Manaslu & Tsum Valley Trek - 22 Days

(Tsum Valley is a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley situated in a trans-Himalayan region of Gorkha, Nepal)


The Tsum Valley trek offers a unique  experience as it acquaintances with Tibetan Plateau, natural beauty and its pristine culture. The word ‘Tsum’ comes from the Tibetan word ‘Tsombo’, which means vivid. Against the majestic backdrop of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal and Baudha Himal ranges, this serene Himalayan valley is rich in ancient art, culture, and religion. Tsum Valley takes you into the majestic surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. The Local People are mostly of Tibetan origin and seek a unique dialect. Trails are strewn with artistic Chortens, Monasteries and lined with Mane Walls made of thousands of stone slabs carved with deities and prayers.
The Tsum valley has a long history of Buddhism. The Buddhist saint Milarepa is believed to have meditated in the caves of mountains there. Traditionally, Tsum valley was a culturally distinct geographical area called ‘Tsum Tso Chuksum’, which means thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory. The ancient remains of the Tsum Kingdom are still visible today. Due to its remoteness and inaccessibility, this sacred valley and its people have been bypassed by mainstream development for centuries. The lifestyle of the people in this region is a unique rural life which is different from people in other parts. As a result, the unique culture of this valley has remained intact.
