Tsum Valley Trek is located in the remote region of Nepal. It touches the border with Tibet, which was closed a long time for the foreigners. The trail opened in 2008 for the trekking, so it is a least discovered trail. It is a difficult walk to reach at the Tsum valley and the rocky trail tires you severely. Although the lodge based trekking is possible there, camping trekking is appropriate in a trek to Tsum Valley.

Tsum Valley Trek is also known as the hidden valley trek which is populated by the Tsumbas. Tsombo is the original word for it, which signifies the diverse. It is surrounded by the massif mountain peaks and hills. During the trekking, you can view Mt. Manaslu, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. The trek begins from Soti Khola, the border region of the Gorkha district. It is due to the road expansion, which used to start from the Aarughat Bazaar before. You have an opportunity to explore the various cultures and indigenous valleys. Similarly, the people from upper part of the region are influenced by the traditional Tibetan lifestyles. The trek takes you to Nile/Chulle by crossing the many beautiful villages like Machha khola, Jagat, Lokpa, Chumling. Then it is wonderful to explore the Gumbas (Monasteries) and cultural heritages. In the same way, crossing the suspension bridges in most of the places is the extra highlight of this trekking. Khorlabesi is the last destination of this trekking trail, but all the villages you pass during the trekking period are beautiful. However, the trekking in Nepal in the Manaslu region offers you the wonderful sceneries of the unique landscape, waterfalls, flora and fauna and the wonderful mountains of the local region. Finally, the trek leads you back to Soti Khola and you have a drive till to Kathmandu.
