Tsum Valley Trekking

Tsum Valley Trekking is an amazing trek in the unspoiled region of the Tsum valley, near the Manaslu region. The journey takes the trekkers in the rural mystic region of the northwest Nepal. Tsum valley has diverse features, that comes from the Tibetan word Tsombo. This trekking is highly rewarded with the Tibetan style Buddhists lifestyle, and during the trek our guests can explore several monasteries, chhortens and mani walls. Buddhist devotees like to visit this place, because Buddhist saint Milarepa is believed to have meditated in this valley.

The Tsum valley is beautifully surrounded by the Himalayan region. They are the Boudha Himal (6672m), Himalchuli (7893m),Ganesh Himal (7422m) and Sringi Himal (7187m) . This hidden valley at the same time is significant for preserving ancient monasteries and virtual Buddhist customs. One of the distinct beliefs of the villagers is that, they believe in the existence of Yeti the snowman and some of the old people report that they have seen it. The trek to Tsum valley begins from the Soti Khola and heads along the trail of the Manaslu Circuit Trekking. It crosses many ethnic villages as Jagat, Philim, Mu Gompa, Dumje, Tatopani and others. There is a natural hot spring in the Tatopani village. It is a wonderful reward in the Tsum Valley trekking trip, which is also a cure for several skin diseases. The trail is rugged and it goes through the lush forests of oak, rhododendron and pines. This trail was blocked for a long time and opened lately.The well preserved and sacred Tsum Valley is a great destination in Nepal.
