Larkya peak climbing
Larkya peak climbing is situated in the Mansiri Himal range in the western part of Nepal at an elevation of 6,249m. Manaslu trekking is opened for foreigners since 1992. Larkya peak climbing is not technically difficult for climbing. Mountaineering association Nepal declared Mt. Larkya peak in group “A” category climbing a peak. This peak is very attractive though tricky and hard. Larkya peak is known for the wonderful panoramic views to admire the lofty mountaintop like Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Annapurna, Buddha Himal and Himalchuli. Larkya peak base camp is close to the Larkya La, a pass of 5,135 m. Sano Larkya Peak can be climbed in a long day from this base camp. However, to climb Thulo (big) Larkya (6,249 m), a high camp is needed. This trip will be led our local native experienced climbing and trekking guides. Itinerary provided here is consciously designed as per the acclimatization rule to cope the side effect of High Altitude (AMS), and reasonably priced with quality service ensured.
Sano (small) Larkya Peak climbing (5,807 m)
we can approach from base camp to the top of Sano Larkye(5,135m). Sano Larkya offers medium level ice climbing and is possible to climb in one day.However, to climb ThuloLarkya one more high camp is needed. Also its bit difficult to climb than Thulolarkya but you could explore once after summiting ThuloLarkya high camp and then complete both peaks.
Thulo (Big) Larkya Peak climbing (6,249m)
Thulo larkya offers more challenging climbing including higher level ice, glacier climb, therefore, middle camp needed to be set up beyond base camp. The climb up to the summit is quite steep and it takes 6-7 hours. Normally Sano Larkye is chosen because you can do without the high camp. There is an option for climbers is to make a high camp and then complete both peaks once.
