Tsum Valley Trekking



This area of Tsum Valley is said to be a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley situated in northern Gorkha district of Nepal. Tsum comes from the Tibetan word "Tsombo" which means glowing. The trail heads up the valley of the Budi Gandaki River through wild and uncharted country occupied mainly by members of the Gurung ethnic groups. Good cup of the local cultivated natural coffee and Tatopani hot springs will be a good way to relax on this rigorous trial.

Upper Tsum valleys (part of the Inner Himalaya) open from Chhokangparo, where friendly local people (Tibetan group "Tsombo") welcome you with traditional Tibetan Chiya (butter tea) and local meal. The Tsum Valley is very rich in cultural resources. The valley is dotted with gompas (Buddhist monasteries), chortens and Mani walls. The longest Mani walls (over 250m) are at Dzong and Phurpe. The valley conserves steps of the great Buddhist Yogi Chyuchin Milarepa and story about Guru Padmasambhava circumbulation. The people here never butcher animals, even as sacrifice to the gods. The Tsum Valley is surrounded by the Buddha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the North.
