Bara Pokhari trek also known as Manaslu trek is very scenic trek & offers superb views from the ridges that lie southwest of the world’s eighth highest peak Manaslu. Few other trekkers walk these trails, lending the route a pioneering feel that once drew visitors to the better known regions of Everest and Annapurna.

From the trailhead at Phalesangu/ Archalbot Village we climb steadily through the paddies and terraces of Gurung villages to the Tamang community of Phurano Dobar, where C.A.N. has helped the villagers install a clean water system for the Nagdi Himalwhole area. Typical of the Tamang’s strong cultural identity is the local women’s group, who may dance and sing for us in the evening. Continuing up the ridge, through forests of rhododendron, we arrive at the Bara Pokhari lakes, 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. Our ridge leads to 7540m Himal Chuli and we will follow it to the height of 4200m. If you extend the trip two days longer we camp at 4334m though 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 Tilar Villagefurther views, we arrive at Nam Pokhari from where we drop to the valley floor weaving among the terraces, farms and rice paddies that are typical of the middle hill country of Nepal. We then continue trek 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 experience will be. Previous trekking experience is not necessary. Average hiking per day in Baraha Pokhari will be 6-7 hrs.

3-country tour of Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet

I did an 18-day tour of these three countries through Adventure Land Tours operated by Chij Gurung in Thamel, Kathamndu. Arrangements done by Mr. Gurung were very good. Sightseeing and accommodations around Kathmandu were fine if you can overlook the traffic and bad roads around the city. Bhutan was exceptional, its a must see destination. And as for Tibet, I wouldn’t recommend anyone to travel to Tibet by road because road conditions are BAD, and it severely lacks in facilities. Lhasa is worth visiting so my sincere advice would be to fly into and out of Lhasa. If any one is looking for a personalized tour, I highly recommend Adventure Land Tours.
