Cross Larkya La Pass 5,135m/19842ft & trek to Bimthang to 3,590m/11811ft. Time 7 to 8 hours trek
Eventually the trek today begins very early towards Larkya La Pass with a long calm climb. Then crossing a small ridge a slight descent will bring you to the lake then an up climb will bring you to the top of the moraine at 4700m. The trial now becomes even steeper along the grassy slopes. Soon, the prayer flags on the pass become distantly visible. As you make a final steep climb after slightly sliding down to four frozen lakes, you will be at the pass at 5100m. Three to four hours of trek from the Larkya rest house will bring you to the pass. The west view from the pass is amazingly mesmerizing. Manaslu 8156m, Himlung Himal 7126m, Cheo Himal 6820m, Gyaji Kung, Kang Guru 6981m and Annapurna II 7937m glitter like huge heaps of silver from the point. Dropping straight away 650m down in about an hour along the harsh steep slope, the comfortable trail starts to a small spring at 4080m. As the trial takes a corner, the valley becomes wider heading to a large meadow at Bimtang 3720m.
