Tsum Valley Trek lies in combination with the Manaslu Circuit Trek in the northern region of Gorkha, Nepal. For many years Tsum valley has also been a remote mountain area. Since 2008, it has been available to foreign travelers. The local population has, therefore, authentically maintained its Buddhist culture religion and architecture. The Tsum valley trekking provides exquisite Himalayan views, such as the ranges of Ganesh, Siringi, and Buddha Himal. Tsum comes from the word Tsombo, meaning colorful. Besides that, decorated with flags of prayer, chortens and mani walls make this trek worthwhile. The entire walk is due to the stunning views that can see throughout the route. This trail is challenging, with less traffic that remains untouched by the realms of modernization and urbanization. It is the Tsum valley, rather than an open-air pilgrimage trek.
Tsum valley trekking route
Arughat Bazaar is the beginning of a Tsum Valley trek 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 following with knowledge of the region’s unusual landscape and Buddhist influences. A side trip to 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.
In the 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 people who wish to observe the unique cultures and traditions of these locals, Tsum Valley Trekking is highly recommendable.
