This ‘featured trek’ from Mountain Kingdoms is a distinctive and improved version of the classic Manaslu Circuit. Staying in teahouses, this strenuous trek is an excellent alternative to the Annapurna Circuit, with spectacular scenery from beginning to end.
The high point and a highlight of this trek is Larkya La (5,134m), a dramatic mountain pass with sensational views. This well-considered route enables you to achieve good acclimatisation with two acclimatisation days scheduled before crossing the Larkya La. The trekking is superb, the Nepali and Tibetan village are unspoiled, and the accommodation is in tea houses, and a four star hotel in Kathmandu – excellent value all round.
