Rupinala Pass trek (23 days)

This trek was officially opened to tourist in 1991, but mountaineering expeditions have had long access to the area. In 1950 a party led by H.W. Tillman trekked from Thonje to Bimtang and col. Jimmy Roberts crossed the Larkya La looking for an interesting mountain to climb. Manaslu( 8163m) was attempted by Japanese Expeditions every year from 1952 until 1956 when the first ascent was made. Having become known as "Japanese Mountain" much of the information about the area was available in Japanese. The Japanese continued to dominate the climbing scene of Manaslu until 1971. A few trekkers including peripatetic Hugh Swift, Managed to obtain the trekking permit for the region but otherwise this trek always has been the domain of the mountaineering expedition.This trek is geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating circumnavigating Manaslu peak 29 (7871m) Himal Chuli (7893m) and Boudha (6672m). Much of this trek is in a region of strong Tibetan influence. We cross the Rupina-La (4520m) and descend to the Marshyangdi river and further trek down to Besisahar from where we will drive back to Kathmandu.

Sama Gumpa is an interesting spot when we look through Manaslu Himal. Manaslu, being a restricted area, there are certain formalities required by the government of Nepal in obtaining a special permit.
