Manaslu Circuit Trekking, the trek is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. The Tibetans of the upper Budi Gandaki, a region known as Nupri (“the western mountains”), are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress, and customs are almost exclusively Tibetan. There is still continuous trade between Nupri and Tibet; Chinese cigarettes, for example, are found more frequently than Nepalese cigarettes. The mountain views in Nupri are sensational, and the Larkya La is one of the most dramatic.
Though the Larkya La is not a difficult pass, the trek is harder than most in Nepal. In many places the walls of the Buri Gandaki Valley are perpendicular, so you cannot walk along the bottom of the valley. There is a huge amount of wasted climbing involved during the first part of the trek as you climb up and down over ridges or onto shelves to bypass cliffs. The trail is rough and steep and it often literally hangs on a bluff high above the river. Don’t read any further if you have the slightest tendency towards acrophobia. The trek is remote and has no rescue facilities or opportunities to bail out if you are tired. There is only one facility that might conceivably be called a trekkers’ hotel, and as late as AS 1992 there was not a single English signboard between Arughat and TiljeHimalayan pass crossings.
Manaslu CircuitTrek was officially opened to tourists in 1991, but mountaineering expeditions have long had access to the area. In 1950 a party led by H W Tilman trekked from Thonje to Bimtang and Colonel Jimmy Roberts crossed the Larkya La looking for an interesting mountain to climb. Manaslu (8156 meters) was attempted by Japanese expeditions every year from 1952 until 1956 when the first ascent was made. Having become known as a “Japanese mountain”, much of the information about the area was available only in Japanese. The Japanese continued to dominate the climbing scene on Manaslu until 1971.
