Manaslu and Tsum Circuit Trek

Hello everyone!

Planning on doing a trek in Manaslu as soon as I can, likely end of November-beginning of December (as i’ve heard mid december most of the locals from there are heading back to the cities). I am quite flexible as I intend to stay in Nepal for 1-2months, and I would be gladly sharing the cost of a guide with some cool partners. 🙂

I am willing to go explore the tsum valley (which seems amazing for its landscape and preserved local life – as it just opened to the tourists 4 years ago), either i’ll do the full manaslu circuit with a few days spent on tsum valley or we could go full on tsum valley for one week then come back to manaslu starting point if you’re keen on that. Will depend of you guys.

I wish i could do the trek without a guide as its usually the way i trek (no guide or porters) but well its mandatory so lets try to deal with that!

I have already done the Everest base camp and Annapurna circuit, and I cannot wait to discover Manaslu!


Update : i have contacted a good agency which has been advised by a lot of people : Osho Vision. They have prepared a 19 days trek for me including manaslu and 3 days in sum valley with a guide for 25$/day. Below the details of the costs :
-Manaslu permit 90$
-Tsum permit : 30$
– ACAP permit : 21$
– MCAP permit : 21$
-Transport : local bus 8$ one way
– Guide (no porter), if we are at least 2 would be 12,5$/day (total of 237$)

Total of 407$/person (not including the 10% service charge on the total price for 2)

*If we cut the Tsum valley part it would be a 15-16 days trek for about 330$ (dont need the Tsum permit and 3 less days of guide)

*A 12-15 days trek to the Tsum valley only would be even cheaper, around 200$ (no need of ACAP/MCAP/Manaslu permit)

We can leave any day.

  1. Hello, How are you ?
    I am wondering if you have left yet for this trip? I am hoping also to treck either Manaslu or Tsum Valley. I also like usually to treck alone or certainly with no porter nor guide, but its also wonderful to meet new people. I know a very nice man in Pokhara who is a registered guide who may be able to guide.
    I have a phone if you wish to contact me .. 00447968512988. Uk number still so possibly better via facebook or here. I am hoping to set off in the next couple of days from pokhara .. Be well and safe travels if we do not meet. X mary
