About Manaslu Circuit and Larke Peak Climbing
Manaslu Circuit and Larke Peak Climbing is one of the most thrilling trips in Nepal. This is a less crowded trek that offers epic adventures.
This trip will take you to remote villages and the natural beauty of Nepal. You will witness lush forests, rivers, and waterfalls beside the snowcapped mountains. You'll also discover the preserved areas of the trip, which are rare, including plants and places.
Larke Peak is a rewarding peak to climb in combination with the Manaslu Circuit Trek. It is a relatively easy climb with spectacular views of Manaslu, the Annapurnas, Ganesh Himal, and beyond. However, there is sometimes confusion about which peak it is, and groups are often lead up a steep line to a subsidiary peak known as Sano (small) Larke (5,807m).
The base camp is close to the 5,135 m of Larke La pass. From this base camp, Sano Larke Peak can be climbed in a single day. However, to climb Thulo (big) Larke (6,249 m), a high camp is required. This ultimate Larke Peak is a long but easy climb on snow slopes that are slightly less steep than Sano Larke Peak. The best option for climbers is to make a high camp and then summit the real Larke Peak.
Larke Peak is a rarely climbed peak in Nepal that has been open for climbers since 2002. Larke Peak has been graded as an "A" category climbing peak in Nepal by the Nepal Mountaineering Association. Beside magical mountain views, Larke Peak climbing offers a unique combination of culturally rich heritages, unrivaled natural beauty.
