The Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek combines two challenging, spectacular treks in what is arguably the most beautiful part of the Himalayas. This long trek, which includes more than two weeks of walking, offers panoramic vistas, high mountain passes, remote villages and spiritual centers with colorful monasteries and chhortens.

The trek begins on the Manaslu Circuit with a gradual walk along the Budi Gandaki river leading you to the Tsum Valley, where we visit the popular Mu Gompa and Rachen Gompa monasteries. We return to the Manaslu circuit trail and eventually reach the spiritual center of Sama Gaon with its monasteries and fluttering prayer flags, where we have a rest and acclimatization day. Then comes the traverse of the challenging Larke Pass (5,160m), with its unobstructed views of high Himalayan peaks, glaciers and glacial lakes.

We then descend to the Marshyangdi River valley and ultimately drive back to Kathmandu. For more information on the outstanding Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek, please contact Nepal Hiking Trek.
