Join us at the Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek to get the full experience of exploring both the spectacular Manaslu Trek and the culturally mesmerizing and newly opened hidden valley of Tsum. As described in the information about Manaslu Circuit Trek and the Tsum Valley Trek, this trek will take us through lush and rugged landscapes, bamboo and pine forests, unique and invaluable flora & fauna, breathtaking mountain vistas and much more. To explore this massive region and to preserve its authenticity it is required a minimum of two trekkers in a group as well as two special permits to enter both the majestic Manaslu area and the Tsum Valley, emphasizing how special this region is. One of the benefits of doing both the Tsum Valley and Manaslu circuit is that we get to experience the complete package of both natural and cultural aspects, which would be somewhat missed by excluding one or the other. Another very beneficial aspect of is that we get to improve our acclimatization and minimizing the risk of altitude sickness during the continued ascend on the trek.
We at Nepal Trekking Experts are locals and have grown up in the Manaslu region, which is why we strive to provide our clients with an experience of a lifetime, making use of our life-long experience. We love to share our knowledge and stories of the region and we are prepared to go that extra mile in order to provide our clients with an exceptional and personal adventure through this magical region of Nepal.
The trek begins from Arughat and continues along the banks of the Budhi Gandaki River in an initially lush and green environment packed with beautiful waterfalls and suspension bridges of different sizes. From Jagat to Lokpa is where we enter the restricted area of Tsum Valley where we head north to Lopka, offering us a view of the holy mountains of Siringi Himal and Ganesh Himal. We will continue through pine and bamboo forests surrounded by mountains and rhododendron flowers – the stunningly beautiful national flower of Nepal. From Chumling to Chhokoang Paro the landscape will change and we will begin to explore the unspoiled Tibetan communities, monasteries and cultures amid the humbling Himalayan Mountains. There will be a unique opportunity to spend a night in one of the Buddhist monasteries. We continue our trek and will have a hike through jungle and later reach the Ganesh Himal Base Camp from where we will have some of the best views on our journey before heading back and continuing our trek towards the mighty Manaslu. Our trail leads us through a jungle like environment full of ancient Buddhistic mani walls and later the landscape magically opens up as we gain altitude. On our acclimatization day at Sama we will have amazing opportunity to do some side-trips, hiking to the famous Manaslu Base Camp or the less challenging hike to Pungen Gumpa. Furthermore, at our stay at Samdo we can do a site-trip and hike to the renowned and spectacular Tibetan boarder. We will spend our last night in Dharmasala before one of the highlights and achievement of the trek, crossing the Larke La at astounding 5160 m, which will be an amazing accomplishment. After the pass, we will descend to Bhimthang offering us some of the best accommodation of the trek and the opportunity to celebrate our achievement of the trip so far. Also the natural impressive lush forest from Bhimthang to Goa will make your trip outstanding.

>> for english look below please Поскольку я уже пользовалась услугами менеджера Раджеша Ньюпане и этот опыт был положительным, я обратилась именно в агенство " Nepal Trekking Experts", чтобы получить помощь в организации для меня треккинга, Сделав свой выбор я не ошиблась! Раджеш великолепно справился с работой. Он разработал нужный для меня маршрут (Цум долина - Ганеш химал - Манаслу), учтя все мои пожелания, подготовил необходимые документы и предоставил квалифицированных гида и портера. Меня удивляет способность Раджеша правильно подбирать персонал! Его гиды и портеры в походах всегда надежны, заботливы, грамотны и без вредных привычек. Опытный персонал "Nepal Trekking Experts", адекватные цены на его услуги, надежность, что еще надо! - нет необходимости искать других агентов. Я и в будущем буду пользоваться их услугами! В этом треке меня сопровождал гид Раджу Дахал. Несмотря на молодость, Раджу работал профессионально, в трудных ситуациях действовал надежно, обеспечивая мою безопасность. Я несколько лет хожу в походы в Гималаи и, если это позволяют условия трека, не пользуюсь услугами гида,. Но с Раджу Дахал можно идти в любой трек, он идеальный попутчик!
I applied to the agency "Nepal Trekking Experts" in order to get help in organizing the trekking for me, because I already had a positive experience in cooperation with manager Rajesh Newpane. And again I was not mistaken in making my choice! Rajesh did a great job. He developed the necessary route for me (Tsum Valley - Ganesh Himal - Manaslu), taking into account all my wishes, prepared the necessary documents and provided qualified guide and a porter. I was amazed at Rajesh's ability to choose the right persons! His guides and porters in treks are always reliable, caring, competent and without bad habits. Experienced staff from "Nepal Trekking Experts", adequate prices for its services, reliability, what else is needed! - there is no need to look for other agents. I will use their services in the future! In this trek I was accompanied by guide Raju Dahal. Despite his youth, Raju worked professionally, in difficult situations acted reliably, providing my safety. I have been going on trips to the Himalayas for several years and, if the conditions of the trеk permit, I do not use the services of a guide. But with Raju Dahal you can go to any trеk, he is a perfect companion!
In short : I can’t imagine a trekking company giving a better service ! If you want to trek in Nepal, contact them and you’re 100% sure satisfaction ! My wife, two kids and I just completed the Manaslu and Tsum valley trek with « Nepal Trekking Experts » and we had a wonderful time. I first contacted Rabin and Rajesh Neupane many months ago to know the feasability of this trek for a family like us. Since the beginning of emails exchange, they were trustable and honest. While offering us there services, they also shared with us some concerns about the kids on such a big trek. We thought about it and decided to move forward. They supported us through all the project with a service that went beyond our expectations. They provided us a totally adaptable itinerary. As we were trekking with kids, we wanted to be able to decide every night where we want to go next day therefore adapting the pace with the kid's energy. So Rajesh and Rabin, provided us a guide with exact knowledge of the trail and an itinerary with a certain amount of days that could be adapt, fitting exactly our needs. When Rajesh came to pick us up at the airport, we immediately knew we were in good hands. The next day we discussed details at his office with a drink in a friendly atmosphere. Rajesh is an experienced guide that owns his company, not a company owner that rarely goes in the mountains, therefore he can discuss the itinerary with you and he gives excellent advises. You’ll notice the difference when you’ll meet him. He then took care of all the permit issues (which was little more complicated than normal because of the kids) and we were able to meet our guide and porter the following day. During this meeting, I remember a sentence that Rajesh said that totally illustrate the way he runs his business : Raj speaking to our guide and porter: « Make them (us) feel that Nepal is the best place to spend there holiday, make there stay here memorable, make them want to come back, again and again. » Our guide Bikash Maharjan was exceptional ! He spoke excellent English, knew the trail by heart (he knew many places not even on the map and also the exact time to reach all the different places, other trekkers also noticed how precisely he knew the way), was always making sure everything was OK for us on the trail and at the tea house, selected the best accommodation option every night… he was excellent ! Our porter Saroj Lamichhane was way more than a porter ! He was funny with the kids, taking care of us (sometimes going in front to ensure a good spot for the night or ordering food in advance for hungry/tired kids…). By the way he his also an excellent Nepaly traditional singer ! Unlike many porters we met during the trek, Saroj was part of the team. Rajesh, we can tell you they made us feel that Nepal is the place to spend holidays, yes our trek was memorable and yes we will come back trekking with you guys ! On top of that « Nepal Trekking Experts » was less expensive than the other company I contacted ! What can I say more ?
We had an amazing trip with Nepal Trekking Experts on the Manaslu Circuit and Tsum Valley Trek for 20 days in November 2016. In preparation for the trek Raj and Rabin were flexible and organised from the outset. Both are incredibly hospitable, knowledgeable and eager to share their advice on everything from what to bring, to our plans for after the trek. We knew we were in safe hands! During our trek, Rabin was incredibly professional, helpful and flexible. It was wonderful to have such an experienced local guide, who knew the height of every mountain we could spot and always ensured we stayed and ate in wonderful tea houses along the route where we experienced amazing hospitality. Rabin always did his best to ensure we were having the best trip possible and it was a fantastic way to spend 3 weeks!
