“We all need a tonic of wilderness to see the true adventure waiting ahead for us.”

Our Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek commences with a 7-8 hours drive from Kathmandu to Sotikhola. Our Trek is rather parallel to the Manaslu Circuit Trek so it can also be taken as a mixture of both the treks as Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek explores some of the regions that are not touched by the two treks. The valley is rich in ancient art, culture and religion. It adds a richly rewarding extension to the Manaslu trek. Our trekking continues ahead through lush and green landscape to the settlement of Machha Khola. We shall continue going ahead all the way through the bamboo forest; local settlements of Thulo Dhunga and Philim, and narrow Budhi Gandaki gorge to enter the secreted treasured view of Tsum Valley. And Larke La pass with an elevation of 5,160 meter shall be the highest point of our entire trek. During this trek we shall be trekking through the last village in Tsum Valley named Nile at 3361 meters till Mu Gompa at 3700 meters of an altitude. The trekkers will also have the opportunity to learn about the local culture and religion of the people. This trek plunders travelers with amazing experiences of the mountain life style in Tsum Valley and Manaslu along with the unearthing up-close look at the exceptional nature and cultural legacies available in this region. On the way you shall have a visit to the Pungyen Nunnery & Kargyu Chholing Monastery located at Samagaun and get a closer panoramic sight of the eminent Ganesh Himal on this trek. And as we reach the end of our amazing trek we shall start descending from Bhim Thang until we reach Besisahar via Tal and Syange.
