Tsum Valley Trek allows you to visit the Tibetan Buddhist land located at the verge of remote Himalayan valleys. Tsum Valley is measured as one of the furthest Himalayan Valleys and was a constrained county until recently. It takes you to places like Ganesh Himal, Boudha Himal, Sringi Himal and many more.

The people from Tsum Valley adapt to the Tibetan groundwork with their own culture, art and religion. Not many have tried this trek and very few of them have made it to its uppermost point because of its rough ways. We hike to Manaslu at initial phase of the trek and move to other places starting from Aarughat. The first part of our tour rises up the Budhi Gandaki Valley through dense forests and villages. On our way, we pass via alpine forests, glacial rivers, and et-cetera. Also, en-route, we hike through villages, streams, waterfalls, green valley, forest and many more; until you reach the place called Lapu Beshi, which is mostly occupied by Mongolian. Later, we pass through lower Buri Gandaki regions of Liding, Philim, Jagat and Machhakhola. Not just it, we also get to wander around famous Gombas like Gomba Lungden, where monasteries are occupied by mostly female monks: Mu Gomba, situated at the highest point in Tsum valley; Ranchen Gomba, situated at the highest point in Tsum valley that is at the height of 3388m and several more.

The best months to visit this astonishing place are March to May and September to November. Tsum Valley Trekking is one of the most problematic treks in the entire world and you will need a dependable director to lead you through sketchy ways over there so we would be more than happy to be your attendant and we can make sure that it is going to be one of the best times of your life.
