Larkya peak climbing is a very enjoyable peak to climb in combination with the Manaslu Circuit Trek. It offers trouble-free climbing with beautiful views of Manaslu, Annapurna massif, Ganesh Himal, and beyond. Besides the mountain views, Larkya Peak climbing combines rich cultural heritage, unmatched natural beauty, and biological diversity. However, the two separate peaks, namely with Larkya, are often confusing.

At the same time, a rise approaches after a steep climb up to a supplementary summit known as Sano (Small) Larkya, an altitude of 5,807 meters. However, it requires generating a high camp close to Larkya-La (5,218m). But Sano Larkya can reach in a single day from base camp, which allows excellent acclimatization for true Larkya.

Moreover, it is an opportunity to ascend both peaks in a single excursion. On the other hand, climbing Thulo(Big), Larkya requires a long walk but a more leisurely walk on snow than Sano Larkya. Around Manaslu Trek itself is beautiful trekking and untouched by modernization since it’s a unique topographical structure for the Larkya Peak. Manaslu Circuit Trek starts from Arughat, passing through the small villages, beautiful rice fields, and lush green forest.

Thus, it represents the Lower Manaslu Circuit Trail along the Budi Gandaki River up to the Larkya La. However, it provides spectacular Himalayan Scenic, an admirable and lifetime experience.

Larkya Peak climbing combines numerous stupas and monasteries along the trail, although it represents Himalayan Buddhism. Despite its ease, excellent physical condition and previous climbing experience are required for this peak. After a successful attempt at Larkya Peak, you can return to base camp and join the Annapurna Circuit at Dharapani.
