Tsum Valley Trek details

The Tsum valley has not long been open to trekkers, it stays a remote and exceptional portion of the Manaslu Region. The lower region is feral, forested and steep-sided, as one should anticipate of a capitulated world. The main populated zone of the Buddhist Higher Tusm valley is surprisingly gentle and is whereas most villages are located. The valley here is expansive but hemmed in by shockingly sheer-sided cliffs. Higher up is the Tibetan Expanse alongside arid Landscapes of barren hillside, hidden monasteries and soaring, bizarrely corroded massif sides.  Traditionally Tsum valley was a socially different geographical region shouted 'Tsum Tso Chuksum’ that way thirteen areas administered as a solitary territory. The antique stays of the Tsum Crown are yet visible today. Due to its remoteness and inaccessibility, this holy valley and its people have been bypassed by mainstream progress for centuries. As a consequence, the exceptional sophistication of this valley has stayed intact.
