BUNA Manaslu Larkya La Pass Trek (or Around Manaslu Trekking) adventure begins from the famed ancient Gorkha Kingdom in mid-western Nepal. This wonderful adventure begins following Buri-Gandaki River upstream from the sub-tropical forest to the dry Tibetan zone, offering outstanding views of world’s 8th highest peak Mt.Manaslu 8,156m, along with the panorama of the surrounding magnificent peaks that straddle the border with Tibet. Manaslu Larkya La Pass Trek is one of the most amazing regions where few trekking companies seldom visits, but with BUNA we would like to encourage the travellers and adventurer for this unique area where one would be in the midst of the high soaring peaks with local culture untouched by modern civilizations as it was for centuries, the native of Tibetan origin migrated 100 years back, the Larkya near the pass was a busy market exchanging selling and buying goods from Tibet and Nepal more than 50 years ago, before China took over.

Manaslu Larkya La Pass Trek continues over the highest point of our journey at Larkya la. From the top of the pass, it is almost down-hill through the serene alpine forests and meadows till we come to the main trail of the Annapurna circuit, after being on the main track for a few days our journey continues towards Pokhara via another secret route seldom used by trekkers offering stunning views of the Manaslu and Annapurna range including the magnificent majestic Mt.Machhapuchare (Fish Tail) with the traditional mid hills villages.
