Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is newly opened trekking route which lies in the northeast from Kathmandu valley. The Manaslu Tsum valley Teahouse Trek is also known as the hidden valley of a land of monasteries and helmets with totally Tibetan population. The traveler in this region is very less owing to its difficult terrain and very simple accommodation facility. The valley is a blessed with Himalayan Buddhist pilgrimage site located in the northern part of Gorkha district. The avalanche and strong wind make it a very difficult mountain to scale. The trail that ascends with the Budhi Gandaki River valley through the lush forest of Rhododendron, pine and oak up to the barren lands north of Mt Manaslu which is truly considered is one of the adventurous trekking routes in the Manaslu region. This trek can explore the wilderness and enjoy the local culture of the old villages of Samagaun and Samdo. Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is more remote and spectacular than many, with rough steep track and the less accommodation. We could be able to observe the friendly people, their warm hospitality, lifestyle, traditions, culture, and as well as their language. Most of the peoples of this region are influenced by the Buddhism or you can say many people are Buddhist.

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek begins from Arughat after 7 to 8 hours drive from Kathmandu valley. It is also known for the home of world 8th highest mountain in the world and it is believed to be the first choice for those who prefer to become one with nature. Trekking in this route is one of the delightful adventures. In the Manaslu trekking area, the local people are from Tibet, they speak a unique language which is similar to the Tibetan language. At the time of trekking, we will enter the Manaslu Conservation Area which is also known as the home of rare birds, animals, flora, and fauna of this region. The Tsum people have their own way of family life which may quite be surprising for any outsider. The trek is the delightful journey that let you walk along the Nepal-Tibet border. We get an opportunity to know about the culture, tradition, and lifestyle of the Gurung people who are the local inhabitant of this region.
