The Rupina La Pass and Tsum Valley Trek is a challenging and rewarding trekking route in the Manaslu region of Nepal. This trek combines the beauty of the Tsum Valley with the adventure of crossing the Rupina La Pass, making it a unique and less-traveled option for those seeking an off-the-beaten-path experience in the Himalayas.

The Rupina La Pass and Tsum Valley Trek is one of the best trekking routes in Nepal and provides unparalleled trekking adventures. It is located in the Manaslu Conservation Area of Nepal, which requires a special trekking permit. The trek will lead you through less traveled trails of lower Manaslu leading to Rupina La Pass which lies at an altitude of 4610m.

You will get to witness breath-taking views of mountains like Ganesh Himal (7,422 m), Mt. Himalchuli (7,853 m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163 m), and Shringi Himal (7,161 m) as you walk along the trails and you will also be able to discover the culture, Himalayan scenery, wildlife, and vegetation, which will leave you spell-bound.
The Tsum Valley is a hidden gem in the Manaslu region known for its unique culture and stunning landscapes. You’ll pass through traditional Tibetan villages, Buddhist monasteries, and lush valleys.
The Rupina La Pass is a high-altitude pass at an elevation of approximately 4,720 meters (15,486 feet). Crossing the pass offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, including the Manaslu and Ganesh Himal ranges.

Tsum Valley Trek can also be embarked on as a combined trek with the Manaslu Circuit Trek.

Renowned as one of the most challenging trekking routes in Nepal, the Rupina La Pass offers unparalleled vistas of the Himalayan range, surpassing the visual delights of any other trail in the region. This trek is a true immersion into the authentic lifestyle, the raw beauty of nature, and the art of survival while traversing this rugged terrain. Whether it’s the warm embrace of homestays or savoring the local cuisine, the memories forged along this trail are priceless.

Embarking on the Rupina La Pass and Tsum Valley trek begins in the vibrant capital of Kathmandu, where we prepare ourselves for the adventure ahead. Our journey departs from Gorkha, initiating with relatively smooth and level terrains in the initial days.

As we progress, the landscape gradually transforms into rugged, rocky paths that present more challenging terrain. Engaging with the locals and embracing their way of life, the trail offers an unparalleled opportunity to connect with the hill tribes of Nepal. There may be stretches where we traverse for days without encountering significant settlements, a testament to the remoteness of this region in our modern world.

Tsum Valley, nestled within the trek, provides an equal share of delights, showcasing some of the most stunning destinations within the Manaslu region. With the guidance of experienced Manaslu guides accompanying us, we can extract the utmost from this magnificent trekking experience.

Seasons To Avoid For Rupina La Pass and Tsum Valley Trek

The Rupina La Pass and Tsum Valley Trek can be a challenging adventure, and choosing the right season is crucial to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
Here are certain seasons that one must avoid:

Monsoon Season (June to August): This is the least favorable time for the trek as the monsoon rains can make the trails slippery, muddy, and prone to landslides.
Cloud cover often obscures mountain views, and heavy rainfall can disrupt travel plans. Leeches can be abundant in the forests during the monsoon, making the trek uncomfortable.

Winter Season (December to February): Winter is another season that must be avoided for embarking on this trek as it brings cold temperatures, especially at higher altitudes, making trekking in the region extremely challenging. Snowfall can block high mountain passes like Rupina La, making them inaccessible and increasing the risk of avalanches.

While the monsoon season ends in September, the trails may still be wet and slippery, and there’s a risk of landslides. The skies can be hazy from the residual moisture, affecting mountain views.
