Nepal is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of spirituality and happiness. This is so, at least in part, not despite the country’s poverty but because of it.
This amazing country where inner rewards are valued more highly than material ones offers lessons, both in personal growth and in leadership. Here the two are always intertwined. Thus, Nepal offers an almost perfect opportunity to discover and make use of your untapped potential of body, mind and soul.
Thirteen days in Nepal combining Royal valley sightseeing, vigorous trekking, amazing mountains, great power places, staying in Serang Gompa – a Buddhist monastery at high altitude – and quiet time for introspection will lead you to reach again the peaks of yourself. Enjoy the lessons in leadership from the Himalayas. Enjoy a different life.
Both the Nubri and Tsum Valleys are known as “Beyul”, a sacred Valley that was blessed and designated as a place of refuge by Guru Rinpoche. The Valley also lies within the Kyimlung Valley, meaning the “Valley of Happiness.” For these reasons, and among others, the Manaslu Trek is quickly becoming one of the most popular treks in Nepal.
With help from our local guides, trek to little known places of beauty and sanctity, immerse in the local culture and traditions, and visit the Serang Monastery & School. Himalayan Tahr Treks is a team of locals dedicated to empowering the local Nubri-Tsum community through creating opportunities and engaging in philanthropy.
13 days in pure spiritual environment and nature. The scope: support an amazing educational project: the Serang Basic school at 3.500m altitude. Group Size: min 4 people, max. 9 people.

MANASLU TREK DESCRIPTION
Due to rapid development, Nepal’s remote and untouched Himalayan regions have undergone transformational changes for better and for worse. The renowned Annapurna Circuit now has roads along the entire route with jeeps racing the entire way, and the Everest region has been long obsolete of its traditional style houses. However, the Tsum-Nubri Valleys along the apex of the Manaslu Circuit remain virtually untouched by outside development and were opened to trekkers relatively recently. Both the Nubri and Tsum Valleys are known as “Beyul”, a sacred Valley that was blessed and designated as a place of refuge by Guru Rinpoche. The Valley also lies within the Kyimolung Valley, meaning the “Valley of Happiness.” For these reasons, and among others, the Manaslu Trek is quickly becoming the most popular trek in Nepal. The trek is centered around Mt. Manaslu, the world’s eighth highest mountain at 8,163 meters (26,781 ft.). Like the Everest and Annapurna Circuit, the Manaslu Circuit also offers humbling Himalayan scenery, high mountain passes, rich biodiversity, and the rewarding journeys to get there. This awe-inspiring natural beauty is only accentuated by the rich culture and traditions that exist there. The Manaslu Trek’s serenity and cultural richness provides an authentic experience unlike anywhere else, and it can only be tapped into with the help of our locals who was shaped by the very area they are guiding. Building upon years of family and personal knowledge, locality, and heritage, we are able to bring you this experience. Below is a sample itinerary for this journey. All aspects of the itinerary can be customized, just let us know.
All the profit of this trek goes to Serang Basic School and its project in Bihi. That means the trekking company is directly funding this monastery and its Serang Basic School project.
