Tsum Valley Trek takes us into the core of Baudha Himal, Ganesh Himal, and Shringi Himal. The area was opened in 2008 AD for trekking. It was restricted to enter for tourists before. It lies on the northern edge of one of the most undisturbed Himalayan valleys, which is purely untouched Tibetan Buddhist land. The culture, tradition, art, and culture practiced by the local people (called Tsumbas) belong to Tibetan origin and they speak their ancient dialect. They have a unique lifestyle that may be very strange to the other world. They are still following the ancient “Polyandry Marriage” social and cultural system to save their parental properties. In this system, brothers get married to a single girl, it should be quite strange and interesting for you. The region is not exposed to many tourists yet.
The journey of Manaslu Trekking begins with the bus journey to Lapubeshi via Aarughat via the postal road of Dhading district which has been recently opened. Walking starts from Lapubeshi. Most of our journey follows the glacial river of Budi Gandaki so we cross several bridges. Moving forward on the trails, you see the river narrows into the narrow gorge where you will find a completely different landscape and community. You find yourselves a completely Tibetan-like community due to the Mani Walls and Chortens. Trekking to Ganesh Himal Base is a bonus trip for you for a wilderness experience if you have a longer holiday. Once you cross the Larke La Pass you will be overwhelmed by views of Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Himlung, and Mt. Ganesh Himal. When we descend, we meet the Annapurna Circuit Trail at Dharapani. If you are interested to do Thorong La Pass then that can be arranged too. Otherwise, we drive back to Besisahar and respectively to Kathmandu. In summary, the trek to Manaslu is one authentic destination that may be your first experience.
