Overview

Tsum Valley is one of worlds remotest himalayan valley which was restricted region until recently. The People of Tsum valley or Tsumbas belong to Tibetan origin with their own ancient form of dialect, art, culture and religion. Tsum Valley is new trail for trekking , only camping trek was possible after it was open for trekkers in 2008, however there have been build some simple guest houses and home stay accommodation is available along the trail now,but we the Khumbu Alpine travel do only camping base trek.This is for  those who are interested to know about the culture, people, lifestyle of remote area of Nepal  then Khumbu Alpine Travel will organize trip to Tsum Valley and it is ideal. Very few adventure travelers have made it to this high and mysterious valley, which used to be an important trade link with Tibet . The region is still less  exposed in comparison to other tourist areas, with relatively virgin and less beaten paths in comparison to the more popular regions. The Tsumbas have  their own way of family lifestyle, which may be quite surprising for many outsiders, All the brothers in the family are married to  a single girl, what you may call a practice of polyandry.We follow the same trail of Manaslu Circuit trek for Tsum Valley trek also. We pass through the alpine forests, glacial rivers. We will be blessed with an  opportunity to visit ancient Gompas, lake, Ramchen, Mu and Dephydonma and at the same time enjoy the warm hospitality of the villagers of this region. The trek to Tsum Valley takes us into the majestic surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. We also visit the ancient Buddhist Gombas of the region including the Milarepa's Cave.
