Tsum, a Tibetan word “Tsombo”, which stands for vivid, is a hidden valley situated in the east of Manaslu, bordering with Tibet. The “Tsumba” people in the valley are the very first and direct Tibetan descendants who have been preserving their prehistoric culture through their extraordinary language and customs all these years.
