The Tsum valley with Manaslu Circuit Trek package is a perfect way of celebrating the natural lure of enchanting valleys hidden in between the wilderness of mountains. We take you through some remote and unspoiled sections of Nepal, letting you enjoy the natural essence that lies within.
Trekking to the Manaslu and Tsum Valley regions is inarguably a memorable journey that combines the raw appeal of the world’s eighth-highest peak—Mt. Manaslu—with the lushness of forests, verdant valleys, traditional villages, and the Buddhist religion’s spirit.
During the tour, you will walk around Mt. Manaslu, appreciating the region’s geographical splendor. In a proper sense, this trekking package is a super combo of two interesting tours, namely the Tsum Valley Trek and the Manaslu Circuit Trek.
For your information, the Nepal Tourism Board opened Manaslu Trek for trekkers in 1995, and Tsum Valley was unknown to the world till 2008.
Though open to travelers, the trail receives only a few enthusiastic travelers owing to its remote terrain. Thanks to its off-the-beaten-track location, the region can still preserve its natural and cultural heritage intact.
Tsum Valley is an ancient territory hidden in the shadows of mountains. Veiled in the impressive surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Singri Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges, the valley lay near the Tibetan border and was a restricted area until 2008.
Inhabited by Tibetan-origin people, the valley is sparsely populated by Tsum people. These communities have their own unique culture, customs, lifestyle, and dialect.
As Buddhism is a dominant religion in the valley, you can find many caves, monasteries, and gompas in the valley that date back to the first century. Because of its remoteness, the valley still preserves all the ancient heritage that this place possesses.
Since the valley is less exposed to outsiders and differs from the rest of the world in having virgin land, off-beaten tracks, and Buddhism’s aura of religion, a trip to the valley is enlightening.
The prominent mountain passes, gorges, hamlets, gompas, and monasteries of the Tsum valley are all worth seeing on the Manaslu Circuit Tsum Valley Trek.
An interesting fact—Did you know?
Polyandry is still in practice in the Tsum valley. They wed brothers from the same family to a single woman! It sounds weird, but it is a fact.
The Tsum Valley with the Manaslu Circuit Trek package is an astonishing journey that takes you close to the highest mountains. One such peak is Mount Manalsu, which stands tall at an elevation of 8163 meters. It is the world’s eighth-highest mountain.
The adventure starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Macchakhola. From here, we slowly and gradually traverse upward to enter the Tsum valley.
Then we walk to Jagat. Jagat is a beautiful place nestled between the high mountains of Annapurna and Manaslu. It’s the starting point of some popular treks in Nepal, such as the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
We hike to villages like Chisapani and Chumling on our way to Chokhangparo. Similarly, in the Tsum valley, we explore the ancient villages, caves, and gompas such as Milarepa’s Cave, Mu Gompa, and Rachen Gompa.
After exploring the valley, we come out of the valley ahead and head towards the Larkya La Pass at an elevation of 5160 meters. We pass various villages, farmlands, forests, and hamlets on our way to the pass. As we reach the pass, we will see some incredible views of Mt. Manaslu and other peaks in the surrounding area.
Climbing up the pass can be a tough task, but proper acclimatization and the right walking techniques may help you accomplish the journey.
Tidy Himalaya helps you on each step of your journey. From proper itinerary planning to food, accommodation, transportation, permits, and other related services, we take care of all.
