Manaslu circuit – Tsum valley trek is the two combine trekking a section of Manaslu circuit and a portion of Tsum valley trek. The trek is known for its peace and solitude. This trek provides the services of the tea houses and local homestay in quiet remote locations of the western part of Nepal.
This region has been opened for visitors only a few years ago, due to which you have a wonderful chance of having an experience of the unspoiled Manaslu Region. During the trek, you will reach very close to the Tibetan border, with the resemblance to landscapes of Tibet itself. One might even mistake for being in Tibet but there’s a huge mountain range to the north that marks the Nepalese border. You’ll be trekking close to these very foothills of the giant Himalayan peaks.
“Tsum” translates to vividness, and the trace of it can be felt through the trek, especially where you feel the air and thus the life, as described by Guru Rimpoche. He even called it the “Hidden Valley of Happiness”. A Buddhist guru may have called it so for his own reasons, but once you’re here you’ll feel the aura too – especially trekking through the remote and quiet landscapes.
The time spent in this “Hidden Valley of Happiness” will inspire you for months ahead, especially regarding your raw experience with nature and after seeing the simplistic ways of people who call this region home. The beautiful views you’ll have from Larkya-La Pass 5,160m, and the pristine valley itself will be memorable in this program organized by Peace Nepal Treks.
The Trek starts driving from Kathmandu to Barpak Village and walking starts ahead – Larpak (2,200m) – Khorlabensi 970m – Philim (1,570m) – Chumling (2,386m) – Chhokang Paro (3,031m) – Nile (3,361m) – Mu Gompa (3,700m) – Rachen Gompa (3,240m) – Gumba Lungdang (3,200m) – Ganesh Himal Base Camp (4,200m) – Lokpa (2,240m) – Ghap (2,160m) – Lho (3,180m) – Samagaon (3,520m) – Manaslu base camp 4,400m – Samdo (3,875m) – Dharmasala (4,460m) – popular LARKYA LA Pass 5,160m, Bimtang (3,590m – Dharapani (1,963m) – Dharapani to Besisahar – Kathmandu
You’ll be trekking through average Nepali trails, but you’ll need a desire to walk – at least for three weeks. The program is designed to have ample days for acclimatization before trekking further to higher altitudes. You need to walk about 6 to 7 hours each day and need physical fitness for walking for 3 weeks.
Starting from Kathmandu with a local bus ride or private Jeep ride, you will reach Budhi-Gandaki and trek along the rushing river for a couple of days. And the trek joins the popular Annapurna Circuit at Dharapani. Our 3 weeks trek ends here and drives back to Kathmandu from Dharapani.
It’s a tranquil trek that provides an exquisite experience of remote Nepal. Homestay is the norm here, but you can take this opportunity for camping as well – a camping trip in the pristine region of the Himalayas! Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Hiunchuli, and Shringi Himal are some of the peaks you’ll see on this memorable trip to Nepal.
This trek is a restricted area of Nepal and needs to issue a special permit through the government register local trekking company in Kathmandu. There is not allowed to travel on their own. It’s compulsory to travel with at least one guide or one porter services. You need two different special permits – one for Tsum Valley Trek and another for Manaslu Circuit Trek. You also need the Manaslu Conservation entry fees (MCAP) and Annapurna Conservation permit (ACAMP) entry fees.
This program organized by Peace Nepal Treks is a splendid combination of trekking and tea house (homestay) in the quiet remote locations of western Nepal. You will be trekking a section of Manaslu Circuit and also a portion of Tsum Valley, which is known for its peace and solitude.

March/April/May months are called the spring season which is the best for holidays in most of the Himalayas of Nepal. The sky and the weather are very clear and sunny in these months and warmer. The weather forecast will be 20 to 25 degrees till the 3,500m during the daytime. And at night time and in the morning will be colder. But above the 4,500m will be -10 to -15 degrees cold in the morning and at night. Some time will be rainfall in these months. This is the best season for blooming the rhododendron flower in the mountain which is our national flower. There will be many different kinds of natural flora and fauna in the mountain which makes this season beautiful and attractive for tourists in mountains. The tourist comes for trekking/peak climbing and expedition during this season. This is one of the perfect seasons to visit Nepal Mountain to see and take the experiences of walking and climbing mountains.
We called the monsoon months June/July August because of the heavy rainfall in Nepal. Mostly July/August and till mid-September. It’s still possible to do the trek in Mid June which isn’t heavy rain yet. During the monsoon time is difficult to do the trek in mountains and the sky and the weather isn’t visible and difficult to walk during the heavy rain and scare with flooding. Mostly, It’s difficult to do the trek in the Everest region because the flight is not on time. Sometimes, It will take a few days long wait to fly Lukla or long waiting to fly to Kathmandu were lots of chances of missing an international flight. So, During these months, It’s idle to choose dry places for trekking in Nepal, Upper Mustang Trek, and Upper Dolpo Trek. These are the recommended trekking for holidays by Peace Nepal Treks (p Ltd and also we provide our best services for our customer.
Mid-September to Mid December is the best season for mountain holidays in Nepal where ever can choose in the mountain as your timing frame and the budget. We have many different kinds of trekking/peak climbing and Expedition services packages for you. This is one of the most outstanding seasons with a beautiful clear sky and the temperatures will be moderate. These months are the feast and festival time were the biggest Dashain festival/Tihar festival and Chhad festival fall. And also have a long holiday from government and people have time to visit shortly in holidays and to meet friends and relatives around. There is no heavy long rainfall but there is a clear sunny day and warmer on these days. So for it, Nepalese people also visit for short holidays around and the International people come for trekking and peak climbing expedition for long or short holidays. Most of the popular trekking regions will be full of trekkers and quite busy times. Like, mostly busier trekking regions will be the Annapurna region/Everest region and the Langtang region. But there are several less crowded trekking holidays places in Nepal, such as Manaslu circuit trek, Tsum Valley Trek, Upper Dolpo Trek, Mustang Trek, Naar Phu Trek, etc.
December to February are the winter season in Nepal. This season isn’t idle to visit long trekking high altitude trek. This is the season of snowfall in the mountain region above the 4,500m and the temperature will be -30 degrees below which is too frozen and the people of hotel lodges also not staying these months in the higher mountain and they moved to a nearby city or in Kathmandu or in Pokhara. So these months are good to visit short trekking route a week or 10 days only around the Kathmandu city, Ghorepani poon hill, Nagarkot visit, Chitwan National park, Bardia National park, Pokhara city or staying local village homestay, etc. But the sunrise and sunset will be very visible and attractive these months. So the short best trekking is good to visit in Nepal.
While there are no seasonal constraints on traveling to Nepal, different trekking regions are best visited in different seasons. Once you inquire about any trekking itinerary we’ll email you regarding the best season for that particular trek. Nepal for all seasons.

MANASLU TSUM VALLEY TREK 2014 Just to let you know that we had a wonderful trip. Dupsang was a wonderful guide and was friendly, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about the areas we visited (Manaslu tsum valley trek) . Cole in particular appreciated his knowledge of Buddhism. He was very accommodating and flexible to our needs and his command of English was excellent. Thank you again for a wonderful trip and hopefully will see you next year for another trek.

I am writing this letter to thank you for our great time trekking in Manaslu Tsum Valley trek in 2010, as well as to give confidence to other potential trekkers that Peace Nepal Treks in a great company, as I realize it is difficult to select a company from the other side of the world. Perhaps the most sticking thing for me about our time with Peace Nepal Treks was the great atmosphere which surrounded the company. From the very first time we met Nir Lama in Kathmandu, through the entire dura... See moretion of our trek with Prem Lama and Family, and during our time in Nepal after trekking we were treated with heartwarming generosity and genuine friendship. Whether it be dropping round for a cup of Chaia in the Kathmandu office, playing cards with Pancha and Don in the afternoons after trekking, friendly wake up calls with Tatopani, or long conversations with Prem on the trail, everything was conducted with a rare good humour and friendliness. In this, we certainly felt the benefits of the family based company of Peace Nepal Treks, and received something beyond mountain views and efficient service. In my opinion, this feeling which arises from the great people who make up Peace Nepal Treks added vastly to our experience. In a practical sense, our trek was conducted with absolute smoothness. I honestly cannot recall a single incidence of mismanagement in over a month of contact with peace Nepal Treks. Every afternoon, camp would be set up quickly and effortlessly, and would soon be followed with huge dinners of beautiful food. I still consider it a miracle that they were able to cook such nice food. Although perhaps the fact that i gained weight while walking 6 or 7 hours a day is the greatest testimony to the good grub! All organizational matters such as permits, dates, payments, travel advice and transport was organized perfectly. There was never any reluctance to go above and beyond the call of duty for our experience in Nepal. I could continue writing about the great time we had in Nepal for many pages. Instead i will cut to the point and say our time with Peace Nepal Trek was truly extraordinary. I regularly recall our great times in Nepal, and we are planning on returning at the end of the year. I cannot imagine how Trekking could be any better.See less...
