Manaslu Rupina La Trek - Camping Trekking with High Passes
The combined Rupina la and Manaslu Larke pass trek route is becoming popular as a new trekking destination in the Manaslu region, away from the trekkers' crowds. This Manaslu Rupina La Trek is a magnificent fully camping trekking itinerary with spectacular views of the Ganesh Himal, Boudha, Rani, Gorkha, Manaslu, and Annapurna ranges. No doubt a fantastic Himalayan profile. Walking through authentic ethnic villages northward, delightful valleys and alpine meadows open up with picturesque Tibetan-style villages. The geological variation impacts the cultural aspects as you step up every day.
Rupinala Pass Trekking in Manaslu
We take a private bus drive from Kathmandu to Barpark village, a historical village where Nepal's epicenter was the 25 April 2015 earthquake. Great to see the rebuilding activities and everyday life there during your visit. We start our Manaslu Rupina la trek by walking through unspoiled countryside. We head towards Rupinala (4670m) pass, where we are lost in the wilderness for several days before adjoining Budigandaki valley. As we gain height, ultimately valley opens up to expose wonderful cluster villages. Furthermore, the mountain pastures beneath the Manaslu's extensive North Face. Finally, the trail reaches Samagaon, the prime and significant village in the Manaslu region.
After proper acclimatization, we head to Larke Pass (5160 m), a classic and rugged pass conjoining the Buri Gandaki with the Marsyangdi valley. Finally, we head down the valley of the Annapurna circuit trail and drive to Besisahar to conclude the Himalayan journey of Manaslu Rupina la and Larke pass trek.
