The Manaslu & Tsum Valley region is the fastest growing trekking destination in Nepal. Now in its second edition, this exciting new guidebook fills the void in the market to this area. Manaslu and the Tsum Valley have become the new trekking destination for both experienced and novice trekkers. 

As if these two treks were not enough to savour, the book also introduces new treks in the Lower Manaslu area around historic Gorkha, as far north as the Rupina La route. Also within the book are some fledgling routes below little-known Ganesh Himal, including the Ruby Valley.

It may not have the aura of Everest or Annapurna, but the majestic mountain of Manaslu (8163m) has a remote charm that calls on all trekkers to discover the undiscovered. Lush forests, terraced hillsides, mysterious canyons, gargantuan summits and Buddhist culture are enticing. For so long beyond the horizon, the Tsum Valley is astonishing and secretive. Hilltop monasteries, traditional villages, colourful people, enigmatic yaks and hundreds of mani walls, chortens and kani gates add to the compulsive blend. 

Go soon to trek around Manaslu and the Tsum Valley!
