Tsum Valley Trekking: 18 Days
The Tsum Valley, which was restricted for tourists for a long time, is now the center of attraction for intrepid trekkers, with the government of Nepal recently opening it for group tourists. In order to retain its pristine culture and sustain its fragile ecosystem, the Tsum Welfare Committee is involved in the promotion of responsible tourism in Tsum. However, local participation for sustainable tourism is still a challenging task with a long road ahead. It is a very isolated and remote place, in which the Tibetan culture and traditions are still alive. During the trekking through this area one can discover the ancient Buddhist monasteries and the Tibetan way of life.
