MANASLU TSUM VALLEY TREK - 23 DAYS

An epic adventure exploring the iconic Mt. Manaslu region and the vast Tsum Valley (Hidden Valley).

This trek takes you around the enormous Mt. Manaslu (8th highest mountain in the world at 8156m)  and through the extensive reaches of Tsum Valley located at an altitude of 1905 to 5093 meters, rich in Tibetan culture, traditions, and ancient art and mostly untouched by modern civilization. 

On this trek, you will be exposed to the ancient traditions of Tibetan Buddhism while admiring their unique daily rituals and lifestyle in these far-off and relatively untouched regions of Nepal. 

Tsum Valley is bounded by Boudha Himal and Himal Chuli in the west, Ganesh Himal in the south and Siring Himal (7187m) in the north. The trail passes through two significant villages in the region, Chumling (Lower Tsum) and Chhaikampar (Upper Tsum). The valley is rich in Tibetan culture with numerous mani walls, chortens and prayer flags adorning the trail and is home to some of the holiest of Tibetan monasteries where the famous sages Guru Rinpoche and the Tibetan philosopher Milarepa once worshipped in nearby caves. It is a place where the trekker can discover oneself and discover peace through meditation. 

We initially drive from Kathmandu to Arughat where our trek begins.  The trail takes us past the ever-present cultivated fields and through small villages as we traverse the Budhi Gandaki Valley next to the river until we reach Lapubesi Village. The trail takes us to the therapeutic hot springs of Tatopani passing through forests. It is not long before you can see the vast mountain ranges, such as Sringi Himal on the way to Philim. We pass Chumling Village and then follow the trail to Gumba Lungdang Pass while walking through pine and rhododendron forests before we have to cross Siyar Khola (river).  We then head to the Ganesh Himal Base Camp and on to Lokpa. The trail then takes us to Lokpa, Ghap to Lho as we pass Gurung and Thakali villages. At Samagaun we stop for the day to better acclimatize before heading to higher altitudes. Leaving Samagaun we ascend to Samdo, Dharamsala and cross the Larke La Pass (5106m) and on to Chame where the trek ends.

You can rest at your hotel or stroll around Thamel and do some last-minute shopping and take in the sights. In the evening there will be a welcome dinner and a short briefing.
After breakfast, you will meet your trekking leader when he will go over what is required for the trek, such as your Manaslu & Tsum Valley Restricted area trekking permit. You will also need 3 passport size photos and a copy of your travel insurance policy. The rest of the day is free and will allow you to explore Kathmandu and visit many famous landmarks, such as Swayambhunath, Bouddhanath, Pashupatinath, and Kathmandu’s Durbar Square.

Our trek today traverses a mule track and ascends on a breathtaking path cut into the face of the cliff, then descends to Lapubesi (880m). Caution is required here! We then continue to Nauli Khola, crossing a suspension bridge on the way and then take the trail beside the Budi Gandaki River before reaching Machha Khola (900m).

Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Our route today follows the river to Khorlabesi and the tepid spring at Tatopani (meaning hot water) (930m), and then continues on the eastern bank of the Budi Gandaki River to Doban, Thulo Dunga and Yara Bagar (1370m). The trail zigzags across the river with several suspension bridges to cross before reaching the entrance gate to Manaslu Conservation Area and Jagat (1410m), with its unique flagstone village square. Permits are checked by authorities. Sherpa Expedition & Trekking will check that the route is passable, and may suggest we take an alternative route taking a much higher path on the east side of the river before descending to the old trail near Doban. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today we head off on a 6-hour trek, first reaching Salleri where we have magnificent views of Mount Sringi before descending to Sirdibas, a traditional Buddhist village. The trail continues until we reach Lokpa Village, just north of Philim and then go through Ekle Bhatti and climb to a ridge along a trail through a pine forest. We come to a junction where we take the trail heading to Tsum Valley. We stay the night at Lokpa.
Today we have a 5-hour trek ahead of us to Tsum Valley. The first sights of Tsum Valley appear as we head down to along with mountain Chumling Village. We then climb up to Ripchet and a short time later reach the authentic Buddhist village of Chumling, well known for its ancient monastery, traditional Tibetan style houses, prayer flags, mani walls, and its stone-paved streets. We stay here overnight.
Today we start our 5-hour trek by crossing a suspension bridge where we have amazing views of the Ganesh Himal. The trail continues and takes us past Rainjam and across Seru Khola before arriving at Gho Village. After a total of 5 to 6 hours trekking, we reach Chokhangparo Village from where we have views of Himalchuli (7893m) and Ganesh Himal (7140m). We stay here tonight. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today’s trek of 6 to 7 hours follows the trail to Rachen Gompa and to the Shir Khola (river). After leaving the river we pass by Phurbe and Pangdun villages before arriving at Nile where we stay the night. Mu Gompa is the largest monastery in the region and the highest point in the Tsum Valley. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Our short trek of 4 hours today leads downhill to Chhule and then to Phurbe where it is possible to find Sherpa homestays. We follow the trail along the banks of the Siyar River until reaching a nunnery at Rachen Gompa (3240m). Tonight we stay at Rachen Gompa.
Today we cross a river then pass by the village of Chhokang Paro at which point we descend to Chumling. Prior to reaching here we come to a white monastery and head down to the Siyar Khola (river), a good place to rest and refresh. We stay at Chumling for the night.
Today we have a 6 to 7-hour trek ahead of us as we descend from Chumling to Lokpa after first crossing a suspension bridge. The trail follows a rocky ridge where we have a great view of Sringi Himal. We then pass through Ghatta Khola passing by farms growing maize, millet, potatoes, and vegetables. As we continue we follow the trail along the bank of the Budhi Gandaki passing through a bamboo forest before coming to the Deng River. Tonight we stay at Deng next to the river.
Today we climb beyond the Tom Khola to Longa Chuta and then come into a captivating fir and rhododendron forest filled with birds and Langur monkeys located on the north side of the Buri Gandaki River. We then cross back to the other side of the river before reaching Namrung (2660m), an earlier customs post in the days when this was a route for transporting salt from Tibet. Namrung also suffered extensive damage from the 2015 earthquake, but today it has been restored to its previous charm.
Our trek today is about 5 hours and along the way, we have spectacular views of Sringi and Ganesh Himal. The village of Namrung is where from here on you will see mostly Tibetan villages and their religious symbols and monasteries. As the trail continues we will pass through forests and farmlands where barley is grown on the terraced hillsides. The trail starts to expose the giant peak of Manaslu right up to Lho Gham Village where we stay the night. In the morning we have a great opportunity of capturing the mountain views from our lodge or the Gompa.
Today the trail passes through several Tibetan villages and past Gompas. After a 4 hour trek we reach Samagaun where we will stop and relax and get used to the higher altitudes. While here we can explore the village and enjoy the welcoming smiling faces of the people. The architecture here is distinctly Tibetan and their costumes reflect their Tibetan origins. We can also take a short hike up to a Gompa above the town or wander the streets and chit-chat with the locals – a very heartwarming experience. Tonight we stay at Samagaun.
At these higher altitudes it is necessary to get acclimatized, for at least one day, before attempting climbs to higher altitudes. Health specialists suggest that you move about and don’t sit idly. A good way to stay active is to explore the Gompa at Pugyen (4070m), a one day hike that leaves the trail between Syaula and Sama. If time permits, it is possible for you to carry on up this valley to the rugged rocks and terrain of the Pugin glacier. Another option is a trip to the lake at Birendra Tal (3450m) and a demanding ascent to Manaslu Base Camp (4900m). It is believed that north of Birendra Tal is Milarepa's Cave (famous Buddha) claimed to have been used as a meditation retreat by the Buddhist saint. Breakfast, lunch & dinner.
Today the trail descends and heads back to the Buri Gandaki River passing the junction of Birendra Tal and Manaslu Base Camp. The valley the expands before reaching Kermo Khadka and then continuing to the white Kani Gateway signaling the entrance to Samdo (3860m). If time permits we may trek to the peak above the village for impressive views of Mount Manaslu. If it is necessary to further acclimatize, there is a 6 t0 7 hour trek climbing 640m to the moraine of the Fukang Glacier, where you will be rewarded with far-reaching views towards several passes used by locals to cross over into Tibet. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
The trail today crosses ridges and across wooden bridges over the Budi Gandaki River. After crossing two rivers we come to Larkya Glacier and then climb to Larke Phedi (4450m) meters. Tonight we stay at Dharamsala..
Today’s trek is about 8 to 9 hours but first starts with a short climb to the north side of Larkya Glacier. From this vantage point, we have excellent views of Cho Danda and Larkya Peak. The climb to the Larkya La (5100m) pass initially is quite a gradual ascent but gradually becomes steeper as we reach the pass. After arriving at the top of the pass we are blessed with incredible panorama views of various mountain ranges. The descent from the pass is equally physically demanding. We soon arrive at Bhimthang where we stay the night in a teahouse.
Today we have awesome views of Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, Himlung Himal and Cheo Himal along with views to the valley and forests below. We cross the Dudh Khola (river) and trek through rhododendron forests, and past the village of Karche (2785m) which you will find is the highest farmland in the region. We stop for a brief rest at Gho Village before making our way to our overnight stop at Tilje.
A 6 to 7 hour trek today along a stony trail, across a ridge and through Tibetan villages eventually sees us descending to the Marsyangdi Valley and further on to Dharapani where we connect with the classic Annapurna trail. We pass through Karte Village and cross the Marsyangdi Khola (river), past Mani walls and enter the village of Tal and finally reach Chamche where we stay the night.
Today we drive back by public transport or private vehicle to Kathmandu following the Marsyangdi and Trishuli rivers and passing through Besisahar Village, the district headquarter of Lamjung Province. This evening in Kathmandu we have a celebration dinner catered for by Sherpa Expedition & Trekking where we can look back on our adventure into this remote and pristine region of Nepal.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfortable and better quality teahouses at lower altitudes. It should be noted that at higher elevations the quality of accommodation may not be as good, with more basic rooms with the bare necessities.

Meals during the trek

In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food in the mountainous regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We take the bus from Besisahar to Kathmandu. In the past Arughat used to be the starting point of the trek but nowadays, due to better road conditions we can travel by bus direct to the Soti Khola. We will travel along secondary (rough) roads all the way to Soti Khola by local bus and from Dharapani to Besisahar we will be traveling by private jeep

Guide and Porter on the trek

We provide you trained & certified trekking guides and porters who will take care of all logistics and a porter for every two trekkers who will each carry about 20 kg (10 kg for each trekker). An experienced guide and porter will be the difference between success and failure. They will also save you from taking unnecessary risks during poor weather conditions.

Physical fitness

Some days can be challenging where you often have to walk 6-8 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

Best season to travel

 The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is usually done in autumn (Sept. to November) and spring (March to May)  when you are much more likely to get to have crystal clear views of the mountains and can also enjoy the lush vegetation in the lower regions of the trail - particularly during spring..

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

Don't skip the acclimatization days. Better to continue with Diamox (if any symptoms show up). Drink Garlic Soup. In the higher elevation, there is less oxygen in the air and this is more so while crossing high passes. Our expert guides will advise you on how to avoid AMS and treat it when/ if required.

As Manaslu Tsum Valley has recently gained popularity among trekkers, not many facilities are available on the trails. Due to its isolation and off-road trails, the region is not yet connected to the outer world via proper roads. So, you will need to take local buses or hire a private jeep to reach the starting point of the trek to Arughat or Sotikhola. A local bus would cost around US $10 per person whereas a jeep would cost between $150 and $200 each way but is worth the convenience than the packed buses. If you are traveling in a group, the cost can be shared by all and would be around $30 per person. The same rate would apply to your return trip from Tal or Besisahar to Kathmandu.
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will provide one porter for two trekkers to carry 20 kgs of luggage (maximum 10 kg for each trekker). Please be sure your porters are not overloaded because they do not carry only your equipment but also lift your spirit to reach new heights, and your love, affection, and generosity can be the reason for them to work hard to take you to your destination.
Garlic soup is a must while trekking. Sherpa Expedition and Trekking recommend trekkers to drink green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon ginger tea and drink at least 2-4 liters of water a day. However, it is better to avoid alcohol and alcoholic beverages, caffeinated items, and hot-chocolates at high altitude.
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking also encourage to avoid dairy and cheesy items and strongly suggest not to consume them during the trek. Our packages are suitable for both vegan and vegetarians.
Your guide and porters are a big reason why you got a chance to feel something very few can have. Apart from guiding and carrying your necessities and being mindful of your safety, they want to see you happily succeeded more than anyone like family and help you successfully complete the trek safely. So, your tips reflect gratitude towards them. So, tipping is a recommended culture for porters and guide in Nepal as a gesture of thankfulness.
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will introduce dozens of shops selling knock-off gear in Kathmandu. You can also barter those gears at the knock-off places but be sure you keep the receipt safely. Moreover, you can rent the needed gears if you do not want to buy them.
You can have WiFi a few places such as Namrung, Lho, Samagaun, Bhimthang, Dharapni, etc.
ATM services are not available only during the trekking. SO be sure you carry enough cash with you.
