Day 13: Trek to Larkya Pass (5106/16752ft) Decent Bimthang (3590m/11778ft) approx walks (8-9) hours
An early start (usually in the dark) with the head torch and proper trekking gears. Today is a long day and if there is any snow it can take us a long time to cross the pass, especially the descent. The trail leaves Dharamsala and climbs steeply at first but then more gradually by the side of the moraine of the glacier with great views of Larkya Peak. The ascent is gradual most of the way and is fairly easy if there is no snow (if there is snow or ice it will take us much longer). It’s a long and rocky ascent on the moraine with some short steeper sections to the top of the Larkya Pass (5,106m). The witness with prayer flags at 5,106m is the official Larkya La from where the views are sensational  - a wonderful panorama of peaks including Larkya Peak, Cheo Himal, and Hindu Peak and in the distance, we can see the tip of Annapurna 2. From the top, there is a 10 minute almost level walk to the second summit (which is a little higher and is also marked with a few prayer flags). From here the long very steep descent starts. We need to take care of as the path is steep and narrow. There is a landslide which we must cross carefully. The steep part of the trail eventually eases off onto a path that takes us down to the glacial moraine. The views are superb as we descend, and we can just spot Pongkar Lake, a brilliant blue glacial lake amidst glaciers below us. We stop for a well-deserved rest at the bottom of the steep section, where you are surrounded by immense snow-capped peaks. From this place descent becomes a bit easier, but no less spectacular, as we descend the valley to Bimthang, where we stay tonight at 3,700m our one night home.

We pass the terminal moraine of the Cheo Himal and cross a small wooden bridge. Ahead we have our last magnificent views of Manaslu. We descend into the wonderful jungle and follow a trail through a narrow valley.
