Introduction

Tsum Valley is a sacred Buddhist valley in Manaslu region. The valley is also known as the hidden valley of the Himalayas. Tsum Valley Trek will lead you to those hidden valleys at the edge of Manaslu Circuit Trek. It is more like an exploration of religious sites of Tibetan-influenced villages of northern Gorkha district. Tsum Valley Trek takes you to the sacred ancient Buddhist monasteries and remote villages and passes through geographically stunning and culturally fascinating remote areas of the Himalaya. For centuries, people in Tsum valley are dependent on traditional subsistence agriculture system and trading with Tibet. The valley was opened to foreigners only after 2008 hence tourism is pretty new in this region. Tsum Valley Trek is a cultural route to virgin valleys of Himalaya.

A trekker with some previous experience is expected for the best experience. The trek is an adventurous trekking route which is suitable for experienced trekkers only.

Meals

Since the trek is a newly developed route, only basic meals are available. In most places, the meals are prepared by local people using the locally available ingredients. The meals will be basic in standard comparing to other popular routes in Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang. We recommended our valuable guests to keep their expectations in low to avoid disappointments on the trek.

Local lodges and homestay facilities are available along the trek. The lodges are basic in standard but will give cozy experiences to the trekkers. Generally, there will be no facilities available inside the rooms. A small room with a small bed will be provided on the whole journey.

Best Season

March - May, and September - December is considered as the best time to do the Tsum Valley Trek. Even though the trek can be done almost throughout the year, monsoon season (June - August) and winter (January - February) is not recommended. The views are generally great throughout the year.
