Can there be any greater feeling than standing at the top of a mountain?
This climb will test your endurance and determination and give you a true sense of achievement. The rewards are numerous. Firstly, a sigh of relief as you stand and stare at some of the most magical scenery on earth. Secondly, you will feel euphoric and be better equipped to face challenges in your life. Finally, you can shout out, “I did it.”
Larke Peak (6219m) is in the Manaslu region of Nepal and has only recently been opened to climbers, that will ensure you have a less crowded and peaceful time while wandering through this amazing natural wonderland.
Larke Peak Climbing (6219m) is home to Tamang and Sherpa, Tibetan Buddhists, and some of the calmest and peaceful people on earth. These are the Dalai Lama’s people. The Manaslu region is also home to the endangered snow leopard, red panda, Himalayan Black Bear, grey wolf, monkeys, musk deer, blue sheep, and of course the ever-present Yaks that roam the grazing lands at high altitudes. This is also where Nepal’s beautiful rhododendron tree grows and blossoms in spring in white, pink, and red flowers. The rhododendron is Nepal’s native emblem and stands out in stark contrast to the juniper, cedar and bamboo forests. There are believed to be 33 species of mammals, 110 species, three species of reptiles, and between 1500-2000 species of flowering plants.
The trek begins at Soti Khola and gradually heads higher, initially to Larke La Pass (5135m) and then on to your goal – Larke Peak (6219m). At nearly every stage of this trek, you will be stunned by the soaring snow-capped peaks and by the tranquil Tibetan villages as you head closer and closer to the Tibetan border.

You will be carrying all of your gear and share some of the cluster gear. Keeping your pack light is important, so choose light-weight clothing and equipment. Be sure to have a range of clothing suitable for all conditions. Sudden change of weather may require layering of clothing. Three layers will meet your needs. Avoid cotton or fabrics that do not maintain heat when cold. Comfortable durable wool (or proven fabrics) that breathe and expel sweat lends itself to an additional pleasant experience!'

"While you're needed to bring everything on this list, there are suitable variations that are also suitable. Many of these items can be purchased in Kathmandu from stores that cater to mountain trekking.
It is obligatory to possess smart travel insurance or emergency evacuation insurance that covers evacuation from high altitudes. It is advisable that you have cancellation insurance - just in case of an accident or for some reason, due to unforeseen circumstances, the trip is canceled.
For your personal safety and success, we recommend physical activities like running, swimming and some smaller climbs to lower peaks which incorporate climbs that involve the use of crampons. Be prepared for extreme exposure and steep drop-offs and be capable of carrying around 30lbs/15 kilos. If possible, get some experience in technical rock and mountaineering climbing to prepare for your trek and climb to Island Peak. Be familiar with using other climbing equipment, such as jumar ascenders, crampons, and ropes.
Trekking at altitude requires a lot of energy. We recommend you bring your own healthy snack foods to snack on along the trek.
In Kathmandu, you will stay at deluxe hotels and while on the trek your accommodation is in native lodges/guesthouses. At base camp your accommodation is in tented camps. All accommodation is based on a twin share basis.
In case of any high hypoxia problems, it is recommended as a primary precaution to return to a lower altitude. If the problem persists you will need to be evacuated if necessary by helicopter rescue and jeep.
During the climb, your guide will have access to current weather conditions.
