TSUM VALLEY TREK "The Hidden Paradise"

Located forty miles east of Annapurna, Manaslu (also called Kutang), the eighth highest mountain in the world, dominates the Gurkha massif. The name Manaslu is derived from the Sanskrit word Manasa meaning "Mountain of the Spirit". Manaslu is the highest peak in the Lamjung district and is located about forty miles east of Annapurna, the world's tenth highest mountain. The mountain's long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and culminate in a peak that towers steeply above its surrounding landscape, and is a dominant feature when viewed from a far. When trekking through the Manaslu region, 10 peaks over 6,500m. are visible, including ones over 7,000m.

The Manaslu region offers a variety of trekking options. The region comprises sub-tropical foothills of the Himalaya to arid Trans-Himalayan high pastures bordering Tibet. The famous Manaslu trekking route goes around the Manaslu massif over the pass down to Annapurna. The trekking trail follows an ancient salt-trading route along the Budhi Gandaki River. The region is dotted with austere monasteries, maniwalls, chortens and other Buddhist religious landmarks. The traditional faith of non-violence and compassion augments the wild-life diversity of the region. Unlike many other regions, this valley is a sanctuary to many highly endangered animals, including Snow Leopards and Pandas. Over 110 species of birds, 33 mammals, 11 butterflies and 3 reptiles have been recorded. The valley basin has rich acetone diversity and includes nineteen different types of forests, most prominently Rhododendron, and also Himalayan blue pine, which is flanked by Ganesh Himal and the Sringi ranges.
