The Tsum Valley is a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley situated in northern Gorkha district of Nepal. The trail that climbs through Philim village and heads up over a ridge leads to Ganesh Himal Base Camp and the Tsum Valley. Starting from the old town of Arughat the trail heads up the valley of the Budhi Gandaki River through wild and unexplored country inhabited mainly by the Gurung ethnic group and entering Trans-Himalayan terrain and to the hidden valley of Tsum and crossing the Larkya La Pass (5106m) and then entering the Marsyandi Valley along the main trail of Annapurna circuit. The trail passes through the age old monasteries, chortens and mani walls, traditional villages and natural diversity. This trek offers a glimpse of preserved authentic villages, rich natural heritage and traditional local culture and their hospitality that are fast disappearing from other major trekking regions of Nepal.
