LARKYA PEAK CLIMBING

The Larkya Peak lies in the great Manaslu Himalayan ranges in the district of Gorkha, Nepal. Permits to ascend this peak have only been issued since 2002 by Nepal Mountaineering Association. The summit of this peak offers incomparable views of many snow giants, including the Manaslu, Himlung, Ganesha and Annapurna peaks.

This trekking/climbing programme has been designed to allow enough time for acclimatization and climbing preparation. The trek starts in Arughat and ends in Besisahar. In between the trail passes through beautiful Tibetan hamlets and monasteries whose beliefs in Buddhism decorates the already beautiful settlements with prayer flags, prayer wheels and prayer walls.
