Trip Overview

Embark on an extraordinary trekking adventure with Taktok Brothers to Larke Peak, nestled in the concealed beauty of the Manaslu Region in Northern Nepal. Perched at an elevation of 6,249m in the rustic Gorkha District, this trek unfolds a cultural tapestry with influences from Medieval Tibetan, Tamang, and Sherpa communities. The journey offers unparalleled views of iconic peaks, including Mt Annapurna (8,091m), Lamjung Himal (6,983), Tilicho Peak (7,134m), Manaslu (8,163m), Naike Peak(6,211m), and more.

The predominantly Buddhist population reflects the deep-rooted Tibetan-Buddhist culture, evident in ancient gompas, monasteries, art, and traditions that have withstood the test of time. Larke Peak, situated in the once restricted Manaslu Region, has opened its doors to trekkers, revealing a hidden treasure trove of natural beauty and cultural heritage. Despite modern influences, the region has preserved its diverse vegetation, enchanting landscapes, and the unique lifestyles of various ethnic groups.

Exploring Larke Peak introduces trekkers to the latest developments in the Manaslu Region, offering diversified vegetation, captivating landscapes, ancient cultural and religious heritage sites, and encounters with different ethnic communities. The trek involves navigating Larke Pass (5,420m), known for its challenging terrain. The journey demands a good level of fitness to reach higher altitudes and conquer the summit of Larke Peak (6,249m) and Larke Pass (5,420m). Throughout the trek, travelers can enjoy mesmerizing views and, with luck, spot endangered wildlife such as musk deer, red panda, black bear, gray wolf, blue sheep, and more than 33 species of mammals, all thriving despite the high altitude.
