Starting from the picturesque town of Arughat, the trail also gradually ascends through lush green forests, terraced fields, and quaint villages inhabited by the warm-hearted and hospitable Tsumbas. Enveloped in tranquility, Tsum Valley is renowned for its sacred monasteries, chortens, and mani walls that stand as testaments to its Buddhist heritage. The revered Mu Gompa, an ancient monastery dating back to the 9th century, is a spiritual haven for pilgrims seeking enlightenment. As trekkers also continue their ascent, the breathtaking views of Ganesh Himal and the Shringi Himal range leave an indelible mark on their souls.
