Tsum Valley Trekking - 17-21 Days

Tsum Valley TrekkingAptly called the "hidden valley", Tsum valley is located in the remote northern Gorkha region of Nepal. The valley is nestled between the Baudha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the north. Because of its distant location and inadequate information and promotion, the trekking route to this region was only opened in October, 2007.

'Tsum' which is derived from the Tibetan word 'Tsombo' means vivid. True to its meaning, Tsum valley until this date has closely guarded its distinct and natural treasures of clear streams, teeming vegetation, towering mountains, cascading waterfalls, unspoiled hot springs and ancient relics. One of the interesting features of this trek is the people you will encounter, with their unique culture and age-old lifestyle that they still follow.
