Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

Duration: 27 Days   |   Based on 1 Review

Manaslu Tsum Valley trek is a journey of exploring the unexplored and the unseen. A restricted area until 2008, Tsum valley also known as the Hidden Valley is a land filled and graced by great hamlets and exquisite monasteries. Situated in the mountain regions of Nepal, the Tsum valley, however, is still less exposed in comparison to other northernmost parts of the Manaslu, it lies on the Nepal Tibet border and hence, it is highly influenced by the exquisite Tibetan traditions.

Traditionally, the Tsum valley was an entirely different entity from both Nepal and Tibet. Unlike several tourist areas, with the relatively virgin and less visited areas. The people from the Tsum valley have their own way of family life, which may be quite surprising for trekkers, visitors, and foreigners. Do not be taken aback if a female that you meet has more than half a dozen spouses. All the brothers in the family are married to a single girl, a practice that is called polyandry. Compared with other areas, the Manaslu Tsum Valley trek is imploding with full of imminent mountains, sky-high passes, deep gorges, stunning hamlets, and Buddhist Stupas, Chorten and Mani walls.

Be prepared to be mesmerized as you are surrounded by the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal and Boudha Himalayan ranges. As we begin the trek, we explore the Budi Gandaki valley which is a beautiful mix of dense forests, picturesque farm terraced and villages residing on hills. As we move further away from the trails of Manaslu towards the Tsum valley, we are suddenly overcome by a feeling of euphoria of entering into the true Hidden valley. Gracing the trails of our trek are the stunning alpine forests, glacial rivers and the warm hospitality of the ethnic people. If we are at the Tsum valley, it is mandatory for us to be stunned by the beauty of the medieval Buddhist stupas of the region including the Milarepa's Cave, Rachen Gompa, Mu Gompa among others.
