Tsum Valley Trekking is a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley situated in a trans-Himalayan region of Gorkha, Nepal. The Tsum Valley's acquaintance with Tibet, natural beauty, and its pristine culture make this trekking unique. Tsum comes from the Tibetan word 'Tsombo', which means vivid. Against the majestic backdrop of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal and Baudha Himal ranges, this serene Himalayan valley is rich in ancient art, culture, and religion. The local people are mostly of Tibetan origin and seek a unique dialect. Trails are strewn with artistic chortens and lined with mani walls made of thousands of stone slabs carved with deities and prayers. The Tsum valley trekking has a long history of Buddhism. The Buddhist saint Milarepa is believed to have meditated in the caves of there mountains. Traditionally Tsum valley was a culturally distinct geographical area called 'Tsum Tso Chuksum', which means thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory. The ancient remains of the Tsum Kingdom are still visible today. Due to its remoteness and inaccessibility, this sacred valley and its people have been bypassed by mainstream development for centuries. As a result, the unique culture of this valley has remained intact.

Tsum Valley trek ascends follow Buri Gandaki River. Tsum valley trek (part of the Inner Himalaya) is hospitable local people (Tibetan group "Tsombo") welcome you with traditional Tibetan Chiya (butter tea) and local meal. The Tsum Valley is extremely rich in cultural assets. The valley is dotted with gompas (Buddhist monasteries), Chortens and mani walls. The longest mani walls (over 250m) are at Dzong and Phurpe. The valley preserves steps of the great Buddhist Yogi Chyuchin Milarepa and story about Guru Padmasambhava Circumbulation. The people here never slaughter animals, even as a sacrifice to the gods. Tsum Valley Trekking is surrounded by the Buddha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the North.

    Tsum Valley Trek

    Rating: March 31,2019

    Effettuato questo trek nella seconda metà di marzo con temperature buone a parte la notte nelle zone più alte. Il gruppo era composto da 6 persone con Niru come guida, Ram assistente guida e tre portatori. I servizi dell'agenzia e delle guide sono stati ottimi, persone competenti e piene di attenzioni alle necessità del gruppo. Tra cui le salviette calde per la pulizia delle mani prima della cena, il gel antibatterico, la frutta dopo cena e il formaggio come antipasto. Si sono sempre prodigati per il servizio delle pietanze e non di rado anche nella preparazione in cucina. Quindi tra tutti noi si è creato un buon affiatamento che ha contribuito alla buona riuscita del trek. La prima parte del percorso si svolge su una strada in costruzione (in comune con il Manaslu Circuit), meno interessante rispetto a quando si entra nella Tsum Valley vera e propria. Poi il panorama si apre su ampi pascoli, villaggi e montagne innevate, con la possibilità di raggiungere alcuni Gompa.
