This trek starts in the lowlands in Arughat, where the 19-day Manaslu Circuit Trek usually begins. We will hike along the scenic Budigandaki River Valley passing though terraced farmlands, villages and forests. We will hike to Samdo (12,703ft), the last village before Larkya Pass, and then hike back to back to Sama Village from where we will take helicopter flight out to Kathamndu. This program is designed for hikers who do not wish to hike over Larkya Pass. You can see and enjoy the beauty of nature and culture in the Himalaya of Nepal without crossing high altitude passes. This program is also good for people with two-week vacation time.
Even if you are coming from sea level, you will be okay to join this journey as we will begin our hike at 1,870ft. We will get well acclimatized as we hike up. Anyone with hiking experience is welcome to join. Hike in and helicopter transfer out plan requires advance arrangement.
