This is one of the finest treks inside Nepal. It brings you to the northern border of Nepal with Tibet. Frequent views of Himalayan Peaks, Manaslu among others. You'll cross the Larkya-La pass before dropping into the Marshyangdi valley.
This area has recently been for trekking; never the less trekking in the region around Manaslu is a lifetime's experience. The trails are relatively empty of tourists, the culture and traditions of the people are intact, and the scenery is magnificent. This trek follows a route that has long been covered by Himalayan buffs, going north behind Himalchuli (7,893 m.) Peak 29 (7,835 m.) and Mt. Manasalu (8,118 m.) It explores villages where westerners are still a rare sight and the way of life unchanged for decades, even centuries. Starting from Gorkha (the ancestral home of the Nepalese monarchy and of the famous Nepalese Infantrymen, the trail passes through primitive villages where the people are shy, often running away from the camera wielding trekkers. From Nyak the trails continues westward towards Namru via the Village of Ghap.
