26 Days Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking - The Journey.

 The Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking "the Valley of Happiness" trek starts from Soti Khola. Following an ascending trail, you will reach the Budhi Gandaki Valley which passes through pine and rhododendron forests. 

From there heading upwards keeping up over a ridge is your prime target for reaching the destined place called Lokpa. This very point is also known as the gateway to Tsum Valley. However, it will take us three days to reach Lokpa.

Reaching Lokpa takes around three days, first day is spent at Machha Khola, followed by Jagat, and finally at Lokpa and then to the Tsum Valley. The Tsum Manaslu Valley Trekking Region is an interesting place with scenic walks written all over it. Here visiting the heritage villages that follow a mix of Tibetan and Buddhist religion is fabulous. 

Besides that, a tour of Mu Gompa and Rachen Gompa (monastery) is a divine feeling to bask in. You will then join the Budi Gandaki River and tread on a higher trail following the Manaslu Valley to reach the Larke-la-pass. This is the highest point of the adventure and has an elevation of 5,215m. The sweeping panoramic views that you get from here of the snow-clad peaks are monumental. 

The walk then follows through beautiful alpine woodland of tall rhododendron-pines-oaks and fir tree lines. The trek then goes past the interesting villages of Namrung-Lho and then towards Samagaon. 

The tree lines start to fade giving way to short high alpine vegetation of juniper and rhododendron (azalea) bushes on this arctic cold terrain. The culture and age-old traditional life followed since ages is timeless which is inspired by the strong Tibetan influence.

 The villages of Samdu and Samagaon here lie nearby and share borders with Tibet. Be prepared as the adventure from here on is set on a parched and arid landscape at Larke Phedi (bottom).

An exciting part of a fulfilling adventure trek leads you to a scenic and steep climb to make it to the top of Larke-La. This is a place no less than heaven as it offers splendid vistas of the surrounding hills and mountains.

 Having covered lots of ground to reach here is worth reliving exploring and spending time gazing at these natural wonders. Later you will join the trail that reaches you towards the limit of the Manang area. You then follow the Marsyangdi River downstream to the lower warm areas.

Once here you get the accomplished feel of the overwhelmingly exciting Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking. Treasuring that feeling deep down into your hearts you will board a Kathmandu-bound vehicle.

Tsum Valley Manaslu Trekking Trip Grade and Difficulties

The Tsum Manaslu Valley Trek is strenuously challenging. Due to its variations, it poses difficulties as one has to constantly walk from lower altitudes to the higher trekking trails. Trekking at higher altitudes is physically more demanding than trekking at lower altitudes. 

Some days require longer walking hours. To achieve this goal you need to be physically fit with mental preparedness for walking long. Hence preparations of a couple of weeks before the trip will not only boost your stamina but increase your chances of completing it.

 However, trekkers with chronic medical conditions related to heart, lung, and blood disease should not attempt this challenging trekking trail.

You will be getting an uninterrupted supply of internet services at the tea lodges but you have to pay extra to get this facility. However as we reach higher altitudes internet During the Tsum Manaslu Valley Circuit Trek, you can use internet service at lodges for an extra service charge.

But once we reach high altitudes, you won’t be getting the internet services at will.  Instead, you can make a call by making use of your mobile phone. For that, you can purchase a local SIM card while in Kathmandu before you go up into the mountains. However, the signals might be weak as you constantly go higher up into the mountains.

We will accommodate you and your group in a local lodge available each day. You stay in single rooms where possible, but more often than not you will have to share. It is fairly reasonable and wise to stay in the Lodge rather than organizing a camping trek.

                                                      Essential Info

                                                      If you have an Indian passport, the cost of trekking to Everest Base Camp is INR 100,000. When breaking down the cost, Indian citizens pay slightly less than citizens of other nations because India is a member of the SAARC (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri-Lanka), which lowers the cost of a permit. Additionally, Indian citizens pay less for airline tickets than citizens of other nations, which further lowers the cost of the trip. 

                                                      People travelling from SAARC countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri-Lanka). have low-cost permits, the cost of trekking to Everest Base Camp can be 20 to 50 dollars less for holders of these kinds of Trekkers and travelers coming to Nepal.
