The remote and rugged Tsum Valley Trek was not opened to global trekkers until 2008, meaning the trails are comparatively less travelled and more adventurous than many other treks in Nepal.

On this trek, trekkers will be able to explore the remote and beautiful surroundings of Ganesh Himal, Bouddha Himal and Sringi Himal mountain ranges. The trek starts and concludes at Arughat, 7-8 hours drive from Kathmandu. The initial days of the trek are all about hiking to Budhi Gandaki Valley on remote trails that pass through lush forests, terraced fields and beautiful villages. The trekkers need to leave the main trail of Manaslu Circuit trek to head towards Tsum valley. The inner feeling of peace and tranquility that you get in Tsum valley trek is indescribable.

Apart from the exotic Tsum Valley north of Mt. Manaslu, the trek offers and exciting journey along the lower Budhi Gandaki regions of Liding, Machhakhola, Jagat and Philim. Ancient gombas such as Rachen Gompa, Mu Gompa and Dephyudonma Gompa are other important highlights of this trek. Lastly, the warm hospitality of Tsumba people, the indigenous ethnic community of the valley, offers a homely environment to trekkers even in such remoteness.

Tsum Valley trek is an ideal package for the travelers who love solitude and a journey far away from crowds and hustle bustle.

Pitter's review for another Mount Adventure Holidays tour
“Pasang and Pemba Sherpa (cousins) are the best 1, 2 punch combination for Himalayan trekking operators in the region! Our recent trek to the Makalu Base Camp Trek, Makalu conservation Area NP, each brought a thorough and thoughtful approach to the logistical and exceptional elements of the trek. Even when encountering unexpected obstacles, both Pasang and Pemba maintained a calm and controlled demeanor and never once shifted responsibility, even when things that were clearly not their fault came up... they always owned the issue and managed the situation with our well-being and comfort at the forefront of their solutions.

Having never met either guide before landing in Kathmandu, and only corresponding via text messages with Pemba prior to the trip, we left a mere 8 days after arriving feeling as if we had not only made two new, amazing friends, but the kinds of friends we would be honored to call family!

Pemba and Pasang carefully and attentively balanced the authenticity of our experience with our comfort and physical well being for the entirety of our time, and even went above and beyond the footprint of the designed trek to provide additional experiences in Kathmandu with guided visits to the Bodinath Stupa and Darbar Square... both unexpected and amazing experiences!!!

In all my future visits to Nepal, of which my business and I are currently planning, we will be using the services of Pasang, Pemba and the rest of the team at Mount Adventure Holidays... we couldnt have been more pleased with our experience.”

Vincent's review for another Mount Adventure Holidays tour
“I trekked around Manaslu with one of Mount 8850's guide. It was a super experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and when he didn't know the answer of one of our questions, he seeked the answers. He was also very friendly and helpful. He took care of everything for us according to our budget and expectations.
Best trekking experience, I would definitely recommend booking a trekking, climbing or biking trip with them.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.


  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
