Day 15
Chhekya (4200m/4km/5hrs)
From Yamdro, our trail climbs up high rugged terrain to a high saddle (5066m) before descending to seasonal camps at Sangti, Dhaldang and down to our camp at Chhekya. The pristine alpine landscape is inspiring and reminiscent of ancient Tibetan fables and tales. Welcome to the top of the Tsum world!

Day 16
Khalung (3,700m/5km/41/2 hrs)
Today, our trail descends along the banks of the tumbling  Changmam Khola, back to its confluence of the Shiar Khola. Along the way we see occasional stone yak sheds and as well as occasional herds of Blue sheep. We camp on a scenic and grassy ridge top bench at Khalung.

Day 17
Rachen Nunnery (3,210m / 12 km / 51/2 hrs.)
Finally descending from the high pristine Tibetan landscapes of the past three days, we head back down along the Shiar Khola and across the wide valley below until we reach the red-roofed Buddhist nunnery at Rachen Gompa. Established in 1936, it now houses over 100 maroon-robed nuns, many of whom join the monastery at only 7 years of age. We camp on a grassy shelf overlooking the neighboring village of Lamagaun and the gently-flowing Shiar Khola.

Day 18
Dumje (2,405m / 24 km / 61/2 hrs.)
We drop significantly in elevation today as our trail descends to the warmer climes at Dumje near the confluence of the Shiar Khola with the Laudang and Ghaughung Khola. We cross over the river on a wood cantilever bridge to our camp in Dumje.

Day 19
Gumba Lungdan (3,310m / 12 km / 4 hrs)
Our trail today initially climbs steeply up through dense rhododendron and pine forests. Ganesh III (7110m) soon pops into view before us…while, to the west, an inspiring vista of the distant Manaslu range also appears. The valley we are now entering has the feel of a secret amphitheater, containing a circle of numerous soaring Himalayan giants, including Ganesh I (7429m), Ganesh II (7111m), Ganesh IV (7052m) and Ganesh III (7110m). We camp near an ancient Buddhist nunnery (800+ years old) that clings to a vertiginous hillside with a sweeping panorama of the Ganesh amphitheater. Known as Gumba Lungdang, it is the most remote nunnery of all Tsum valley.
Day 20
Ganesh Himal Base camp (3,800m / 14km / 5 hrs)
We follow a narrower and windy trail today upwards through beautiful deciduous forests, some old-growth Fir trees and across several tumbling streams. We ascend to the shrubby alpine terrain and glacial moraines located between the bases of soaring Ganesh I and Ganesh III. We climb a ridge overlooking the awe-inspiring Ganesh amphitheater, as well as the Toro Gompa Glacier, slowly receding far below our feet.

Day 21
Ripchet (2,500m / 22 km / 7 hrs)
We descend today back to Dumje before following the shaded trail along the lush banks above the Shiar Khola. We traverse two old wood cantilever foot bridges high across deep side canyons before arriving at our camp near Ripchet...a ridgetop village boasting an abundance of good farmland. The narrow and winding stone-lined trails through the village take many unexpected turns and are fun to explore.

Day 22
Philim (1,570m / 26 km / 71/2 hrs.)
From Ripchet, we descend through verdant forests and across several streams as we make our way back through Lokpa, the confluence of the Shiar Khola and Budhi Gandaki rivers, and officially exit Tsum valley. We camp in the slopeside village of Philim, sometimes meeting other trekkers headed up to the Manaslu region..

Day 23
Khorla Beshi (960m / 26 km / 71/2 hrs.)
Our trail continues to descend along the Budhi Gandaki valley, passing through the village of Tatopani where a hot water shampoo and rinse feels very refreshing. We camp at Khorla Beshi, where the owner grows coffee and many other fruit trees.

Day 24
Lapubeshi (880m / 20 km / 6 hrs.)
We proceed downstream, passing a huge landslide on the opposite side of the valley and walking on sandy beaches along the shore of the Budhi Gandaki. Later, we gradually climb to a grassy camp at Lapubeshi, complete with a simple but refreshing cool water shower.

Day 25
Arughat (530m / 25 km / 7 hrs)
Halfway through the day, our trail turns into a dirt road. People and vehicle traffic increases somewhat until we reach the busy but colorful village of Arughat, where we can catch our transport  back to Kathmandu.

Day 26
Kathmandu an easy day   
Day 27
