Trip Overview

Embark on an extraordinary adventure with Taktok Brothers Expedition as we present the Manaslu Circuit Trek with Tsum Valley, a hidden jewel awaiting discovery. Ideal for trekking enthusiasts with a spirit for adventure and a desire for a less technical trek, this route offers a perfect blend of natural beauty and cultural richness.

Opened to trekkers in 1991, the Manaslu Circuit has retained its pristine allure due to limited exploration. This trek is tailored for those seeking a journey off the beaten path, away from the crowds, and into the heart of the concealed treasures of Nepal. Traverse through landscapes adorned with diverse flora and fauna, and witness breathtaking mountain views that will leave you in awe.

The cultural tapestry woven by indigenous groups like Gurung and Sherpa adds a fascinating layer to your trekking experience. As you venture into the Tsum Valley section, you’ll feel the thrill of an exploratory trek, surrounded by altitudes exceeding 3,000m. The challenging ascent to Larkya La at 5,160m, often covered in snow and ice, promises an exhilarating experience for seasoned trekkers.

Unlike the well-trodden paths, the Manaslu Circuit and Tsum Valley offer a sense of unexplored wilderness. The weather, though unpredictable, adds an element of excitement to the journey, with temperatures ranging from -10 degrees C to 20 degrees C.

Escape the ordinary, tread the path less taken, and join Taktok Brothers Expedition on the Manaslu Circuit Trek with Tsum Valley. Immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the Himalayas and create memories of a lifetime in this lesser-known haven. Your adventure begins where the beaten trails end.
