The Tsum Valley Trek is a hidden gem in the remote and off-the-beaten-path region of northern Gorkha, Nepal. Tucked away between the majestic Himalayan peaks, this culturally and spiritually rich valley has remained isolated from the outside world for centuries, preserving its unique traditions and customs. The trek offers a rare opportunity to explore the unspoiled beauty of the Himalayas, as well as to immerse in the rich Tibetan-influenced culture of the local people.
