Tsum Valley Nepal

Tsum Valley

Discover the secret Tibetan Buddhist land lying at the edge of one of the most secluded Himalayan valleys. Tsum Valley is one of the world’s remotest Himalayan Valleys which was also a restricted region until recently. The trek to Tsum Valley takes you into the majestic surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. The region once being part of Tibet looks completely different from what you will find elsewhere in Nepal. The people of Tsum Valley or the Tsumbas belong to Tibetan origin with their own ancient form of dialect, art, culture and religion. Very few adventure travellers have made it to this high and mysterious valley, which used to be an important trade link with Tibet. In the initial days, we trek the route of the Manaslu Circuit Trek. The Tsum Valley lies on the northern part of Manaslu and used to be a restricted area until 2008. The region is still less exposed in comparison to other touristy areas, with relatively virgin and less beaten paths in comparison to the more popular regions. Another highlight of this trek which is very special is that you will be invited to stay at your guides home in his remote village on the way to Tsum. Here you will enjoy the unique experience of living and working with the family on their farm.
