Entering the rarely visited and mystic Limi valley seems like stepping back in time. Due to the isolated location, villages are very untouched and pure. Century-old Buddhist tradition interwoven with shamanistic influences is still an important part of daily life here. You follow the ancient salt trading and pilgrimage route to the border of Nepal and China, the crossing Nara La pass (4620m). From the border town of hilsa, you turn northeast towards the Limi Valley. During this trek, you have a chance to spot the elusive snow leopard, blue sheep, jackals, hyenas, and musk deer. You sleep in authentic, small Buddhist villages and camp in amazing spots amidst the snowcapped mountains. Due to its remote location, Humla is still an “off the beaten trek destination”. Especially in spring and summer, you see few other tourists.
