TSUM VALLEY MEDICAL MISSION is recruiting optometrists for its October 2018 health camps in this remote Himalayan valley described by veteran hikers as the “Shangri-La of Nepal.” Family practice clinicians round out the medical team, including mission leader, Rachel Frazin, nurse practitioner. The Tsumbas, as they call themselves, are gracious and grateful, a reflection of their Tibetan Buddhist culture and remote locale.

The trek is 25 days with ten days of care provision along the way. Our trek company manages all the details from airport pickup to departure for the flight home. Porters carry our belongings.
