Ole Andersen and Ingrid Sorensen from Kipling Travels made a recce trip to Manaslu this Spring(February, 2012). Although they planned to complete the Manaslu circuit, they had to make a detour to Tsum Valley because of bad weather and heavy snowfall. Here are some of the amazing pictures from their trek. The trek Sirdar was Nima Tamang.
