    You really should go to Tsum Valley if you go to Manaslu. In Tsum Valley
    you can get a good impression of the everyday life of the Tibetan
    villagers via homestay. The people are very friendly and western
    civilization hasn’t spoiled the area yet. You can experience the real
    Buddhist culture in the many gompa’s on the way. We saw very few
    tourists, what we think of as something positive.
