Tsum Valley Trek Information:

Tsum comes from the Tibetan word “Tsombo’, which means vivid traditionally Tsum valley was a culturally distinct geographical area called ‘Tsum Tso Checksums’, which means 13 provinces ruled as a single territory. The valley was recently opened for foreigners. Situated at an altitude arise from a 1905m at Lokpa to over 5093m at Ngula Dhojhyang on the Tibetan border, the valley occupies an area of about 1663sq. km.  Tibetan-style villages.

The remote Tsum Valley is one of the hidden gems of Nepal. Tsum Valley is known as the Beyul Kyimolung, the holy hidden valley of happiness first described by Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) in the eighth century. Milarepa meditated in the caves of Piren Phu and there are centuries old nunneries.

The Tibetan Buddhist culture is still very prevalent in Tsum and the scenery is stunning with beautiful forests and countryside overshadowed by the towering Ganesh Himal. Tsum comes from the Tibetan word ‘Tsombo’, which means vivid and after visiting Tsum, you will understand how the valley got this name.

Many people combine the Tsum Valley with the Manaslu Circuit starting in Arughat Bazaar and ending in Besisahar. Besisahar is also the starting point for the Annapurna circuit.
