north east of the Manaslu (mountain of the spirit) trail, was first opened to trekking in 2008. In the
the Tsumbas of the Tibetan origin, speak a unique dialect and still trade to the north. The valley is rich in ancient art, culture and religion. It adds a richly rewarding extension to the Manaslu trek.
A scenic drive through the Middle Hills leads to the trail head beyond Arughat at Soti Khola. The
crosses numerous ridges and villages as it rises to Philim. Here it turns east into the lower, then broader Upper Tsum Valley. Crops grown include barley, maize, buckwheat and potatoes. Look out for Himalayan Tahrs and Bharal (blue sheep); preyed on by the illusive snow leopards.
Highlights include the village of Chhekampar with its stone houses, slate roofs and Milarepa’s cave. The monastery at Mu Gompa and Rachen Gompa to the south has nuns of the Ngak-pa sect. Gumba Lungdang is another important nunnery where trekkers are welcomed at the evening puja. Their 360° views are amongst the best on the trek. From there a forest track leads to the Ganesh Himal Base Camp.
At Lokpa, the trail rejoins the

In Samagaon, visit the Kargyu Chholing Monastery and Pungyen Nunnery. A high trail leads to the
