After acclimatization and few camps on various villages trekkers walk through the great and challenging Larke La Pass. The view of mountains as far as Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range entices everybody from the top. Trekkers will eventually get joined with the Annapurna Circuit Trekking trail on the other side of the pass. Our travel planners have formulated the short trekking route with the provision of elongating it to Annapurna Circuit. If you want to stop the walking then it can be done from Dharapani. Local Jeep will take you to Besisahar from where the private jeep or tourist bus will bring you back to Kathmandu. 12 Days Short Manaslu Trek can be shortened again if you contact with the travel planners.
