Manaslu region provides a combination of rich cultural heritage, breathtaking beauty and biological diversity. Larkya Peak Climbing starts with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Arughat Bazar. The path parallels the Soti Khola and along the way passes several small villages such as Jagat, Deng, Namrung, Sama gaon and Samdo. We're going to pass several green lush forests and high mountain views on our way too. Along the road, you can see the rich culture and heritage of Tamang, Gurungs, Magar, Sherpa and monasteries filled with prayer flags, prayer wheels and walls of prayer. Larkya Peak Climbing is a wonderful trip through ethnic villages offering your insight into their past and traditions. Besides, the breathtaking views of the high mountains on the top of the Larkya hill also make the trek unforgettable. The path is difficult and demanding therefore, Larkya Peak Climbing is considered to be the best choice for those who crave the thrill of a strenuous climb.
