Humla Region Trekking
Humla (area – 5655 sq km) is the highest, northernmost and most remote district of Nepal. Wedged between Indian subcontinent and the frozen plains of the Tibetan plateau, Humla hides within.
Even today life in Humla continues at a pace unaffected by schedules and stresses that propel the world beyond. Here the villages are medieval and lives of their inhabitants intimately entwined with the rhythm of nature.
Far from the more popular regions of Everest and Annapurna, the mysterious land of Humla will only reveal its secrets to the most determined trekkers. Access is long and difficult, but those who persevere will be rewarded by the most beguiling scenery and culture.
Humla’s northern highlands above ten thousand feet are occupied by the Bhotias, while the southern valleys and riverbeds, including the district headquarters Simikot, are inhabited by the Khasas (presently known as Hindus).
