Tsum Valley Trek is a comprehensive 25 Days trip package into the Manaslu Conservation Area of Nepal. It is comparatively a challenging trek package with many high altitude hikes including the Larkya La Pass (5106 m / 16752 ft) itself. Thus, the journey begins from Kathmandu, passes through Jagat and hikes inside the Tsum Valley before taking a round trip to Manaslu Base Camp while passing via Manaslu Circuit. For those unaware, Mt. Manaslu (8163 m / 26781 ft) is the eighth highest peak in the world.

 

In brief, the trip begins by passing via many of the restricted areas with a special permit issued. Moreover, it allows you to explore ethnic Hindu and Buddhist culture through a diverse range of flora and fauna. Not to mention, the circuit passes into two conservation areas viz. Manaslu Conservation Area & Annapurna Conservation Area.

 

The trail therefore passes via many raging rivers, precarious bridges with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. In contrast to previous times, the trip is now considered to have been much easier than it used to be with greatly improved trails along the Budi Gandaki river gorge as well.

 

Tsum Valley

Tsum Valley is a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley within the Gorkha district of upper central Nepal. It is located at an altitude of 2000 to 3500 m, and has many small villages within. Moreover, the valley itself was a restricted area until it was opened for trekking in 2008.

 

Tsum meaning vivid, the majestic backdrop of the Ganesh Himal and Shringi Himal with Boudha ranges, this serene Himalayan valley is justified for its name. Moreover, the valley is rich for its ancient art, culture and its religion. Additionally, the trails are strewn with artistic chortens and lined with mani stone walls. They are made of thousands of stone slabs carved with drawings of deities and inscribed with prayers. The famous Kyimu Lung, a pilgrimage circuit in the central Trans-Himalaya, is well known for its center of learning and meditation. This circuit traverses the Tsum Valley, the Manaslu area in Nepal, and southern parts of Tibet.

 

The valley is uniquely rich in wildlife, especially the Himalayan Thar and Blue Sheep which congregates in herds of 50 to 200. However, hunting and fishing are restricted in the Tsum Valley. Moreover, the valley also boasts some unique and historic monasteries, including Mu Gompa which lie on a pretty plateau nestled in the lap of the valley.

 

Former Tsum Kingdom

The Tsum Valley has a long history of Buddhism. The Buddhist saint Milarewa is believed to be meditated in the caves of these mountains. Traditionally, the valley was a culturally distinct geographical area called ‘Tsum Tso Chuksum,’ which means thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory. Thus, the ancient remains of the Tsum Kingdom are still visible today. Moreover, due to its remoteness and inaccessibility, this sacred valley and its people have been bypassed by mainstream development for centuries. As a result, the unique culture of this valley has remained intact.

 

The lower part of the valley is steep and has less settlement. Here, the Tsumba are considered to be the indigenous people of the valley. Additionally, they are mostly of Tibetan origin and practice both Bon and Buddhism.

 

Ganesh Himal

Ganesh Himal is a sub-range of the Himalayas located in north-central Nepal, but some peaks lie on the border with Tibet. The highest peak in the range is Yangra (Ganesh I), 7422 m (24350 ft). Moreover, there are three other peaks over 7000 meters plus some fourteen others over 6000 meters. Additionally, the name for the range comes from the Hindu deity Ganesha, usually depicted in the form of an elephant. In fact, the south face of Pabil (Ganesh IV) slightly resembles an elephant, with a ridge that is reminiscent of an elephant’s trunk.

 

Manaslu Conservation Area

Established in 1998, Manaslu Conservation Area is one of the protected regions of Nepal. It covers 1663 km2 in the Mansiri Himal range of the Himalayas in the Gorkha District. Moreover, the area comprises mountains, glaciers, and watercourses. In elevation, the area ranges from 1400 to 8156 m (4593 to 26759 ft), the highest point being the peak of Manaslu.

 

The region is home to 33 species of mammals including snow leopard, musk deer and Himalayan tahr. There are over 110 species of birds and three species of reptiles and over 1500–2000 species of flowering plants. At least four species of frogs are present: Amolops formosus, Nanorana liebigii, Ombrana sikimensis, and Duttaphrynus himalayanus.

 

Kathmandu Day Tour

The package also takes you to explore the historical civilization of Kathmandu Valley. Here the visitors will get an insight into UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It includes Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, Pashupatinath & Kathmandu Durbar Square among others.

 

Note: The trip requires a minimum of two or more members to have been registered with trekking guides accompanying the group in order to obtain the special permit slip.
