Traditionally Tsum valley was a culturally distinct geographical area called 'Tsum Tso Chuksum', which means thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory.

Day 06: Trek to Namrung (2550m), 6-7 hours After a hot breakfast, we cross the Budhi Gandaki and climb to Rana (1910m). From the bridge, we climb a bit to join a trail from Bhi, then move west up the Budhi Gandaki valley. The trail also passes through Pine forests and Maniwall where we turn towards a corner that follows to Ghap. We further cross the Budi Gandaki several times today and come across several Gompas during the trail. The trail follows the river upstream through a dense forest. After crossing the river at an impressive spot where it thunders down a narrow gorge, the forest becomes less dense and the trail is fine again. The pleasant walk continues and after a last steep climb we reach Namrung. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.


Day 07: Trek to Lho (3180), 4-5 Hours
After a very good sleep at night early morning we wake with hot tea and take hot breakfast, after this, we start trek for today as well, after a little trek we cross the wooden bridge then we climb gradually and pass through forests and reach Shyo Village, a fine village with many chortens and barley terraces. During the trail we see very stunning views of Shring ji and Ganesh Himal I (7429 m) and from the village one can also see Mt. Himal Chuli (7893 m), Manaslu (8156 m) in the south. The trail drops and crosses the side valley of Simnang Himal with Ganesh Himal always close by. Finally we reach to our destination for the day Lho. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.


Day 08: Trek to Samagoaun (3500m), 5-6 Hours
Again another beautiful for the trek starts here, when we leave Lho village, we climb a little bit where we found a gate for the Lho Monastery then we immediately trek down to river side around 100 m. After then we again cross wooden bridge and we climb up to Syala (3520 m.) Village around 2 hours. In Shayla village we will be surrounded by high mountains like Mt. Himal Chuli (7893 m), and Peak 29 (Ngadi Chuli) 7871 m. to the left, Manaslu (8156 m) and large glaciers straight ahead, and other snow summits to the right, and at the far end stands Ganesh Himal I (7429 m). Today’s journey ends in Samagaon. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.


Day 09: Trek to Samdo (3780m), 4-5 hours
Today, we descend to the Budhi Gandaki River, that has turned north and follow it to a bridge over a side stream. The trail to the left leads to the Manaslu Base camp. The Larkya la Trail passes several mani walls as the valley begins to widen. It is an easy trail on a shelf above the river passing the juniper forests of Kermo Kharka. We drop off the shelf, cross the Budhi Gandaki on a wDay 14: Trek to Dharapani and Drive to Syange /Besisaharooden bridge and climb steeply onto a promontory between two branches of the river. After river we climb up and where we found first chorten of Samdo village then we found another maniwall after this we found Samdo. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.


Day 10: Acclimatization and excursion day (Go up to Tibet border)
This is another day set aside for proper acclimatization. There are two options for us today. The option that we highly recommend is a hike, up the valley directly at the back of the Samdo village. This hike will take us to one of the trade passes to Tibet for excellent views of Mt. Manaslu (8156 m) along with other Himalayan ranges including Simrang, Hiunchuli (6441 m), Ngadi (7871 m), Larkye Peak (6249 m), Cheo Himal ( 6820 m) and possibly Kang Guru behind the pass. On route to these viewpoints we pass many seasonal herding settlements called doksas and sight some beautiful mountain birds like the Lophophorus (the national bird of Nepal), Lammergeyer and Himalayan Griffin soaring high above us. Another option for today could be a trip to the Gya La ('large pass') to the north of Samdo, a more frequently used trading route to Tibet. But, this is a rather longer hike (whole day) and hence could be a little tiring. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.


Day 11: Trek to Dharmasala (4800m), 4-5 hours
With the beautiful morning and hot breakfast again our day starts, we continue our walk down the edge, cross the wooden bridge over Budi Gandaki again and begin walking upward. Upon crossing two streams and viewing the Larkya Glacier we go around the valley of the Salka Khola and climb up again to the stone guest house (4450 m), which is not a lodge but a kind of shelter called Dharmshala, also known as Larke Phedi. The short walk today also leaves plenty of time for acclimatization and relaxing in the afternoon. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.


Day 12: Cross Larkya La pass (5106m) and trek to Bhimthang (3590m), 8-9 hours
Today a final challenging of the trek, we wake early morning around 4 o'clock and take breakfast whatever we get and we start our trek at 5 o'clock. We climb about 2 hours then we reach a valley on the north side of the Larkya Glaciers from where we can enjoy great views of Cho Danda and Larkya Peak. Finally, we walk across moraines of the glacier, making a gradual ascent which becomes steeper only in the last section of the pass. From the pass, there are outstanding views of Himlung Himal, Cheo Himal, Kangguru and the huge Annapurna II (7937 m). It is a longer day than usual to Bimtang. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.


Day 13: Trek to Tilje (3900m), 5-6 hours
Hopefully yesterday's tiring body will come up in a shape today. Another trek will start again. From a ridge at Bimthang, we can enjoy great views of Mt. Manaslu (8,156 m), Lamjung Himal (6,983 m), Himlung Himal (7,126 m) and Cheo Himal
(6820 m). We descend further and cross a high pasture (Sangure Kharka) followed by a bridge over Dudh Khola. We walk through rhododendron forest and follow a trail through a narrow valley until we reach the highest cultivated land of the valley at Karche, 2785 meters. We pass across fields before making a steep climb over a ridge. The trail comes off the ridge in a big, sweeping arc to the river bank at 2580m. A short distance beyond is the village of Gho. Due to yesterday's tiredness we might take an overnight rest at Gho but better lodges are available at Tilje, so Alpine Excursion Treks recommends to at Tilije. Overnight at Lodge/Tent.


Day 14: Trek to Dharapani and Drive to Syange /Besisahar

Day 15: Drive back to Kathmandu
Day 16: Rest (Shhopping day) in Kathmandu

Day 17: Final Departure in your homeland


Trekking Difficulty of this trek:


It's among the longest trekking in Nepal. The trek begins from subtropical to tundra climatic zones while passing through six different climatic zones. It also extends from 715 meters to 5218 meters and passes through the valley of Buddi Gandaki, which surrounds Mount Manaslu. Of course, due to its gradual altitude, it is difficult to walk in thin air and to cover 177 kilometers in the distance.
The Manaslu Trek is great for people who have a good physical health and are eager to stroll at high altitudes. Note that hiking in Manaslu is moderate to strenuous. However, elderly people can also finish this trek if they take the necessary





Lodging and food during the trek:


Accommodation is in guesthouses (often called teahouses) along the way. Rooms have two single beds and usually a small window. Toilet facilities are most often shared rather than en-suite bathrooms on the Manaslu Trek. They can be inside the main house or in the outhouse. It may be a western style toilet or a squat. Things tend to become more basic at higher altitudes. There's also a dining room where food is prepared, so it's a perfect spot to get to know your fellow trekkers. The higher you go, usually around dinner time there will be a fire in the dining room, although this is by no means guaranteed.
During the lodge trek, we will enjoy authentic Nepalese food (Dal bhat, vegetables, curry …) rice, lentil, as well as more-foreign cuisine. You can select from the lodge menu if you want, and at a time when it's difficult to pick, our guide can help you choose and taste the local cuisine. Breakfast and dinner are served from the teahouse or from the lodge menu where we spend the night. Lunch and Dinner are not included in the price. If you want to include the lunch and dinner you would have to tick the box at the top right side of the booking menu.

Electricity and Charging your devices while on trek:


Owing to the small hydropower project, 220 volts of electrical power is available in many villages. Light and power sockets are also available for charging batteries on a payable basis. Villages without electricity normally use a solar energy for charging lights and batteries.

Drinking water during the trek:

The Manaslu trek is physically exhausting and drinking a lot of water is a must. The first several days at low altitudes can be hot, so expect a lot of water to be needed. At cooler, higher altitudes, you can feel less thirsty, but drinking lots of water allows you to acclimate. Planning to have at least two liters of water when trekking every day is a smart way to start. Filling up water is quick. Taps in, out or in guesthouses mean that there are plenty of places to fill your bottles and/or your water bladders. This could be where you stay, a lunch stop, or a shared public tap used by locals. Use an efficient sterilization method to make sure your water is safe and not contaminated in anyway. Bottled water is available to buy throughout the trek, but we would advise against this for a number of reasons. You do not need them if you use sterilization method. Environment concerns are there and also buying water is expensive up in the mountains.


Obtaining trekking permits:


You would require permits for this trek, which are Restricted Area permit (RAP), ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Project), and MCAP (Manaslu Conservation Area Project).

AET shall take care of the permits for you.


Insuring your safety:


We suggest taking out an insurance plan for your individual accountability, accidents and illnesses during the service.
Regarding the type of activity, you may be asked to show a certificate of insurance for help and support, sanitation and search. This service is private and not free in Nepal, the helicopter will not take off until it is convinced to pay for the insurance.


Carrying Extra money:


It’s difficult to give an exact amount of money that you should bring. Costs will vary according to how much you want to spend for shopping and where and what meals (lunch & dinner) you want to eat. Trekkers find that around $20 (for lunch & dinner) a day is reasonable for the trekking days.
As for the tips, A general rule of thumb for tipping is USD 25 for the guide per traveler and USD 25 for porter between two travelers if you are fully satisfied with their service. So we suggest you allocate a minimum of USD 60 for Tipping. This is just a guideline and you may tip whatever / how much you think is appropriate for the services rendered which made your trek a memorable one.


Luggage per one person


For the trek, we'll have one porter for two people as per group size. The porter will carry 10-15kg per person luggage during the trek. You need to carry your daypack to keep your personal belongings such as wallet, camera, water bottle, dry snack, headlight, gadgets etc.


Best time for the trek


The ideal time to go hiking in Manaslu is from September to November. In general, the weather is dry and clear, with warm sunny days and excellent visibility. Spring during April-May is also considered the best time for this trek. At this time of year, there is a reduced incidence of weather-related natural disasters, making the trekking climate much safer. Moreover, given that it's the best season, it's also the busiest.

Trekking in Nepal, Annapurna Region
8: Jomson Muktinath (Holy)Trek

The Jomsom and Muktinath trek is a part of the Annapurna circuit and perhaps the single most popular trek in Nepal. The diverse landscapes and cultures found along this trekking route give the perfect insight into the rural life of Nepalese people. The main feature of this trek is walking through the gorge carved by the Kali Gandaki River, which carries water from the Tibetan plateau to eventually join

The Ganges in India.

The starting and ending point is Nayapul about one hour drive from Pokhara. Normally trekkers continue on above Jomsom to Mukitnath, the famous pilgrimage site for both Hindu and Buddhist. To the Hindu, Muktinath is a sacred as the place of salvation. They believe that to wash in the water here guarantees salvation after death. To the Buddhist it is the place that the great sage Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava) meditated at, and to all, it is the source of fossilized ammonites, known locally as shaligrams that are found all along the upper reaches of the Kali Gandaki River valley. This trek is recommended year round as most of this trek is always in the rain shadow.
