Day 04Trek to Jagat (1440m), 5-6 hoursThe narrow trail makes some minor ups and downs and eventually crosses the Thado Khola and reaching Khorlabesi. After a few more ascends and descends we come across a small Hotspring in Tatopani. From the hot spring, we climb over another ridge, then cross the Budhi Gandaki on a suspension bridge. At this place, we climb on a wide, well-crafted staircase, then across a landslide and over a ridge to Dobhan. Upon crossing a suspension bridge over the Yaru Khola, we climb the stone stairs and then drop to the river and again climb more stone stairs to Thado Bharyang. Crossing the west bank of the Budhi Gandaki, we climb over a ridge, trek along the river where very unique bridge which is attached to the hill which we need to cross and then climb towards the village of Jagat.

Day 05Trek to Dyeng (1850m), 7-8 hoursWe begin today’s trek by climbing over a rocky ridge to Salleri, and then trek down to Sirdibas/Philim. The valley widens a bit as the trail continues up to Ghatte Khola. We further continue walking upstream to a long suspension bridge in Philim, a large Gurung village. The trail turns north just above the lowest house in the village and stays on a fairly level trail as it crosses millet fields to EkleBhatti. The route now enters a steep. At this point, we trek down to the grassy land slopes, cross the Budhi Gandaki, then trek along the west bank for a while, then cross to the east bank and then back again. As we continue through the trail the valley widens and we pass through bamboo forests to the Dyang Khola. Upon crossing the Khola(river), we reach the small village of Dyang. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.
Day 06Trek to Namrung (2660m), 6-7 hoursAfter a hot breakfast, we cross the Budhi Gandaki and climb to Rana (1910m). From the bridge, we climb a bit to join a trail from Bhi, then move west up the Budhi Gandaki valley. The trail also passes through Pine forests and Maniwall where we turn towards a corner that follows to Ghap. We further cross the Budi Gandaki several times today and come across several Gompas during the trail. The trail follows the river upstream through a dense forest. After crossing the river at an impressive spot where it thunders down a narrow gorge, the forest becomes less dense and the trail is fine again. The pleasant walk continues and after a last steep climb we reach Namrung. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.
Day 07Trek to Lho (3180m), 5-6 hoursAfter a very good sleep at night early morning we wake with hot tea and take hot breakfast, after this, we start trek for today as well, after a little trek we cross the wooden bridge then we climb gradually and pass through forests and reach Shyo Village, a fine village with many chortens and barley terraces. During the trail we see very stunning views of Shring ji and Ganesh Himal I (7429 m) and from the village one can also see Mt. Himal Chuli (7893 m), Manaslu (8156 m) in the south. The trail drops and crosses the side valley of Simnang Himal with Ganesh Himal always close by. Finally we reach to our destination for the day Lho. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.
Day 08Trek to Samagoun (3530), 5-6 HoursAgain another beautiful for the trek starts here, when we leave Lho village, we climb a little bit where we found a gate for the Lho Monastery then we immediately trek down to river side around 100 m. After then we again cross wooden bridge and we climb up to Syala (3520 m.) Village around 2 hours. In Shayla village we will be surrounded by high mountains like Mt. Himal Chuli (7893 m), and Peak 29 (Ngadi Chuli) 7871 m. to the left, Manaslu (8156 m) and large glaciers straight ahead, and other snow summits to the right, and at the far end stands Ganesh Himal I (7429 m). Today’s journey ends in Samagaon. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.
Day 09Trek to Samdo (3690m), 5-6 Hours Today, we descend to the Budhi Gandaki River, that has turned north and follow it to a bridge over a side stream. The trail to the left leads to the Manaslu Base camp. The Larkya la Trail passes several mani walls as the valley begins to widen. It is an easy trail on a shelf above the river passing the juniper forests of Kermo Kharka. We drop off the shelf, cross the Budhi Gandaki on a wooden bridge and climb steeply onto a promontory between two branches of the river. After river we climb up and where we found first chorten of Samdo village then we found another maniwall after this we found Samdo. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.
Day 10Acclimatization day (go to Tibet boarder) 7-8hrs This is another day set aside for proper acclimatization. There are two options for us today. The option that we highly recommend is a hike, up the valley directly at the back of the Samdo village. This hike will take us to one of the trade passes to Tibet for excellent views of Mt. Manaslu (8156 m) along with other Himalayan ranges including Simrang, Hiunchuli (6441 m), Ngadi (7871 m), Larkye Peak (6249 m), Cheo Himal ( 6820 m) and possibly Kang Guru behind the pass. On route to these viewpoints we pass many seasonal herding settlements called doksas and sight some beautiful mountain birds like the Lophophorus (the national bird of Nepal), Lammergeyer and Himalayan Griffin soaring high above us. Another option for today could be a trip to the Gya La ('large pass') to the north of Samdo, a more frequently used trading route to Tibet. But, this is a rather longer hike (whole day) and hence could be a little tiring. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.
Day 11Trek to Dharmasala(4470m) 5-6hrs With the beautiful morning and hot breakfast again our day starts, we continue our walk down the edge, cross the wooden bridge over Budi Gandaki again and begin walking upward. Upon crossing two streams and viewing the Larkya Glacier we go around the valley of the Salka Khola and climb up again to the stone guest house (4450 m), which is not a lodge but a kind of shelter called Dharmshala, also known as Larke Phedi. The short walk today also leaves plenty of time for acclimatization and relaxing in the afternoon. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.
Day 12Trek to Bhimthang93720m) Via Larkya la pass(5106m) 9-10hrs Today a final challenging of the trek, we wake early morning around 4 o'clock and take breakfast whatever we get and we start our trek at 5 o'clock. We climb about 2 hours then we reach a valley on the north side of the Larkya Glaciers from where we can enjoy great views of Cho Danda and Larkya Peak. Finally, we walk across moraines of the glacier, making a gradual ascent which becomes steeper only in the last section of the pass. From the pass, there are outstanding views of Himlung Himal, Cheo Himal, Kangguru and the huge Annapurna II (7937 m). It is a longer day than usual to Bimtang. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.
Day 13Trek to Tilche 2300m, 6-7 hrsHopefully yesterday's tiring body will come up in a shape today. Another trek will start again. From a ridge at Bimthang, we can enjoy great views of Mt. Manaslu (8,156 m), Lamjung Himal (6,983 m), Himlung Himal (7,126 m) and Cheo Himal (6820 m). We descend further and cross a high pasture (Sangure Kharka) followed by a bridge over Dudh Khola. We walk through rhododendron forest and follow a trail through a narrow valley until we reach the highest cultivated land of the valley at Karche, 2785 meters. We pass across fields before making a steep climb over a ridge. The trail comes off the ridge in a big, sweeping arc to the river bank at 2580m. A short distance beyond is the village of Gho. Due to yesterday's tiredness we might take an overnight rest at Gho but better lodges are available at Tilje, so Alpine Excursion Treks recommends to at Tilije. Overnight at Lodge/Tent
Day 14Trek toJagat 1400m. 6-7hrsIt’s an easy trek from Tilije to Jagat as you follow Marsayangdi River through the bamboo forests to Dharapani.
