The Manaslu Circuit Trek is the best all round tea-house hike in Nepal on the Great Himalaya Trail; the new Annapurna Circuit. No camping needed.


Bimtang (or Bimthang) is a place of well earned rest after the long day of crossing the Larkya La. ‘tang’ means ‘flat place’ in Tibetan-origin languages, like ‘Langtang’ for instance. Bimtang has a huge meadow from which to gaze upon the surrounding mountain walls. New trekking lodges are being built here as you can see in the picture below. Due to the nature of the geography of Bimtang, and who owned which land and where, the lodges are oddly located. Due to an agreement among the lodge owners, you may find that you’re asked to stay in a particular hotel to event the numbers out.
