DETAIL ITENIRARY

Our tour leader will be at the airport with our company’s logo. Once you will met the leader you will be warmly welcomed and will be transferred via chartered vehicle to the hotel in Kathmandu which will require approx. half an hour’s drive through roads and intricate streets. And after check-in at the hotel and refreshing, you will be briefed regarding your hotel, its surrounding areas and your wonderful tour itself.

Today after breakfast, we shall commence our sightseeing at two must see UNESCO World Heritage Sites namely BoudhaNath Stupa and PashupatiNath Temple where each has the history of Kathmandu Valley’s establishment. Kathmandu, also known as ‘The City of Temples’, is vibrant and has many histories and mythologies. BouddhaNath Stupa:BouddhaNath Stupa is the largest stupa ever built in Nepal. The stupa is located in the north-east outskirt of Kathmandu and is a drive of approx.20 minutes north-eastwards from Kathmandu Durbar Square. An old trading route between British-India and China-Tibet used to pass through this area so it became popular with Tibetans, for some of the Tibetan businessmen settled here for their business prosperity. The main stupa is right in the middle and is surrounded by souvenir shops, restaurants, Tibetan painting schools and monasteries. PashupatiNath Temple: Located in the eastern part of Kathmandu and on the west bank of holy Bagmati River, PashupatiNath Stupa is approx. drive of 10 minutes southwards from BouddhaNath Stupa. The temple belongs to Lord Shiva and is considered as the holiest Hindu’s temple of whose river bank sees cremations. Hindus only are allowed into the main temple complex whereas Non-Hindus are allowed to view the temple from the eastern bank of Bagmati River.                                                                   
Today early in the morning we set off  for soti khola. During the drive, we enjoy views of the Nepalese countryside along with the mountain sceneries. We will be driving on a paved road from Kathmandu to Dhading Besi (district headquater of Dhading) but drive from Dhading besi to Soti khola will be rough road.               
Today, we trek through the beautiful Sal forests, then climb onto a ridge above huge rapids on the Budhi Gandaki. We then reach Khursane upon which the rocky trail weaves its way up and down, past two tropical waterfalls on a steep, rocky trail clinging to the side of a cliff. It eventually makes its way down and past a few rice terraces, then up and around to the Gurung village of Labubesi. We further climb behind a rocky outcrop, where the valley opens up and the Budhi Gandaki meanders among wide gravel bars. Dropping to the sandy river bed, we walk along rounded stones before climbing over a side ridge. We head down again to the river and cross another suspension bridge to reach Machha Khola village.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
After Walking a few more ascends and descends we come across a small Hotspring in Tatopani. From the hot spring, we climb over another ridge, then cross the Budhi Gandaki on a suspension bridge. At this juncture, we climb on a wide, well-crafted staircase, then across a landslide and over a ridge to Dobhan. Upon crossing a suspension bridge over the Yaru Khola, we climb the stone stairs and then drop to the river and again climb more stone stairs to Tharo Bharyang. Crossing the west bank of the Budhi Gandaki, we climb over a ridge, trek along the river and then climb towards the village of Jagat.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
At the begin today’s trek by climbing over a rocky ridge to Salleri, and then descend to Sirdibas. The valley widens a bit as the trail continues up to Ghatta Khola. We further continue walking upstream to a long suspension bridge in Philim, a large Gurung village. The trail turns north just above the lowest house in the village and stays on a fairly level trail as it crosses millet fields to Ekle Bhatti. The route now enters a steep, uninhabited gorge. At this point, we descend to the grassy land slopes, cross the Budhi Gandaki, then trek along the west bank for a while, then cross to the east bank and then back again. As we continue through the trail the valley widens and we pass through bamboo forests to the Deng Khola.  Upon crossing the Khola, we reach the tiny village of Deng.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
After a sort  walk beyond Deng, we cross the Budhi Gandaki and climb to Rana at 1910m. From the bridge, we climb a bit to join a trail from Bhi, then head west up the Budhi Gandaki valley. The trail also passes through forests and mani where we turn towards a corner that contours to Ghap. Even though there is another route, we take the route through Prok village. Prok village has a viewpoint for a beautiful sight of Siringi Himal. We further cross the Budi Gandaki several times today and come across several gompas en route. The trail follows the river upstream through a dense forest. After crossing the river at an impressive spot where it thunders down a narrow gorge, the forest becomes less dense and the trail is fine again. The pleasant walk continues and after a last steep climb we reach Namrung.                                                                                                                   
Namrung village is Beautiful view point for Siring and Ganesh Himal and from the village one can also see Mt. Himal Chuli in the south. We climb steadily and pass through forests and reach Lihi, a fine village with many chortens and barley terraces. The trail drops and crosses the side valley of Simnang Himal with Ganesh Himal always close by and we will  reach Lho (around lunch time). After lunch we will visit famous Ribung Gompa it take Approx 35 min to reach there.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
After Lho Village we are going to cross  Shyala village we will be surrounded by high mountains like Himal Chuli and Peak 29 (Ngadi Chuli) to the left, Manaslu and large glaciers straight ahead, and other snow summits to the right, and at the far end stands Ganesh Himal. Today’s journey ends in Samagaon.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Included accommodation: Tea House                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Included meal: No

The trail to the left leads to the Manaslu Base camp. The Larkya la Trail passes several mani walls as the valley begins to widen. It is an easy trail on a shelf above the river passing the juniper and birch forests of Kermo Kharka. We drop off the shelf, cross the Budhi Gandaki on a wooden bridge and climb steeply then reach Samdo.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
We will hike up to Samdo –Ri (4400m), it might takes approx 4.5hrs. This hike will take us to one of excellent views of Mt. Manaslu along with other Himalayan ranges including Simrang, Hiunchuli, Ngadi, Larkye Peak, Cheo and possibly Kang Guru behind the pass. Also during hike we may also see beautiful mountain birds call, tibetain snow cock.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Today  we continue our walk down the edge, cross the wooden bridge over Budi Gandaki and begin walking upward. Upon crossing two streams and witnessing the Larkya Glacier we go around the valley of the Salka Khola and climb up again to the stone guest house (4450 m), which is not a lodge but a kind of shelter called Dharmshala, also known as Larke Phedi. The short walk today also leaves plenty of time for acclimatization and relaxing in the afternoon.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
We will shortly  climb and we reach a valley on the north side of the Larkya Glaciers from where we can enjoy great views of Cho Danda and Larkya Peak. we walk across moraines of the glacier, making a gradual ascent which becomes steeper only in the last section of the pass. From the pass, there are outstanding views of Himlung Himal, Cheo Himal, Kangguru and the huge Annapurna II. It is a longer day than usual to Bimtang, but to walk into these low pastures with the evening mist coming in with Mt. Manaslu looming close by is an overwhelming experience.

We walk through rhododendron forest and follow a trail through a narrow valley until we reach the highest cultivated land of the valley at Karche, 2785 meters and cross Gho village then arrived Tilje.
