On the way to the Manaslu region, lies a place that is less explored where trekkers spend the night while hiking back from Larkya pass and Tsum Valley Trek. Bhimtang cannot be described in words because they don’t do justice for what it is. Nestling in the abode of Mount Manaslu, the smell of fresh mountain air, and pristine nature all sets you on a peaceful and admiring mode naturally. This trek is an opportunity to devour yourself with the amazing views of snow-capped mountains like Manaslu, Kangaru, Ponkar, and Himlchuli. Though it is a newly discovered trail, it is slowly gaining its popularity and soon will be counted among the best treks in Nepal.

Bhimtang: A place yet to be fully discovered!
    • Not just the mountains, this place is adorned by the lake famous for the scenery it provides and its glacier called Ponkar lake is 4100m above sea level. Ponkar lake on the right and Ponkar glacier on its left with an unbothered presence will make your heart swell with the uncontainable beauty of this set of nature.
    • Ponkar lake is a perfect day tour destination. The lake is about one and a half hours of trek far from Bhimtang and it is a wonderful hike through mustard fields, meadows, and grazing yaks.
    • Bhimtang is a new trekking destination and thus does not see much crowd as in other routes such as ABC or EBC. Slowly it is winning a place in people’s hearts and for sure in no time will be the next one to be in buzz for its unmatched beauty.
    • Though Bhimtang is a part of the Manaslu circuit trek, this place is recognized as worth making a trek o

When to make a trip to Bhimtang?

The surge of trekkers in Nepal increases during specific seasons. During spring and autumn, you can see a whole lot of people with their bags hiking in the mountains. And there is a reason for it.

Spring has warm days, chilly mornings, and evenings. The temperature is moderate and the days are clear. This is all that we want to get the best views after the taxing journey. Spring is basically the start of the trekking season in Nepal.

Similarly, Autumn (September-November) offers the clearest atmosphere after all the dust that gets washed away by the monsoon rain. The days are warm and clear and the nights are cold.

You will get amazing views during winter too but the temperature gets extremely cold.

Trek difficulty

Bhimtang is a moderate trek and requires no previous trekking experience. Anyone with good physical fitness can complete the trek easily.

Trekking permits

Trekking to Bimtang requires two permits: Manaslu Conservation Area Project Permit and Trekker’s Information Management System(TIMS) card.
