Our Tsum Valley Trek begins after a brief exploration in Kathmandu. Departing from Kathmandu in a local bus, we will embark on a scenic 7/8-hour drive to Machhe Khola, following the picturesque Trishuli and Budhi Gandaki River valleys. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to observe the local bustling marketplace, lush green valleys, rice terraces, verdant hills, and majestic snow-capped peaks through the window of your bus. Once we reach the enchanting Machhe Khola, our Tsum Valley Trek will commence on foot from this point onwards.

The expedition traverses through diverse local villages, observing their everyday endeavors while navigating a challenging and less-traveled path. This route entails crossing multiple suspension bridges, encountering majestic waterfalls, and immersing in the abundant flora and fauna. Our second night is spent in Jagat, the gateway to the restricted zone, where special permits are required for further exploration. Following the same path as the Manaslu Circuit trek until Ekle Bhatti, the journey then diverges towards Lokpa from the New Bridge.

As you proceed beyond Lokpa, you will experience a remarkable change in scenery. Everywhere you go, you will be greeted by stunning landscapes, with the majestic Ganesh Himal Ranges and Manaslu Ranges serving as a breathtaking backdrop during your journey from Lokpa to Chumling. Moving forward from Chumling, the path becomes more challenging as you ascend towards Chhekangparo, the largest and most picturesque village in the Tsum Valley.

During the journey from Chekangparo to Mu Gomba, the path is smooth and gradual. Along the way, you will come across a picturesque valley adorned with lush green crops. Everywhere you look, you will spot yaks and Himalayan thars, as well as numerous Buddhist shrines. This trail presents an excellent opportunity to explore the Milerepa meditation cave, Rachen Gimba, the School of the Buddhist Flowers, Mu Gomba (the ancient and largest Gomba), and the Nunerry Gomba. Moreover, the trip will take you to the breathtaking viewpoints of the Ganesh Himal Range, where you can immerse yourself in the majestic mountain vistas. You can also enjoy a comfortable stay at Mu Gomba. After concluding the visit to Mu Gomba, we will retrace our steps back to Kathmandu along the same trail.
