Baraha Pokhari Trek

Trip Description

Baraha Pokhari trek, also known as Manaslu trek, is a very scenic trek & offers superb views of the world´s eighth highest peak Mount Manaslu, from the ridges that lie to its southwest. Few trekkers walk these trails, lending the route a pioneering feel that once drew visitors to the better known regions of Everest and Annapurna. Manaslu Baraha Pokhari trek is getting popular day by day similar like Annapurna Base Camp trek.

From the trailhead at Phalesangu/Archalbot village we climb steadily through the paddy fields and terraces of Gurung villages to a Tamang settlement of Phurano Dobar, where C.A.N. has helped the villagers install clean water systems for the whole area. Here, sometimes, the local women’s group put up a cultural show with typical Tamang songs and dances for the visitors. Trekking up the ridge through rhododendron forests we reach Baraha Pokhari lake, believed by Nepalese witch doctors to be a place of special power. Above the tree line, we are treated to a superb vista of Himalayan peaks stretching from the Annapurnas in the west across mighty Manaslu to the Langtang Himal in the east. The ridge we trek along leads to Mount Himal Chuli (7540m) and we follow it upto the height of 4200m. If we extend the trip by two days we camp at 4334m and those who are fit enough have the option to continue to 4719m.

 

Winding along the contour line through forests that open up periodically to give further views, we arrive at Nam Pokhari from where we drop to the valley floor weaving among the terraces, farms and paddy fields that are typical of the middle hill country of Nepal. We then continue trekking via Ghan Pokhara and finally finish our trek at Begnas Lake Fitness & Experience: The trek is well paced but with some steep ascents and descents, the fitter you are the more enjoyable the richer the experience will be.
