Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking is another most appreciated trekking in Manaslu region designated for both indoor and outdoor travelers. It is the unique adventure with two major attractions: closer view of mountain, and experience of influential Buddhist culture, tradition, and lifestyle of people of Tsum Valley. This trekking area is bordered to Tibet too. Thus, the word ‘Tsum’ is derived from the Tibetan word Tsombo meaning ‘vivid’. Like the name, Tsum treasures natural beauty of huge mountains, pine, and oak forest, cascading waterfalls, number of streams, and natural hot springs.

Tsum Valley is a real gem of this trek which is surrounded by Baudha Himal and Himalchuli on the west, Sringi on the north, and Ganesh Himal on the south. The unique wilderness and vegetation are also major aspects attracting most of the tourists from both inside and outside of the country. Major animals found are the rare snow leopard and red panda. Some culturally different festivals like Lhosar, Dhachyang, Saka Dawa and Fanning carry unbelievable importance for the residential people. So, if any of these festivals fall during your trip, you will be able to sink in these culturally purified practices.

Without any doubt, you can enjoy Tibetan Butter Tea, natural coffee, and local meals for your hungry appetite. These splendid blends of natural and cultural experiences will take you to the seven skies. During the trail, you will stay in lodges and tea houses. But, camping can also be arranged if you demand it.

The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking starts with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Arughat. This drive is followed by the trek to Soti Khola, Machha Khola, Jagat, Chisopani, Chumling, Chokhangparo, Nile, Mu Gompa, Burgi, Chumling, Philim, Khorlabesi, Soti Khola and finally to Arughat. From Arughat one can easily catch bus/jeep to Kathmandu. In this way, this remote trek starts and ends at the country’s major hub, Kathmandu.

Important Information

For trekking to the restricted areas in Nepal, Nepal Immigration Rule suggests that a minimum of 2 people can be allowed. The same rule is applied for Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking. This rule is formed because permits can be issued for minimum 2 people. If you want to travel alone, we, Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition can easily arrange permits for you, but you must pay costs for 2 people. And if you pay the single supplementary charge of $140, your permit will be made available easily and you can enjoy your trip fluently. We also arrange group joining the trip. You can choose any dates in the fixed departure section, but if mentioned does not match your time, you can simply ask for availabilities.

Additional Information

There is a requirement for the special allowance card for Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek. To get this allow, we require a full working day (Sunday to Friday) after you arrive in Nepal (Kathmandu). You can book this trek in Nepal as prior as you can and report us about your landing on a working day so that we can arrange your permits easily.

Single Supplementary

The single supplementary cost is $140, which is compulsory. In this cost, we assure your 100% successful trek, if you are an alone traveler. Your trek will be accomplished in your requested timetable.
