Trip Overview

Tsum Valley Short Trek is a recently opened trail that has gained the attraction of many travel lovers. It leads you to the breathtaking adventure of a lifetime experience, a great and wonderful combination of Nepal’s. This is the perfect combination of the unique Tsum valley which is one of the remote trekking destinations. We can explore and enjoy the local culture wilderness and enjoy the local culture of the old villages. This trekking is the short version of the Manaslu Tsum valley trek. Trekking in this valley locale is well off in social legacy and we will see a blended pack of Chorten through this trekking. The dense forest in this region can be home to many rare and endangered animals. At the time of trekking, we will have an opportunity to see the world’s 8th highest mountain Mt Manaslu. This considers one of the mysteries and challenges trekking in Nepal. This trekking route lies in the Gorkha district and starts from Arughat.

The people are poor since they have been bypassed by development for centuries. This trek has its own unique culture which has remained intact. Many trekkers prefer to stay in teahouses as it is convenient and easy. Tsum Valley Short Trek is a unique adventurous trekking route around the Manaslu region. It is acknowledged that the magnificent Buddhist Guru Milarepa had once reflected inside the mountain surrenders of this valley. The valley trekking is a restricted trekking route in the Manaslu region.

The walk leads from a low warm semi-tropical climate to reach a cooler alpine area. During the time of trekking, we will have an opportunity to see the 8th highest mountain in the world. Not only Manaslu, but we will also have an opportunity to see other mountains on this route which includes Dhaulagiri, and the Annapurna Himalayan range. With the interesting scenic walks visit its heritage villages of colorful culture which is similar to Tibetan. The cultural aspects of this valley are so authentic that trekkers shed tears on seeing the lifestyle of the people living in this region. They are following cultivate and livestock methods from their ancestor. At the time of trekking, we will have an opportunity to explore the Manaslu conservation area of the Project which is home to many rare and endangered animals, birds, flora, and fauna. The Autumn and spring season is the best season for trekking on this route.

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Rabin Gurung

It was a trip we will always remember and be proud of. You need not worry about anything since Dhan (Sameer Gurung) and their group will arrange everything (i.e. Hotel, Food, transportation, a plane ticket to Lukla, etc.). The trekking was long and arduous yet our guide was very accommodating and conscious of us. He knows the place very well and will gladly tell you stories about it along the way. The whole trek was truly breathtaking. You won’t regret this trip! (Note: Try to reach viewing deck areas before sunrise and watch as the sun makes everything look spectacular!☺)

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Dhansingh Gurung

Dhansingh guided me on compressed Annapurna Circuit trek late last year and the experience far exceeded my expectations. Having someone who knew the route, language, local culture, weather conditions and wildlife intimately enabled me to relax and get the most from my trip. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt extremely well looked after and safe from the moment I arrived in Nepal right up until I left. I couldn’t recommend more highly, very professional service.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Dhansingh

We had a wonderful time on our trek. We did the 8 day ABC trek. The route is beautiful with lots of stunning vistas. Our guide Dhansingh was knowledgable and friendly and really looked after us. I would be happy to recommend this tour to anyone thinking of tackling ABC.

Everest Gokyo & Renjola Pass with Dhansigh

I first met Dhansingh in May of 2016 when we completed the Renjo La pass. I’ve now returned this summer of ’17 to explore with Dhansingh some areas of Annapurna. Dhansingh’s competency is the first rate, and he a very pleasant person with whom to spend time. I highly recommend Everest Trekking Routes.
