Tsum Valley Trek

The Tsum valley is also known as hidden valley and is located to the north-west part from Kathmandu between Ganesh himal and Manaslu region (the 7th highest mountain) of Nepal. The Tsum Valley lies between Manaslu, Baudha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Sringi Himal to the north and Ganesh Himal to the south. This trekking route was only opened for foreigners since October of 2007. The word Tsum is taken from the Tibetan word ‘Tsombo’ which means vivid. True to its name, Tsum valley has closely protected its distinct and natural beauty of streams, vegetation, mountain, waterfalls, springs and ancient relics.

One of the best features of Tsum valley trek is its people, their culture and lifestyle. Tsum Valley was a restricted area for trekkers before 2007. Now, it is in protected trekking zone. The Tsum Valley is inhabited by people following Buddhism. The Tsum valley was once a great kingdom and its remains are still visible. Due to lack of proper road facilities and other physical infrastructure, Tsum valley and its people have been living separately from the mainstream development. This relative isolation has helped preserve the unique culture of Tsum valley till date.

The valley is followed by Shear Khola, whose origin is the western glacier of Ganesh Himal along with east and southern glaciers of Sringi Himal. Tsum valley is rich in wildlife, and the main featured wildlife in Tsum Valley Trek is Himalayan Thar and Blue Sheep. Tsum valley trek also offers the visit to some historic and unique monasteries.
