Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek Overview

The Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek is a 19-day teahouse trip that takes trekkers close to the world's eighth-highest peak, Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), through the mysterious valley of Tsum. Manaslu, the world's 8th tallest mountain, is a sight to behold.

Tsum Valley, which is also a pilgrimage destination, adds to the allure with its traditional Buddhist cum Tibetan culture and way of life, which has been undisturbed by modernity. On this excursion, you will discover Tibetan Buddhism's ancient traditions while enjoying their distinct daily rituals and way of life in these remote and largely unspoiled parts of Nepal. The Manaslu Tsum Valley trekking is a mystical paradise of Buddhist temples and nunneries, spinning devotional wheels, and the deep-throated sound of long Tibetan horns thundering across the distances, making it one of Nepal's best assets of diverse identity. It's a region of patchwork meadows, terraced fields, and the majestic Ganesh Himal lending their breathtaking touch to the much-vaunted beauty, bathed in the light of its gentle population and their everlasting conviction in the sanctity of all life.

From Kathmandu, you will travel to Machha Khola, where the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek Itinerary begins. You will go through Budhi Gandaki and into the settlement of Lapubesi, passing through terraced fields and little villages. The journey to Tatopani passes through forests and smaller communities, culminating in a hot spring spa where you may unwind in the evening. On the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek route to Philim, views of Sringi Himal accompany you. After passing through Chumling, you will arrive at Chhokang Paro in the Upper Tsum Valley, where you will be greeted by spectacular views of Ganesh Himal, Boudha Himal, and Himal Chuli. You will proceed via Piren Phu (pigeon cave), a sacred site with Buddhist paintings, inscriptions, and carved stones, on your way to Nile/Chhule, where you will halt for exploring.

The Mu Gompa, located at 3700 meters, will be your next stop before moving on to the Rachen Gompa, a nunnery. The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek journey to Gumba Lungdang takes you through pine and rhododendron woods and the Siyar Khola. You will relax and travel to Ganesh Himal Base Camp from here. You must start early because the journey to Lokpa, your next stop, lacks adequate housing and services. You will cross Gurung and Thakali villages on the way from Lokpa to Ghap and finally to Lho. You will take a break at Samagaon and tour the hamlet for another day. From here, you progressively gain elevation to Samdo, Dharmasala, and finally, Bhimtang, where you cross the Larkya La pass at 5160 Meters. Then you will trek ahead to Dharapani from where you will take a Public Bus to Kathmandu, which finally concludes your Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek Itinerary successfully.

Preparation for Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek in Nepal

Mountain hiking needs a great deal of endurance and strength, both of which may be acquired by regular exercise. To prepare yourself for this trekking adventure, we strongly advise you to exercise frequently, go hiking, run, or go to the gym. Walking, running, swimming, and cycling four to five times a week will help your body adapt to regulate its breathing. To prepare for Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking, you can hike for 5 to 7 hours on local routes or small hillsides with minimum breaks. To prepare for this trek, there are several things you should consider, including your physical fitness, gear, and logistics.

  • Physical Fitness: The Manaslu Tsum Trek is strenuous, and it's essential to be in good physical shape to enjoy the experience. The trek involves hiking for several hours each day, often on steep and rocky terrain, at high altitudes. To prepare for this, you should start training at least several months in advance. This should include cardio exercises such as running, cycling, or swimming, as well as strength training to build up your legs and core.
  • Gear: You will need a good quality backpack, comfortable hiking boots, appropriate clothing, and a wide range of other gear, including a sleeping bag, camping equipment, a stove, headlamp, sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, and gloves, just to mention a few. Make sure to have enough gear or you can also rent it in Kathmandu.
  • Logistics: The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek requires a special trekking permit and a government-appointed guide. Make sure to plan your trek well in advance, as permits for the trek are limited and can be difficult to obtain. Also, you should book a guide and a porter, if you want one, in advance as well.

Lastly, we recommend getting insurance that covers emergency evacuation, as the trek takes place in a remote area and emergency medical care may be difficult to access. Also, keep in mind the acclimatization schedule to avoid altitude sickness and other illnesses. Overall, the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is a spectacular trek that offers a great adventure and unforgettable memories. However, preparation and being well-informed is key to ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek will take you to high elevations, due to which high altitude sickness is very common, you must be cautious. According to hikers, snow leopards have been spotted in a variety of locations. Going out alone at night might be dangerous. Its isolation heightens the trek's difficulties. The trail is in poor condition. Throughout the walk, you shouldn't anticipate having nice lodging or meals. It is more difficult to cross the Larkya La Pass.

At the greatest trek elevations, the policy must cover medical and emergency repatriation charges, including helicopter rescue and evacuation (up to 6000m). We can make insurance company recommendations based on our client's experiences, but we do not sell insurance coverage. Once a trip has been booked, trekkers are asked to provide comprehensive insurance information. In an emergency, we will use your insurance policy and paperwork to save time and money by rescuing you and covering your medical expenses.

    Altitude Sickness and Remedies in Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

    A rest day in Samdo is included in Green Valley Nepal's Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek Itinerary package to provide appropriate acclimatization and avoid the danger of acute mountain sickness. Your walk will begin in Machha Khola and continue for many days at low altitudes, exploring the secluded Tsum Valley before arriving in Samdo. It gives your body an abundance of time to adjust to the current high-altitude atmosphere, lowering your chance of altitude sickness.

    If you ignore the signs of altitude sickness, it can be fatal. Green Valley Nepal Trek's guides are well-trained in first aid and have vast Himalayan expertise. Oximeters are used to measure your oxygen levels, which aids in the early diagnosis of altitude sickness. We assure you that your safety and well-being are in capable hands. Altitude sickness prevention will be recommended by your hike leader. The ideal strategy is to hike slowly and drink plenty of water, it could be 4 liters daily. The best way to avoid extreme altitude sickness is to lower it as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that your trekking leader has the authority to either carry the trip or call a halt to the ascent depending on the team's general condition.

      Manaslu Circuit with Tsum Valley

      With Pembe serving as our guide, Raj and Arjun from Green Valley organized the Manaslu Circuit with Tsum Valley. They were excellent from beginning to end; they made things simple and frequently went above and above to assist us with our travels in Kathmandu and provide guidance. The hike was a fantastic introduction to Nepal and was quite beautiful!

      Amazing experience - Manaslu & Tsum Valley Trek

      This April, we enjoyed an incredible hike with Green Valley. They have been excellent from the first day of communication to the last! We had to rearrange a few things, and Raj was accommodating throughout. He gave a wealth of insightful information that went well beyond the topic of the actual hike.

      Narendra, our tour guide, proved to be extremely knowledgeable and well-versed in the Manaslu and Tsum Valley areas, making them his natural habitat. Very enjoyable to be around and happy to share his knowledge! With keen eyes, he assisted us in identifying a variety of wildlife and highlighted other fascinating facts about the area and its inhabitants.

      His amiable and approachable demeanor allowed us to converse with numerous locals, which greatly to the value of the visit. A small adjustment to the schedule allowed us to get fantastic vistas of the mountains even though air pollution threatened to obscure the greatest ones the following morning! Would I act differently? Don't take public transportation to get to the starting point!

      Without a doubt, I would utilize and recommend Green Valley! Many thanks for a wonderful trip!
