How we start Manaslu Base Camp trekking?
We start our Manaslu Base Camp Trekking after your arrival at Kathmandu followed by cultural sightseeing around world heritage sites. Initially, we take a long drive from Kathmandu to the town of Arughat passing through bamboo forests and Gurung villages for about 6 hours. After arrival at Arughat, which is also the starting point of our Manaslu trekking activity, we cross suspension bridges, make our way through beautiful forests, Gurung villages and arrive at Maccha Khola.
Further, we make our way through several ascends, descends, natural and cultural exploration while passing through Budhi Gandaki river, ridges, villages, of Jagat, Deng, Namrung, Samagaon and hike to the nearby old monastery named Pung Glen Gompa. For proper acclimatization, we take a day rest at Sama Gaun. After trekking some days we get to the highest point of the trek, Larke La Pass.
The view from the Larkya La is superb where we will see Himal Chuli, Manaslu, Cheo Himal, and Himlung Himal mountains. In this way, we discover the diversity in culture and topography, and finally, descend towards Jho, Jagat and Bhulbhule to reach Besisahar from where we drive back to Kathmandu.
Our Manaslu Base Camp Trekking is a long trekking that lasts more than 2 weeks so it is better to be in a good shape with proper fitness level.
