Trip Overview

Isolated from the modern world, the Tsum valley was opened for tourists as recent as 2007. The valley lies in Gorkha district and comprises two remote villages, Chumchet and Chhekampar. The name 'Tsum' came from the Tibetan word called 'Tsombo,' meaning vivid.

It is a very distinct place in itself, geographically and culturally. It is called TsumTsoChuksums - thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory.

Tsum valley trek heads up to the Budi Gandaki river through the wild and unexplored country of 'Tsumbas,' which mainly comprises of ethnic Gurung inhabitants. The most interesting fact is that many locales claimed to have seen or encountered 'Yeti' in the region. The region also has a long history of Buddhism, and is believed that the Buddhist saint Milarepa meditated in the caves among the mountains of Tsum.

It is least known to the outside world, therefore, leaving many religious and archaeological relics still intact and unexplored at many places. Locales still practice polyandry system of marriage, with unique culture, tradition and dialect of their own. Some of the festivals observed in the region are, Lhosar, Dhacyhang, SakaDawa and Faning among many others. It also contains many monasteries, stupas, chortens and Mani (Prayer) walls -the longest wall being over 250 meters.

Lhokpa (1,905m/6,250ft) is the lowest point of Tsum Valley and the highest is Ngula Dhojhyang Pass (5,093m/16,709ft), located on the Tibetan border. It is surrounded by the Baudha Himal and Himalchuli in the west, Ganesh Himal in the south and Sringi Himal in the North.

Sample day on "Tsum Valley Trek"

Our trek is managed by a team of professionally trained Leader(s) / guide(s) who have responsibility for all aspects of the journey. Your health, your safety, your enjoyment is taken with absolute professionalism to ensure a successful and memorable ascent to the valley.

Your day starts with a cup of hot tea usually served in your room or at your tent along with a bowl of hot water to wash up a little. After your luggage is packed and the porters prepare themselves for this journey, you sit down to breakfast.

After breakfast we set off on the trail, enjoying the pleasant cool morning air. Your day's trek involves navigating through numerous picturesque forests, hills, mountains and local villages before stopping around midday for lunch. Your midday lunch break usually lasts around an hour and is time to relax, pop the boots off and air those feet! Plenty of time is allowed for photography along the way. After lunch you'll walk another three hours or so, before you stop for the night. You have enough time to change, freshen up, before exploring the area.

Each evening is spent as per your interest whether that's reading or chatting with other fellow trekkers. We have found that having a deck of cards can be an advantage as the crew love teaching various Nepali card games while at the same time learning new Western ones. Our porters and Sherpa's also like to have singing and dancing competitions in which they love you to join in! Don't be shy, you're in the mountains now and you're likely to be the more odd person out if you don't. Finally, it's off to bed for a well-deserved nights rest before you start it all again.

Chortens are Buddhist religious monuments, also known as stupas, which are distinct features in Tsum Valley. They are erected to ward off evil spirits from places that are identified as thresholds such as confluences and bridges or to commemorate the visit or death of historic figures, lamas or even relatives. Kaanis are also called gateway chortens placed before the entry of any village which travellers are supposed to walk through.

Acclimatization
Our itinerary specially tailored considering with a high degree of minimization of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Normally, altitude sickness stars from 3,600 meters/11808 feet and there is no problem below this standard. During your trip this is a best solution go slowly with body acclimatization. Consider in the higher altitude there is less oxygen in the air. Suppose, crossing high passes more than 5,000 meters/ 16,400 feet, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Your body needs many days to acclimatization during the travel in high Himalaya.

Check out "Altitude illness" by Dr Jim Duff

Diamox (Acetazolamide) 
Diamox (Acetazolamide) allows you to breathe faster so that you metabolize more oxygen, thereby minimizing the symptoms caused by poor oxygenation. This is especially helpful at night when respiratory drive is decreased. Since it takes a while for Diamox to have an effect, it is advisable to start taking it 24 hours before you go to altitude and continue for at least five days at higher altitude. The recommendation of the Himalayan Rescue Association Medical Clinic is 125 mg. twice a day (morning and night). (The standard dose was 250 mg., but their research showed no difference for most people with the lower dose, although some individuals may need 250 mg.) Possible side effects include tingling of the lips and finger tips, blurring of vision, and alteration of taste. These side effects may be reduced with the 125 mg. dose. Side effects subside when the drug is stopped. Contact your physician for a prescription. Since Diamox is a sulfonamide drug, people who are allergic to sulfa drugs should not take Diamox. Diamox has also been known to cause severe allergic reactions to people with no previous history of Diamox or sulfa allergies. Frank Hubbell of SOLO recommends a trial course of the drug before going to a remote location where a severe allergic reaction could prove difficult to treat.

Clothing and Equipment

Correct Clothing & Equipments are essential for a safe and enjoyable trek. Experienced trekkers will often take only a selection of these items based on what has worked in the past. Please find the equipment list below for your personal use during your travel with us.

FOOTWEAR
» RUNNING SHOES » : 1 pair for casual Comfortable support shoes wear on lighter walking days.
» LIGHT HIKING BOOTS » : 1 pair of sturdy hiking boots in which you should wear a light synthetic sock under a warm heavy sock comfortably, either wool or synthetic. Sole should be flexible but still provide enough support for your feet. Boots should be very water repellent.
» HIKING GAITERS (Optional) » : 1 pair keeps rocks out of shoes and boots dry in case of precipitation. Optional if trekking pants are worn.
» WOOL SOCKS » : 3 pair heavyweight wool socks to be worn over the liner socks. When layering socks, check fit over feet and inside boots. Remember to keep one fresh, dry pair of socks available at all times. Socks with padded shins are especially nice with boots.
» LINER SOCKS » : 3 pair of smooth thin wool, nylon or Capilene to be worn next to the skin. This reduces the incidence of blisters and hot-spots and makes the outer sock last longer before needing to be changed. They should fit well with your heavyweight socks.

CLOTHING
» LIGHTWEIGHT LONG UNDERWEAR » : 2 pair, tops & bottoms, Capilene, other synthetic or wool. No Cotton. Lightweight is preferable as it is more versatile (worn single in warmer conditions and double layer for colder). Zip-T-neck tops allow more ventilation options. One set of white for intense sunny days and one pair of dark for faster drying gives the most versatility.
» LIGHT TREKKING PANTS » : Lightweight nylon pants designed to be used while trekking. They are extremely air permeable, dry quickly and provide sun protection. Zip-off lower leg sections are convenient for switching to shorts.
» T-SHIRTS » : Lightweight crew style t-shirt that wicks away moisture. Shirt can be made of any synthetic material.
» BANDANA » : Bring bandanas for face masks and other tasks.
» SYNTHETIC/SOFT SHELL JACKET » : A full-zip version is easier to put on and has better ventilation than a pullover.
» INSULATED DOWN-JACKET » : Medium to heavy weight with hood.
» HARD SHELL JACKET WITH HOOD » : We recommend a waterproof breathable shell material with full front zipper, underarm zips, and no insulation. This outer layer protects against wind and rain.
» HARD SHALL PANTS » : Waterproof, breathable. Any side zipper length is fine as long as you can get them over your boots.

HANDWEAR
» FLEECE/SOFT SHELL GLOVES » : 1 pair. A heavier fleece will do a better job of keeping hands warmer when wet than lighter polypropylene or Capilene.
» SHELL GLOVES WITH INSULATION » : 1 pair. Insulation does not need to be removable. A good quality ski glove is sufficient.

HEADWEAR
» HEADLAMP & SPARE BATTRIES » : A good quality climber’s headlamp. For use at night, bring extra batteries!
» SUN HAT » : The sun can be intense at high altitude. A hat with a good visor provides protection for the nose and eyes. Baseball hats work well. A Buff is recommended to reduce the amount of dust inhaled while trekking and reduces the chance of infection.
» NECK GAITER OR BUFF » : Buff is preferred for covering the face and preventing sickness.
» GLACIER GLASSES » : 100% UV, IR, high quality optical lenses designed for mountain use, must have side covers, leashes, and a nose guard is particularly helpful. No more than 8% light transmission. If you wear contact lenses we recommend packing a spare pair of glasses—it is a good idea to have these with “photo-gray” or equivalent light-sensitive material so they can double as emergency sunglasses. If you wear glasses we recommend prescription glacier glasses (gray or amber). Talk to your eye care professional to find out where prescription glacier glasses are available. Regular sunglasses are not dark enough and do not provide any side protection from the sun.
