Rupinala Pass Trek

Duration: 17 Days

Rupina - La 4,610m trek is an adventurous and awe-inspiring trek in the northwest of the Kathmandu valley. The trekking route lies in the historically significant Gorkha district. It is also known as the lower Manaslu region. Walking through the ethnic communities, rhododendron forest and exploring the dramatic attractions of the Himalayas, you can experience the rich cultural fascinations of the locality.

The trek begins from Gorkha, after a scenic drive from Kathmandu. The trail is up, down and zigzag that passes green fields, forest, and different villages. Kalikasthan, Gairichhap, Thala, and Sambhe come before you reach to renowned Laprak village. Laprak is densely populated by the ethnic Gurung people. Exploring the culturally loaded village, local traditions and experiencing hospitality, you head towards the Rupinala Pass, which is about 4600 meters. During the trek, the panoramas of Mt. Manaslu (8156m), Peak 29 (7871m), Himal Chuli (7893m), Boudha Himal (6672m), Ganesh Himal and Langtang ranges can be explored. Making a mini circuit, the itinerary of Rupinala pass trekking ends in Aarughat, however, if you want to connect the Manaslu circuit or to Tsum valley, all possibilities are open.

Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are travelling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. We thank you for your understanding.

Pre-Trip Meeting:

Prior to all our treks and expeditions, we host a Pre-Trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce them to other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. We believe that pre-trip meeting is very important in order to better preparation of the trekking.

Best Time to Trek to Rupina La Pass: 

Spring (February, March, April, May) and Autumn (October, November) are the best seasons for the Manaslu Circuit Trek. Trekking in summer/monsoon (June, July) will be affected by rain but summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. The trekking routes are crowded during spring and autumn but during monsoon and winter the routes are not packed and you could enjoy rather best of nature
