The Tsum Valley is truly one of the hidden gems of trekking in Nepal. This trek incorporates a five day detour off the Manaslu circuit to experience the wonders of this hidden valley. The Tsum Valley culture is primarily Buddhist Tibetans and the trails are decorated with chortens and mani walls. The local people speak their own dialect and their unique culture has remaining intact due to the remoteness of the valley. Majestic views of Sringi Himal and the surrounding mountains, dense lush forests, glacial rivers and most memorable, the hospitality of the Tsum people, make this trek a truly unique experience.
Good To Know
Asian Trekking is a Nepali expedition operating company established 36 years ago. According to Paragraph 26 of the Tourism Act (2035), no foreign expedition teams or companies are allowed to provide expedition services in Nepal directly and any foreign company must work through a Nepali company licensed by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Government of Nepal. As such, Nepali companies are the ones that provide all the legal, administrative, logistical, guiding and support services in Nepal, while also being legally responsible for the safe and responsible conduct of the expeditions. Booking through foreign expedition companies naturally makes the cost to the customer higher due to the extra layer of administration and profit margins, without necessarily adding any extra value.
