More Info

Tsum Valley is plain land between Mount Manaslu and Ganesh Himal. The narrow and small valley, spread between 2000m – 3700m has limited villages for accommodation. The government of Nepal has allowed trekking in Tsum Valley since 2008. It is a restricted area and requires a restricted area permit for trekking. There was an open border between Tibet and Tsum Valley before the Pandamic COVID 19. The local people used to get their goods easily from Tibet, but the inflow of citizens between Tibet and Tsum Valley, Nepal, was almost closed after the pandemic. The valley is bound by Buddhism, which protects nature and its entities with its strict rules. Killing animals and firing is strictly prohibited to protect nature. One should pay RS 50,000 in fines if he/she knowingly sets fire to the forest of Tsum Valley. The wheat is the annual crop, and the rotation of cropping occurs after three years. Farmers sow buckwheat and mustard, replacing wheat in each three-year gap. There is a unique system for harvesting buckwheat during the night. The trekking route conveys the bank of Budigandaki and its tributaries, mountains and villages, farmland, Kati Gate, suspension bridges, and wooden bridges connecting the banks of the river. We can visualize Ghoral and Jharal on the difficult mountainscape. 


Tsum Valley is a tea house trek. Therefore, we can get suitable rooms for spending the night. Do not expect luxurious accommodation because it is a remote valley with few settlements. We can get local food and normal rooms during the night.
