For many years Tsum valley has also been remote. It has been available to foreign travelers since 2008. The local population has, therefore, authentically maintained its Buddhist culture, religion, and architecture. The Tsum Valley Trekking provides exquisite Himalayan views, such as Ganesh, Siringi, and Buddha Himal ranges. Tsum comes from the word Tsombo; the meaning is colorful. Besides that, decorated with prayer flags, Tsortens, and mani walls, make this Trek worthwhile. The entire circuit is due to the stunning views seen throughout the route. This trail is challenging, with less traffic that remains untouched by modernization and urbanization. It is the Tsum valley rather than an open-air pilgrimage trek.
In earlier times, the Tsum Valley Trek was a contemplation and regeneration site. This region’s history is evident through the thousands of stone carvings of ancient inscriptions. It can see all the way; besides, in the Tsum Valley, wildlife like the Himalayan Thar and blue sheep are abundantly visible among all the others. For those who wish to observe these locals’ unique cultures and traditions, Tsum Valley Trek is highly recommendable. Likewise, if you prefer to do both Tsum Valley with Manaslu Circuit Trek, it takes at least 3-weeks for a whole circuit.

Arughat Bazaar is the beginning of a Tsum Valley Trekking as it passes the charming villages to Mu Gompa. The trail continues along the Manaslu trek while the route separates from Ekle Bhatti. Then it goes to Lokpa, climbs Mu Gompa, and passes through the small villages. These valleys are followed with knowledge of the region’s unusual landscape and Buddhist influences. A side trip to the Ganesh Himal Base camp rewards spectacular views, while you can see the Ganesh Himal scenery and other sister peaks. In fact, on the way to Manaslu Circuit Trek, the Trek will expand until you reach two valleys in a single excursion. Acclimatization is, therefore, necessary to carry out the Trek, and a good physique is mandatory.
