Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek Itinerary 22 Days is for those who want to experience the Little Tibet or Tsum Valley as part of the Manaslu trek. The Tsum Valley is another popular side trip from Manaslu, which requires one week of a special permit in addition to the ACAP, MCAP and Manaslu trek permit. The cost of the Tsum Valley permit is cost you US$35 for 7 days.

You may want to inform your local company if you wish to pass through Tsum Valley so they can arrange the necessary permit. However, Manaslu trek itinerary could be design based on your interest as well. As fast as 12 days or 14 days with side trip. Or even up to 22 days including a side trip to Tsum Valley.

Important Note: The classic itinerary for the Manaslu trek with Tsum Valley used to take 22 days. But recently, the Trek starting point has been pushed further up due to new road construction. If you drive in a private jeep, you may be able to reach  Machhekhola or even Jagat in the dry season. However, in present days a local bus can only reach Sotikhola. You can either take a private jeep and skip the lower part with a covered motorable trail or take the local bus and hike in the motor track.

Born and raised in Gorkha, Nepal, I am proud to call the Manaslu region my home! I have been in the travel business for over a decade from being assistance guide, leader, to being a manager. And finally today I am the founder of NEST Adventure. So you could say I know my way well enough in the Himalayas, especially in some of the off-the-beaten-trails in Nepal like Manaslu, Kanchenjunga and Mustang!

I am passionate about travelling and I strongly believe that seeing the world shouldn't break the bank (at least not too much!). I have backpacked to over 15 countries in Asia, Central America, USA, Canada, one-third of Europe, the Caribbean Islands, and Latin America.

I studied in the UK and moved to the United States. During that period, I had the opportunity of working with multinational companies which taught me how to deliver quality customer service in the business. As a world travelling backpacker myself, and travel expert for the Nepalese Himalayas, I started writing about my own country. Which I would love to share with you. In case you required free information about Nepal or join a group with our existing departure, (particularly If you are a solo hiker for the restricted area) please do not hesitate to visit my office in Thamel. We are located in the centre of Kathmandu called Thamel. I am happy to share a cup of Nepali tea and free information.

Our team at NEST has earned 5/5 star ratings on TripAdvisor. Don't forget to visit our customer feedback page on TripAdvisor. If you believe our expert team can be helpful in planning your next trip to Nepal, then please do not hesitate to contact me at I am also available 24x7 on WhatsApp  +977- 9851052042.
