The Buri Gandaki river originates in the Himalayan glaciers at the border with Tibet and flows south, cutting off the Manaslu Himal from the Ganesh Himal to the east, creating a deep light-excluding canyon that makes trekking around Manaslu more difficult than most in Nepal.
The journey is made up of a lot of climbing and descending, with frequent ascents and descents over ridges and down difficult pathways on cliffs face.
The Tsum Valley section of the trek is located at elevations above 3,000m, which was formerly off-limits until 2008. This place is a genuine hidden gem in this area, with century-old Tibetan customs prevailing in the basin and spectacular mountain views of the Ganesh Himal from the valley’s holy Buddhist pilgrimage sites. The Milarepa’s cave, which features magnificent mountain views of the Ganesh Himal, is located near the base of this peak.
The higher section heads north-northwest to Larkya La (5,125 meters), giving a close-up look at the world’s eight tallest peaks: Manaslu Himal, which has a steep climb that frequently passes through snow and ice and reaches the top is considered one of the most dramatic pass crossings in the Himalayas.
After getting to Besishar, you may reach Pokhara in 5 hours Pokhara, a lovely city with magnificent lake views is a fantastic location to unwind your legs after the long trek. There are many things to do here to keep you occupied.
Kathmandu is a cultural center, therefore if you like visiting religious monuments, you may extend your visit by a few more days to see some of UNESCO’s heritage in the valley, such as Pashupatinath, Nepal’s sacred Hindu temple, and Bouddhanath, Nepal’s largest Buddhist stupa.
Basic tea house trekking is a Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek that may be done in the spring (Mar-May) when rhododendron blooms in many regions add to the attractiveness, and in the fall (Sep-Dec) when the sky is usually clear with spectacular views.
