Description

This climb will test your endurance and determination and give you a true sense of achievement. The rewards are numerous. Firstly, a sigh of relief as you stand and stare at some of the most magical scenery on earth. Secondly, you will feel euphoric and be better equipped to face challenges in your life. Finally, you can shout out, “I did it.”

Larke Peak (6219m) is in the Manaslu region of Nepal and has only recently been opened to climbers, that will ensure you have a less crowded and peaceful time while wandering through this amazing natural wonderland. 

Larke Peak Climbing (6219m) is home to Tamang and Sherpa, Tibetan Buddhists, and some of the calmest and peaceful people on earth. These are the DalaiLama’s people.  The Manaslu region is also home to the endangered snow leopard, red panda, Himalayan Black Bear, grey wolf, monkeys, musk deer, blue sheep, and of course the ever-present Yaks that roam the grazing lands at high altitudes. This is also where Nepal’s beautiful rhododendron tree grows and blossoms in spring in white, pink, and red flowers. The rhododendron is Nepal’s native emblem and stands out in stark contrast to the juniper, cedar and bamboo forests. There are believed to be 33 species of mammals, 110 species, three species of reptiles, and between 1500-2000 species of flowering plants.

The trek begins at Soti Khola and gradually heads higher, initially to Larke La Pass (5106m) and then on to your goal – Larke Peak (6219m). At nearly every stage of this trek, you will be stunned by the soaring snow-capped peaks and by the tranquil Tibetan villages as you head closer and closer to the Tibetan border. 

Mount Mania are not new to the trekking and climbing business, having been around for more than 15 years, during which time their reputation has made them one of the most reliable and reputable companies in Nepal. Mount Mania put your safety first and manage every aspect of your journey – from airport pickup to departure.
