It is one of remote and secluded Himalayan valley in Nepal that offers true glimpse of bygone era. The geography of the region comprises frequent coming uphill and downhill section making it fairly demanding trek. Because of its long isolation from outside world, this region is highly preserved area in terms of ancient culture, tradition and lifestyle.

Tsumbas are known as Tibetan origin that still follows Tibetan ritual and speaks their own unique dialects. Polyandry is still in practice amongst some families; where single girl is supposed to marry all the brothers in the family. The valley is rich in ancient culture, heritage and antique site. Their unique art includes amazing square chortens, clustered stones houses and numerous worship centers with ancient art. Mu and Dephyu Doma Gompa (800 years old) are the highest places of year round habitation. Moreover, endangered Himalayan Thar, Blue Sheep and Snow-Leopard might be seen at the higher elevation.

The trail to Tsum Valley Starts after a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Soti Khola via Arughat. The trail traverses through numerous ridges and village as it reaches to Philim. The trek turns east into the lower section making its way to the border of Upper Tsum Valley.  The main highlights of Tsum valley trekking is Chhekampar village which is decorated with traditional stones houses, slate roofs and Milarepa’s cave.
