Trip Overview

Explore the mesmerizing Manaslu Round (Larke Pass) Trek with Taktok Brothers Treks and Expedition Pvt. Ltd., a hidden gem in the heart of Nepal, offering a unique and less-traveled experience compared to the well-known routes of Annapurna Base Camp and Everest Base Camp. This captivating journey leads you to the base camp of the world’s eighth-highest peak, Mount Manaslu (8,163m), known in Sanskrit as the “Mountain of The Spirit.” Immerse yourself in the enchanting blend of Hindu-Buddhist culture and lifestyle as you traverse the northern part of the Gorkha district in Gandaki Province.

The Manaslu Circuit Trek unfolds along the ancient salt trading route, following the picturesque Budi Gandaki River. Along the way, trekkers are treated to breathtaking views of over 10 peaks soaring above 6,500 meters, creating a panorama of awe-inspiring mountain beauty. The highlight of the journey is the challenging Larkya La Pass, standing tall at 5,125 meters, promising both adventure and unparalleled scenery.

Originally introduced in 1992 with a limited quota of 400 trekkers, the Manaslu Circuit remains a less-crowded trail, offering a serene alternative to the Annapurna Circuit. Nature enthusiasts may be rewarded with sightings of diverse wildlife, including the elusive snow leopard, Himalayan Marmots, Pika, Tahr, and Agali.

This trek is a gateway to an exceptional trekking experience in Western Nepal, where you’ll encounter diverse vegetation, captivating landscapes, ancient cultural and religious heritage sites, and a rich tapestry of ethnic groups. While the journey promises unparalleled beauty, it demands an excellent level of fitness to navigate the challenging mountainous terrain and higher altitudes safely.

Experience the magic of the Manaslu Circuit Trek with Taktok Brothers Treks and Expedition Pvt. Ltd. during the most favorable seasons of Autumn (October-November) and Spring (March-May), when the weather is clear and mild, enhancing the overall trekking experience. Join us on this extraordinary adventure, where every step reveals the spirit of the mountains and the cultural treasures of Nepal.
