Manaslu Trek + Larkya Peak (6249m) NEPAL
I'm planning a trip in Nepal at the end of the year, and my local guide (I already know him well) has asked if I have any other interested people to join the trip. So in the SUBW tradition, I'm putting it out there!

Please note also that the normal SUBW insurance does not cover trips outside Australia & NZ. Thus, everyone on the trip must have their own insurance suitable for the expedition. I will give more details about this once we start trip preparations.

The destination is the Manaslu region of Nepal that has only been really open to Westerners since 2002 , and Larkya Peak, only recently added to Nepals "trekking peaks" open for climbing. The term "trekking peak" is very loose, these are serious peaks with all the risks and commitment of any high mountain, so that element must be considered before deciding to join.

Preferably you will have done something like this before. Trekking in Nepal usually means that porters, yaks, dzopkyo or ponies carry your duffel bag, leaving you to enjoy trekking with just a daypack. Your food is prepared and tents set up, although your help is always welcomed. At higher altitude you may need to be able to carry loads to assist the team as a whole.

There is also an option to do the trek only without the mountain climb. My guide is very accommodating and I'm sure this option will be considered.
This trek is considered as technical one due to the high pass and mountain climb, and so is not for beginners. If you are fit and have a sense of adventure you will enjoy this trek.

The program is designed to acclimatize you gradually and not to experience high altitude sickness (AMS) .

Manaslu trekking is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating. The Tibetans of the upper Budi Gandaki, a region known as Nupri, are direct descendants of Tibetan immigrants. Their speech, dress and
customs are almost exclusively Tibetan and there is still continuous trade between Nupri and Tibet. The mountain views in Nupri are sensational and the Larkya pass (5,213m) is a dramatic Himalayan pass to cross. Trekking will be through beautiful villages including Samagaon, Samdo as well as Gandaki and Marsyangdi valley. Visits to ancient monasteries in Samagaon, Larkya La bazaar, exploring around aqua-blue green Lake Birendra and crossing the snow covered high pass Larkya La will all be highlights of this trip.
