Trek Overview

Discover the secret Tibetan Buddhist land lying at the edge of one of the most secluded Himalayan valleys. Tsum Valley is one of the world’s remotest Himalayan Valleys which was also a restricted region until recently. The trek to Tsum Valley takes you into the majestic surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. The region once being part of Tibet looks completely different from what you will find elsewhere. The people of Tsum Valley or the Tsumbas belong to Tibetan origin with their own ancient form of dialect, art, culture, and religion. Very few adventure travelers have made it to this high and mysterious valley, which used to be an important trade link with Tibet. In the initial days, we trek the route of Around Manaslu Trek or the Manaslu Circuit Trek. The Tsum Valley lies on the northern part of Manaslu and used to be a restricted area until 2008. The region is still less exposed in comparison to other touristy areas, with relatively virgin and less beaten paths in comparison to the more popular regions. The Tsum people have their own way of family life, which may be quite surprising for many outsiders. All the brothers in the family are married to a single girl, what you may call a practice of polyandry.

The trek start and endpoint are Arughat, a seven hours drive from Kathmandu. The first half of the trek ascends the Budhi Gandaki Valley on good paths through a mix of dense forest, terraced fields, and hill villages. As we leave the main Manaslu Trail for the Tsum valley, suddenly we get a feeling of entering truly into the hidden valley. While on the trek, we also pass through the alpine forests, glacial rivers, and enjoy the warm hospitality of ethnic people. Pass the lower Buri Gandaki regions of Liding, Machhakhola, Jagat and Philim. We also visit the ancient Gombas of the region such as Rachen Gompa, Mu Gompa, Dephyudonma Gompa.

Manaslu Tsum valley trek is one of Nepal’s Himalayan charms to observe a dazzling collection of panoramas, peak and serene valleys. The trekkers who trek to the Manaslu and Tsum region will take pleasure in a marvelous array of geographical landscapes and cultural diversity.

Manaslu Tsum valley trek can explore the wilderness and get the opportunity to explore the local culture of the traditional villages of Samagaon and Samdo and observe the lifestyle of Tibetan people.

Tsum valley was only opened for trekkers a few years ago and the trail traverses through pristine areas where you will witness the beauty of nature than any other places. This trek suits best to those who are looking for challenging trekking in Nepal and it is also a part of the Great Himalayan Trail.

Manaslu Tsum valley trek is a magical enchantment of the trekking which presents the awe-inspiring views of Manaslu and hidden Tsum valley. Along the way you can see the varied range of the flora, and fauna, passing through incredibly sheer-sided gorges, the deep river of the Budhi Gandaki and Marsyangdi rivers which offers central access to the highlands beyond the major Himalayan chain.
