    This guide to going to help me a lot. I am a hiker but never been to Nepal and apart from the trek to Everest base camp, I want to do other trails as well but never really looked into them. Now after reading this, this has given me a better idea of what to do, how to prepare and learnt about the permits. Have bookmarked this page for future reference. Thank you.

    Nepal has always seemed like such an exotic place to visit. I am not sure we will ever get there. But I love to see what I am missing by not trekking the 8th largest peak! I am sure I would find most of this trek to the “adventurous”. But oh what amazing views you got on your trek in Tsum Valley. Snow capped peaks about misted valleys look stunning. Good to visit spots like Tsum Valley that aren’t the most popular spots. But good to know permits require at least 2 people. If I ever did this, I would definitely hire a guide.

    Wow, I’ve literally never heard of Tsum Valley before. It’s a pity everyone goes to only two of the peaks. I don’t know how well I’d fare hiking this – I’ve gone to 4000 metres before, but that was in a car! Did you have any problem with altitude sickness, or was the walk slow enough that you easily acclimatised? And thank you so much for all the information about what permits we would need to obtain, that’s very helpful and detailed information.

      Thanks, Rhonda. And for your answer, I never felt any kind of air sickness beside we took everything with an easier pace.

    I have never heard of Tsum Valley. Tsum Valley does sound like one of the best alternatives to the two major ones. It seems more doable for trekkers, less touristy and more achievable. Thanks for breaking the days up and showing what to expect and how much you climb on that day.

      Thanks, Jane. Tsum valley sure is a great alternate option for all the touristy places in Nepal.

    I have not visited Nepal yet and do have this on my list of places to visit. However like you have pointed out all I read about treking in Nepal revolves more around Annapurna and Mount Everest. Tsum valley certainly should feature now and should be more promoted. It is absolutely stuniing and your visuals add life to this post. I would definitely look at hiring a guide to explore the Tsum Valley Trek. Tahnks for sharing a less known trek from Nepal.

      Thanks, Amar. Annapurna and Mt Everest are great but way too touristy, especially during the live seasons.

    When I think about trekking in Nepal I always think about Annapurna and Mount Everest. I had no idea that Tsum Valley is so spectacular and you can actually hike there as well. From all I read the valley was closed till 2008, so the tourism in that area is probably just picking up. Soon this will be equally famous and possibly even more popular than the other two places. It looks like such a great place for photography!

      For me, it was better than Annapurna, as not a lot of people know about it yet.

    Nepal is such an amazing country. But it’s still unexplored. I had personally limited it to Kathmandu and Pokhara. To be honest I hadn’t even heard about Tsum Valley. The trek looks adventurous. Would love to try it someday as mount everest and Annapurna are distant dreams.

    Thanks for sharing how to travel and visit this place. I never knew that there are other permits that needs to obtain, aside from travel visa. But I think it makes sense, coz it is part of security.
