Moderate trekking in Manaslu Region, which takes you into the most beautiful and untouched villages lying in the closest proximity to Tibet.
Tsum Valley Trekking, the least explored trekking destination in Manaslu Region is a gem. A beautiful valley ringed by the Himalayan giants Tsum is dotted with sacred highland monasteries. The trekking to Tsum Valley begins from Arughat just as the Manaslu Circuit Trek begins. Half of the way during Tsum Valley Trek traverses through the trails of Manaslu Circuit and deviates at Philim towards the Lower Tsum.
Since Tsum Valley Trekking is based on Homestay accommodations, the trekking to this region at times asks to be content with basic arrangements of food and lodges unlike other trekking regions, which are these days full of modern services and amenities. This moderately adventurous trek in Nepal highlights two biggest monasteries in the region, Mu Gompa and Rachen Gompa, which are the schools for young monks and nuns. The remote land of Tsum valley is also an integral pilgrimage route because it is believed that the great Buddhist Guru Milerapa had meditated once on the mountain caves of this valley. The trails of Tsum Valley Trek are one of the best sections of Great Himalayan Trail of Nepal, which runs at the foothills of Himalayas from east to west.
Overall, Tsum Valley Trekking has wonderful aspects of nature and culture. The trekking caters the exceptional beauty of alpine nature. The views of Manaslu and Ganesh Himalayan Ranges throughout the trails energize trekkers to walk further. Similarly, the cultural aspects of this valley are so authentic that trekkers shed tears on seeing the lifestyle of the people living in the region, which is so close to nomadism.
