Heading up to the mountains is always an answer if one wants to have some peaceful time in nature. Manaslu with Tsum Valley Trek is a perfect getaway for a person who is not a big fan of being around the crowd. Opened in the early ‘90s, Manaslu Circuit welcomes relatively fewer trekkers than the other trekking circuits of Nepal. Also, Tsum Valley is another region of Nepal that is not too famous among the trekkers in Nepal. Until 2008, no foreigners were allowed to enter the sacred valley of Tsum. So, Manaslu with Tsum Valley Trek is a trekking package suitable for trekkers who look to stay away from the crowd and explore the unexplored.

Manaslu with Tsum Valley Trek also features the trek through Larkya La Pass (5160m) which hosts a breathtaking view of the Himalayas. The trekkers will trek along the Budhi Gandaki River before entering the “hidden valley” of Tsum via secluded villages of Namrung, Samagaon, Samdo, Lho, and other small beautiful villages. Manaslu with Tsum Valley Trek also offers a chance to trek across glacial lakes of Larkya, Pungkar Tal, and Birendra Tal, along with majestic waterfalls, lush Himalayan forests, steep trails, Chortens, Mani walls, and ridges filled with Buddhist prayer flags.
