TSUM VALLEY SIDE TRIP DURING MANASLU TREK

Tsum Valley
 
No doubt Manaslu Circuit Trek is now one of the best trekking destination in Nepal. It had proved itself as an ideal alternative of Annapurna Circuit Trek. Main reason behind its popularity is its natural beauty and unspoiled culture that resemble with Tibetan People. Monastery, People and Mountain are the best part of Manaslu Circuit Trek. Slowly road is approaching deep inside Manaslu as before it was up to Arughat however now days easily one can drive all the way to Soti Khola. Similarly at the end point of circuit also there is rapid road project is being carry out. One can easily save couple of days after entering on Annapurna Region at Dharapani. Most of time periods of year there are stand by local jeeps that might or might not be available during monsoon periods.

Tsum Valley Trek
Elung Chuli - Tsum Valley Trek

After entering on restricted region, very first day trail get separated toward Manaslu Larke Pass and Tsum Valley. Tsum Valley lies on rain shadow of Ganesh Himal Region on northeast of Manaslu. It is best alternative as a side trip during Manaslu Trek. One simply need to allocated seven to eight more days for Tsum Valley. Centuries old Tsum Valley force us to think that whether time had forget to passes by cause it looks extra old and ethnic in all aspects. Lifestyle of people is very primitive. Each village is accompanied by monastery. Gumba Lundang is isolated far from settlement that host few female monks. Apart from famous Gumba Lundang Rachen Gompa and Mu Monastery are best monk schools on the world. We can see number of small kids on red lama dress studying hard to became monk in future. Animal are not allowed to killed within territory of Tsum however one can consume meat brought out of Tsum. Rest day on Gumba Lundang can be utilized to explore Ganesh Himal Base Camp area along with Ganesh Kunda that is most popularly know as Ruby Valley Trek. In several places there are Chortens and long Mani Wall. Milarepa Cave in Lama Gaon is worth to explore where Guru Padmashamva had meditate. Highest elevation that we can gain in Tsum range 4200 m from sea level from where we again descend all the way back to Ghum Bridge and continue to Manaslu. No doubt there is now large room for acclimatization for trekkers. Instead of Manaslu and Tsum in one trip single Tsum Valley Trek might be another choice instead of high passes of Manaslu. Recently some excavators are brought to Tsum through help of Helicopter for constructing motor able road from Tibet Side. After a couple of hours hike up from Mu Monastery one can view Tibetan Himalayan Ranges. Local people they traverse all the way to Tibet for goods when border is open for local. As consequences we can see Chinese Products on Tsum like cold drink, alcoholic beverages, bakery items like cookies, tin meat etc. In general for those with enough time span Tsum Valley Trek is highly recommended as well as it can be best alternatives for people with elevation anxiety.
