camping in Dharmasala, we cross the Larke la. The path is steep, and trekkers must walk carefully on the snow trails. It is the most challenging section of the whole journey. Upon reaching the top, the views are mesmerizing, like standing in the middle of base camp.

As the Larke pass is crossed, move downhill towards Bhimthang to get a good view of the North of Manaslu, Ponkar Himal, Annapurna III, and Ponkar Lake. This is a warm and cozy place to relax and sleep. After Bhimthang, head downward towards Gho. The trail is decent, with a walk into the rhododendron forest and along the Marshyangdi River. Trekkers can see the last view of Manaslu from here.

After the Gho trek, visitors move towards the Dharapani village. Dharapani is an ending point of the Manaslu Conservation Area and the way to the Annapurna circuit. Visitors can also visit the monastery here as the exploration of Dharapani drives back towards Kathmandu via Besisahar Lamjung. This marks the end of the 15-day Manaslu Circuit Larke La Pass Trekking.

What is the best time or season for Manaslu circuit and Larke Pass?

Nepal mainly faces four seasons in a year: Spring, Autumn, Summer, and Winter. During these seasons, in spring and autumn, trekkers can have the best trekking experience of the Manaslu circuit.

Spring, from March to May, is one of the best seasons to embark on the Manaslu short-circuit trek. During spring, the weather is usually pleasant, and clear skies provide beautiful views of the mountains. The daytime temperatures are pleasant, while the nights are cool and dry. The trails are also dry, making it more accessible to walk. The weather favors a comfortable walk, making it an ideal condition for trekking.

Similarly, Autumn lasts from September to November in Nepal. This is another recommended season for the Manaslu circuit with the Larke pass map. The sky is colorful, and the views are breathtaking. The trails are somewhat busy due to a large number of trekkers. This means the season has the highest number of trekkers going on the trip. Morning temperatures are good, although the days are often comfortable and suitable for trekking.  

During the summer/ monsoon, trekking in the region is not recommended. The paths are slippery, which causes difficulty in moving up the steep trails. Similarly, the sky is cloudy, obstructing the mountain views and landscapes, which should be the trip's main highlight.

In winter, trekking in the Manaslu Area is not suitable. The region becomes extremely cold, causing difficulty. There are also fewer settlements in high altitudes as they descend due to extreme weather. This season is only recommended for hardcore trekkers who want to experience an adrenaline rush. Trekking in the Winter season can be made possible with Holiday Tours Nepal, but prior preparation and logistics need to be handled.

How to prepare for Larke Pass and Manaslu Circuit?

Holiday planner Nepal suggests fellow trekkers build their fitness level by engaging in cardiovascular exercises to build endurance. This must be done at least one month before the trek. Activities like running, jogging, walking for at least 4-5 hours, cycling, and swimming can help build endurance. Other exercises to build leg muscles, like squats, lunges, and calf raises, can also help with trekking quickly.

Similarly, get proper knowledge of the region, the trail, accommodation place, food, electricity, bathroom facilities, weather, and climate. This research can help compensate for any unusual thing during the trip; once visitors know all these things, familiarity with the region increases, ultimately building the mentality.
