Rupina la Pass Trekking 19 days Itinerary

Nestled in the heart of Nepal’s Manaslu region, the Rupina La Pass Trek stands as an enticing challenge, drawing adventurous souls to its captivating vistas and lesser-trodden trails. This expedition is a mesmerizing odyssey, meandering through pristine landscapes, and remote hamlets, and culminating in a lofty mountain pass. Rupina La Pass, once a forbidden secret, unveiled its mystique to the world in 1991 AD, welcoming intrepid explorers to traverse its untamed terrain.

Unraveling Legends: The Birth of Rupina La

Immerse yourself in the intriguing folklore of this trail, whispered among the locals of Larpak and Barpak villages. Legend has it that the pass owes its name to a lost shepherdess, RUPINA, who vanished while tending to her sheep. Her disappearance bestowed upon the land the name it carries today, Rupina La Pass. Unlike the well-trodden paths of Everest Base Camp or the Annapurna Circuit, the Rupina La Trek remains a hidden treasure for those yearning for a raw and unspoiled expedition. The journey unfolds over 18-19 days, a harmonious blend of camping and navigating challenging terrain.

Nature’s Canvas: Geographical and Cultural Riches

The Rupina La Pass Trek weaves through an intricate tapestry of geographical marvels and cultural wonders. Offering a visual feast, it exposes you to the regal Himalayan peaks, including Manaslu (8,163 m), Peak 29 (7,871 m), Himal Chuli (7,893 m), Boudha Himal (6,672 m), Ganesh Himal ranges, and Langtang Himal ranges. These monumental sentinels rise majestically above lush valleys, a breathtaking backdrop to your adventure. Along your path, you might chance upon glimpses of elusive wildlife and vibrant avian inhabitants, adding an extra layer of intrigue to your journey.

Embarking on the Rupina La Trekking Itinerary

Your trek commences in Barpak village, ensconced within the Gorkha District. This sizeable village is inhabited predominantly by the indigenous Ghale and Gurung communities, many of whom boast a storied history of service in the renowned British Gorkha Regiment. Your voyage kicks off with a trek to Dharche Hill, an expedition adorned with superb mountain panoramas. The ridge you traverse offers a picturesque vantage point, unveiling sweeping views that will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on your memory. Following this, the path leads to the base camp, perched above the treeline, via mesmerizing mountain foothills that transition into icy wilderness.

Camping Amidst the Wilderness: A Unique Experience

Days spent wandering in the wilderness bring you to Nyak, a village perched high above the Budigandaki valley.
