Trip Overview

Imagine stepping into a hidden paradise, untouched by modern life and steeped in ancient Tibetan culture. Welcome to Tsum Valley, a secluded gem nestled in the Himalayas, east of Manaslu and bordering Tibet. This "vivid valley," as its name translates, is home to the Tsumbas, descendants of Tibetan people who preserve their unique traditions.

Trek through breathtaking landscapes of snow-capped peaks, lush meadows, and rushing rivers. Discover ancient villages where time seems to stand still, and explore Tibetan Buddhist monasteries echoing with the chants of monks.
