Unfold the mysteries of the Tibetan Buddisht land.situated at the edge of one of the most sequestered Himalayan valleys. Tsum Valley Trekking is known as the Beyul Kyimolung, the holy hidden valley of happiness, first described by Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) in the eighth century. Milarepa meditated in the caves of Piren Phu and there are centuries old nunneries. The Tsum Valley trekking takes you into the majestic surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. The people of Tsum Valley or the Tsumbas belong to Tibetan origin with their own ancient form of dialect, art, culture and religion. The Tsum Valley lies on the northern part of Manaslu. The Tsum people have their own way of family life, which may be quite surprising for many outsiders. All the brothers in the family are married to a single girl, what you may call a practice of polyandry.
The Tsum Valley Trekking starts at Arughat, a seven hours drive from Kathmandu. The first half of the trek ascends the Budhi Gandaki Valley on good paths through a mix of dense forest, terraced fields and hill villages. As we leave the main Manaslu Trail for the Tsum valley, astonishingly we get a feeling of literally entering a hidden valley. While on the trekking trail we can observe the trails stewn with artistic chortens and artistic mani walls made out of thousands of stone slabs carved with drawings of deities and inscribed with prayers. The famous Kyimo Lung a pilgrimage circuit in the Trans-Himalayas is a well known place of learning and meditation. We also pass through the alpine forests, glacial rivers, and enjoy the warm hospitality of ethnic people, along with the lower Buri Gandaki regions of Liding, Machhakhola, Jagat and Philim. Due to its aloofness and inaccessibility, this sacred valley and its inhabitants have been overlooked or unknowingly ignored by the mainstream development for centuries and still continue to be the same.
