The Tsum Valley Trek is a unique and challenging experience that offers trekkers a chance to explore the hidden wonders of the Himalayas. Settled in the remote corners of the Himalayas, Tsum Valley is a hidden gem in Nepal. The valley is known for its rich cultural heritage, stunning landscapes, and serene environment. It is the perfect destination for trekkers seeking to escape the crowds and immerse themselves in the peace and tranquility of nature.

Tsum Valley is located in the Gorkha district of Nepal and is bordered by the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. The valley is named after the Tibetan word ‘Tsum’, which means vivid. The name is fitting as the valley is famous for its vibrant culture, colorful landscape, and abundant natural beauty. One of the most appealing aspects of the Tsum Valley Trek is its cultural significance. The valley is home to a thriving Tibetan Buddhist community that has maintained its unique customs and traditions for centuries. Trekkers can visit the ancient monasteries, interact with the friendly locals, and learn about their rich cultural heritage.

Another highlight of the Tsum Valley Trek is the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the region. The trek takes trekkers through lush forests, high mountain passes, and rolling hills that are dotted with traditional villages. Trekkers can spot various species of wildlife, including the Himalayan black bear and the Himalayan tahr, as well as a variety of bird species. The Tsum Valley Trek is a moderate to challenging trek that requires a good level of physical fitness and endurance. The trek can be completed in 14 to 16 days and is best done from September to November or from March to May. It is important to be well-prepared for the trek, as the weather can be unpredictable and the terrain can be challenging at times.

Your 15-day Tsum Valley Trek Itinerary will begin with a beautiful journey from Kathmandu to Soti Khola. You will travel through several towns and woodlands full of rhododendrons and pine trees as you follow the Budhi Gandaki River upstream in the north. You will travel to Machha Khola and subsequently Jagat from Soti Khola. You will go from Jagat in the direction of Lokpa, which is the Tsum Valley's entrance. Your Tsum Valley Trekking Route will take you from Lokpa further north to Chumling, the location of three renowned monasteries, including Pango Gumba, Gurwa Gumba, and Mani Dhungyr. Wonderful views of Manaslu (8163m), Himal Chuli (7893m), and Ganesh Himal may also be obtained from this settlement. You will depart Chumling, which is also known as lower Tsum, the next day and travel via Domje village, the biggest in the Tsum valley, to Chhokangparo, which is known as upper Tsum.

Subtropical forests provide a place for high mountain deserts as the routes gradually climb higher. With the help of the Tsum Valley Trek Map, you will head north from Chhokangparo, via the Milarepa Prien Phu Cave, then Phurbe, till you reach the Nile. Your next stop will be Mu Gompa, the northernmost point of the Tsum Valley Trek, which you will reach after spending the night at the Nile. The caves in the Tsum Valley Mountains are thought to have served as a place of meditation for the Buddhist Guru Milarepa. It is time to head back after arriving at Mu Gompa. To go to Rachen Gompa from Phurbe, you will follow a slightly different route. You will begin your journey from Rachen Gompa and proceed south until you reach Domje, where you will turn left to get to Chumling. You will return to Jagat via Lokpa after leaving Chumling. After staying the night in Jagat, you will move on to Lapu Bensi and then Soti Khola, where your Tsum Valley Trek Itinerary will conclude with a local bus ride back to Kathmandu.

    Useful Info

    Tsum Valley Trek Best Time, Season, Months

    The best time to embark on the Tsum Valley Trek is during the following months:

    • September to November (Autumn Season): This is the best time for trekking in Nepal as the weather is clear and sunny, with clear views of the Himalayas.
    • March to May (Spring Season): During these months, the weather is warmer, with blooming flowers and lush vegetation.

    It is important to note that the Tsum Valley is located at a high altitude, so even during the best months, you may still encounter cold temperatures and inclement weather. It is advisable to avoid trekking during the monsoon season (July-August), as the trails can become treacherous and dangerous due to heavy rain and landslides. By trekking during the best months, you can ensure a more enjoyable and safe experience on the Tsum Valley Trek.

    Food or Meal Availability on Tsum Valley Trek

    As 15 Days Tsum Valley Trek will take you to high altitudes, you will need to eat a lot of wholesome meals. We will provide you with plenty of food that's high in nutrients, but as you go higher, your options get more constrained. With height, the cost of food likewise increases. During the walk, we will provide you with 12 lunches, 12 dinners, and 13 breakfasts. Local, Asian, or Western cuisine will be served. The following are a few of the trekking destinations' most popular menu items:

    Accommodation Facility on Tsum Valley Trek

    In Kathmandu, accommodations will be provided at 3-star hotels. All lodging is on a bed-and-breakfast basis with twin occupancy during the hike. On request and for an additional fee, a single room will be provided. At lodges and tea houses throughout the trip, rooms will often be shared and have attached bathrooms in lower elevations, but keep in mind that finding a room with an attached bathroom at a higher elevation may be challenging. Bed and breakfast services comparable to hotels are provided by lodges or teahouses along the Tsum Valley Trek route. The twin beds in each room are normally comfy and come with a foam pad, pillow, and blanket. Bring your own sleeping bag if you want to make sure you have enough warmth at night. It should be noted that lodging quality may not be as excellent at higher elevations compared to lower elevations, with more basic accommodations that just have the necessary.

    Tsum Valley Trek Difficulty Level

    The Tsum Valley Trek is considered to be of moderate to challenging difficulty level. The following factors contribute to the difficulty of the trek:

    • Altitude: The trek takes you to elevations over 3500 meters, so altitude sickness can be a concern.
    • Length of Trek: The trek can last anywhere from 10 to 20 days, depending on your itinerary, and can be physically demanding.
    • Terrain: The trail can be rocky, steep, and uneven, requiring a good level of balance and coordination.
    • Weather: The weather can change quickly in the mountains, and temperatures can drop dramatically at night, even during the best months for trekking.
    • Altitude Gain: The trek involves a significant amount of altitude gain, so proper acclimatization is essential to prevent altitude sickness.

    Despite these challenges, the Tsum Valley Trek is a rewarding and memorable experience for those who are physically fit and have a love for adventure. Hiring a guide and preparing properly can also help ensure a safe and successful trek.

    Requirement of Travel Insurance during Tsum Valley Trek

    Travel insurance is an essential requirement for the Tsum Valley Trek, as it provides coverage for medical expenses, evacuation, and other related costs in case of an emergency. Some of the reasons why travel insurance is important for the Tsum Valley Trek include:

    • The trek takes place in a remote and isolated region, and medical facilities are limited. Travel insurance provides coverage for medical expenses and evacuation if needed.
    • Travel insurance can provide coverage if you need to cancel your trip due to illness, injury, or other unforeseen circumstances.
    • The Tsum Valley is located in a high-risk area for natural disasters such as landslides and avalanches, and travel insurance can provide coverage in case of an evacuation.
    • Travel insurance can provide coverage if your equipment is lost or stolen during the trek.

    It is important to purchase comprehensive travel insurance that covers you for medical expenses, evacuation, and other related costs, and to keep a copy of your policy and contact information with you during the trek. By having travel insurance, you can ensure that you are covered in case of an emergency, and can focus on enjoying the trek without worrying about potential risks.

    Altitude Sickness and Remedies during Tsum Valley Trek

    Altitude sickness is a common concern for those trekking in high-altitude regions such as the Tsum Valley. It occurs due to the decreased amount of oxygen at higher elevations and can cause symptoms such as headache, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue. To prevent altitude sickness during the Tsum Valley Trek, it is important to take the following precautions:

    • Avoid rapid ascents and allow your body to acclimate gradually to the high altitude.
    • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding alcohol and caffeine.
    • Eat a balanced diet high in carbohydrates to provide your body with the energy it needs to adjust to the high altitude.
    • Get plenty of rest and avoid overexertion during the first few days of the trek.
    • Diamox is a prescription medication that can help prevent and treat altitude sickness.
    • Portable oxygen canisters are available for purchase and can help alleviate symptoms of altitude sickness.

    If you do experience symptoms of altitude sickness, it is important to descend to a lower altitude immediately and seek medical attention if necessary. By taking these precautions and remedies, you can reduce the risk of altitude sickness and ensure a safe and enjoyable trek in the Tsum Valley.

    Tsum Valley Trek Packing List, Gears, Equipment

A flawless experience was made possible by the personnel at Green Valley's professionalism and expertise. It was enlightening to fully immerse oneself with Tsum culture and traditions. Tsum Valley is the ideal option if you're looking for a journey that mixes cultural immersion with environmental splendor. I've had a life-altering experience that I will always treasure thanks to Green Valley.
