    Trip Overview

    Trip Highlights

    • Isolated trail
    • Tibetan Buddhist culture and lifestyle
    • Colorful monasteries such as Mu Gompa
    • Polyandry culture
    • Unique landscape

    Tsum Valley Trek is a unique and exclusive beautiful journey in the core Buddhist pilgrimage destination. If you want to enjoy your trekking in a less-trafficked region and incredible excitement, this is the perfect package for you. The trekking trail to Tsum Valley lies in the northwest part of Nepal, which is dominated by Tibetan Buddhists who still follow traditional lifestyles.

    Tsum Valley trekking begins from Soti Khola, which is about 9 hour's drive from Kathmandu. The beginning trail in the Tsum Valley is the same trail of Manaslu and it diverts towards the Tsum Valley region, where Saint Milarepa had meditated several hundred years ago. Mu Gompa is one of the most famous monasteries in this valley. Trek to Tsum Valley is distinct from other trekking in Nepal. It is quiet and the landscape is similar to the Tibetan plateau. As it is populated by Tibetan Buddhists, the trail is loaded with antique and wonderful Buddhist cultural heritages, including colorful monasteries, glittering chhortens, and stone arts. The trail is pretty much challenging in that you have to walk through the jaw-dropping rocky landscape. During the trek, trekkers can enjoy the natural hot spring at Tatopani village. Regarding the natural scenery, you can explore the Ganesh Himal, Buddha Himal, Pama Himal, Ngadi Chuli, and others. Nepal Kameleon Holidays expertly manages your trek with excellent trip services.

    Trek through the isolated and nomadic land of the Tibetan Buddhists of Tsum Valley. You will find it more fabulous than expected. Please, feel free to contact Nepal Kameleon Holidays for more details.
