The Tsum Valley Trekking is a sacred hidden valley in the Nepal Himalaya, situated in the north of the Gorkha district. The name Tsum comes from the Tibetan word Tsombo, meaning vivid colors. According to Buddhists, the Tsum Valley is known as the Beyul, the holy hidden valley of happiness, first described by Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) in the eighth century.
This magnificent valley is surrounded by the majestic Himalayan peaks of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. It is a region rich in ancient art, culture and religion. Centuries old monasteries, mani walls and stupas lend the area a lost-in-time quality. The famous Buddhist saint Milarepa is believed to have meditated in the caves of these mountains.
The Tsum Valley Trek begins in Arughat after a 6-7 hour jeep drive from Kathmandu. The trail follows the Budigandaki river valley, passing through charming Chhetri, Braman and Gurung villages.
As we ascend the view slowly opens up to reveal the peaks of the Sringi Himal. At Nyak Phedi we leave the main trail which follows the Budigadaki river valley towards Larke Pass.

We pass several picturesque Tibetan settlements and monasteries, and there are spectacular mountains views around every corner. The return trail basically following trail one the way up to Arughat.
