    Best Season for Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek

    Manaslu and Tsum Valley trek

    This beautiful expedition in the solitude of the Manaslu region is best suited for the ideal peak seasons as other seasons further elevate the difficulty factors of its remote route. Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek are most enjoyable during the peak season like spring (March- May) and autumn (September- November). As you will be traversing across the six climatic zones (tropical, sub-tropical zone, temperate, sub-alpine, alpine, and arctic zone) in this epic adventure of the Himalayas, the weather and temperature of the region are significant factors when it comes to an enjoyable and comfortable experience.

    The weather and temperature during both spring and autumn seasons are warm and on the warmer side, similarly, the days are bright with mostly clear skies. The temperature of the Manaslu region is around 15°C- 20 °C in the daytime and can drop upto 6°C or minus degrees at night and early mornings. In comparison, the autumn season is on the breezy side as the mild temperature of 13°C- 19 °C encourages the day’s adventure; the mornings and nights in this season are especially chill and breezy making it one of the best seasons for trekking adventure.

    If you are planning your adventure for the off-season like monsoon (June- August) and Winter (December- February), you might not be able to enjoy the Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek exploration as much as other peak seasons. Especially during the monsoon which sees every rainfall can halt the advancement for a tiring number of days, similarly, the slippery trails and risk of landslides contribute to the risk factors during this season. Monsson is the summer season in Nepal, so when you are not dealing with the depressing downpours the hot temperature will make the trekking a bit challenging (temperature during the monsoon, 15°C- 25°C).

    On the other hand, winter is the harshest season for the adventure due to the cold freezing climate. The normal temperature of the region is around -6°C to -10°C during even the daytime at the higher elevations and trails are mostly covered in snow making it even difficult to overcome even a simple trekking route.

    Trek Difficulty

    Unlike other high-trekking adventures in Nepal, you don’t have to spend a significant amount of time above 4,000 meters elevation in Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek. This beautiful expedition is at a moderate elevation, however, it also doesn’t mean that this Himalayan expedition is like a walk in the park either. Due to its difficulty factors like trek distance, relatively high elevation, and remoteness, including physical and mental challenges, the Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek has been graded a ‘moderate’ level of difficulty.

    It means that without a proper amount of preparation and determination, this trekking expedition can be a challenging adventure. Here are some brief elaborations on the major difficulty factor of this trekking expedition.

    Trekking Distance:

    This 19-day Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek is a long expedition of the Himalayas that can be physically exhausting if you haven't trained enough. Although it is a slow-paced adventure, you will be trekking for about 5- 6 hours (approx 15- 20 km) on average during each day of the expedition. Still, you get two days to acclimatize properly and get enough rest in between to move along the trail more comfortably.

    Risks of Altitude Sickness:

    It is not new news that with the rise in the elevation points the risk of getting altitude sickness also potentially rises. As the risk for altitude sickness increases over 2,500 meters, you need to pay heed to the causes of altitude sickness like dizziness, nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath, and insomnia. Staying hydrated throughout the expedition, eating a healthy balanced diet, and getting enough rest is the best remedy to tackle altitude sickness.

    Remoteness:

    As Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek is a remote exploration that explores the northern prospects of the Manaslu region, the services of the region are pretty much limited. In general, the food and accommodation facilities throughout this remote exploration are pretty much basic, the same goes for transportation, medical facilities, and other modern amenities. So, you have to make peace with yourself for this journey in solitude that takes you farther from a luxurious and modern lifestyle.

    Training and Preparation

You won’t find Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek very difficult if you have previous experience in high-altitude adventure. However, if you are a trekking enthusiast who has never been in a high-altitude exploration, you need to prepare at least 4- 6 weeks before this trek starts. If you already are in sports or exercise, then you can assess your own physical ability and determine how much you have to train.

    Here are some of the exercises that you can include in your training program for the trek:

    Strength and Endurance Exercises: When it comes to the high altitude long day of adventure, you need to enhance your strength and endurance level. You won’t get drained away easily and can endure the long hours of adventure carrying your stuff; your exploration becomes more enjoyable when you are not trying to catch a breather every other minute.

    Exercise like planks, deadlifts, weight lifts, pushups, bicep curls, squats, lunges, etc. works best for strength and endurance training. You can also hike up on natural inclining trails carrying a significant weight in your backpack, this will help you get accustomed to the trail demand of the Himalayan region.

    Cardiovascular Exercises: Focussing on cardiovascular exercises improves your body’s capability to acclimatize properly to the high altitude. These exercises improve your flexibility and enhance your adaptability for the long hours of trekking with the rising altitude. Jogging, cycling, jumping rope, dancing, lunges, rowing, etc. are some exercises you could include in your training program to improve your cardiovascular ability.

    Note: For this trekking adventure in the Himalayas, it is recommended that you should at least have a basic level of fitness with good health conditions. If you have any medical conditions you should consult your physician about the expedition.

        Marvel is Simply the Best!

        Marvel Adventures was amazing at arranging my dream trip in the Himalayas. Took a group trek along the Manaslu Circuit/Tsum Valley for 19 days in November. Due to a flight cancellation, I arrived to Katmandu 48 hours late. Nir, the owner of Marvel Adventures, was instrumental in arranging for me to get to the trailhead by private jeep just in time to start the trek. Nir even met me at the airport, suppli3d me with and down jacket & sleeping bag and dropped me off. Now that's service! He assured me that everything would be fine and made good on his promises. He was very communicative, responsive and understanding. Nir ensured that my trek to Nepal was the trip of a lifetime. Will not hesitate to book with this local Katmandu company again because of their impeccable customer service. Anyone looking for a dream trek in Nepal should look no further than Marvel Adventure!
