Overview

Tsum Valley, located in northern Gorkha, is a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley. Ancient art, culture, and religion abound. The locals are Tibetans who speak a dialect of their own. The untouched beauty of one of the most isolated Himalayan valleys adds to the enjoyment and pleasure of the trek. The landscapes and mountains such as Ganesh Himal, Shringi Himal, and Boudha Himal are all visible from the valley. Because access was prohibited until 2008, the Tsum valley does not have the same level of publicity as other trekking sites. Many holy monasteries, such as Rachen Gompa and Mu Gompa, are located in the valley since it is rich in Buddhist culture. Not only is the culture wonderful, but the biodiversity is as well, with numerous woods, rivers, caverns, and other natural wonders.

The trek begins with a picturesque drive to Arughat, which is followed by a trip to Soti Khola. We'll ascend the Budhi Gandaki valley upstream, passing through a variety of green terrains and numerous communities. We'll pass through rhododendron and pine forests on our journey. We will continue our trip from Jagat to Lokpa, where the trail will take us to Tsum valley, which is home to Tibetans. Many prayer flags and mani walls will be visible along the road, indicating Buddhist culture. Along the way, we'll see glacial rivers, stunning waterfalls and the natural splendor of the valley. On the route, we'll stop by the Piren Phu cave, which is one of the valley's most revered caverns. We may spot native wildlife along the journey, such as Himalayan Thar or blue sheep. 

We will stop at monasteries along the trip, such as the Mu Gompa and the Rachen Gompa. We will arrive in Gumba Lungdang after over multiple suspension bridges, where we will spend the night before trekking to the Ganesh Himal base camp. This thrilling journey to the camp is truly worthwhile. Then it's back on the trail to Lokpa and then down to Jagat. The next day, we will drive back to Kathmandu through Arughat Bazaar after passing over several bridges and villages. The Tsum Valley Trip is an adventure journey that takes you off the main path to learn about Tibetan culture, see natural beauty and have a nice trek.

Tsum Valley provides trekkers who are captivated by Tibetan culture as well as mountains. It provides the chance to see Tibetan Buddhist people in their villages, monks and nuns in their various religious orders, and stunning Himalayan views in an almost pilgrimage-like trek into this hidden valley.
