Tsum Valley really Sum Up All Adventure

Tsum Valley really Sum Up All Adventure


After Manaslu trekking in last November, I really believe that trekking in Nepal is really best. My Tsum Valley trek was more wonderful by the effort of the Luxury Holidays Nepal. They really did great work, and I was quite impressed with their working style. Meals, Rooms, hotels, transportations, everything was so nice. Tour guide and trek guide both are really so nice, I personally like to thanks them. 

Talking about, Tsum valley trek, I found it is one best classical trekking route in Nepal. The view of Mt.Manaslu, Mt.Himchuli, and Mt.Ganesh was the extremely magnificent and the unique culture of Tibetan was also so fabulous and unspoiled ecosystem. I would recommend others also to trek in this place once in life and also choose this team as your trek operator. Thank you!!

We had an amazing time on our Manaslu trek with Luxury Holidays Nepal. LHN did a wonderful job planning how far trek each day and was the perfect amount of challenge to feel a sense of accomplishment and exercise, but not get too exhausted!!. Our guide was excellent, energetic and helpful with every aspect of the trek and have very interesting Knowledge about the wildlife and culture on Manaslu trekking. The trek offers me the incredible view of mountain and sunrise-sunset from the row of Himalayas. The team was so professional way that we don’t need to worry anything and LHN also provided the Luxury Hotel and Room in such a crowd of tourists. Everything was perfect and smooth! I also saw the Tourist trekkers on the trial of trekking. It felt like we are in own country. So, I highly recommend the Luxury Holidays Nepal Pvt. Ltd company.

A Mesmerizing View from Tsum Valley:

A Mesmerizing View from Tsum Valley:


I had completed the 19 days in Manaslu Tsum valley trek solo with guide Ram and the team of Luxury Holidays Nepal. The journey from the first moment was awesome and helpful from the LHN Company. The guide was great and very attentive to us and good knowledge about the trail around the Manaslu valley. We have the amazing experience with LHN from the low altitude Red Rhododendron forest to the Larke pass surrounded by snowcapped peaks and mountains, waterfalls, huge primordial forests, and the cultural village was all stunning where we can’t remove our eyes from this nature. I loved it!! They also make sure everything was good and choose which one is best for our trek with great hotels and rooms with perfect accommodations. The trek really had everything memorable. When I come back to Nepal, I will be sure to go trekking with Luxury Holidays Nepal and highly recommend it.

Walking Among The Cloud, Tsum Valley

Walking Among The Cloud, Tsum Valley


From the very first moment walking into the Luxury Holiday office, we felt very comfortable and knew that we had made a good choice. LHN members waited around 2 hours at the airport due to the delay of the flight. They done a great arrangement of hotels room, fell amazing and awesome with their services and attentive toward us. Shyam was our guide and extremely knowledgeable due to his extensive guiding all over Nepal. We were doing this as part of a world trip. We planned to do the Manaslu circuit and link up to the Annapurna circuit directly after. The plan was recommended to do the Tsum valley on the Manaslu trek to assist in acclimatization prior to attempting the high passes. It was a fantastic recommendation as was far less busy than other sections and the scenery was magnificent from the top of the valley. The cloud was so near that we felt walking into them. It was really mesmerizing view and experience in a lifetime. We would highly recommend Luxury Holiday Nepal and Guide, to assist you in tailoring your trekking requirement in Nepal.

A general rule of thumb for tipping is from USD 40 to USD 70 per Traveler, depending on the length of the trek. Porters do appreciate a personal tip, although it is not uncommon for the Guide and his Porters to pool the tips they have collected before splitting it amongst themselves, with the Guide is getting a little more for overseeing the welfare and safety of both the Travelers and Porters as a whole. That said, this is just a guide and you may tip, however much you think is appropriate for the services rendered which made your trip a memorable one.
