Tsum Valley is known as Hidden Valley. It lies on the northern part of Manaslu on the Nepal-Tibet border. The lifestyle of the local may surprise most of us as all the brothers in the family are married to a single girl; you may call this a practice of polyandry. Each trekking in Nepal will give you a different experience here. You will be walking along the Nepal-Tibet border in this Tsum valley Manaslu circuit trek.
However, you can do Tsum valley trek at once and do the rest of Manaslu circuit trek next time or vice-versa. But it’s not a good idea to trek the same region twice if we can do at once too. But if you don’t have 18-19 days of holidays to spend on trekking then its also better to do just one either Tsum valley only or Manaslu circuit only.
You will be enjoying the view of the majestic surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. The dense forests in the area are homes to many rare animals. You won’t be able to hunt, fish and animal slaughtering. If you are lucky, you will get to see Himalayan Thar and Blue Sheep.
We shall start our journey of Tsum valley Manaslu circuit trek from Soti Khola, and we will be following the Budigandaki River as you start hiking up. Along the way, we will be able to admire different types of flowers. Most of the time, you will also be seeing monkeys.
Some path will be tough as there are rocky trails. We will also be able to visit the ancient monastery. You will be getting an opportunity to see the magnificent view of the holey lake, Ganesh Himal. We will be planning a special trip for you to trek to Tsum Valley Manaslu circuit trek. Kindly contact us for more details.
