A hidden gem – Tsum valley is one of world’s remote Himalayan valleys, bordering with Tibet. Due to its remoteness, this sacred valley and its people have been bypassed by development for centuries, opening for trekking only in 2008. As a result, the unique culture of this valley has remained intact which can still be witnessed in Tsum valley trek. There are historic monasteries, Rachel Gompa and Mu Gompa nestled in picturesque valleys.
Geographically spectacular and culturally fascinated. Off the beaten path. The secret Tibetan Buddhist land. Tsum valley is β€œyour” valley πŸ’Ž

Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek is in one of the valley in Nepal which is very far from the city and hazards of the crowds. As stated by my friend from Tsum valley, this is one of the beautiful lands which are unchanged from years ago to till today. Tsum valley trekking can be done combining with Manaslu circuit Trek, which in combined becomes Manaslu Tsum Valley Trek.

It is said that “Yeti“, “A Snowman” is repeatedly seen in this area of Tsum Valley, thus this trail is famous and rising up with popularity.Β  Trekkers get glances of Mt. Manaslu, Bouddha, Himchuli, Ganesh, Singri, Tsum Valley and many other unnamed Himalayas.

Apart from the stunning Himalaya this trail also comprises the most stunning landscape in the hidden world. Tsum valley is a virgin destination located at the inner mountain behind the towering hills. One of the best destinations for those who love walking in a less crowded area is for sure Tsum valley.

Culture and Local Tradition

Buddhist hidden valley is the residence of many fests like Lhosar, Dhacyhang, Saka Dawa, Faning & many others. This trail comprises the dominance of Buddhist people, thus trekking to this secret land makes trekkers see new life, new people and their antique tradition, unique culture and devotion to Buddha.

Very kind people on the trail do not hesitate to involve with you and well- come you to their home if you want. During the trek, we reach to a place called Tato pani where we take shower in natural hot water. Here “tato” means “hot” and “pani” means “water in Nepal”. Below is the suggested itinerary for trekking to Tsum valley which can be customized as per your vacation, contact us for a combined itinerary.

Best Season for Tsum valley Trek

Alike to other trekking regions in Nepal; Tsum valley trek is suitable in autumn and Spring. Autumn = September, October, November whereas, Spring = March, April & May.

However, Tsum valley has enough villages and tea house along the trekking route to trek in other season as well. Trekking in monsoon is not recommended as there are numerous chances of landslide along the trekking route.

Trekking to Manaslu in winter is completely fine if you can ignore the temperature to negative 10 degree Celsius.

Trek Difficulty

Tsum valley trek is not a difficult trek at all. It is a trek in the remote destination, so accommodation and food might not be good enough, but the trekking trail is all right.

If you can forget your luxury for few days, Tsum valley trek will give you a best adventure in your Nepal trip. Exploring the hidden part of Nepal, this trek is more than just a trek.
