Considered to be the great option for the ones who desire the thrill of a strenuous climb, Larkya Peak Climbing is a wonderful trip through ethnic villages offering your insight upon their history and heritage.

Situated in the western part of Nepal in the Gorkha District, Larkya peak climbing is a rigorous journey to complete. Larkya Peak climbing starts with a scenic drive to Arughat Bazaar from Kathmandu. The trail follows the Soti Khola and crosses many small villages like Jagat, Deng, Namrung, Samagaon, and Samdo on the way. We will also cross many green lush forests with the views of high mountains on our way. The local villages on the way offer us to explore their culture and customs, monasteries, prayer flags, the prayer wheel, and prayer walls. On summiting the Larkya peak (6249 m) the magnificent views of the high mountains renders the trek to be fascinating and unforgettable.

The trail, being difficult and challenging, one needs the good level of fitness with prior mountaineering experience. The peak climbing journey takes you through villages with massive Buddhist faith and Tibetan-influenced culture to the top of a magnificent peak in the Manaslu region all the while never failing to amaze you with the rich bio-diversity in the route along the trek.
