Tsum Valley is an unexplored hidden gem where killing or consumption of animals and any other living creatures is strictly prohibited. This sacred pilgrimage is believed to be blessed by the second Buddha or Padmasambhava and carries huge Buddhist significance. So, trekking to such a pilgrimage is no less walking on the path of peace and salvation. Tsum Valley Trek is an exhilarating journey towards the Himalayan Valley, which has been far away from modern civilization. Tsumbas, the people inhabiting this region, still look forward to and follow the old culture and traditions passed on to them by their ancestors. They have believed in preserving their culture for generations, which signifies their simplicity and loyalty.

The beautiful Tsum Valley is surrounded by Ganesh Himal in the South, Boudha and Himal Chuli in the west, and Siring Himal in the north. Combining the Chumling( lower Tsum) and Chhaikampar ( upper Tsum), this valley is home to some of the biggest monasteries and gompas like Mu Gompa, Ranchen Gompa and many more. Opened for trekking in 2008, Tsum Valley Trek is garnering the attention of trekkers worldwide in mini Tibet due to heavy Tibetan influence in the region.

We will embark on this off-the-beaten journey on a scenic ride to Machha Khola. Following the natural direction of the Budhi Gandaki River, we will make our way through forested trails before passing settlement areas like Jagat. With high spirits, we will head towards Lokpa and move further deep into the valley after reaching Chumling. The scenic view of a wide valley dotted with barley and buckwheat patches will be ecstatic.

Moreover, the fluttering prayer flags around the gompas and monasteries amidst the giant white mountains are truly a visual delight. Highlighting our trek with Mu Gompa, the visit to this ancient monastery will cleanse the soul and give calmness to our hearts. Interaction with monks and nuns will help to understand the essence of this place and some life lessons.

So, are you ready to navigate unbeaten trails, discover the significance of unexplored Gompas, and listen to unheard stories? If yes, then what could be better than the Tsum Valley Trek? No, there is something better, i.e., to be accompanied by us, Green Society Adventures. We will provide you with guidance and expertise to make your journey more convenient and easy.

Tsum Valley Trek can also be combined with the Manaslu Circuit Trek for an extensive experience of the west-central Himalayas. Trekkers who have enough time on hand prefer this duo-itinerary option for an immersive experience.

During monsoon, the heavy rainfall rejuvenates the region as rivulets and waterfalls suddenly become voluminous. The dense forest and wetland vegetation also strive during this time of the year to give you a different perspective of the valley.

Similarly, the whole region will be covered with snow during winter, creating a winter wonderland. You can be awestruck after being surrounded by the snow-glistening mountains. However, adequate preparation is a must when it comes to off-season trekking.
