Trip Introduction;
Larkya Peak
is one of the peaks that form Manaslu Himalayan range. The peak is situated in western part of Nepal in Gorkha district. Larkya peak is one of the least climbed peaks in Nepal’s trekking peaks. As a matter of fact, climbing Larkya peak provides a life time experience as the climb to the summit is considered difficult and challenging. Hence, good physical condition and previous experience of peak climbing is needed for achieving the summit of Larkya Peak. Larkya Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks is truly an excellent opportunity for adventure seeking climbers to gain an achievement of a life time experience.

Larkya Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks starts at Kathmandu – capital city of Nepal. After spending a full day sightseeing around Kathmandu, we will drive along the scenic highway to arrive at Soti Khola – the starting point of the trek. From Soti Khola we begin our trek following the trail that passes through several traditional villages of Jagat, Deng, Namrung, Samagaon, and Samdo. After spending a good acclimatization day, we head towards the base camp and ascend higher to the high camp. During the trek, we will have great views of Himalayan ranges including Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan Ranges, Langtang Himal Range, Himalchuli, Boudha Himal, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu and other surrounding high peaks in the region.

As soon as we set up our high camp, our Sherpa crew will check all the climbing gears and our health conditions. Following the footsteps and guidance of our experienced climbing experts, we will overcome several technical sections and head towards the summit of Larkya Peak. Once at the top, we are rewarded with magnificent views of Annapurna Himal Range, Langtang Himal Range, Himalchuli, Boudha Himal, Ganesh Himal, Mt Manaslu (8th highest mountain in the world) and other numerous snow capped peaks in the region. After spending a short quality at the summit, we will descend following the trail that goes through the villages Bhimtang and Dharapani to finally arrive at Syange. Our memorable experience of Larkya Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks ends with a scenic drive from Syange back to Kathmandu.

Reviews

Larkey Peak with NGT

We have recently completed our incredible Larkey Peak Climbing. The whole trekking was very inspiring as we passed though small villages with warm and friendly locals. Many thanks to the whole team of Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions for organizing very safe and sound trekking. Our guide was Dendi Sherpa , he always made right decisions for trekking and peak climbing, Without his guidance we believe that it wouldn’t be impossible for us to reach the Larkey Peak summit.

We enjoyed great views of Annapurna ,Dhaulagiri, Langtang, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and other fascinating high peaks. We have lot of pictures and memories from the peak summit. We recommend this company for those wanting to climb peaks or do trekking in Nepal. Many thanks to Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for allowing us to reach the summit for an experience of a lifetime. We will be back to do some more peak climbing with NGTs in future.

Best Regards,

Atila & Group – Hungary
