Tsum Valley is known as the Valley of Happiness in local language which is close distance to the border of Tibet.
On this Tsum Valley trekking, we can see awesome peaks Mt. Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, exploring ancient culture of Bon and Buddhist culture within pristine environment .
The area around Tsum been opened for trekkers just 2 decades ago, and less frequented by travelers due to its remoteness and still a virgin and pristine country unspoiled and untouched by modernization, where you can explore its ancient cultures. The people of Tsum are closely related to Tibetan culture-religion as it is close to the Tibet, just a mere distance from Mu Gompa (monastery)
Tsum Valley trekking begins with a long interesting drive towards warmer region of Gorkha district at Arughat, to start this wonderful trekking walking on the main Manaslu route for few days and then away from mainstream trail heading to the hidden areas of Tsum Valley on the northern side of massive Ganesh Himal range of mountains. Around Tsum exploring its old medieval like villages enriched with Buddhist and ancient Bon culture including visit of interesting Mu Gompa and Rachen Gompa, one of the highlight of this trek. After an amazing time around remote and isolated Tsum Valley in perfect wilderness, our return journey leads downhill following Burigandaki River all the way to lower areas of Gorkha district for the drive back to Kathmandu.
