As continual supporters of Community Action Nepal we are pleased to announce that their Trekking arm ‘Community Action Treks’ are putting on a Trek to the Tsum Valley, North Gorkha region of Nepal from 3rd to 23rd November.
Land-only duration will be 21 days (Kathmandu to Kathmandu).
Trekking Days – 15 Days
Maximum Altitude – 3,361 Metres (circa 11,000 feet)
The brochure summary is as follows:-
Join us to visit some of Community Action Nepal’s projects in the beautiful Manaslu region. The Tsum Valley is a beautiful and culturally rich valley forking east off the Manaslu circuit bordering Tibet. Standing at 8,163m, east of the Annapurna in central Nepal is Manaslu, the eighth highest peak in the world. The Manaslu conservation area is a remote region. Until quite recently, access to the area was restricted yet now that it has opened up it still attracts far fewer trekkers than the very popular Annapurna circuit. With few villages, hot springs and dense sub-tropical forests; the complete isolation of the hidden valley of happiness was blessed by Padmashamva centuries ago. You will visit six of Community Action Nepal’s project sites and spend time with CAN trustees and staff.
Overnight accommodation during the trek will be in a variety of Lodges as well as ‘Overnight Homestay’s’.
For anyone sharing a love of Nepal & it’s people or be you someone who wants to experience Nepal for the very first time it sounds like a great opportunity not to be missed.
If you are a supporter of our Reach Out for Nepal fund & are interested in this trek, Paul would love to hear from you.
More details can be found by visiting canepal.org.uk/events.
Whilst posting this an update as well that we will soon be finalising our Reach Out for Nepal Day for 2023. It will be some time in middle August with Paul probably planning to jog half a dozen or so routes of varying distances & technicality between sunrise & sunset. He hopes that you’ll be able to join him for one or more of these runs & that it’ll be a bit easier for him than last year, he keeps quoting ‘he’s 57 now, you know’, shame:) Watch this space for more details soon.
