The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is an enchanting outdoor expedition in one of Nepal's best remote regions, predominated by the Gorka Himal, Baudha Himal, and Himal Chuli. The valley is bordered by two river systems, the Marshandi Khola to the west and Budhi Gandaki to the east. The trek begins in Arughat Bazar and follows the banks of these two rivers for a few days, leading you to beautiful settlements of the local communities. The expedition also features several high waterfalls that cascade to the main river, while the valley shelters numerous ancient temples and monuments. As you ascend through the landscapes, the rivers will start changing to the west, and you will pass through steep rocky gorges and dense pine forests. Further in the trek, you will have rest days from acclimatization to help you adapt to the increasing altitude.

Unlike other expeditions in Nepal, the 23 days Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek encompasses various climatic and geographical elements with diverse flora and fauna. The trail will pass through significant village settlements such as Chumlimg and Namrung, which Tibetan and Tamang people heavily populate. Therefore, the valley is rich in Buddhist culture, as the surrounding area is filled with chortens, mani walls, and prayer flags. Additionally, the valley is home to some renowned and holiest monasteries, where Tibetan Philosopher Milarepa and sage Guru Rinpoche meditated. As a result, it has become a hotspot for travelers who seek to discover peace and tranquility through meditation.

Besides, trekking in this particular region of Nepal is more challenging than other expeditions, as you will be hiking in rugged landscapes for 6-7 hours daily for 20 days. So, only travelers with prior experience can complete the trek with little hassle. Others must prepare themselves physically and mentally with proper equipment and guidance to experience the best of the 24-day Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek.

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek Route And Duration

The 23-day Manaslu Tsum Valley trek takes you to the lap of Mount Manaslu (8,163m), the eighth-highest mountain in the world, through the mystical Tsum Valley. Tsum is a popular pilgrimage destination, which adds a special allure to the region's traditional Tibetan and Buddhist culture. So, in this expedition, you will experience and immerse yourself in ancient traditions and rituals while hiking some of the most secluded parts of Nepal. Renowned as a mystical paradise, the beautiful blend of culture and tradition makes it one of Nepal's most unique trek destinations. The region is famous for its beautiful terraced fields, meadows, and majestic Himalayan mountain range.

The trek starts from Kathmandu, where you will travel to Arughat Bazar in a private vehicle or any other transport you choose. Further on your journey, you will travel alongside Budhi Gandaki and through a small settlement towards Soti Khola. Afterward, you will hike through dense forests and villages to Machha Khola. Along the way, stunning views of Sirngi Himal will accompany you as you make your way up the rugged and uneven terrains. You will continue your hike to Jagat towards Lokpa. You will then proceed to Chumling, where the majestic view of Himal Chuli, Ganesh Himal, and Boudha Himal will greet you. Eventually, you will arrive at Chhokang Paro; from here, you will gradually ascribe to the Nile and Mu Gompa. On the trail, you will find several sacred sites with Buddhist inscriptions, paintings, and carved stones.

After arriving at Mu Gompa, your next move will be to retrace your steps to Chumling and then to Deng. Further in the expedition, you will pass through and spend the night in destinations such as Namrung, Lho, Sama gaon, Samdo, Dharamshala, Bhimthang, Dharapani, Jagat, and finally to Kathmandu. Overall, the 23-day Manaslu To Tsum journey takes you through the region's heart through thick rhododendrons and pine forests, where you will be relaxed from your otherworldly desires and stress. Besides, you will also have rest days between hike days, giving you adequate time to replenish and adapt to the low oxygen level of the high-altitude region.

Besides, if you ignore the signs of altitude sickness, it can be dangerous. However, it would help if you did not worry. Our guides are well-trained and will respond to your needs. Additionally, your oxygen levels will be used to measure your oxygen level, which will aid in diagnosing any early signs and symptoms of altitude sickness. We also advise you to drink plenty of water during the expedition and not rush; hike at a slow and steady pace all the time.

Best Season for Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

March to May (Spring Season)

The Spring season is regarded to be the best time to trek in Manaslu and Tsum Valley. During this time, the view of the regional glaciers and surrounding mountain peaks is breathtaking. The temperature is perfect, and the sky is crisp and clear. There won’t be heavy snow or rainfall at this time of the year. So, expect clear blue skies during most parts of the trek. However, you must remember that the weather conditions can be unpredictable in higher altitude regions of the valley.

September to November (Autumn Season)

Apart from spring, the natural wonders of the Manaslu Tsum Valley trek are also the best experiences in autumn. The end of the Monsoon washes away all the pollution in the atmosphere, and the sky won't be cloudy, allowing you to enjoy majestic views of the surrounding landscape and snowcapped mountain peaks.
