Tsum Valley Trek in the Manaslu Region allows you to experience the rich Tibetan Buddhist Culture taking you to the most secluded parts of the Himalayas. It is one of the most mystical treks one can opt for. Banned from travel until 2008, this region comes under the restricted regions of Nepal. The Tsum Valley trek provides an exceptional opportunity to immerse yourself into the pristine nature and rich cultural heritages like old monasteries and stupas, with the stunning views of Mt. Manaslu (8156m) Ganesh Himal (7422m), and other mountain ranges. It is one of the lesser-visited regions with irresistible beauty. The route is extremely adventurous leading to steep rough slopes at times.
Spring (March to May) and Autumn (October to November) is the best time to go on Tsum Valley Trek because of stable weather. The sky remains clear with warm days, perfect for trekking. During Spring, the trail blooms up with numerous wildflowers, whereas in Autumn, you get to be part of several festivals.
Other seasons Summer, Monsoon, and Winter is not an ideal time to go on this trek. The unstable weather and gloomy days make trekking difficult. Heavy rainfall results in a slippery trail and harsh cold all the accommodation on the trail.
The accommodation in this trail will stick with lodges and tea houses where travelers might need to share the rooms. It is best advised to carry sleeping bags for convenience.
