Rupina La Pass Larkya La Pass Trekking

rupina-la-pass-larkya-la-passRupina La Pass Larkya La Pass Trekking is a challenging trek in a less touristy area within the Manaslu region of Nepal. It was officially opened to tourists in 1991 and mountaineering expeditions have had access to the area for many years. In 1950, a party led by H.W. Tillman trekked from Thonje to Bimtang and Col. Jimmy Roberts crossed the Larkya La Pass looking for an interesting mountain to climb. Manaslu (8163m) was attempted by Japanese expeditions every year from 1952 until 1956 when the first ascent was made. Having become known as the “Japanese Mountain”, much of the information about the area was available in Japanese. The Japanese continued to dominate the climbing scene of Manaslu until 1971. Rupina La Pass Larkya La Pass Trekking is best trekking in Nepal camping trekking in Manaslu region best high pass trek and culture and religion trek

Rupina La Pass Larkya La Pass Trekking including the peripatetic Hugh Swift managed to obtain the trekking permits for the region, but otherwise this trek always has been the domain of the mountaineering expedition. Rupina La Pass trekking is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating circumnavigating Manaslu (8163m), Nadi Chuli Peak 29 (7871m) Himal Chuli (7893m) and Boudha Himal (6672m). Mostly the trek offers superb Himalayan scenery, lush valleys, beautiful landscapes, wild animals and birds in predominantly Tibetan culture.
