Tsum Valley Trekking

17 DAYS
  • 3
  • 2
The Tsum Valley is one of the most secluded valleys in Nepal. Situated in the Manaslu region, high up near the Tibetan border, the whole area has a definite Tibetan Buddhist feel to it and is quite different from the surrounding countryside. A restricted area until 2008, Tsum Valley is relatively un-trekked by hikers, yet the starting point is only 7 hours drive from Kathmandu. Most of the 14 days are trekked at altitudes over 3,000m. With the altitude and with walking days stretching from 5 to 7 hours, a fairly good level of fitness is required for this trek.

The trail passes through pine forests, along raging rivers with cascading waterfalls and incredible suspension bridges, through fascinating villages and to several gompas, monasteries, mani walls, and stupas, not to mention Milarepa’s Cave. On display are the mountain ranges of Himalchuli (7,893m), Ganesh Himal (7,140m), Manaslu (8,163m), Churke Himal and the Poshyop Glacier.

 

For trekkers who are fascinated by Tibetan culture as well as mountains, Tsum Valley offers them the opportunity to witness Tibetan Buddhist people in their villages, monks and nuns in their respective religious orders, and the spectacular views of the Himalayas in an almost pilgrimage like trek into this hidden valley.
