Tsum Valley Trek - 21 Days

 Tsum Valley of Annapurna region, Nepal.

The Tsum Valley, often aliased as the "hidden valley", is situated in northern part of Nepal’s Gorkha district. Tsum is derived from the Tibetan word "Tsombo", which means “clear”. Boisterously poised against the captivating mountainous backdrop of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal, this tranquil Himalayan valley is abundantly blessed with rich cultures, religions and ancient arts/crafts. It is also recognized as a Himalayan pilgrimage site. The Tsum valley still adheres to the preaching of the great Buddhist figure, Chyuchin Milarepa and relates the mindboggling legends about the circumambulation of another Buddhist spiritual leader, Guru Padmasambhava (also known as “Guru Rinpoche”). Animal slaughtering in the name of Gods is akin to a taboo here. Dwelt by the people of Tibetan origin, the valley still emanates the instances of polyandry.

The Tsum Valley Trek involves sauntering along the trails dotted with artistic Chortens and Mani walls, made of stone slabs, carved with drawings of deities and inscribed prayer lines.  We commence the trip with a lengthy drive from Kathmandu to the bustling little town of “Arughat Bazaar in Gorkha district. It’s from here that our footy mission (trek) actually kicks off. The trail heads up the valley of the Budi Gandaki River through wild and unexplored countryside, inhabited mainly by the people of the “Gurung” ethnic group. In the days ahead, we continue walking along the pleasant routes, relishing the views of marvelous chortens and imposing mani walls, simultaneously relaxing overnight in some of the most fascinating riverside camps (Soti Khola & Machcha Khola). Entering Tsum, we get to behold the very clandestine cave, Phiren Phu, which hauls an interesting legend of being a meditating spot of one of the most famed Buddhist figures, “Burji Milerapa”. Our trek also covers the visit to the Dephyudonma Gompa, one of the oldest monasteries in the region and also the famed nunnery of Rachen Gompa. If you get the feel of being fatigued with the long walks, the hot-spring at Tatopani will certainly flex your aching muscles. With all the contentment, the trek finally winds up at Aughat Bazaar, where it had begun.
