Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is said to be one of the hidden charms of Nepal. The awe-inspiring lovely landscapes of this region are something that will surpass the imaginations of trekkers beyond expectations. Tsum Valley is also locally known as the Beyul Kyimolung, the blessed hidden valley of harmony and contentment, initially described by Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) in the eighth century. As per legends, Milarepa meditated in the caves of Piren Phu, and nunneries centuries old, as old as the sun, are found hereabouts. Remote though this area is, the landscapes are simply magnificent. Since this is a newly discovered trail, the Tsum valley trek area sees fewer footfalls & is ideal for trekkers who want the trails all to themselves, but the time will come when the Manaslu region will be a magnet & overshadow the Everest region. Nepal’s foreign exchange coffers will probably rake in dollars in the days ahead.
Even though the little fanfare for the Tsum valley is not enough due to the expensive permit fees as felt, the attractive ridgelines are less heralded but with more classic mountain beauty; and this is not all, the olden culture of the local folks are a great area of interest for trekkers heading to this region. This is more or less a hidden valley, but nature reveals itself on every twist of the trails, & backpackers enjoy the bliss of the unknown on the discovery of this wonderful valley. The valley is surrounded by Bouddha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Shringi Himal to the North. The trekking to this region varies from the height of 1905m to as high as 5093m. since most of the local folks hereabouts are mostly Tibetan, we see people celebrating Lhosar, Dhacyhang, Saka Dawa, Fanning, and many other interesting festivals. Trekking in this region is not only venturing into the unknown, but we also have fun indeed when interacting with the local people and get to know more about the region & it’s [depends on how you look at it] the superstitions that can send a cold chill through the spines of your body.
Our trek begins from Arughat with a drive from Kathmandu and then the trail continues towards the land of Soti Khola, Machha Khola, Dovan, Philim, Chumling, and a number of pretty villages as we hike the length of the region. We acclimatize ourselves at different heights so that we get used to the thin air which may create problems for our trekker friends. Trekking far-flung Tsum Valley with ‘A One Nepal Treks’ is an exclusive experience of discovering the unknown from the known; the drawn skyline that you see when hiking through the Tsum valley is the kind that inspires poets and painters. Come over to Nepal and discover yourself in an avatar you’ve never known…

would very much like to sincerely recommend A Nepal trek company and a best manager named Mr. Y.B.Pant[Rajendra]. This is my third trip to Nepal and took a service with well known guide Mr Rajendra. We were very proud because he has been starting his a nice operation company with almost nearly 20 years experience of his guiding with some thousands of tourists from world. He provides us a good guide and a porter. Guide[Surya] was a real discovery! we took 17 days trek to “Throng-la pass 5416m” or known as “Annapurna circuit”. He is one of the most knowledgeable guide with friendly nature and of-course, me very strong impression by his great service. So, this year, I decided to do again something genuine with this Trekking company, Although, if you are planning a trip to Nepal, please do not miss your chance to observe the best respectful business way of life and get life-time memory from Nepal. No, many others agency will be able to find a proper guide on field. True they were became a real friend of mine for long & long…….

Estimado y querido Rajendra,
el viaje que nos organizaste por Nepal fue simplemente espectacular. Tu organización fue perfecta, tanto de los hoteles como en los pueblos que fuimos parando durante la vuelta al Annapurna. Tu conocimiento del lugar nos facilitó mucho las cosas, tu asesoramiento con respecto a la altura, que hizo que ninguno del grupo tuviera problemas. Tu calidez y simpatía hizo que dejáramos a un verdadero amigo en Nepal.
Todos tenemos ganas de volver, porque sabemos en quién confiar y conociendo ahora la maravilla que es tu país y sugente.
Otra vez muchas gracias por todo este evento inolvidable para nosotros.
