A fantastic Manaslu to Tilicho trek provide unique itinerary links the trek around Manaslu with a traverse of the northern Annapurna range to Jomsom and explore the "Great Barrier". You ascend to the foot of the North Face of Manaslu and crossing two remote passes; the Larkya pass (5,135m/16,847ft), is one of Nepal's best-kept secrets and the Tilicho Lake & Meso Kanto La (5,300m/17,388ft). You are rewarded with a stunning panorama and finest aspects of spectacular massifs.Your Manaslu to Tilicho trek begin in the ancient town of Kathmandu; from where you will board a bus to Arughat and follows the meandering Buri Gandaki River northwards to the village of Deng. Although quite board initially, the valley soon narrows down and you soon find that you are clambering high above the river on fantastic paths which cling precariously to the hillsides. This part of Nepal sees only a handful of trekkers each year and you can expect the trails to be less crowded. As you progress further northwards the valley opens up to reveal delightful alpine meadows and small Tibetan villages that are found in a cluster beneath sweeping North Face of Manaslu. You continue through Jagat, Gap Pu and Sho, typical Tibetan villages with rows of the prayer wheels and Mani stones. The trail eventually reaches Samagaon, the largest and most important village of this region. This is a key staging post for expedition teams attempting to climb Manaslu and the mountain from here is outstanding.

 

From the Samagaon you head west & cross the Larkya La (5,135m/16,847ft), a classic pass linking the Buri Gandaki with the Marsyangdi Valley, with farm lands forming a part of the old trading route between Manang and Tibet. From the top of this pass you are rewarded with a stunning panorama looking towards Himlung Himal (7,126m/23,379ft), Manaslu & the Annapurna peaks, with the peaks of Ganesh Himal (7,406m/24,298ft) rounding off the east. The descent passes through the alpine meadows of Bimtang to join the renowned Annapurna Circuit at Thonje. Tillman first surveyed this region in 1950 on his reconnaissance of Annapurna.  After following the traditional Annapurna Circuit route for three days to Manang the trek continues to the remote Tilicho Lake & Meso Kanto La (5,300m/17,388ft) sometimes called the Tilicho pass, which provides a direct route to the Kali Gandaki valley. Tilicho Lake lies below the 'Great Barrier' and it was this huge wall of snow and ices that thwarted Herzog's initial approach to Annapurna in 1950. This fabled region has only just been opened up to trekking groups and yours will be one of the first groups to visit this area. Tremendous views of Dhaulagiri (8,167m/26,795ft) can be seen as the trail descends down to Jomsom, where an exciting mountain flight and transports you back to Kathmandu.
