Tsum Valley-Manaslu Heli Trek

Tsum Valley is a rural valley in Nepal’s Gorkha district. The valley has a rich in cultural and natural legacy and is encircled by the Himalayas. The valley is still one of Nepal’s least popular trekking sites even though it just opened to hikers in 2008. Tsum Valley-Manaslu Heli trek is renowned for its long-standing Buddhist customs and culture.  Many monasteries, chortens (Buddhist shrines), and many walls may be seen throughout the valley (stones inscribed with prayers). A well-known Buddhist saint by the name of Milarepa is thought to have meditated in this valley.

The entire trek revolves around exploring the Tsum Valley, a sacred Himalayan valley known for its ancient monasteries, unique culture, and stunning landscapes. Take the time to visit Mu Gompa, the largest monastery in the valley, as well as Rachen Gompa and Milarepa’s Cave. Immerse yourself in the local Buddhist culture, witness prayer ceremonies, and interact with the friendly locals to learn about their way of life.

The Tsum Valley is a hidden gem in Nepal. It is a Buddhist enclave that was only opened to foreigners in 1992. The valley is home to several ancient monasteries and temples, as well as a number of villages that are still largely unaffected by the outside world.

After spending a day exploring the Tsum Valley, the trek continues to the Manaslu region. The Manaslu region is home to the eighth highest mountain in the world, Manaslu. The trek passes through a number of villages and towns in the region, as well as through some stunning scenery, including high-altitude meadows, snow-capped mountains, and gushing waterfalls.

The trek is challenging but rewarding. Hikers will need to be in good physical condition and be prepared for altitude sickness. However, the stunning scenery and the opportunity to experience Nepalese culture make it well worth the effort. Touch the Himalaya Treks and Expedition uses only experienced guides and porters who are familiar with the Manaslu region. The company also provides all the necessary equipment and food, so hikers can simply relax and enjoy the trek.

The lower regions feature dense forests of rhododendron, oak, pine, and bamboo, while the higher altitudes are marked by alpine meadows and rocky landscapes. The region is home to various wildlife species, including Himalayan tahr, blue sheep, musk deer, and a variety of bird species.

Along the trekking trail, there are natural hot springs that offer a unique geographical feature. These hot springs are formed due to the geothermal activity in the region and provide a refreshing and rejuvenating experience for trekkers. Taking a dip in these warm waters amidst the rugged terrain is a highlight of the trek.


The trek provides an opportunity to immerse yourself in the unique culture and traditions of the local communities. The people of the Tsum Valley are of Tibetan origin, and their way of life remains largely untouched by modern influences. You can visit ancient monasteries, interact with the locals, and learn about their customs, rituals, and spiritual practices.

Travelers wishing to experience this spiritually and culturally rich area can stay in simple yet comfortable guesthouses and tea houses scattered along the trail. Trekkers can find a comfortable haven in the Tsum Valley’s stunning scenery after a day of exploration in the rooms, which usually include basic beds and communal bathroom amenities. Carrying a sleeping bag and other necessities is advised for trekkers, as facilities could be more basic than on popular trekking routes in Nepal.

Apart from tea houses, staying at homestays run by local families provides a more profound understanding of the customs and lifestyle of the Tsum Valley communities. Spending time with a host family offers a chance to interact with the community, enjoy meals made with locally farmed products, and learn about customs and traditions.

Manaslu Circuit Trek [ 1 Reviews ]

Trip can’t be compare with else with Touch The Himalaya.

July 22, 2022

Trip can't be compare with else with Touch The Himalaya.

Trip can't be compare with else with Touch The Himalaya by flying half an hour Helicopter then trek to Tsum Valley and Manaslu all in 12 Days was an amazing trip in my life. The whole team took care about every single detail to make the trek unforgettable! Our guide Madan and his crew Kumar and Bishnu booked the best accommodation available in the town during our trip.

My girl friend she was having difficulty adjusting the altitude when we were over 5000 Meter and we(me and my girl) nearly decided to be back from before the Larke pass, Madan and his team empowered us, suggested some altitude adjustment ideas, Bishnu and Kumar supported and finally we succeed the mission Larke Pass, so that we all reached the destination safely. It was a great and lifetime experience. would like to thank Touch The Himalaya and all entire team who helped us to organize such an amazing nature.
