★ One of the adventurous treks of Nepal
★ Off the beaten in the remote region of Nepal

Tsum Valley Trekking in Nepal, which is of 19 days, has many highlights of the remotest region with snow-covered mountains like Ganesh Himal, Shringi Himal, and Boudha Himal. Since Tsum Valley is the main highlight, you will be here, and it is beautiful for the trekkers, but for others, it could be more than this; for instance, it is a pilgrimage centre, and nothing could be more important than this for the Buddhists and Hindus, who want to pray in the sacred places like hills and mountains.
Tsum Valley Trek is as new as you can think because its gateway was opened for trekkers in 2008, so it is the latest of the unique treks with the beauties you do not find in other parts of Nepal. To some extent, the itinerary of the Tsum Valley Trek matches the itinerary of the Manaslu Circuit Trek. Further, the monasteries you call in English are called gompas in Nepali, and the famous ones are Rachen Gompa and Mu Gompa, the pride of the Tsum Valley; this is also comprised of forests, rivers, and caves. Tsum Valley Trek is an adventurous trek of Nepal; it is also an off-the-beaten trek of Nepal, and its trekking trail takes you to the kingdom of natural beauties and the source of Tibetan Culture.
