Simikot Limi valley Trek is a trek to one of the most off beaten tracks to the remote regions of Nepal situated in the Humla district of the far north-western part of Nepal, bordered by Tibetan. Trekking in this area was restricted before 1993 hence the trek offers a perfect blend of well-preserved culture and scenery that is very different from the rest of Nepal.
Simikot is the administrative headquarters of Humla District and the starting point of this trek. The trekking trail to Limi valley goes alongside Karnali River (the longest river in Nepal towards various destinations in Humla, where you may encounter different Himalayan wildlife like blue sheep, wild yaks, and snow leopard. Before reaching Limi valley, the trek takes you to the border town of Hilsa, from where you can get an amazing view of Mount Kailash a holy mountain located in Tibet. The highlight of this trek, Limi valley, is also known as Shangri-La for its untouched and preserved beauty, natural as well as cultural. The valley also has an exceptional topographical position called “rain shadow” which allows trekkers to trek even in the monsoon season. The valley of Limi reminds of Tibetan landscape with the dry and desert-like terrain. The region is inhabited by Tibetan origin communities like Nyinba, Bynsi, Limipa, and Khampa. The people here still practices BonPo religion, the pre-Buddhist religion. You stumble across many Monasteries, Chortens, stupas, Mani walls, and prayer flag-laden passes during the trek.
