Dyang to Namrung For Manaslu Circuit Trek

26 February, 2024 By Dambar Khadka

Dyang to Namrung: The Manaslu Circuit Trek starts after a sound sleep at the comfortable tea house of Dyang. You will wake up with a beautiful view of snow-capped mountains and greenery. After freshening up, you will enjoy your warm breakfast and continue your journey on the Manaslu Circuit Trekking to Namrung.

Dyang to Namrung Trail

You will hike along the riverside of Budhigandaki for a while unless you reach a suspension bridge. After getting to the bridge of Budhi Gandhaki, you will cross the suspension bridge and reach the opposite side of the Dyang. You cross the confluence of a tiny stream, Serang Khola, and another large stream, Budhi Gandhaki Khola. Again, you will continue to hike towards the Ranagaon, appreciating the spellbinding Waterfall and the surrounding views. Ranagaon is a village that lies 1980m in the middle of two small streams, Hyujung Khola and Thungbang Khola. It is also a campsite, where we can rest if tired.

Walking again will lead you to another small village, Bihi. It is at 2130 meters above sea level. Bihi is more populated than other villages, as many small villages surround it, including Tidur, Pajed, Krayak, and Bangrung. On your way to Bihi from Ranagaon, you will find a post office and school and check the post during your journey. Most inhabitants of the surrounding area follow Buddhism, as you can find several Buddhist pilgrimage sites, including Monastery, Chorten, and Mane.

However, Bihi is renowned primarily for the Monastery known as Shringi Gumba. Sringi Gumba is a monastery hidden in the northeast side of the Bihi village. Sringi Gumba is quite popular compared to other monasteries in terms of both religious views and scenic views. A stunning view of Shringi Himal, elevated at 7187m, can be seen from the Sringi Gumba. If you want to have a glimpse of the Shringi Gumba, then you will have to walk to the northeast side of the Bihi Village. Exactly below the Shringi Gumba, a campsite is in the Kuiya village, which is east of the Bihi.

If you give continuity to your journey without going to Shringi gumba, there is another camping site on the east side of the Bihi village. Again, you will start hiking after a short break at one of the campsites in Bihi village. From Bihi, there is an alternative route via Prok and Ghap. To follow the trail of Prok, you will have to cross the stream through the road. Meanwhile, following the trail of Ghap, you will have to cross several suspension bridges to reach Namrung.

If you want an alternative route to Prok, you can take a side trip to Kalchhuman Lake. Kalchhuman Lake, also known as Kal Tal in Nepali, is 3685m. You must take a southwestern direction from Prok for a side trip. Prok is a village situated at 2380m. It is also a camping site.

You will, again, continue your journey after going on the side trip of Kalchhuman Lake (Kal Tal) via Prok. Moving forward, your destination of Manaslu Circuit will lead you to the Gapsya. On the way to Gaspya, you will enjoy the stunning view of Waterfall.

However, we will go with the trail through Ghap as we only have a little time. A permit to trek in the restricted area only lasts seven days. Taking the trail of Ghap leads you through several villages, including Bur and Banrung.

You will cross the suspension bridge, the confluence point of two streams, Budhigandhaki River and Serang Khola. Walking via Bur and Banrung gives you a fascinating view of the snow-capped mountain peak, Tanji Himal (4493 m).

Ghap is a village situated near the bank of the Budhigandhaki stream at an altitude of 2160m. It is another campsite area where you have lunch and rest briefly. The village has a significantly lower population. What makes Ghap an exciting place is the abandoned Monastery named Chhak Lau.

Chhak Lau is a pilgrimage for Buddhists. It lies on the east side of the Gap. Usually, if there is any pilgrimage site, no matter which religion people belong to, they worship and continue to treat it as a holy site. But Chhak Lau is very mysterious, as it creates mystery within itself. If you are a mystery lover, you will like to explore Chhak Lau Monastery and solve the mystery. After visiting the deserted Monastery Chhak Lau, as you prefer, you will again walk forward to cross the suspension bridge to reach a small village, Gapsya.

No matter which route you take, both routes take you to Gapsya. You can visit the beautiful Monastery of Lord Buddha in Gaspya. Moving slightly forward from Gapsya takes you to the suspension bridge connecting Gapsya to Thonje. Again, you will visit Mane, a Buddhist pilgrimage site in Thonje. You will hike for some time, adoring the beautiful, dense forest Rhododendron. As there are several suspension bridges to reach Namrung, you cross the suspension bridge connecting Nedung, a small village, again.

Nedung is a village in the middle of two streams, Therang Khola and Serang Khola. Hiking through Nedung takes you to the Namrung, the final destination of the 4th-day trek of the Manaslu Circuit. You’ll cover a 19 km distance from Dyang to reach Namrung. As there is also the option of a side trip, there is no fixed time as the journey may take a short or long period. You will have a warm dinner at Namrung’s tea house. Your overnight will be at the same tea house, which is not luxurious but simple and comfy.
