Tsum valley is also known as remotes Himalayan region which was restricted area until 2008. After its open for tourist in 2008 so far very few adventure travelers have been made to this  high and mysterious valley, which used to be trade link with Tibet.

Our journey start from Kathmandu to Kathmandu but the real trek start after we reach  Arughat it is the place where we begin our trek and end our trek. Arughat is a seven hours drive from Kathmandu. The first half of the trek ascends the Budhi Gandaki Valley on good paths through a mix of dense forest, terraced fields and hill villages. As we leave the main Manaslu Trail for the Tsum valley, suddenly we get a feeling of entering truly into the hidden valley.
