The Tsum Valley is a Holy Himalayan pilgrimage valley situated in the northern Gorkha district of Nepal. Tsum comes from the Tibetan word "Tsombo" which means stunning. The trail heads up the valley of the Budi Gandaki River through wild and unexplored country populated mainly by members of the Gurung ethnic groups. A good cup of the locally cultivated natural coffee and Tatopani hot springs will help you to relax on this intensive trial.
Upper Tsum valley Trekking (part of the Inner Himalayan) open from Chhokangparo, where hospitable local people (Tibetan group "Tsombo") welcome you with traditional Tibetan Chiya (butter tea) and local meal. The Tsum Valley is extremely rich in cultural assets. The valley is dotted with gompas (Buddhist monasteries), chortens, and mani walls. The longest mani walls (over 250m) are at Dzong and Purple. The valley preserves the steps of the great Buddhist Yogi Chyuchin Milarepa and the story about Guru Padmasambhava circulation. People here never kill any animals even as a sacrifice to the gods. The Tsum Valley is enclosed by the Buddha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the North.
