Tsum Valley Trek offers a great chance for trek lovers who are looking to take couple of weeks break from daily monotonous life and schedule. Tsum Valley Trek is opened for outsider in 2008 and can operate both camping and Lodge Trek. Lodge  (home stay) in Tsum valley are basic. However, visiting the area is rewarding, colorful monasteries and ancient villages with insightful local cultures. We begin our Tsum Valley Trek with drive to Soti Khola. During our initial days of Tsum Valley Trek, we trace our steps all the way up towards Budhi Gandaki valley experiencing beautiful forest walk, enjoying scenic landscape views through culturally rich villages and finally set into hidden valley of Tsum. This place is very popular for excellent views of snowcapped mountains including Manaslu and Ganesh Himal. We also get great perceptive cultural exploring opportunities while visiting various ancient monasteries.

We make our way through highest point of our trek at Mu Gompa and then descend towards Rachen Gompa, Chumling, Philim, Khorla Besi and Soti Khola all the same way back before driving back to Kathmandu. Best season for Tsum Valley Trek is Spring March to May and Autumn September to November.
