Tsum Valley, also known as the ‘Hidden Valley’
very unique cultural tradition and their own dialect

Tsum Valley, also known as the ‘Hidden Valley’, is an exclusive trekking destination with beautiful vertical routes that takes trekkers up through beautiful terrain. 

Part of a restricted area, this trek only opened to tourists in 2007 as part of an effort to make a Trans Himalaya Regional trail across Nepal. Tsum' is derived from Tibetan word 'Tsombo' which means vivid. Traditionally the Tsum Valley was a culturally distinct geographical area called 'Tsum Tso Chhuksums,' which means thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory. The altitude in Tsum Valley varies from 1905 in Lhokpa to 5093m at Negula Dhojyang Pass on the Tibetan border. The valley occupies an area about and is surrounded by the Buddha Himal and Himal Chuli to the West, Ganesh Himal to the South, and Sringi Himal to the North. The Valley includes two remote villages, Chhekampar (Upper Tsum) and Chumchhet (Lower Tsum). Due to its remoteness ancient relics are still seen all around the valley.

Chhumchhet and Chhekampar are two of the most remote villages in the Gorkha district. Despite having tremendous potential for tourism development, Tsum Valley is yet to reap benefits from its immense tourism prospects because of its recent opening. People in the Tsum Valley still practice a polyandry system (one woman with multiple husbands), and they have a very unique cultural tradition and their own dialect. They celebrate unique festivals like Lhosar, Dhacyhang, Daka Dawa, Faning, and others. If you plan accordingly, it is possible to go during one of these festivals. Many Tsumbas (residents of the Tsum Valley) report that they have seen or found the signs of Mehti, commonly referred as the 'Yeti' or ' Abominable Snowman'.

The trek starts from Soti Kholat and follows the snaking Budi Gandaki River before passing through a beautiful deep gorge before climbing up

in order to offer glorious panorama of Sringi Himal, Ganesh Himal and Baudha Himal.
