Tsum Valley is known as the “hidden valley” because it is located in a very remote area in the north of Kathmandu. Tsum Valley lies between the Buddha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the north. Because of its remoteness and its late opening in October 2007 there is little information and no promotion manaslu tsum valley trek.

During this trek you will have breathtaking views of the mountains; you will see stupas, monasteries and discover the lifestyle of Tibetans. ‘Tsum’ which is derived from the Tibetan word-Tsombo, which means live.
