Tsum Manaslu Trek is a unique trek for those trekkers who want to explore both the Tsum Valley and Manaslu Region within 17 days instead of 21 days of the regular trekking. During your tour, you can experience the majestic views of Ganesh Himal, explore the exotic Tsum Valley, and walk the scenic routes of Manaslu trekking. We provide helicopter charter service from Kathmandu to the remote and rugged Tsum Valley with fabulous views of Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Annapurna, and a host of other snowcapped mountains and iconic villages on the way.
The trek takes about 11-12 days to explore the Tsum Valley and Manaslu trail before taking a breathtaking journey over the 5160 meter Larke La pass. With spectacular views of over 8000-meter mountains, the hike takes approximately 11-12 days in an off-the-beaten-path region of northern Nepal. As we pass through friendly villages and visit secluded Buddhist monasteries tucked away in a valley carved out by glaciers, we will immerse ourselves in the peaceful fusion of Nepalese and Tibetan culture. This country’s pristine areas make this an opportunity our clients should not miss.
