The trek around 8156 Manaslu, the world's eight-highest mountain, was of ficially opened to tourists in 1991, but mountaineering expeditions have long had access to the area. In 1950 a party led by Timlan trekked from Thonje to Bimtang, and Colonel Jimmy Roberts crossed the Larkya La looking for an interesting mountain to climb.
These days the region draws a mixture of trekkers and mountaineers. It's not a busy trek buy any means, but it is becoming ever more popular for its range of scenery, cultural variety and its fledgling lodges. As the Annapurna Circuit becomes increasingly affected by road construction you can expect the Manalsu region to rise as challenging alternative.
Tibetan monks inhabit sacred monasteries & combined with the views of Tibetan plateau against stark white Himalayas all proves it as a truly spiritual place. As we continue further, we can visit very old monastery "Sama Gompa" at Sama Gaou, along with close up view of Mt. Manasalu, and our biggest challenge will be crossing Larkya La pass (5214m), here you are rewarded with great mountains views & then we descend from alpine to tropical areas, bursting with ferns, bamboos, pine, waterfalls & aqua-blue green lakes laced with cotton- white beaches.
