Humla is the highest, most remote and northerly region of Nepal, lying on the border with Tibet. The region’s main town of Simikot is reachable only on foot or by plane in the absence of paved roads.
Life for the Humli people is challenging as the agricultural season in these high mountain valleys is short and the winters long and severe. Farming amidst the region’s difficult, though extraordinarily beautiful and dramatic terrain, is the people’s main source of income and vitality. This mountain landscape of high peaks, cut through by green valleys, turbulent rivers and forests of rhododendrons teeming with wildlife, featuring Hindu and Buddhist temples, shrines and religious sacred places, makes trekking this region an extremely rewarding and rejuvenating experience.
Trekking to the magnificent Rara Lake should be top on every naturalist’s To-Do list. Not only will you get to experience the biggest lake in Nepal (16 km 2), but you will also get to trek through the Rara National Park. Here you will see an abundance of flora and fauna, while getting to soak in breathtaking views of the mighty Himalayas. A bit of stamina is required for this trek as you will be walking on mountain paths. These paths will take your through picturesque villages that will give you a taste of every-day Nepali life.
