Variety of meals are available especially noodles, soups, and rice dishes; on some routes, there will be a limited choice and on some routes teahouses only provide local Nepali dish, Dhal Bhat (lentil and rice).

Physical Fitness

It is an easy and moderate trek that takes you away from your hometown to have some good quality time. It is the perfect destination for trekkers who love to walk steadily 4-5 hours a day. We have met people from different walks of life, even first-time travelers can easily pass the trek, and all you need to do is a regular exercise to accomplish this trek. Past experience of any hiking or trekking activities is always a plus.

Best time to travel

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to December) are usually known as the best season to do a trek. You are much more likely to see clear views throughout the year however we do not suggest you travel in monsoon season.

The Tsum Valley Manaslu Circuit trek was full of fun with the fantastic view of the Himalayas and exceptional landscape which were as beautiful as heaven. The people were so nice and friendly. Your country is really a gift from God which is so natural and untouched and feels like you came to heaven. Thanks to Mr. Ram and his team who made our trip successful and meaningful. I strongly recommend Sherpa Expedition and Trekking Nepal if you are thinking or planning of going to naturally Nepal.
