The Tsum valley trekking is ideal for those who want to explore the remote and less trodden hidden valley on fully camping trekking in Nepal also recognized as the Hidden Valley and Innumerable monasteries and hamlets with completely Tibetan residents situated on the northern part of Manaslu on the Nepal, Tibet border and used to be a Nepal Government control area until 2008.

The Tsum valley trek in Nepal charms the trekkers with its rich cultural aspects on the backdrop of the tranquil Himalayan panorama of Ganesh, Sringi, and Buddha Himal along with the rapids of Budhi Gandaki River, Machha Khola, and Soti Khola is an amazing experience. This Tsum valley trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Aarughat heading up the valley of the Budi Gandaki River through terraced fields, dense forest, and countryside hidden villages.

The valley is dotted with ornate Buddhist monasteries, artistic Chortens and Mani walls made of thousands of stone slabs hand carved of deities and prayers on it. The prayer flags, chortens, Mani walls; everything we encounter on our trail during our journey gives a resemblance of Tibetan Buddhist culture. Visit Mu Gompa, Rachen Gompa and Nunnery temple to get some insights about Tibetan Buddhist culture.

The people of Tsum valley are of Tibetan origin with their own ancient form of tongue, art, culture, and religion; they still practice polyandry system marrying a girl between all the brothers in a family. They have their own way of family life, which may be quite surprising for many outsiders. The people in the region have been able to preserve their uniqueness intact without any impact of the outer world to date.
