Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is lying between the Baudha Himal, Chule to the west, Spring Himal to the north, and Ganesh Himal to the south traditionally Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek was a culturally distinct, geographic area called ‘Tsum Iso Chuksum’ which suggests thirteen provinces ruled as one territory.
