Manaslu Circuit Trek (+Tsum Valley)

Hi, I and a friend of mine (I am 32 and he is 22, both French) are planning a 22 day trip in Nepal (we already booked our flight arriving in Katmandu on April 30th and Leaving May 21st). We identified good agency and are planning to do Manalsu Trek + Tsum Valley, the trip is more or less 3 days in Katmandu, around 6 in the Tsum Valley and the rest on Manaslu circuit (with 1 aclimatation day). The trip should be around 1000€ including porter and all accommodation and transport. We want to explore these areas cause this is the perfect mix between wild adventure, local culture, more remote paths and wonderful views with various climate. We are looking for like minded people to join us as the more the more fun 🙂

  1. Hi Remi,
    I’m also looking to do the Manaslu trail around late April time and it sounds like you’ve got a very similar idea of what you want to do! I was just wondering whether you’d be able to tell me a bit more about the guide you have organised!
    Cheers,
    Alex

    • I sent you a private message it will be easier to discuss on facebook

    • Hi, Alex. Are you still planning to do Manaslu in April?

  2. Hi Alex,

    Nice to hear about your plans. We are now 4 people booked with the guide and 2 porters. We chose a local guide who is from Manaslu area and knows well the area and is flexible. We got very good feelings and feedbacks about him. We wanted to discover Tsum Valley on top of Manaslu Circuit to explore this region as it seems to be really interesting, beautiful and traditional. The trek itself is from May 2nd (transport from Kathmandu) to May 19th (transport back to Kathmandu) but we are all staying a couple of days before and after in Kathmandu. Cost is now USD 1 090 per pax for the whole trip.

    Let me know if you have about other question!

    • We want to do the same thing but need to leave earlier, our plane leaves Kathmandu May 14. Does this price include permits? How did you find your guides? Thank you!

  3. Salut RĂ©mi,
    Je viens de mettre un message sur trekkingpartners car je suis Ă  la recherche de personnes effectuant le trek du Manaslu dĂ©but mai. J’arrive Ă  KTM le 2 mai au matin, et je serais assez intĂ©ressĂ© par un trek au Manaslu incluant l’exploration de la vallĂ©e de Tsum. Je connais dĂ©jĂ  Katmandou, j’ai fait un voyage au NĂ©pal en 2014, 26 jours de trek en indĂ©pendant dans le haut Khumbu, en partant de Jiri (6 jours et demi de marche jusqu’Ă  Namche Bazaar). Par consĂ©quent, sauter de l’avion dans un bus local ne me fait pas peur! Le seul hic, c’est l’obtention des permis, en 2014 j’y avais consacrĂ© un après-midi.
    Si accueillir une personne supplĂ©mentaire dans votre groupe ne te fait pas peur, et si tu penses que ma date d’arrivĂ©e n’est pas incompatible avec les tiennes, fais-moi signe. En 2014, j’ai randonnĂ© presque trois semaines avec un couple de jeunes AmĂ©ricains rencontrĂ©s dans le bus, et ça s’Ă©tait très bien passĂ©.
    Merci d’avance pour ta rĂ©ponse et, dans tous les cas, excellent trek Ă  venir!
    Claude

    • Bonjour Claude hĂ©las oui nous partons de Katmandou le 2 au matin tout est dĂ©jĂ  planifiĂ© Ă  ce niveau donc ca ne me semble pas compatible avec ton timing…

  4. Bonjour RĂ©my,
    Merci pour ta réponse, je te souhaite un bon trek avec ton groupe, normalement je pars 2 jours après toi, mais je ne passerai pas par Tsum Valley.
    Bons préparatifs, et peut-être à de ces quatre dans une vallée népalaise. Qui sait?
    Cordialement,
    Claude
