Manaslu Region is located in the Northern Gorkha District. Mt. Manaslu, the world's eighth highest peak, will be closer to you if you do a circuit trek (8163m). Tsum Valley, one of Nepal's hidden treasures, will be visited throughout the journey. Both biologically and culturally, this valley is rich. Tsum Valley's lush and beautiful environment will enthrall you. Tsum Valley trekking, in the meantime, is considered a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage journey that takes you to Nepal's Gorkha region in the north.

The Tsum Valley Trek is a relatively new hiking path in Nepal's Himalayas that attracts many visitors. The primary attractions of this adventurous Tsum valley walk are the many towering snow peaks, beautiful monasteries, mystifying Tibetan cultural kinds of life, hundreds of waterfalls, and intriguing flora and wildlife. Unfortunately, the rough terrain and a lack of lodging options have made the voyage more difficult. As a result, only a few trekkers visit this region each year, making the Tsum Valley trek of 17 days ideal for those seeking solitude and adventure.

As you ascend the Budhi Gandaki River, you'll pass through various intriguing Tibetan communities. During your Tsum Valley trip, you will be immersed in Tibetan Buddhism's warmth and become a part of daily life. In addition, because the entire region has been spared from modernization, you will be able to experience a unique form of civilization. Snowland Adventure is thrilled to provide you with our well-crafted Tsum Valley-17-day itinerary. 

Tsum Valley Trekking is a religious journey to Tsum's pilgrimage valley, framed by the Ganesh, Sringi, and Boudha peaks. The valley's residents, mainly of Tibetan descent, are rich in traditional art, culture, and religion. Trails lead to this isolated hidden paradise, including monasteries, beautiful chortens, mani walls, other decorations, and legends of the yeti.

We drive to Soti Khola the next day after preparing the permission for the restricted region in Tsum Valley, where our journey begins. We walk to MachhaKhola beside the stream and then to Doban over some severe rises and descents. A rough path leads to Philim, with SringiHimal in the background. After passing through Chumling, we arrive in Chhokangparo in the Upper Tsum Valley, where we can witness towering vistas of Ganesh Himal, BoudhaHimal, and HimalChuli. On our way to Nile/Chhule, we stop at PirenPhu (pigeon cave), a holy site with Buddhist paintings, calligraphy, and carved stones, where we may explore. The Mu Gompa, located at 3700 meters, is our next destination, after which we travel to RachenGompa, a nunnery, and then to Dumje. We travel by Samba TingdingChhupyang, a beautiful waterfall, on our way from Dumje to Philim. It takes six hours to walk from Philim to Tatopani, where you may rest in the hot spring. Then we return to SotiKhola the next day and drive to Kathmandu. 

Tsum Valley is a pristine valley in the Manaslu region's northern reaches. This region's terrain provides an excellent walking path for hikers of all ability levels. This hiking path, The area, which was previously designated as a restricted region until 2008, is only 7 hours from Kathmandu's city.

Trekkers will walk through desolate landscapes in the Himalayan foothills during this journey. The vistas of the snow-capped mountains, such as Ganesh Himal, Boudha Himal, Sringi Himal, and others, are breathtaking. In addition, the trail's stunning views of the Himalayan dawn and sunset will enchant you.

This walk takes you across the upper Budhi Gandaki river valley and Tibetan communities such as Chhokangparo, Philim, Lokpa, Nile, and others. Tibetan tradition and culture are abundant in the distant, unknown Tsum Valley. You may see stunning chortens, Buddhist temples, and mani prayer walls along the walk. The cultural part of the walk makes it a one-of-a-kind adventure.

As a result, we are experiencing some difficulties with terrible weather, heavy rain, landslides, highway closures, aircraft delays, and even cancellations for a day. We weren't always able to make it on time due to traffic. Because we can't forecast the weather or other circumstances, it might happen at any time of year.

If all goes well, you'll have a lovely day seeing any of the old city's noteworthy sites.

Manaslu Tsum Valley trek in the Spring

In Nepal, spring is known as Basanta Ritu. The beginning of the year brings the hidden greenery of the hills and woodlands. It's a fresh start for nature, with flower buds filling the woodland walkways.

Avalanches, landslides, and floods are unlikely during this season. March, April, and May are all part of the spring season.

In March

Since March is the season's first month, the entire area welcomes spring. Because the winter has just ended, fresh flower buds may be observed on the woodland walks in the lower region. During this month, the trails will be calm and tranquil, enabling you to experience the natural splendor. You will be able to shoot stunning photographs of nature without being disturbed. This month is ideal for people seeking serenity as well as beautiful surroundings. During this time of year, the frozen lakes begin to thaw, flooding the streams. In addition, many villages that had to go down to the city in the winter will be returning.


Temperature and weather on Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

The weather is calm, and the temperatures are warm, allowing for a clear view of the surroundings. In March, look forward to brilliant blue skies and bright, sunny days.

The air is chilly, and the temperature rises with elevation. In the upper elevations, the temperature ranges from 2 to 8 degrees Celsius throughout this month. The temperature will remain frigid for this entire month, despite the end of the winter season. The lower sections, on the other hand, are warmer than the upper ones.

In April

By April, the entire Manaslu region would be carpeted with vibrant blooms. The second month of the season, when the flowers have bloomed, adds to the taste of your journey. The paths will be crawling with hikers from around the world this month. The views of the hills, landscapes, and valleys are stunning along the route.

During May

May signals the conclusion of the spring season. On the slope, you'll observe the final blooming of spring flowers. As the month transitions from spring to summer in late May, there is a chance of pre-monsoon rain.

In May, you may enjoy both spring and the monsoon at the same time. The roads are just as packed from mid-April to mid-May, so there is less solitude. However, towards the end of the month, the crowd had thinned. Because the expedition takes place in May, both hikers and climbers use these paths. The most significant time to climb Manaslu is now.

During the spring, the difficulty level is moderate. The weather can be severe between early March and May, but everything else is good. It is appropriate for hikers with little technical knowledge because no snow gear is required. 

An autumn trek to Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek

Autumn is the busiest season for trekking on the Manalsu region's trails. In Nepal, it is also known as Sharad Ritu. New types of flowers have bloomed along the woodland walk after the monsoon has stopped. People celebrate the country's largest festival at this time. Because there is no harvesting in the autumn, farmers are also free. In this season, the region of Manaslu exudes a delightful air of dramatic beauty.

The optimum time to hike Manaslu is in the autumn. Autumn is defined by September, October, and November.

In September,

September heralds the start of the lovely autumn season. The month marks the beginning of the shift from the monsoon to autumn. As a result, you may get some light monsoon rain in the first week of September, but it will dry out by the middle of the month. The monsoon rains have left the woodland trails alive with new and rare plant species. It has also washed away contaminants, giving the ecosystem a new lease of life.

In October,

In the autumn season, October is the most exciting and entertaining month. During this period, people celebrate the major holidays of Dashain and Tihar. It is, without a doubt, the most fantastic time to hike Manaslu.

It's also autumn's busiest month, with the Manaslu region's rare and untouched splendor on display. There will be a lot of trekkers visiting these locations. Thus, the routes and lodges will be packed.

In November,

November marks the end of the autumn season. This month marks the beginning of the shift from fall to winter. As the days pass, it becomes colder and dryer.

It is the most OK month to walk the Manaslu Circuit. November is the driest month of the season, with no rain or snow. However, compared to the other months of the season, this is the most incredible month. You get to enjoy the hike while walking comfortably and without sweating. Throughout your journey, you will be surrounded by breathtaking vistas of nature, which will keep you on edge with their magnificence.

    The Tsum Valley Trek is a somewhat challenging hike. This high-altitude hike also entails climbing uphill and downhill on steep, narrow trails. As a result, you should plan and acclimate to avoid altitude sickness on the trip. This breathtaking excursion may be had for a modest fee. The Manaslu Trip is a moderately difficult trek appropriate for both beginners and experts. Traveling on the Manaslu Circuit Trek at the best time may be exciting and pleasant. However, there will be several challenges on this journey.

  • Because trekking in the Manaslu region is limited, trekkers should use a government-approved guide and agency to get Manaslu region permits to hike.

  • You'll need the Manaslu conservation area, Annapurna conservation area, and Manaslu special permits if you're walking the Manaslu circuit. However, if you want to combine Tsum Valley with other activities, you'll need a Tsum Valley special permit. Please check our blogs for additional information.

  • On the Manaslu Tsum Trek, there is wifi and phone service.

    Wi-Fi is available at the majority of tea shops. If you need to contact relatives or friends back home, tea shops provide SAT phones for a small price that may be used to call home. The local phone is hardly functional on this adventure. Nepal Telecom offers better coverage than Ncell in the Manaslu region.

  • The Manaslu tsum trek takes you through a relatively new and underdeveloped rural Nepal region. You'll spend a lot of time in nature, away from the daily grind, because settlements are few and far between.

  • Apart from Gumpa Lungdang and Dharmasala, you will have access to electricity at all locations where you may charge your batteries. For a full charge, it will cost you a few dollars.

  • No special training is required for the Manaslu trip. However, having some trekking experience before visiting Nepal can put you in a better position because Nepal's landscape is rough and challenging to navigate.

  • Vomiting, fever, headache, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, weakness, frequent waking, difficulty breathing, feeling too cold, diarrhea, and other altitude symptoms might occur.

  • There are basic tea houses throughout the entire Manaslu Circuit Part and homestay services in the Tsum Valley, where you can stay and eat, as Manaslu is a recently opened tea house trek. You must stay at both the tea house and the homestay. However, in modern times, tea houses are also present in Tsum Valley.

  • Homestay is a type of travel or study abroad program that enables guests to book accommodations with local families. Any lodging used by the locals is quite poor. and must stay with local families and eat in local restaurants. Additionally, lodging in a tea house is significantly better; you have a separate room as well as a shared or private bathroom and toilet. Today, however, the Tsum Valley section also offers the option of a tea house.

  • You can purchase a bottle of mineral water for each tea house along the Tsum Valley Trek for clean drinking water. However, it would be preferable to use any instruments (SteriPEN Ultra/Filter/Iodine Tablets/chlorine) to purify water due to environmental concerns. Every tea shop sells raw water, which you can filter on your own. Or you have the option to purchase boiling filter water. The same goes for drinking water and toilet paper, all of which are extra costs.
