The Tsum Valley trek is fast growing as one of the most exciting and popular trekking destinations because of its isolation and remoteness. It is gradually gaining a name as the most thrilling trekking and mountain adventure in the entire world.
The Manaslu region offers the best experience of venturing into the land. In these remote and cut-off areas, you get similar episodes of getting romanticized with additional knowledge and insight into a different world beyond the existing one. The Tsum valley, in the Manaslu region and on the northern side of Gorkha, is one of the remotest Himalayan valleys in the world. Trekking in the valley has been open to outsiders only in very recent years. So, it attracts hundreds of tourists every month during the season.
Tsum Valley is popular for its enchanting beauty that has been untouched by modernization for such a long time, its pilgrimage sites that sacredly reflect the cultural and religious wealth. The distinct culture and significant religious heritage that mirrors Tibetan essence are the major highlights, along with the pure natural beauty. Similarly, it is famous for sacred mountain caves where several Buddhist monks meditate at different times. Some Tibetan ethnic Buddhist followers visit this valley as a pilgrimage site. This trek will give you a great insight into the secret lives of local cultures living in the most concealed areas.
The Route to Tsum Valley
The Tsum valley trek will take you to the paradise land surrounded by the beautiful Mt. Ganesh range, including Mt. Sringi and Mt. Boudha. The valley is in such difficult terrain that it does not receive many travelers. Very few outsiders have been able to reach this promised land, and so many things about the valley are still mysteries. The off-the-beaten trail offers you a walk of your lifetime on one of the hardest trails. You will pass through dense forests, cross raging rivers, amazing waterfalls, and mythical villages.
First, this beautiful hidden valley trek starts from Aarughat. And the trail follows alongside the spectacular river of Budhi Gandaki. Until Jagat, the route is like the journey of Manaslu Circuit Trek. But, from there we hike to Chisapani village. Further, passing through dense forests and other fascinating villages, you walk towards the hidden valley of Tsum. There are small hotels with basic services and facilities. The beauty of the wide landscapes and the clusters of villages, however, is something beyond the ordinary.

Great Trekking Experience
I did the ABC Trek with them. It was a great trekking experience. We only had 12 days, so we customized their 14-day trip to make it a 12-day trek to Annapurna. The company had everything organized carefully, and the trip was very well executed. Ram, the guide, was very helpful throughout the whole trek. Thank you, Ram.
This Was By Far One Of Best Services
This was by far one of the best services I'd gotten. The trip was super challenging and super rewarding all at once! Sanjib and Ram were both excellent and knowledgeable. We trekked to Annapurna Base Camp in November, and it was by far our best trekking experience. They were also incredibly caring, which is important when you are trekking to high altitudes where you have never been before. They always ask how we feel and always check our pulses. Thank you for caring for us throughout the trek. I highly recommend using Heaven Himalaya for any hikes in Nepal.
Arranged An Amazing Trip to Annapurna
Heaven Himalaya arranged an amazing trip to Annapurna. They were very communicative and always provided prompt responses to our questions. Plus, Ram is an excellent guide. He was always concerned about us. Overall, I am not disappointed about booking the trip with them.
I totally loved the holiday package
I totally loved the holiday package organized by Heaven Himalaya. It was very well executed. The driver, our guide, porters, and other people who are responsible for running the trip were very caring and professional. Thank you for the experience.
Amazing Post-COVID EBC Trek
Thank You for making our post-COVID EBC trek amazing. The guides, porters, and Mr. Ram did a great job from the beginning of our COVID test at a hotel in Kathmandu till our farewell in a restaurant in Thamel. We were at our own pace and never hurried. We felt safe and immensely enjoyed our Nepal vacation. With heaven Himalaya, nothing goes wrong. I highly recommend them to other travelers who will book Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek.
