Limi Valley Circuit Trek

19 Days




Limi Valley Circuit Trek is the last remaining area of true wilderness in Nepal. Limi Valley Circuit Trek is an isolated valley extending from the border of the Himalayan pass Hilsa and Chang La between Nepal and Tibet and is tucked deep in the wilderness of Humla. It happens to be one of the few places on earth where true adventure to the unknown lies ahead. The only means of transportation are mules, donkeys and horses. Limi Valley Treks start from Nepalgunj to Simikot by air and it is from Simikot, the administrative headquarters of Humla, that the trek commences.

Trekkers get to walk the ancient salt trading and religious trails all the way up to the border of China and Nepal as they get to get a glimpse of Mt Kailash, Mt Saipal, Mt Mendun and Ghur-La Manadala. Along the way, there are natural waterfalls,hot springs and dense forests. Marmot, wolf, wild yak, blue sheep, wild ass, hare, Himalayan black beer are some of the animal that dwell in this region. Occasionally, highly endangered mammals like the blue sheep and snow leopard can be spotted in this exotic region. Once you reach the Limi valley, you will pass through barley and buckwheat fields, different villages. Since Limi Valley borders Tibet, the locals are of Tibetan descendants with their unique norms, culture and traditions and even their own dialect.

Their sources of income are animal husbandry and occasionally, trading of goods. You can notice that the culture has been well preserved here. From the top of Gyuckarka which lies at an altitude of 5000 meters, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Nepalese Himalayas including Saipal, Kanjirawa, Kanti, Gorakh, Rishi Himalayan range. We at Global Adventure Trekking take it as our prime responsibility to ensure our clients get the most out of their trip and hence, take into account the most minute of details. Limi Valley has only been opened to tourists recently. Even today, to protect the eco-system, the Nepal government issues limited permits and special fees. In spite of the difficulty in getting a permit, every bit is worth it as Limi Valley is like no other place on the entire planet as it proves to be the most thrilling adventure for daredevils. Global Adventure Trekking arranges the trekking permit which is sought by sending a series of applications and guarantee letters to the concerned government agency. In the restricted areas, you need to be in a group of two to travel. This is a requirement set by the government. We ensure that all our customers are aware of the rules and regulations before venturing on any trip.
