Explore the “Hidden Valley of Happiness”, Tsum valley, with the Manaslu Trekking with Tsum Valley trekking adventure and experience the remoteness and secluded solidarity of this newly opened trekking route. A world of its own, the Buddhism influenced Tsum valley used to be an isolated region which was opened since 2008 for the trekking purpose. Unique cultural and traditional values, close view of the colossal mountains, hamlets and gorges, chortens and Mani walls along with the biodiversity of the Manaslu and Tsum region, lush villages and the legacy of ancient Himalayan civilization unaltered till date (through art, religion, culture, values, customs and philosophies of living) makes this trek distinct from other routes. This hidden gem of Tsum valley is also marked with the Buddhist stupas that are erected to ward off evils and Mani walls (stones with carved mantras). The Tsum valley was first described by Tibetan saint Guru Rimpoche and Milarepa, another Buddhist saint meditated in this valley. A visit to one of the eight sacred Buddhism valleys of the inner Himalaya, Tsum Valley Trek has established itself as an incredible and unique trekking option in a relatively short period of time.

Manaslu Trekking with Tsum Valley starts with the exploration of the culturally vibrant Kathmandu valley and strolling around the heritages including the Hindu architecture of Pashupatinath Temple, medieval architecture of Patan Durbar Square and Buddhist shrines of Bouddhanath Stupa and Monkey Temple (Swayambhunath). After the tour of the UNESCO Heritage Sites, we start the actual walking from Sotikhola to Machha Khola. Exploring through the settlements of Thulo Dhungga, Philim we reach the hidden valley, the Tsum valley. After decoding the once mysterious valley, we traverse through the lively villages. Past the foothills of Bihi village, the interesting village of Lihi (hosts the houses built adjacent to each other in a row), the settlements of Samagaun (the village closest to Manaslu Base Camp), Samdo (village located just under Samdo Peak and Samdo glacier) and Dharmashala (a wide gradual mountain slope with campsite) we reach the difficult Larke La Pass (5160m). Grassy meadow in Bhimtang and villages of Tilije, Tal, Syange and Besisahar completes our expedition. In the initial sections of our trek to regions of Manaslu and Tsum valley we experience the splendor of Budhi Gandaki valley, dense forests, terraced hills, while the later part offers the magical experience of ancient monasteries and stupas such as Mu Gompa and Rachen Gompa, breathtaking views of mountains, Tibetan influenced cultures and well preserved traditions. Everything this trek offers creates a striking memory for the lifetime to the trekkers.

Manaslu Trekking with Tsum Valley demands physically fit trekkers with a passion towards trekking and exploration, mental endurance with a cautious planning. Luxury Holiday Trek is determined to make this experience of you a memorable one.
