Manaslu Base Camp Trekking

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

Trip Introduction

“Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the Human Spirit” The Tsum Valley lies north east of Manaslu. The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is one of the lesser known trekking routes in Nepal. This trek takes one to the sacred pilgrimage valley of ‘Tsum’ located in the western Nepal part of Nepal called Gorkha. This Trek is quite similar to the Manaslu Circuit Trek and it can also be taken as a combination of both the treks as Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek explores some of the regions that are not touched by the two tracks. The valley is rich in ancient art, culture and religion. It adds a richly rewarding extension to the Manaslu trek.

Our Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek start and the end point is Aarughat, we take a scenic drive through the Middle Hills leading to the trailhead beyond Arughat at Soti Khola approximately seven hours drive away from Kathmandu. The first half of the trek ascends the BudhiGandaki 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 truly entering 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 BuriGandaki regions of Leiden, Machhakhola, Jagat and Philim. The trekkers will also have the opportunity to learn about the local culture and religion of the people. We will today be trekking through the last village in the Tsum Valley named the Nile at 3361 meters till Mu Gompa at 3700 meters of an altitude. This trail to Mu Gompa is used as the trail for import and export from Tibet with the help of yak for local villagers. Along the whole trek, you will get to know that this entire region is profoundly influenced by the Buddhist religion. You will also be observing this whole scenario during this trek. We can observe the spectacular sunrise through the Ganesh Himal. We now start descending from Gompa Lungdang until we reach Soti Khola. We now end our epic trek by reaching Arughat via Soti Khola from where we drive back to Kathmandu.

Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek in this geographically extra spectacular and culturally most mesmerizing area, that rewards the trekkers to discover ultimate nature and cultural heritage and experience the mountain lifestyle in Tsum Valley and Manaslu. Normally the best months for this trek are September, October & November during the autumn season and after mid-March, April & May during the spring season. Come and join the team of Nepal Holiday Treks and Tours to trek through the off beaten paths of this blossoming and profound region with our experienced staffs. Truly a trek you won’t forget!
