Trip Detail

The hidden valley trek starts from Simikot which is situated at an elevation of 2910 meters and climbs up to Nyalu La (4950m). And make a loop back to Simikot via Limi valley through scenic landscape. This is tough but rewarding trek that offers the opportunity to meet the friendly villagers of upper Humla. Visit the monasteries that are 400-1000 years old and experience the unique culture of the past still in practice. Added to this is scenery of pine-forested Karnali gorge and beautiful Saipal and Nalakankad mountain range. The area untouched by modern changes is believed to be the present form of mythical Shangri-la. Limi is the only place, where you can see fresh Tibetan culture and costume because of their cultural and matrimonial relationship with west Tibet. Many Tibetan culture and monasteries were destroyed in Cultural Revolution but Limi valley lying inside Nepal was not affected at all. It is like a small Tibet or Lo-manthang in Upper Mustang.

During June,July, August while monsoon rains are drenching most of the Nepali countryside, the Limi valley, which falls in the rain shadow, is considerably drier. Apart from misty mountain views and lush green vegetation, the valley offers other splendid sights and scents as wildflowers, indigenous herbs and flowering buckwheat, mustard grow with the season. This is an ideal time to visit for travelers who dislike crowds, enjoy solitary walks and want more interactions with local inhabitants.
