Limi Valley Trek – Kathmandu To Kathmandu

The Limi Valley trek was opened to foreigners only in 2002 because the area is connected to Tibet in the far west of Nepal. It follows an ancient trade and pilgrim route over challenging trails and high passes. Only a limited number of permits are issued each year to protect the delicate ecosystem of the Limi Valley, minimize the number of tourists and ensure that the area’s flora and fauna remain intact for generations to come. It is one of the last true wilderness areas within the Humla district where centuries-old Buddhist traditions still exist and the people of the north-western part of the district are more like their Tibetan neighbors to the north than their Hindu neighbors. Eastern part of South District. On this trek, trekkers can see not only the giant mountains of Nepal, Saipal, Vyas, Rishi, Api, Kanjirova and Kanti, but also the revered and sacred Mount Kailash on the border of Tibet.

The trail passes through yak pastures, cultivated land, streams and waterfalls, down streams and through interesting villages. The view point of Yak Khark (4900m) offers a panoramic view of Mount Kailash in Tibet. Until now, this pilgrimage can be continued on the traditional pilgrimage route of Mount Kailash, but the Chinese government has stopped this practice. Evidence of the connection between Humla and Tibet can be seen in the prayer flags and gem stones that line the pathways and the beautiful stone (Tibetan-style) villages and the 1,000-year-old Rising Ling Gompa. Similarly; possible wildlife includes marmots, wolves, wild yaks and Himalayan black bears. Among rare mammals, snow leopards and blue sheep are known to inhabit the region. However; This amazing trek highlights a different Nepal than seen on some common trekking routes. It gives a glimpse into the mystical land of Tibet without the formalities of getting there! The ancient sights and sounds of this trek more than make up for a challenging trek for a few long days.
