Hiking in remote Tsum Valley,
NEPAL

September 28 - October 13, 2024


16 days

Spots available: 7 out of 10

An amazingly beautiful journey that will be remembered for a lifetime
The opportunity to visit remote Tsum Valley, bordering Tibet, has only recently become available to foreign tourists - this valley was opened to us in 2008. Therefore, foreigners are not often seen here, and the valley has preserved its unique Buddhist culture to the maximum. Local residents lead their peaceful rural lives, not influenced by tourism. We are here for the untouched wilderness, a lifestyle straight out of a movie, the chance to stay overnight in local homes, visits to unique Buddhist temples and ceremonies, the warm and sincere smiles of Nepalese people, delicious homemade food, and of course, for the incredible views of the snowy Himalayan peaks throughout the entire trek. In addition to the Tsum Valley, we will satisfy our mountain ambitions and reach the Ganesh Himal Base Camp at an altitude of 4800 meters, stopping along the way for an overnight stay at the Buddhist monastery of Lungdang.

Reviews about travels in the Himalayas with Tanya:
The beauty that opened up to the eyes was simply endless. Most of the time, I felt like a happy spaniel with a sideways tongue. And we were so lucky with the team - it just happened that all strangers were such a great team - comfortable, supportive, not intrusive, but always walking alongside when needed.

Now I want to trek, see higher mountains, and come to the Himalayas again. Thank you, Tanya Sharapova, for this miracle, the discovery of a new world, the extremely friendly team, and a new feeling about myself. It was one of the most beautiful, divinely beautiful places in the world I've ever seen. It was one of the most remarkable trips in my life.
Alex
Head of PR
Wild untouched nature and spectacular mountains, the opportunity to be alone and at the same time in the company of such nice people. Tanya showed us incredible places. Now I can't imagine myself lying on the beach for two weeks, staying in the same hotel, when there are so many fascinating things in the world. I want to have time to see everything!
