The Humla Limi Valley Trek is an adventure off the beaten path in the Himalayas of Nepal. This trek takes you to one of the last remaining true wilderness areas in the country, located in the remote Humla District. Here, you'll find a unique blend of ancient Buddhist traditions and a way of life that is more similar to neighboring Tibet than to the rest of Nepal. The people in the northwestern part of the district still hold on to their centuries-old cultural practices, making this a fascinating journey into a relatively untouched part of the Himalayas.
The Humla region in the far west of Nepal is a remote and scarcely visited area that has recently become a dream destination for trekking enthusiasts who want to explore the unique natural and cultural landscape of Tibetan Buddhists. The trek takes around 16 days, starting with a six-day journey through remote Humla villages following the Karnali River, one of the main tributaries of the Ganges River. After reaching the Tibet border at Hilsa, the trek continues west for another ten days, following the course of the Limi River through rare Tibetan Buddhist villages, nomads, and their animals.
During the trek, the group will be camping in tents and will be accompanied by experienced and reliable staff, including a guide, cooks, and porters to carry all the necessary trekking gear and pack animals. High-quality camping equipment and a variety of healthy, hygienic, and delicious food will be provided throughout the journey.
The trek is rated as moderate, with some strenuous days, so a reasonable level of fitness is required. This is a trek for adventurous individuals who are willing to embrace basic living conditions in order to experience the remote, rural mountain life of Nepal's people.
