‘Probably the first Comprehensive & Fascinating Pictorial Guide Book on Manaslu Region and Tsum Valley’

Himalayan Map House is delighted to announce the publication of the most awaited book for the first time with visual delights on Manaslu Region & Tsum Valley, situated along the ancient and revered pilgrimage of Beyul Kyimolung “the hidden valleys of happiness”.

This unique pictorial guide book is the result of more than two years long painstaking but productive collaboration between Himalayan Map House and Lopsang Chhiring Lama and Sonam Lama, a passionate photographer and an emerging author, who are native to  these secret and sacred Himalayan valleys recently being exposed to the modern world. They have attempted to introduce their place with their more than 3 dozens of rigorous walking experiences back and forth from their childhood. The photographs and documentation cover important places of Manaslu circuit and from the valley of Tsum. This booming trekking route starts from the altitude of a mere 600m of Arughat to the highest passes above 5000m such as the Larke La and Ngu La.

The book with high-quality photographs in true colors also provides more authentic and reliable information about the Manaslu and Tsum Valley for the intrepid trekkers, pilgrims, trekking agencies, guides and anyone interested in the Manaslu region and Tsum Valley.
