    Re: Manaslu or Naar and Phu in April

    Larkya la is not exposed at all. Much gentler pass than Cho la or kongma la. I don't like exposure either. Manaslu is a fabulous trek. I would do it again and very rarely repeat trips.

    Re: Langtang in winter - which way?

    Rustic in 2004. I am sure there would be lodges now. I was out in the Ganesh Himal for 2 weeks. Never saw another foreigner in that time. Close to Sybaru Bensi I am sure you could manage. Further out...

    Re: Langtang in winter - which way?

    Up behind Sybaru Bensi is Chaurhattar, Gatlang, Gothen and the Chorten trail. Some fascinating Villages and much less touristy although I expect busier than when I went in 2004.
