Tsum Valley is one of the remotest Himalayan Valleys. The trek to Tsum Valley takes you into the magnificent surroundings of the Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, and Boudha Himal ranges. The region (once a part of Tibet) looks completely different from what you will find elsewhere. The people of Tsum Valley are Tsumbas who belong to Tibetan origin with their ancient sort of dialect, art, culture, and religion. Only a few adventure travelers have made it to the present high and mysterious valley, which is a crucial trade link with Tibet.
