Trip Overview

Tsum Valley Trek is one of the world’s remote Valleys that takes you into the majestic surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and other panoramic Himal ranges, situated west-northern part of Kathmandu which is a restricted Region. The people of Valley or the Tsumbas are of Tibetan origin with their ancient form of dialect, art, culture, and religion.  The Tsum people have their way of family life, which is surprising for polyandry custom.

The trek starts from Arughat, approximately an hour’s drive from Kathmandu, and then the trek ascends the Valley on a good trail through a mix of dense forest, terraced fields, and hill villages. When we leave the main Trail for the Tsum Valley, we get a feeling of entering truly into the hidden valley.  After we pass through the alpine forests and glacial rivers, and enjoy the warm hospitality. We head to the lower Gandaki regions of Liding, Machhakhola, Jagat, and Philim.   Other attractions are, Rachen Gompa, Mu Gompa, and  Dephyudonma Gompa in this Region. The region once part of Tibet looks completely different and  Very few adventure seekers have visited this high and mysterious valley. The region is less exposed in comparison to other touristy areas, with relatively virgin and less beaten Route in Nepal

Accommodation: hotel in Kathmandu. Homestay / Guesthouses during trekking.
