Tsum Valley and Manaslu Explore Trek ( 29 days )

Tsum Valley and Manaslu Explore Trek

Trip Overview

This trip features three spectacular trekking regions of Nepal. Tsum Valley and Manaslu. The main trip follows the classic remote and less-frequented circuit around Manaslu, On this trip you will take an route to the Tsum valley. After visiting the Tsum Valley, you re-join the Manaslu Circuit trail at Bihi. After crossing the Larkya La you have entry to Annapurna region. Two regions (Tsum Valley and Manaslu,) are restricted areas and require special permits to enter. Thus there are a lot fewer trekkers on these routes compared to the Annapurna Circuit route at the end of the trek.

Tsum Valley and Manaslau areas are beautiful and fascinating regions located along the border of Nepal and Tibet. The inhabitants of the lower Buri Gandaki region (at the start of this trek) are Hindus (Brahmin/Chhetris) and Gurungs (Bonpos and Buddhists), while the inhabitants in the upper parts of the Buri Gandaki river are Buddhists and direct descendents of Tibetan immigrants who settled here in the early 1600s. The mani stones around Ghap (6,800ft) are particularly outstanding. A day beyond Ghap, you will enter truly high alpine country with spectacular close-up views of Manaslu at the head of the valley. You will trek towards Tsum Valley which was opened for trekking in October 2007. The crossing of the high pass of Larkya La (16,700 ft.), one of the most dramatic pass-crossings in the Himalaya, brings you to the Annapurna region. From here you trek towards the Annapurna region and end your trek.
