Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

   This trek is a combination of two popular routes, the Manaslu Circuit trek, and the Tsum Valley trek, which takes you to some of the most remote and unspoiled regions of Nepal. Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is a highly sought-after, excellent adventure in the Himalayas. This challenging journey around Mt. Manasalu passes through the inaccessible highlands and the stunning Himalayas. The trek takes you through remote and beautiful landscapes, including the Tsum Valley, which is considered a sacred and hidden valley that is considered to be a pilgrimage site by the local people.

   This 22-day Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek takes you through some of the most remote and beautiful landscapes, including the sacred and hidden Tsum Valley. Starting from Machhakhola and ending in Dharapani, the journey offers a chance to explore traditional villages, and lush forests and to conquer several high passes, such as the challenging longest pass in the region the Larkya La Pass at 5,106 meters. The best season for the trek is from March to May and from September to December. Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is considered to be challenging and requires previous trekking experience.

   The Manaslu Tsum Valley presents ancient Buddhist monasteries and stunning landscapes. As you trek through the valley, you will pass through traditional villages, where you will get a chance to meet and interact with the local people and learn about the culture and way of life of the Manaslu Region. Manasalu Tsum Valley Trek also has a trekking trail that follows the historic salt trade route along the lovely Budi Gandaki River. The trekkers can experience stunning Himalayan terrain, high-altitude glaciers, diverse Tibetan culture, and rare species, among other things. Mount Manaslu, with a height of 8,163 m, goes around by trekking.

     It is also important to note that this trek passes through areas that are prone to avalanches and landslides, so it's crucial to be prepared and to trek with a guide who is familiar with the route. Since the Tsum valley trek, previously closed to visitors, was finally opened to the public in 2008, it has allowed trekkers to trek through the Manaslu Tsum Valley. The trial is still very much intact, and traveling through it is like embarking on an adventure in a remote ancient region free of modern bonds.

     Overall, the Manaslu Circuit and Tsum Valley trek is a truly unforgettable experience that offers a chance to explore some of the most beautiful and remote regions of Nepal, while also immersing yourself in the culture and way of life of the local people.
