 Tsum Valley Trekking

Tsum valley is newly opened trekking route in northen Gorkha of Nepal. Alternatively called the "hidden valley", Tsum valley is located nearby Nepal China boarder. The remote Tsum valley is nestled between Baudha Himal and Hima Chuli to the wes.  The south and Sringi Himal to the north. Because of its distant location and inadequate information and promotion, the trekking route to this region was only opened in October, 2007.

"Tsum Valley’ which is derived from the Tibetan word ’Tsombo’ means vivid. True to its meaning, the Tsum valley continues to guard its distinct and natural treasures of clear streams, teeming vegetation, towering mountains, cascading waterfalls, unspoiled hot springs and ancient relics. One of most interesting features of this Tsum Valley trek is the people with their unique culture and age-old lifestyles that they still follow. Tsum valley trekking offers the unique and wilderness culture, landscape and beautiful mountain views. Spring and autumn are the best season to trek in this area and it is the wise selection for holidays in the wildness area of the Himalayas.
