Tsum Valley Manaslu Trek- one of the most underrated treks in Nepal to explore natural wilderness under the cloak of spirituality and culture. As the name Tsum defines hidden valleys, the areas around the valley are not explored much. The exposure to the authentic natural wilderness you get to find here is astounding. The spiritually gold environment boosts up the whole trekking scene. Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek provides tranquility at its very best. The solace and self-satisfaction after hugging nature with open arms make the trip worthwhile.

Towering over Budhi Gandaki River lies an extremely incredible mountain called Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain peak. Tsum Valley is not only about nature’s legacy of gorgeousness. It is also about rich cultures, traditions, and religions. The gorgeous valley of Tsum also expresses the ancient handcrafts and arts at their very best.  Having been influenced by Tibet to an extent, there are a lot of places and things that resemble some parts of Tibet. That’s all because of how much the people there respect and prevail to the teachings of Buddha. Animal sacrifice in the name of religion is a big taboo here. If you want to find peace and solace in nature, Manaslu Tsum Valley Trekking is the perfect destination for you. Nothing beats the feeling of finding yourself again. Amidst all the chaos, you need to be your light.
