Limi Valley Trek Highlights:

Limi Valley Trek is a fairly new trekking route that explores one of the most remote travel destinations in the whole of Nepal. Heading to the far-western Himalayas, the Trek navigates around the Nepal-Tibet border to reveal a series of scenic landscapes.
The people in this region live a simple life and follow traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture. During this trek, you will walk through numerous high passes including Nara La (4560m) and Nyalu La (5001m). All in all, the trek is a marvel of both nature and culture.
The 19-day adventure starts with your arrival in Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, you fly to Nepalgunj and then take another flight to Simikot. The trekking to Limi Valley starts from Simikot. The trail threads along the high green cliffs above the rushing Karnali River and makes its way through the rural settlements.
Passing Dharapuri, Kermi, and Tumkot, the trek nears the Tibetan border. Passing moderately forested areas, you reach Yari and continue to Hilsa. On the way, you also cross Nara La (4560m) and Chor Lagna (4107m). Heading north-east from Hilsa, the trail takes off along arid lands and glacial moraines. You might even encounter rare wildlife such as musk deer, Himalayan blue sheep, mountain goat, and Snow Leopard during the trek.
The major villages in the Limi Valley are Jang, Halji, and Til which are highly influenced by Tibetan culture and practices. There are many monasteries in these villages. This provides an insight into the history of the region and the culture that followed. The trail continuously goes up and down to reach Nyalu La Pass (5001m). It is the highest point of the trek.
The majority of the trek takes place in an altitude excess of 3000 m. So, you need to be physically fit for this trek. Humla is a rain shadow region and very less rain takes place during the monsoon so you can trek from April – October. Another trekking option in this area is Phoksundo Lake Trek in Dolpo Region and, Rara lake Trek in Jumla and Rara Region.
