Jimmy Roberts crossed Larkya La looking for an interesting mountain to climb. A few trekkers, including peripatetic Hugh Swift, managed to obtain the trekking permit for the region, but otherwise this trek always has been the domain of the mountaineering expeditions. The journey around these legendary mountains is enjoyable and tough.

Beginning from Gorkha Budi Gandaki Valley River, crossing the snow bound Larkya La pass (5213m). We crossed Snow-covered peaks over 6500m. The descent, once off the snow, takes us through alpine then tropical areas, bursting with ferns, bamboo, pine trees, waterfalls and aqua-blue green lakes laced with cotton-white beaches. Finally, Manaslu will disappear as we descend to Beshishar (832m.) from where we will drive back to Kathmandu.
