    Checklist for Tsum Valley Trek

    Preparation is essential when you book the 15-day trek to Tsum Valley. For easy and comfortable travel, do get prepared as early as you can. Some of the equipment can hire when you arrive here in Nepal. So, keep in mind that you don’t have to buy all the equipment, which is very expensive and not usable after the Everest base camp trek.

    Basically, you need a comfortably fitted day backpack since you are carrying it every day for 5 to 6 hours. Make sure your backpack is waterproof, or it has a special cover. Check the trekking equipment list and pick up all the essential needs for yourself. And if you need to discuss more the equipment, please feel free to ask us.

    How to Prepare Yourself for The Tsum Valley Trek?

    During the trek to Tsum Valley, you will have to walk on up and down an uneven trail with your 5-6 kilos load day backpack. So, start building yourself to make your trip to the mountains easier. A month before the trip starting date, plan for 4-5 days of training a week. The more you exercise and hike with some load your legs and muscles get stronger.

    At the same time, mental preparation is a very important part of the trip plan. And prepare yourself for basic conditions and rapidly changing weather.

    Drinking Water

    Drinking enough purified water and keeping your body dihydride is very important while you are on the route to the Tusm valley trek. During the trek, one should drink 3-4 liters of water every day. We highly recommend carrying a reusable water bottle with you. You can fill the water bottle in lodges and can use an inbuilt filtration system like Life Straw or Steripen. You can also use water purification tablets to treat the water.
