Hi Raj, 
I am interested in doing a trek in November within the Manaslu Circuit and combining the Tsum Valley trek.Is Tsum Valley open for trekking right now? I have heard from one friend currently in Nepal that it is closed because of a broken bridge, but he is in Kathmandu and he did not seem certain about it.
Best regards,

- Michael Paravati

Hello Michael, 
Currently, we have a group in Tsum Valley. however, you are right the trail condition is not as smooth as before. The temporary bridge has been already fixed. but in two places you may have to cross  with the help of the rope. According to our guide, they are building the trail and hope to reopen regular trail soon. I will attach the recent picture from our recent group to your email. If you think you can make it let us know how can we help you further. Do not hesitate to ask more information if you need my help to organised the trip.Thanks
