Tsum Valley Trek is an exhilarating trek to the remotest Himalayan Valleys of Nepal: restricted area until recently. Tsum Valley was opened for trekking in 2008, and since then this sacred Himalayan Valley has allured thousands of internal and international tourists. This enchanted valley is located in northern Gorkha, Nepal, and shares ancient villages, Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, and lifestyle and traditions influenced by Tibetan culture. The trail to Tsum Valley leads to majestic mountains and stunning landscapes where the hospitality of local people awaits you. The picturesque Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, Bouddha Himal, and Himalchuli are breath-taking. Buddhist monasteries, nunneries,  artistic chortens, and prayer walls are the significant attractions of Tsum Valley. The relatively less beaten path offers you an astounding vista of mountains, enticing culture, and diverse wilderness.

Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions Tsum valley trek is based on accommodation in small local teahouses and private homes. The secluded valley remains untouched with modern comfort, but we can guarantee hospitality, warm-hearted and a high degree of authenticity!
