Tsum Valley & Manaslu

Manaslu is a serrated "wall of snow and ice hanging in the sky". The three sides of the mountain fall in steps to terraces down below.

Manaslu also known as Kutang, the eighth highest mountain of the world, and is located in the west-central part of Nepal. Its name, typically known as “Mountain of the Spirit”, came from the Sankrit word ‘Manasa’, which means “intellect” or “soul”. Manaslu at 8,156 mtr. (26,759 ft) above sea level, is located around forty miles, east of Annapurna. 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 afar. The Manaslu region offers a variety of trekking options. The popular Manaslu trekking route of 177 kilometer, skirts the Manaslu massif over the pass down to Annapurna.

There are two ethnicities mainly inhabiting this region, Nubri and Tsum. The branching off, of the river at Chhikur, divides these two ethnic domains. While Nubri has been frequently visited after Nepal opened itself for the tourism in 1950, Tsum still retains much of its traditional culture, art, and tradition. In the central hills of the region, Gurung and Bhotia are the main ethnic group of this region. Tibetan ethnicity dominates the scene as can be discerned from their flat roofed houses, and they are distinctly Buddhists. The region is dotted with Monasteries, Maniwall, Chortens and other Buddhist religious landmarks. The traditional faith of non-violence and compassion augments the wildlife diversity of the region.

Manaslu Conservation Area has been established with the primary objective of achieving conservation and sustainable management of the delimited area, which includes Manaslu.
