Make your way into the remote Manaslu region where the scenic mountain valley of Tsum valley lies. Explore the mystical lands of Tsum Valley and get bewildering insights about the ancient Tibetan Buddhist culture on your trip to Nepal by joining our Tsum Valley Trek today.
Our 19 days Tsum Valley Trek begins with an enriching sightseeing tour around the iconic UNESCO World Heritage Sites across the Kathmandu city which allows travellers to learn and educate themselves with the historical knowledge of the visited sites. Next, we are to take a scenic drive to Arughat (600m) which can take us approximately 8 hours to reach when driving from Kathmandu. From Arughat, trekkers can get the first taste of walking in the foothills of the Himalayan nation which can be a very mind-boggling experience for the novice travellers. Moving away from Arughat, we now head toward the higher regions of this splendid part of Nepal and pass through several villages before reaching Jagat which is situated at a high elevation of 2,340 meters above sea level. Hereafter we shall tighten our shoelaces and carry our bags for a walk towards Mu Gompa but before that, we need to go through Chisopani, Chumling, Chokhangparo and Nile villages respectively. Every village that we pass through is uniquely located which makes travelling through them even more exotic and adventurous for us. Passing through shimmering huge waterfalls along a densely covered rhododendron forest, we arrive at Mu Gompa (3700m) at the eleventh day of our trek. All in all, Mu Gompa is basically the largest monastery within Tsum Valley and is the highlight of many trips that go inside Tsum Valley. Hence, we are to spend a day to explore the surrounding areas of this magnificent place before continuing our trek further ahead. The following day we shall make a beeline towards Burgi Village (3245m)but before that, we are going to visit the Milarepa Cave. From Milarepa Cave, one can hike up to see the beautiful Poshyop Glacier, Kipu Himal and Churke Himal. Later, we continue with we descend down to Chumling, Philim, Khorlabesi and Sotikhola before ultimately arriving at Arughat. Upon reaching Arughat, we take a drive back to Kathmandu and conclude our trek.
