Trip Introduction

Overview of Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

Interest derives awareness, and awareness derives realization of joy in the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek. Awareness is recreated by being in the Nepal Himalayas and meeting local people that you never would have gotten to know, increasing the level of perception entirely.

Feelings of joy result from realizing an interest in immersing in the Manaslu Trail. The guidance to the Manaslu existence helps to satisfy your deep desire to be in the historical Himalayas.

In local terms, Manaslu means “mindfulness.” Popping up and becoming interested in your mind realizes joyful wholeness, a high state of quality recreation. The notion of Himalayan wisdom (awareness) is flexibly applied to transform interest in you to be in Manaslu’s existence toward joyful wholeness.

Interest in Manaslu’s existence is valued as a transcended interest. To be at home, enjoy the homely environment, travel, and choose luxurious means of facilities (transport, meals, and accommodation) is a normal interest that almost all human beings in almost all periods have. Interest in remote Himalayan existence, such as at Manaslu, is understood as transcended interest.

Such interests may have that mindful intensity that can realize and transform you into joyful wholeness. This interest or will to be in existence, which helps “nothing to be in mind,” often has such intensity. Born in Himalayan existence and guiding in the core, central Himalayan existence since 1990, it has been observed that a rekindled interest in being in the Himalayas frequently awakens and transforms you toward wholeness.

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking may be an ideal destination if you want to immerse yourself in the Himalayas. Hopefully, the perfect goal is for you to realize harmony, compassion, love, togetherness, and joyfulness, which is wholeness.

We will leave early in the morning by bus for Soti Khola via Arughat. We will drive along the Prithivi Highway west of Kathmandu, viewing the terrace farms, rivers, villages, and dense forest. On a clear day, you may catch a glimpse of Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and Langtang.

To get to Arughat, there are two different routes. Either you will go through Gorkha Bazar or from Dhading Besi, depending upon the situation. But these 21 days of Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek will pass through Dhading Besi. The road is a little tricky until crossing the bridge, with lots of turns and tiny lanes to reach Dhading Besi. As soon as we get to Dhading Besi, we will turn to the left to go to Soti Khola.

Until Arughat, the road is somehow in good condition, but after that, you will experience some potholes. Ahead, you will continue along the scenic village while following Dorandi Khola northwards to Gorkha. On a clear day, you might witness Manalsu and Ganesh Himal from a distance. From Arughat, we have another 2-hour drive through past fields and cascading waterfalls till we reach Soti Khola.

Depending upon the seasons, you will also experience a variety of birds and plants in the forest, which makes your trip memorable.

As we walk ahead, the valley widens and reaches the Philim after crossing the bridge at Sirdibas. In Philim, you will experience different cultures and hospitality.

From Ekle Bhatti, you will see the two paths that separate Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit. We will not cross the bridge over the Budigandaki River but head east-north to the Lokpa. We experience that the river will become narrower than before and also see the confluence of the Syar River with the Tsum Valley. Lokpa is the first village in Tsum Valley that is blessed with a clear view of Mt. Manalsu. This village was completely hidden in the past and blessed by Padmashamva centuries ago.

After early morning breakfast, we will start our walk from the wild route of Lokpa village. This village is also considered an entrance to the Tsum Valley. There are no vast settlements in Lokpa and Chumling. Ahead, the trail has several ups and downs through dense forest. You will experience a fantastic view of Baudha Himal (6672m) and Ganesh Himal VI from the routes joining Lokpa to Chumling.

During the walk, you will first descend to Lungwa river valley and then ascend to the subtropical forest. You will notice lots of pine and rhododendron vegetation up there. Before reaching the Chumling village, we will cross the Syar River. You will hear the chirping birds in a specific season and the relaxing sound of the river during your stay in this village.

If you like exploring more, you can also take a side trip to this village. You can explore the upper part of Chumling village, which takes you to a monastery.

You will notice 2 different monasteries attached to the cave. Decorated with colorful paintings, excellent artistic scripts carved in the walls and stones, fluttering prayer flags, and significant scripts of the Buddhist religion, these caves are important socio-cultural assets in the valley.

After crossing the Serang Khola, the trail begins its meandering descent through the valley canyons into Ghap (2160m).

We continue our long ascent out of Ghap’s narrowing valley, where we’ll observe a variety of species, including the pheasant, the national bird of Nepal. Buddha is shown in various contemplative postures on Ghap’s mani wall, decorated with artistic sculptures.

Along the way, it goes by the mani wall and many fields and houses. The valley then opens up, and we pass through Sho Village on our way. This village is known for its incredible views of Manaslu (8163m), Manaslu North (7,157m), and Naike Peak. There are many yaks here.

Then we make another ascent, this time around the Salka Khola Valley. The next stop will be at a stone inn (4,450 m). After circling the gorge, the path emerges at Dharmashala, also called Larkya Phedi. You’ll have a great day viewing the Larkya Glacier and the towering Manaslu mountain.

Due to the length and difficulty of the trail ahead, we leave Dharmasala early. The trail then turns north and begins the ridge ascent in front of Dharmashala. We must make it across Larkya La Pass (5,160m) before the wind picks up.

We keep walking along the moraine until we reach a ridge with two cairns. Prayer flags flying above the pass can be seen from here. Incredible views of Himlung Himal, Cheo Himal, Kang Garu Peak, and Annapurna II can be seen from Larkya La pass. Travel time from Dharmashala to the Larkya La pass is between three and five hours.

The steep decline starts on the western edge of the moraine. Next, the path levels off as it winds down a grassy moraine to a tiny meadow and a spring. Soon after, the trail makes a sharp turn, and the valley opens up. A vast meadow with a mani wall and rest house near Bhimtang may be found ahead on the trail.

We descend to Bimthang, Dharapani, Besisahar, and then Kathmandu.

Is the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek Difficult?

The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is a demanding trek considered among the toughest in Nepal. This trip takes you to a remote village in the Himalayas near the Tibet border. This trail can be challenging for experienced and inexperienced trekkers due to its high passes and steepness.

As you climb, fewer trees will shelter you from the snow, sun, and wind. Regardless of your degree of experience or the number of times you have made this walk, you still risk getting altitude sickness if you do not take the necessary precautions.

How difficult the Manaslu Circuit Trek is will depend greatly on your fitness. Give yourself enough time to prepare before trekking because it is a long journey. To overcome the difficult terrain of the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek, you must be physically strong. So, we recommend starting with exercises at least 3 months before the trek.


Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek Permit

For the Manaslu Tsum Valley trek, you need to have three special permits; Manaslu Restricted Permit Fee, Manaslu Conservation Area Entry Fee, and the Annapurna Conservation Area Entry Fee (ACAP).

You cannot trek up Manaslu without a permit. This fee is necessary to ensure the future preservation of the region’s unique culture and ecosystem. MCAP and ACAP are also essential for the Manaslu Tsum Valley trip.

For more info; please visit: Trekking Route and Permit Fee

Note: In most circumstances, you will be required to present passport-sized images and a copy of your passport while filling out the official documentation. Therefore, you must bring at least 8–10 pictures in passport size. We will fulfill all legal procedures and obtain all necessary permits for your journey.

Accommodation on Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

The neighborhood residents run modest lodgings along the Manaslu and Tsum valleys. The tea houses were previously small wooden cottages with a room divided by wooden blocks. The rooms are basic, with twin sharing and shared bathrooms, or they may be separate in some places. Although camping on the Manaslu Tsum Valley trek is possible, most trekkers prefer to be accommodated in a teahouse.

The beds usually have a mattress pad, blanket, and pillow, and they are cozy. You will also be provided with a blanket, but you can take a sleeping bag with you as the night will be colder. The rooms are usually cheap, but you have to pay an extra charge for a hot shower, Wi-Fi, and electricity.

A central dining area with a heating system is always present and keeps the hotel warm. One can spend time with loved ones, unwind, chat with fellow trekkers, exchange emotions, and have coffee or tea in the evening.

Please be informed that we will provide you with accommodations only during the trek. While staying in Kathmandu, you should pay for your hotel yourself. There are numerous options of hotels available, and we want you to stay wherever you feel comfortable. We are always available if you need any suggestions on hotels.

Food and water on Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

Dhindo, rice, roti, and potatoes are the most significant among the Himalayas’ traditional Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek foods. The green vegetable Gundruk is fermented and frequently served as a soup. On the other hand, Dhindo is a porridge made from barley, corn, millet, or buckwheat. This meal is recognized to be more energizing and long-lasting.

Protein, mineral, and carbohydrate-rich foods and beverages give you the energy to walk on high-altitude treks like the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek. To make the travel experience more enjoyable, we focus on eating healthy foods and avoiding junk.

Drinking water taps are also available while you are on the trek. You will occasionally encounter natural water resources too. You can also buy mineral water, boiled water, and cold filter water in teahouses. However, we recommend chlorine drops or the SODIS method of purification rather than bottled water.

Please be aware that we will serve you three meals during the trek. The cost doesn’t include meals in Kathmandu. Because of the variety of food options available here, we let you explore breakfast, lunch, and dinner by yourself. We can also manage your food service in Kathmandu upon your special request. For that, please let us know while customizing your trip.

Best season to trek Manaslu Tsum Valley

Spring and autumn are ideal for trekking on the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek. For the autumn, ideally, mid-October and mid-December are best for the trek. The best time of spring is from the middle of March through the first week of June.

The most awesome things you encounter during this time are clear, pleasant weather, a lovely atmosphere, and much happiness. The views of the snow-covered peaks above the lush valleys and ranges will be stunning.

Altitude Sickness & Acclimatization of Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

The trails above 4000m are challenging, regardless of how many times you have hiked this or the same level trail. While trekking, acclimatization is crucial, as is regular hydration. It involves using a variety of strategies to adapt to the changing environment.

There is less oxygen and air pressure in the atmosphere of the high-altitude region above 3000 m. It would help to avoid alcoholic beverages and caffeine while trekking, as they are the primary causes of dehydration. Drink water frequently to hydrate your body.

Altitude sickness is a severe condition; if anyone ignores it, the case can worsen and cause death. Most of the best treks in Nepal are at the highest altitudes. So, before you trek, you must know about the altitude sickness in Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek: what it is and how to avoid it.

We request that you start exercising your body before you go high-altitude trekking. Join a gym, go hiking on rough terrain, and keep your diet in check. Following this helps you a lot during the trek.

Most asked questions

FAQs about Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

People have known for a long time that living in the Himalayas helps them feel joyfully whole. For a long time, being in the mountains, woods, or any other natural place has been linked to feeling complete inside.

The Himalayas have the power to bring people together and make them happy. Do not discount your personal interests. They may be so interesting that they motivate you to reach your goals and grow as a person.

Because of this, we think that the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is more than just a trip. How you experience it, though, will depend on how curious and aware you are.

The Larkya ka La Pass is the highest point of the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek, at 5106m.

If you want to visit the Manaslu region for any reason, you must first obtain permission to enter. To visit a protected region designated by the government for trekking, a particular trek permission is required. Manaslu Restricted Permit Fee, Manaslu Conservation Area Entry Fee, and Annapurna Conservation Area (ACAP) Entry Fee are required.

The permit is for your protection while entering the conservation area. This permit fee is also utilized to improve the national park.

Our itinerary is one of the best for all, so there may not be a reduced choice if you are a beginner in high altitudes. Reducing the itinerary may lead to a lack of time to adjust to changes in the environment, humidity, or pH, which may lead to high altitude sickness and other problems. Your body needs time to produce more red blood cells to counteract the lower oxygen saturation in blood at high altitudes.

But if you are willing to spend more time in the Manaslu Tsum Valley Himalayas, we have the best other options to extend the days and customize your itinerary per your demand. Feel free to get in touch with us, and our team shall provide you with your dream package under your priorities and our guidance.

In Nepal, it is mandatory to hire at minimum one government-licensed guide from a local trekking service. There must be at least two members in each group (not including the guide or porter).

Additionally, if you experience high altitude sickness, your trekking guide will immediately monitor your symptoms. They will help you at every stage because they are familiar with the surroundings and the wildlife. If you are an independent trekker, it is not necessary to bring a guide along for this trek, but a guide will be helpful for a hassle-free vacation.

Your battery is more likely to drain quickly in a cold environment. So it would be best if you recharge your battery from time to time. You can charge your battery in the lower part of the trail where you spend your night, but as you reach higher, there is a low chance to recharge your battery. You must pay an additional fee if a charging service is available because the lodge uses solar energy to run the electricity.

However, you can bring a spare battery for your camera and other devices, so you would not need to worry about charging it frequently. There might be a power cut or low voltage, so it will be best to carry the portable power bank.

As traveling through high-altitude regions, assessing your health and fitness is crucial. Every trekker’s experience is made safer and more comfortable thanks to it.

Due to our conviction that children benefit from nature in various ways, we are pleased to welcome you and your family to the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek. With a professional guide, the trek can be done smoothly. However, we would not suggest bringing kids who are too young (less than 8 years old) to go hiking at high altitudes.

For at least three months, prepare your kids for this trek by having them practice easy exercises and breathing techniques. Please let us know if you require a kid carry service during the inquiry process.

Due to the party size, we offer you a very affordable price on a fixed departure. The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking program will be revised if the group criteria are not met, which will change the price, including terms and conditions.

Note: We do not add or deduct the activities on the program of fixed departure. Please get in touch with us for the unique customized package if you create your itinerary rather than taking part in a fixed departure. Our team will happily assist you in your journey to Manaslu Tsum Valley with their experienced advice and recommendations.

We highly suggest you engage in physical activities three months before the trip to prepare yourself physically and mentally. Additionally, we offer the Soldhunga Hike as part of our quick acclimation training trip. You can utilize this hike as a very small preview of what to expect on your main journey through the existence of the central Himalayas.

We request that you ask our ground team in Kathmandu for assistance in arranging day tours around the city. If you still have time a few days or a week after the trek, we can also set up one of the following quick relaxation trips. Feel free to pick the one you think will best suit your interests.

  • Pokhara
  • Lumbini
  • Ghandruk
  • Chitwan Safari

These additional vacation days were planned with the idea that you would want to relax after a challenging and long trek rather than go on hiking again. Please let us know if there are any other destinations you would prefer over these.

Best experince with Nepal Holiday!

The airport pickup was very welcoming and the hotel transfer was quick too. We hotel in Kathmandu we are staying in was the International Guest House. The hotel was average but the service was great.

Nepal Holiday provided us with the best trip guide to make our trip successful. I would like to recommend the outdoor service of Nepal Holiday to other friends.
