The land of myth, mystery and magnificent beauty, Tsum Valley Trekking is the country’s Holy Grail that only passionate wanderers discover. 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. The ancient monasteries and villages had been untouched for years until the hidden trails were finally opened for trekkers in 2008. The locals in the valley practice a remarkable ancient form of art, culture, dialect and are popular for their utmost hospitality. The historic value of the Tsum Valley is immense as it was home to the legendary yetis.

We walk across the lower Budhi Gandaki Region including Philim, Machha Khola, and Jagat. While trekking, picturesque sceneries, and majestic Himalayan peaks move alongside us which makes the trekking more thrilling.
