Tsum Valley Trek

TRIP OVERVIEW

Tsum Valley is a Himalayan pilgrimage valley that lies in the North of Gorkha District. The snow-capped Ganesh Himal, Buddha, Himal Chuli and Sringi Himal surround the Tsum valley. The name Tsum was derived from a Tibetan word ‘Tsombo’. Tsombo means vivid in Tibetan language. Until 2008, Tsum valley was a restricted area. The valley was opened in 2008 for trekking. The residents of Tsum valley are named Tsumbas. The Tsumbas are from Tibetan origin and have much faith in Buddhism. A Buddhist saint Milarewa is believed to have meditated in a cave of Tsum valley in the 11th century. The cave is now called Milarewa Cave. So, the valley is itself believed to be a scared one with long Buddhist history. Chumchet and Chhekampar are the two villages of the Tsum valley. Chhekampar is the upper part of Tsum valley whereas Chumchet is the lower part of Tsum valley. Even today, we can clearly see that the valley is much detached from rest of the country and is compelled to maintain distance from any kind of development. Go For Nepal will assist you in the 21days trek to Tsum valley.
