Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking - 23 Days

Tsum Valley called the "hidden valley", Tsum valley is located in the remote northern Gorkha region of Nepal. The valley is nestled between Baudha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the north. Because of its distant location and inadequate information and promotion, the trekking route to this region was only opened in October, 2007.

The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is more remote and spectacular than many, with rough steep tracks and less than luxurious accommodation. It is ethnically fascinating with strong continuing links to Tibet in the upper Buri Gandaki (called Nupri ‘the western mountains’) and the Tsum Valley and even has the Larkya La (5160m) as a challenge. The views of Mt Manaslu, eighth highest mountain in the world, are marvelous and close. The trek around Manaslu can be done as a lodge trek while even Tsum valley now has several lodges, good home stays and toilets in most places.

The remote Tsum Valley side-trip should not be missed. Tsum Valley trips is the absolute highlight, with strong, friendly, hospitable people, a living Buddhist culture and untouched wildlife because of Buddhist prohibitions on hunting. Tsum comes from the Tibetan work ‘Tsombo’, which means vivid and we can only agree. The people are poor, since they have been bypassed by development for centuries, but this means their unique culture has remained intact. However a road from China is already pegged out and will cause rapid change.

Tsum is said to be a beyul, one of the hidden valleys which Padmasambhava blessed as refuges to be discovered when the planet is approaching destruction and the world becomes too corrupt for spiritual practice. They are valleys reminiscent of paradise, which can only be reached with enormous hardship.
