trip overview

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is a wonderful combination of rich cultural heritage, unmatched Himalayan Tibetan culture, other different cultures, and the newly busy trekking region along the Great Himalayan Trail. Manaslu Larke Pass 5,160mtrs trek is developing a trekking trail. Manaslu Trekking needs special permits to enter this region to undertake the magnificent circuit.

Tsum Valley Trek can be a great alternative to the Annapurna circuit trek. Manaslu Tsum Valley trek route provides many tea house treks along the trail; therefore, camping is not necessary unless one goes off the track. As well Tsum Valley offers traditional and remote trekking. Because of the non-violent conservation area and killing of animals is banding.

In Nepal, this is an absolute highlight, with strong, friendly, hospitable people living in Buddhist culture. And not touching wildlife because of Buddhist prohibition on hunting. Tsum comes from the Tibetan word ‘Tsombo’, which means vivid. We can agree that their unique culture has remained intact in these spectacular places.

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek has attractive views of Shringi Himal 7,161mtrs, Himalchuli 7,893mtrs, and Nagdi Chuli (Peak 29) 7,871mtrs. Including Mt. Manaslu 8,163mtrs, Ganesh Himal II 7,118mtrs, Simnang Himal 6,251mtrs, Himlung Himal 7,126mtrs, and other beautiful peaks. Trek provides a unique landscape, many species of birds, a diversity of plants, mammals, waterfalls, ancient Gumba, wildlife, and flora fauna.

Descend past four frozen lakes and make a final tiring climb to the left up to Larkya La 5,160mtrs, the top is marked by prayer flags hanging on snow poles.

It takes about 3-4 hours to reach the pass and it can be very cold and windy with some risk if you pass in the late afternoon.

Manaslu and tsum valley October 2023

Very type and most professional assistance for our trekking trip. We had fantastic information for the Manaslu circuit and Tsum Valley trek: Very experienced, communicative, and very flexible. Our information prepared a flawlessly easy day trip throughout the height season. It used to be a first-rate trip, entailing a deep dive into the subculture and superb mountain views. It used to be a lot of exciting and can’t get any better!

We recommended Himalaya Guide Nepal and Bashu Gurung.

20 days – Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit Trek – an extraordinary experience! April 2023

The trek I’ve been wanting to take for a very long time is the Tsum Valley and Manaslu trek in Nepal (20 days: Kathmandu to Kathmandu, approximately 180 km + 30–50 km of trekking). a difficult, difficult, yet breathtakingly magnificent walk filled with history and other civilizations. There was enough opportunity to quietly communicate with the lovely & kind people and learn about their everyday lives, families, customs, etc. because it wasn’t too crowded and the tea houses were empty. Please be aware that the entire path is only accessible by mule or horseback, which causes some of the trail to be covered in fly-infested feces. Additionally, it takes between 20 and 45 minutes to traverse dangerous landslides at 4-5 locations.

The Owner of Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt Ltd., Mr. Chandra Gurung, did a good job organizing the hike. He spoke with courtesy and effectiveness. He made sure that the trek’s itinerary was safe, suitable for my age, level of fitness, and demands, and flexible enough to accommodate changes in the weather and other factors along the way. Even though he has a tiny business, Mr. Chandra Gurung puts a lot of effort into creating good itineraries and experiences for his clients. He provided me with a duffel bag, a high-quality down jacket, a sleeping bag, and a well-organized medical kit (the only team on the entire walk had a complete kit plus an oximeter). When my debit card was lost, he graciously organized for local money. He met me at the hotel after the hike and provide me with a beautiful framed certificate.

Mr. Kumar BK served as my hiking guide. Just 28 years old, kind, professional, and totally committed to responsible and safe trekking! Excellent and compassionate attitude; never left my side from beginning to end while patiently allowing me to stop and take in the events. He imparted his understanding of the people, their culture, flora, and fauna. Every evening, Mr. Kumar gave me a briefing on the plans for the following day, suggested revisions as needed, and recorded the day’s events, including the medical status (general health, oxygen levels, etc.). Most significantly, Mr. Kumar consistently arrived on time, provided service with a smile, and doesn’t use tobacco or alcohol. What a fantastic person and an authentic trek leader. Without question, Mr. Kumar has a promising future.

Mr. Lakpa Tamang was my trek porter. He was considerate, kind, and courteous. He looked out for me the entire walk, keeping a close eye on me and supporting me through the challenging parts. Before leaving, Dad examined my room every day to make sure nothing was left behind. Most essential, Mr. Lakpa abstains from drinking and smoking.

I heartily endorse Mr. Chandra Gurung and his staff at Himalaya Guide Nepal. As was previously stated, this is a small group, so if you’re ready to be patient and respectful, you can count on a beautiful walk. I’d unquestionably go on another expedition with them.

Manaslu Circuit and Tsum Valley Mar 2023

We booked the 17 days Trek Manaslu Circuit with Tsum Valley with Himalaya Guide Nepal for March 2023. We had a fantastic time and can’t say enough good things about the agency. The implementation, organization, and communication were all excellent. Particularly outstanding was our guide Dinesh, who accompanied us on the hike with skill, care, and attention. We would most definitely go on another hike with him and the company!

Spectacular Tsum Valley Manaslu Trek October 2022

Spectacular!! I traveled to Nepal with a party of five men between October and November to trek the Tsum Valley and Manaslu circuit. Amazing in every way. This was my first trip to Nepal, and Chandra’s Himalaya Guide Nepal service was excellent. Chandra handled all of our travel arrangements, which made the vacation that much better because I didn’t have to worry about the small details. The buddies were great, the vacation was flawless, and our guide Bashu was exceptional.

From the minute we landed in Katmandu till we returned to the airport to go home, Chandra managed the procedure flawlessly. Chandra set up a two-day tour with guide Manraj, and the amount of information he provided about the city and, more significantly, the cultures of Nepal, left my head spinning. It was just a truly incredible two days.

Bashu, our trekking guide, was outstanding. He watched over every aspect of our journey and ensured that it was both safe and entertaining. Bashu helped us experience the local cultures, which is something I love to do, by sharing his vast knowledge with us along the route. His empathy for us was quite clear, and he had such a pleasant demeanor. We all enjoyed being around one another. I can’t say enough good things about Bashu, as my travel companions have already said. I won’t soon forget this journey thanks to him.

The Nepali people are nice and gracious. Everywhere we went, people treated us incredibly graciously and kindly. Thanks to the people, I have so many wonderful memories.

I intend to go on another trek when I eventually go back, and I’ll definitely use Himalaya Guide Nepal’s top-notch services. I wholeheartedly endorse them.

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek – Oct/Nov 2022

My second trek with Himalaya Guide Nepal went exactly as I had hoped it would, and the entire Manaslu & Tsum Valley journey was great. It was quite simple to plan the entire trip with Chandra via email, and once we arrived, from the moment we were picked up at the airport until we departed Nepal, all of our requirements were taken care of. Prior to our hike, Chandra arranged for our five-person party to have a two-day guided tour of Kathmandu, during which we saw the city’s historical districts and numerous Buddhist and Hindu temples. Excellent city exploration over two days.

I have nothing but praise for Bashu, our trekking guide. He took excellent care of us and made sure we had a fantastic experience the entire walk. I have trekked twice with Himalaya Guide Nepal, and I heartily endorse them to anyone thinking of visiting Nepal. Simply put, they are the greatest.

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek 2022

Wonderful experience! Friends urged me to join them on the trip they had planned early 2022 in August 2022. They used Himalaya Guide Nepal for their journey in Nepal in 2018 as well. Even though it was so late, the guide service was kind and let me join the trip. Chandra, our trip planner, did a great job of creating a well-considered schedule. Chandra included two days of escorted sightseeing in Kathmandu before the hike began per my companions’ request. Manraj, our tour guide for these two days, was very educated about Nepali history and gave us a lot of information about the people and places we saw in Kathmandu.

Bashudev led us on a 19-day journey via the Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit. Bashu did a great job of keeping us safe, making lodging arrangements in the area, and keeping in touch with everyone. I have nothing but praise for Bashu.

If you are thinking about going on a hike in Nepal, I highly recommend Himalaya Guide Nepal.

Trip of a Lifetime November 2022

I had always wanted to visit Nepal. I leaped at the chance when my father-in-law asked me to go with him on a trip there. He had previously traveled to Nepal and completed the Annapurna trip with Himalaya Guide. I’m delighted he chose to utilize them once more for our journey on the Manaslu tsum valley hike. We never had to worry about rides, accommodations, meals, guides, or anything else from the time we landed in Kathmandu until the day we departed. We only had to worry about having a good time and taking in all the beauty that Nepal had to offer. My sincere gratitude goes out to Bashu, our guide, who kept us safe and looked after us for 19 days.

I had a fantastic time and heartily endorse this firm to anyone interested in visiting Nepal. If/when I ever go back to Nepal, I’ll absolutely hire them. Chandra (Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd.) and Bashu, thank you.

An amazing Manaslu and Tsum valley Circuit Trek

Amazing Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek, I worked with Chandra at Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. and he did an excellent job helping me plan the trip and managing all the paperwork despite the holidays. They picked me up at the airport and set me up in an excellent hotel on the north side of Thamel, and I was very happy about this. This trek itself was absolutely amazing, and Raju my guide was excellent.

He helped me a great deal with communication and finding all the fun things to do at each location along the way as well as being very knowledgeable of the history, geology, and botany of the region. The trail itself is challenging but in excellent condition, and I had no concerns about anything along the way. The tea houses that Raju selected were excellent, and the return to Kathmandu went well. Overall this was an excellent trek with an excellent company which I will highly recommend.

Magical Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

Magical Manaslu Tsum Valley. Trekking in Nepal is magical. What makes it magical is not only the place but the people you meet. And the friends you make along the way. In October and November 2012, we spent three weeks trekking with Chandra Gurung as our guide in the Manaslu and Tsum Valley regions of the Himalaya. Every day he guided us through small villages, high valleys, and beautiful peaks. He watched over us on the trails and made sure. So, we had good food at each stop which kept us healthy and safe. He is a very competent guide and speaks English fluently. His medical training was needed when we had stomach and virus problems. He always put his client’s wishes and happiness first.

His infectious laugh made a long journey easy, and we became very good friends. Because he has good knowledge of the area and familiarity with the locals provided us with a wonderful cultural experience. Because we stayed with families and local teahouses. We can heartily recommend him as a well-educated, warm, and friendly guide who will do everything possible to make your trekking in Nepal a perfect experience. We look forward to the day that we can return and trek with our friends in Nepal.
