Limi Valley Trekking

About The Limi Valley

Limi Valley TrekkingThe Limi Valley is known as the hidden Himilayan Valley because it is situated at the high altitude (4325m.) and very narrows. It is one of the most beautiful, adventurous and exciting place for the trekkers. Tibetan dominates the culture, custom and language. The culture and heritage of the Limi region is rich and varied as well as ancient. Gaily painted ornament and crafts man making drums are the popular things of this region it contains three villages set in the mountains, immensely beautiful and rich in biodiversity, and steeped in ancient culture. The total population is around 950. It is the most remote area in the Humla region of Karnali zone, north-west Nepal, and the least developed. It is this remoteness and inaccessibility that causes many of the difficulties for the people who live there: there are no roads (the nearest is at Simikot, the main town of Humla district, and six days' walk away). People have no option but to rely on a subsistence economy based on labour and with limited livestock. Only around 1% of the land is arable, such that cultivation of grain for food on any scale is not possible.

It was forbidden for tourist, but now it is open those trekkers who want to visit remote but beautiful place. Before start the trek, we have to obtain special permit from Nepal Government because the Government of Nepal controls it. To trek the limi valley needed to preparation from Katmandu for accommodation, foods etc. You cannot get any modern or few facilities of foods and accommodation. It is totally out of normal trekking trail. We have to spend the night at camp or in local houses in some places. Where you can find beautiful forests, villages, wild animals, birds with scenery of snow capped mountains. Limi valley treks shows not only Nepal’s beauty, from here you can see famous Holy Mountain in Tibet “Mt. Kailash” as well Mt.Saipal Himal(7031m),Changta(6563m)Flrnkob(6736m)and Kandambu(6219m)etc. You either can extend your tour to Tibet or only finished until Nepal boarder.
