Kathmandu, Nepal (PressExposure) June 08, 2014 -- Aptly called the "hidden valley", Tsum valley is loacated in the remote northern Gorkha region of Nepal. The valley is nestled between the Baudha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the north. Owing to its distant location, inadequate information and promotion, trekking route to this region was only opened in October, 2007.

True to its meaning Tsum valley till date has closely guarded its distinct and natural treasures of clear streams, teeming vegetation, towering mountain, cascading waterfalls, unspoiled hot springs and ancient relics still intact. One of interesting feature of this trek is the people and their unique culture and lifestyle that they still follow.
