Tsum Valley trek information
Tsum Valley 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 work ‘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 trek has a long history of Buddhism. The Buddhist saint Milarepa is believed to have meditated in the caves of their mountains.
Traditionally Tsum valley was a culturally distinct geographical area called ‘Tsum Tso Chuksum’, which means thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory. Tsum valley is beautiful yet untouched by any trekkers. Mountains, Culture and Tradition, Landscape and adventure is what specify this trekking area. Crossing through beautiful villages, entering into restricted area with special permit takes you to the heart of cultural and traditional hub, where you will see the real and true image of ancient habitat is untouched by outer world.
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. People in Tsum Valley still practice polyandry system and they have their own unique culture, tradition and dialect. They celebrate unique festival like Lhosar, Dhacyhang, Saka Dawa, Faning and others. This trek begins from Arughat in Gorkha district,which is easily accessible from Kathmandu.
