Tsum valley lies in Gorkha district and comprises two remote villages called Chumchet and Chhekampar. The name Tsum came from the Tibetan word called Tsombo, which means vivid.
Traditionally Tsum valley was a very distinct place geographically and culturally therefore was called Tsum Tso Chuksums, which means thirteen provinces ruled as a single territory.
This land is so unexplored that many religious and archeological relics are still intact at many places in Tsum. People in Tsum Valley still practise polyandry system and they have unique culture, tradition and a dialect of their own. Their unique festivals observed here are Lhosar, Dhacyhang, Saka Dawa, Faning among others.
The residents of Tsum valley are called Tsumbas. The most interesting fact is that many Tsumbas have claimed to have seen or encountered Mehti, most commonly referred as the Yeti.
The valley occupies an area of about 1663 sq.km. The lowest point of Tsum Valley trek is Lhokpa (1905 M) and the highest is Ngula Dhojhyang Pass (over 5093m) on the Tibetan border. The Hidden Valley is surrounded by the Baudha Himal and Himal Chuli to the west, Ganesh Himal to the south, and Sringi Himal to the North.
Chhekampar village is called the Upper Tsum while Chumchet village is called the Lower Tsum.
