Tsum Valley Trek

Once part of Tibet, Tsum Valley is one of the best kept secrets in Nepal. Geographically it is surrounded by the Baudha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the North. This area is so unexplored that many religious and archeological relics are still intact at many places in Tsum.

People in Tsum Valley (`Tsumbas') still practise polyandry system and they have unique culture, tradition and a dialect of their own. The name ‘Tsum’ came from the Tibetan word called ‘Tsombo’, which means vivid.

This trek can be done on its own, or combined with the Manaslu Circuit to make a superb 4-week trek.
