Similarly, at some point like Larkya La Pass (5160m), there is a step down which makes a little harder to pass due to the icy path.

In that case, using crampon on boots to pass the icy path to reach Bimthang would be recommended. As you know, Larkya La Pass is the highest point as well as the longest day in Manaslu Circuit Trek. If you complete this day, then another path is quite easy to trek down around the Annapurna Region.
