    Route Description

    Upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be warmly welcomed by our friendly staff. He will then accompany you to your hotel in the bustling city of Kathmandu. After settling in and relaxing for a bit, you can either take it easy or go out in the lively local culture by exploring nearby markets.

    Before embarking on your exciting Tsum Valley adventure, you will explore the rich cultural heritage of Kathmandu with a comprehensive sightseeing tour. Once you've had your fill of the city's many wonders, it's time to hit the road and head toward Soti Khola. This is where the real adventure begins.

    You'll trek through picturesque villages like Machha Khola and Jagat to reach the Lokpa in Tsum Valley. The valley is a mystical land steeped in Tibetan Buddhist culture.

    As you journey deeper into the valley, you'll visit Chumling, Chhokang Paro, Nile, Mu Gompa, and Rachen. The trek's highlight is undoubtedly the visit to Mu Gompa, a 1000-year-old monastery perched high on a mountain peak. After visiting Rachen, you'll trek back to Chumling, Lokpa, and Jagat before heading back to Lapubesi. The journey ends with a drive back to Kathmandu, where you can reflect on the unforgettable memories of the trek.

    When Are The Best Times To Book This Adventure?

    The best time to book this Tsum Valley Trek is during autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May). During these times, the weather is relatively stable, with clear skies and mild temperatures. All these things add up to comfortable trekking conditions. The views of the snow-capped mountains are also at their most spectacular during these seasons.

    However, it's important to note that the trails can get quite crowded during peak trekking seasons. If you prefer quieter trails, you may want to consider booking during the winter months (December to February). While the temperatures can drop below freezing, the snow-capped peaks, the peaceful surroundings, and the uncrowded trails make the experience worthwhile. Please keep in mind that the winter season requires more preparation.

    On the other hand, the monsoon/summer season (June to August) is not recommended for this trek. The trails can be slippery and dangerous due to heavy rainfall and potential landslides during this time.

    How Adventurous Is The Journey?

    The Tsum Valley Trek is graded as an easy to moderate-level trek. Having said that, the adventure still requires a certain level of fitness and endurance. The trek includes steep ascents and descents. It requires you to hike for long hours daily.

    Altitude sickness is a common concern on this journey as the route reaches heights of over 5,000 meters. However, we have prepared a well-planned itinerary with enough acclimatization days to minimize the risk. Lastly,  It is important to listen to your body and take breaks when needed. Our experienced guides will be there at every step for any help needed.

    If you want a more adventurous journey, you can check out the 15-day Manaslu Circuit Trek. This adventure will take you on a circular tour around the majestic Manaslu region. Here, you'll be greeted with breathtaking scenery at every turn.
