Tsum valley trek – Nepal

Tsum valley trekking view

The remote Tsum Valley is one of the hidden gems of Nepal. Tsum Valley is known as the Beyul Kyimolung, the holy hidden valley of happiness, first described by Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) in the eighth century. Milarepa meditated in the caves of Piren Phu and there are centuries old nunneries.Tsum valley trek is sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley trekking around the northern part of Gorkha district of Nepal.Tsum Valley Trekking route heads up through the riverside of Budhi Gandaki River or Gorkha slightly uphill to high altitude areas where the most of the valleys and village you will meet are remote, untouched and locally civilized on their own cultural and traditional values.Most the villages are represented by Gurung, The Brave Gurkha people.

The Manaslu Valley Trek is more remote and spectacular than many, with rough steep tracks and less than luxurious accommodation. It is culturally fascinating with strong continuinglinks to Tibet in the upper Buri Gandaki (called Nupri ‘the western mountains’) and the Tsum Valley, and even has the Larkya La (5160m) as a challenge. The views of Mt Manaslu, eighth highest mountain in the world, are marvellous and close.The Tibetan Buddhist culture is still very prevalent in Tsum and the scenery is just stunning, with beautiful forests and countryside, with Ganesh Himal towering above the valley. Tsum comes from the Tibetan word ‘Tsombo’, which means vivid and after visiting Tsum, you can only agree.Trekking to Tsum valley offers you numbers of white Himalayan snowcapped mountains of the northern Nepal.
