Tsum Valley Trek is one of the off-track in the precious region located in the northern part of Gorkha district. Tsum Valley is also named as “Beyul Kyimolung”, the sacred region of pleasure. The literal meaning of Tsum is vivid. This entire area is very famous for panoramic beauty and especially Tibetan Buddhist culture.
Journey to this valley offers magnificent views of Ganesh Himal, ranges of Boudha Himal, Sringi Himal at the top of the valley and lusty forest and scenery. Beside these sceneries, the valley is prosperous with its art, tradition, hospitality, and religion.
Tsum is derived from the Tibetan word “Tsombo”, which literally means bright.
Our journey to Tsum valley starts from Arughat and ends at Beshisahar. You reach the Tsum Valley passing the gorgeous pine and rhododendron forests. While preceding the valley you will also unlock a stunning small Tibetan village.
Tsum valley’s trekking trail was recently opened as of 2008. Before that, it was a restricted area. The valley is inspired by Tibetan culture so people here have their own language and tradition. It is also inspired by the Buddhist culture. There is a very beautiful and sacred cave named as Milarepa Piren Phu Cave in Burji village, which is a village situated in Tsum Valley itself.
People here have a belief that a Tibetan Saint named Milarepa meditated in this cave, hence a sacred cave. The meaning of Piren Phu is Pigeon Cave. It is located very distinctly at the foot of the rocked cliff, which is truly amazing. Shear river passes by this village which ultimately mixes up with Budi Gandaki.
Since the valley is located very remotely, most of its parts are still unexplored and untouched. Thus, this region still has so much to give a traveler a unique experience.
