This is the province of Humla, often referred to as the Hidden Himalayas and ups and down trails, will soon become your mantra. The high altitude lake is ringed with pine, spruce and juniper forests, and mirrors snowcapped Himalayan peaks. The people here are primarily farmers, livestock herders and traders. In spite of alpine meadows and difficult terrain for farming they depend upon supplementary of salts for their existence. They supply salt from Tibet to barter with grain from lowlands of Nepal. They have developed their lifestyle as Buddhists in Tibet. The route is not much obstacles. The glimpses of cultures and scenery are very different from the rest of Nepal which makes the visitors experienced of real remote areas. This route across over the beautiful and high remote area of Karnali and entering in Simikot-Hilsa valley. This tough but rewarding trek offers the opportunity to meet the friendly villagers of upper Humla. Visit the monasteries that are 400-1000 years oldand 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 and believed to be the present form of mythical Shangri-La.
