Best Seasons for Photography in Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit

The best seasons for photography in the Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit trekking routes are spring and autumn. Spring runs from March through May and is characterized by longer days with abundant sunlight. Autumn spans from September through November. During these seasons, days are generally bright with sunshine, allowing for clear views and pleasant walking conditions. However, skies can grow cloudy in late afternoons. Light rains and occasional snowfall in higher elevations are possibilities, and temperatures drop in early mornings and evenings.

Springtime sees the hills bursting with colorful wildflowers, especially rhododendrons, Nepal’s national flower. The following prime season is autumn, with much clearer views and walks benefiting from full daylight hours. However, days grow shorter. Mornings and late afternoons through nights take on cooler temperatures. Higher elevations may see intermittent snowfall.

Culture, Religion, and History

The lower, warmer areas surrounding Manaslu Valley where the trek is located consist of mixed tribes including Gurung, Magar, Hindu Bharamins, Chettries, and Newars, with some Bhot migrants from the high Manaslu and Tsum regions. Culture and religion blend Hindu and Buddhist influences at lower and mid-elevations up to Jagat and Philim villages. Beyond, the indigenous peoples of the high Tsum and Manaslu valleys through Dharapani in Manang strongly adhere to Buddhism, following ancient heritage and culture similar to neighboring Tibet given the nearby border.

Residents of the high Tsum Valley and Manaslu are known as Bhotia people, denoting Tibetan descent. Large monasteries appear from Namrung onward, lined with prayer walls and prayer wheels. “Tsum” means “valley of happiness” in an old Tibetan dialect, truly embodying a hidden, mythical Shangri-La where age-old Buddhist traditions persist.

The Manaslu region was historically traversed by the ancient Trans-Himalayan Salt Trade Route connecting Nepal and Tibet. Yaks and pack animals laden with goods traveled between the two countries. The base of Larkya La pass, now called Dharmasala or Phedi, was formerly named Larke Bazaar, where traders and merchants from Tibet, Gorkha, and as far as Manang would visit on market days.

Manaslu” derives from a Sanskrit term denoting the soul or spirit of God. Locals call their land Kutang, meaning a place blessed with good pastures and fertile fields. Mt. Manaslu at 8,163 meters stands as the world’s 8th highest peak, first successfully ascended on May 9, 1956 by a Japanese expedition supported by Nepali guide Gyalzen Norbu Sherpa.

The area was closed to outside visitors until 1991 when it re-opened for trekking under a special permit system, as Manaslu remains a restricted region. This protects the pristine environment while managing tourist flows due to the region’s proximity to Tibet/China. The Manaslu Conservation Area Project now safeguards the area.
