    Tsum Valley trek - 15 days

    Tsum Valley trek 15 days Cost / Price: $1199.00 per person | Minimum Group Size: 02

    Tsum Valley Trek is alluring because it provides them with an opportunity to witness the geographically astounding and culturally enriched regions in Manaslu, Nepal. The fascinating art, the remarkable hospitality of the Buddhist locals, their culture and traditions are something worth experiencing. Tsum Valley Trek is a recently opened trekking trail that takes us to the remote villages of the region through rough trails, land that belongs to the “Tsumbas” people of Tibetan ancestry.

    Tsum Valley Trek gives you an opportunity to witness the culturally diverse areas along with the beautiful landscapes including the peaks of Siring Himal, Ganesh Himal, Boudha Himal, and Cheo Peaks. Most of the trails here are untouched and not many tourists are aware of this trip which makes it even more exclusive and fascinating. The remote Tsum Valley is named after a Tibetan word “Tsumbo” which means vivid and we can only agree. Tsum Valley consists of its own distinct features that treasure lush vegetation, clear streams, natural hot springs, splashing waterfalls and much more. The valley lies between Baudha Himal, Chuli to the west, Sring Himal to the north and Ganesh Himal to the south.

    The trekkers are amazed by its ancient arts, religions, costumes, handicrafts and the warm hospitality from the ethnic groups. Mu Gompa, Rachen Gompa, and Milarepa Cave are some of the most highlighted spots of this trek. The area has various untouched wildlife because the Buddhists living here prohibit any external intrusion especially hunting. The region is well maintained and conserved by the local people, allowing only organized trekking groups special permits to gain entry.

    Join us in these 13 days of a trek and see the world from a different perspective. Malung Treks and Expedition is more than happy to share this privilege with you.

      Another wonderfull journey

      I travelled four times with Malung treks: Everest base camp + Gokyo, Annapurna, Jiri to Everest base camp and Tsum Valley + Manaslu. The plans for a fifth time are in the making. All is very well organized, professional and with good english speaking guides. If circumstances ask for improvisation (due to weatherconditions or something like that) new plans are made together and I've never been disappointed. Also: no helicopterscam, friendly people and a lot of effort is made to provide a beautiful journey in good companionship. Nepal is a wonderful country, but me going for a fifth time is also because organizing it is made easy and comfortable by Malung Treks.

    Another wonderfull journey

    I travelled four times with Malung treks: Everest base camp + Gokyo, Annapurna, Jiri to Everest base camp and Tsum Valley + Manaslu. The plans for a fifth time are in the making. All is very well organized, professional and with good english speaking guides. If circumstances ask for improvisation (due to weatherconditions or something like that) new plans are made together and I've never been disappointed. Also: no helicopterscam, friendly people and a lot of effort is made to provide a beautiful journey in good companionship. Nepal is a wonderful country, but me going for a fifth time is also because organizing it is made easy and comfortable by Malung Treks.
