Tsum Valley Trekking

Tsum Valley Trekking

Tsum valley is newly opened and promoted trekking Destinations in Nepal.It is more remote and spectacular than any other treks. This hidden valley of Tsum is situated to the north of Gorkha, against the majestic backdrop of the Ganesh, Sringi, Boudha Himalayan range full of untouched forest. There are lots to explore in this serene Himalayan valley - ancient art, culture and religion of the local people of Tibetan origin who speak their own dialect. People in Tsum Valley still practice polyandry system and they have their own unique culture, tradition, & dialect.They celebrate unique festivals like Lhosar, Dhacyhang, Saka Dawa,Faning & many others. While trekking, one can see the trails are strewn with artistic chortens and lined with Mani walls made of thousands of stone slabs carved with drawings of deities and inscribed with prayers. At one of the monasteries a Buddhist monk teaches about the basics of Buddhism, helps coordinate a special blessing ceremony and gives a brief meditation sessions for interested clients.

The altitude of Tsum Valley trek varies from 1905m in Lhokpa to over 5093m at Ngula Dhojhyang pass on the Tibatan border. The circuit traverses across Tsum Valley of Manaslu region in Nepal to that of southern parts of Tibet. The Buddhist saint Milarepa is believed to have meditated in one of the caves of these mountains. Since this sacred valley and its people have been bypassed by economic development for centuries, the people are still poor.But their unique culture has remained intact.Here the locals depend onagriculture, tend to yaks and trade with Tibet.

Tsum valley trekking begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Aarughat Bazaar. From Arughat Bazaar we follow a trail up the Budi Gandaki River valley through terraced fields, dense forest and many virgin ethnic villages of Liding, Machhakhola, Jagat and Phidim.While trekking through these villages you will enjoy warm hospitality of the local villagers.

3 of us we had been Nepal for Trekking 5 years ago, I went on a 2 weeks trek around the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal... AMAZING! Bishnu was our fantastic guide and I look forward to organizing our next trek with him in the future. Thanks so much for an awesome trek!
