MANASLU AND TSUM VALLEY
A lesser-known massif than its cousins Everest and Annapurna, it is no less magnificent. The little-known Tsum Valley will plunge you into a Tibetan Buddhist atmosphere, while the Larkya Pass (5106m), the highest point of this trek, will take you all the way around this majestic massif.
