Overview: Limi Valley Trek
Settled between the Indian subcontinent and the solid savannahs of the Tibetan Plateau, Humla lies concealed in the far northwest crook of Nepal. Limi Valley, situated in the northern part of Humla, was exposed for trekkers only in 2002 AD. Since then, only a few tourists have explored the remote yet beautiful villages of Limi Valley. Limi Valley is one of the most amazing places in the Himalayas that are yet to be explored; hence the valley still houses the purest form of Tibetan Buddhism. The tranquility of the quiet paths, the peacefulness of rugged scenery, antique Tibetan civilizations, and charms, are the main highlight of Limi Valley Trek.
Limi Valley Treks begins from Nepalgunj to Simikot by air, and it is from Simikot, the directorial headquarters of Humla, that the trek begins. Trekkers get to move along the ancient salt trading route and the spiritual tracks of Humla all the way up to the border of China and Nepal in Hilsa. The trekkers also get to relish the beauty of the holy Mount Kailash (6714m) from afar. Humla Limi Valley Trek is an appropriate “off the beaten” trek in the Himalayas of Nepal. This journey leads you to the core of uncharted upper valleys of Humla. Discovering the deep valleys of Karnali River and relishing the turquoise color of the stream is another feature of this trek. The trans-Himalayan terrain, amazing passes, and the captivating Tibetan culture in the settlements of Halji, Til, and Jang are the major charms of the Humla Limi Valley Trek. Apart from the untouched beauty, old-fashioned-looking villages, culture, and an age-old way of life can be explored personally on this trek. The remote environment of Humla Limi Valley Trek has greater chances of finding the blue sheep and also the erratic and mysterious snow leopards.
