Tsum Valley Trek is one of the distinctive trekking destinations with jagged upright routes and is situated at the elevation between 1905 to 5093 m. The Valley holds Buddha Himal, Himal Chuli to the west; Sringi Himal to the north; Ganesh Himal to the south. T-sum Valley is also widely recognized as the ‘Hidden Valley’. The valley incorporates two isolated village development committee Chumchet (Lower Tsum) and Chhekampar (Upper Tsum).

The word ‘Tsum’ has been drawn from a Tibetan word Tsombo meaning vibrant. This trekking will definitely give an occasion to cross all the way through attention-grabbing villages; making way into a restricted region with special permission, and observing the hub of customs and tradition. Likewise, this out of sight valley is surrounded by mountains called, Boudha Himal, Sringi Himal, Himal Chuli, Ganesh Himal etc. You will also travel around the village of Chhekampar which has slate roofs, stone houses, and Milarepa’s cave, the monastery at Rachen Gompa, Mu Gompa, Gumba Lungdang and so forth.

The Tsum Valley trek is also popular since it holds high sacred importance as it includes age-old monasteries, flyers, Mani wheels, and Chorterns. The trekking routes are developing and tea houses are built in the major places thus it is more comfortable and easy to trek in Tsum Valley than earlier.
G.K.Majestic Trek designs Tsum valley trekking which will captivate you with its extraordinary landscape, a diversity of plants, animals, and diverse ways of life of inhabitants as well as wide range of climatic regions in such a tiny area.
