Trip Overview

The Tsum Valley, situated near the Tibetan border in the Manaslu region, is one of the most secluded valleys in Nepal. When the Tibetans fled the Chinese invasion they settled in the first place the came to that they felt would provide a sustainable existence, many of the old Tibetan Buddhist cultures and traditions still survive today. The trail passes through pine forests, and alongside, waterfalls and over incredible suspension bridges. There are fascinating villages, gompas, monasteries, mani
walls, and stupas, not to mention Milarepa’s Cave that are worth spending time to look at, as if that were not enough there are also the nearby peaks of Himalchuli 7893m, Ganesh Himal 7140m, Manaslu 8163m, Churke Himal and the Poshyop Glacier.

For trekkers who are fascinated by Tibetan culture as well as the mountains, Tsum Valley offers every opportunity to observe people in theircultural settings, villages, monks and nuns in their respective religious orders and the spectacular views of the Himalaya.
