Tsum Valley trekking takes you to a mesmerizing valley surrounded by stunning mountains. It is located in the northern part of Manasalu surrounded by Buddha Himal, Himal Chuli, Ganesh Himal and Shringi Himal. Actually, Tsum Valley was an important trade link to Tibet. Since it had a good connection to Tibet, the dialect in language, art, architecture, civilization, the culture will be unique to the visitors. It is truly a blessed hidden valley into the lap of the Himalayas. Most of the people’s religious and cultural practices are of Tibetan origin.
