Tsum Valley Trek Overview
Tsum Valley Trek is one of the best off-track locations in the northern part of the Gorkha district. The valley is also named "Beyul Kyimolung", the sacred region of pleasure. The literal meaning of Tsum is bright and derived from the Tibetan word “Tsombo”.
Tsum valley trek offers magnificent views of ranges of the Boudha Himal, Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal at the top of the valley, and lusty green dense forest and beautiful scenery. Besides these sceneries, the valley is prosperous with its art, tradition, hospitality, and religion. This entire region is famous for its panoramic beauty and especially Tibetan Buddhist culture.
Our journey to Tsum valley starts from Arughat and ends at Beshisahar. You reach the Tsum Valley passing the gorgeous pine and rhododendron forests and rivers. While preceding the valley you will also unlock a stunning small Tibetan village.
Since the valley is heavily inspired by Tibetan Buddhist culture, locals here have their own spoken language and tradition. One of the attractions of this place is a beautiful and sacred cave named Milarepa Piren Phu Cave (Pigeon Cave) in Burji village. It is located very distinctly at the foot of the rocked cliff, which is truly amazing.
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.
