Manaslu is the newest trekking trial in Nepal, which got initiation in 1991. Despite, of untouched beauty in the region, the trek in the region is still considered to be challenging. Unlike other trekking trials in Nepal, the trial has limited resources facilitating the trekkers in the region. Explore Himalaya is continuously playing a significant role to upgrade the tourists facilities in the region. 14 Danish trekkers decided to accept the challenge and explore around the untouched beauty in the region with Explore Himalaya.
Explore Himalaya made the best possible arrangements for these trekkers. Since, the group size was big enough for the camping trek Explore Himalaya chose the even. The trek started on the perfect day of the perfect season. It was October 12; the day the team reached to Arughat Baazar. The exciting trek had a day rest at Sama on 2oth. On 22nd the team were at Larkya Phedi crossing the Larkya La Pass. The Larkya La is one of the most dramatic pass crossings in the Himalaya.
