Tsum Valley Manaslu Trek is located in the northernmost part of the Gorkha district of Nepal. Tsum Valley is popularly known as the “Hidden Valley” owing to its remoteness, and years of isolation from the outside world.

Tsum comes from the Tibetan word “Tsombo” which means “Lively” and the village inhabitants are called Tsumba people. The local people are devout Buddhists and follow the teachings of Guru Rinpoche.

The Tsum Valley continues to preserve its ancient Buddhist culture and natural treasures.

Tsum Valley Trek is very beautiful and interesting, with beautiful streams and rivers, towering mountains, cascading waterfalls, and hot mountain springs, the trail is strewn with artistic chortens and lined with Mani walls, made from thousands of stone slabs carved with details and prayers.

Traditionally Tsum Valley was a distinct geographical area called “Tsum to Chuksum” which means thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory. The ancient remains of the Tsum Kingdom are still visible today. Tsum Valley is also considered a home to the legendary and elusive Yetis.

Tsum Valley Trek Overview

Tsum Valley’s acquaintance with Tibet ensures this is a unique and unforgettable trek, rich in culture, beauty, and wildlife, especially the Himalayan Thar, and Blue sheep which congregate in herds of 50 to 200.

As previously mentioned on the Tsum Valley trek, you will come across some unique and historic monasteries, including Rachen Gumba and Mu-Gumba which lie on a beautiful plateau nestled in the lap of the valley, and Gumba Lungdang situated at the base of a conical hill, against the main slope of Ganesh Himal.

Although the Tsum Valley Trek and Manaslu Circuit Trek can be taken as independent treks, we have combined the two beautiful routes to offer you the best experience of the Himalayas’ local culture and nature.

An early morning walk leads us to the Larkya glacier, offering breathtaking views of Larkya Peak. The trail ascends, becoming steeper as we reach the end of the pass, revealing scenes of Himlung, Cheo, Kanggru, and the Annapurna.

You made my dream come true: EBC and 3 Passes

After summiting Kilimanjaro, I was looking for my next adventure. Thank you Adventure White Himalaya Treks, owner Ganesh and Guide, Keshab for a dream and bucket list item come true. From the communication prior to the Trek back in South Africa, to fetching me at the airport and transporting me to a great hotel . Superb and persistent service……and then of to Lukla Airport for the start of a 2 week journey. I did the Everest Base Camp and the 3 Passes.

The whole journey was well planned and executed to perfection. This team is super professional.
Ganesh for leading this company and Keshab, my guide, was absolutely finominal.

Excellent Service

We dealt with Ganesh before the trip and are very happy with the service provided. Everything was as promised.

Our guide, Hari, did an excellent job in planning our whole journey and improvising wherever he saw fit. He also was very in tuned with our fitness level and we didn’t feel that we were pushed beyond our capabilities.

Our porter, Gopi, was also very helpful especially in keeping our spirits up during the whole journey.

All in all I would highly recommend Adventure White Himalaya Treks Pvt Ltd to anyone who is going trekking in Nepal.
