The Humla District is located in the northwestern region of Nepal in the great Himalayan mountain range bordering with Tibet. Secluded from modern life, Humla is one of the most remote districts of Nepal. Simikot, the capital of Humla district is only accessible to other parts Nepal through small aircraft.
Humla is one of the sacred places on the earth, where Bon, Tibetan Buddhist and Shamanism are prospering harmoniously. Humla comprises the cultural tapestry of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, and ancient Shamanism are rhythm with nature. Lower valleys of Humla is home of Khas ‘Hindu’ people whilst Upper valleys of Humla is home of mangoloid ‘ Bhotiyas’ people and are the followers of Bon and Tibetan Buddhism.
Besides the cultural diversity, Humla is also enriched by natural diversity and this secluded region is also home of many endangered species of Himalayan flora and fauna. Some of the most beautiful and red-listed Himalayan mammals and birds are roaming in the highland pastures of Upper Humla.
Humla Wildlife Trekking is a rare opportunity to tracing the footprints of some extinct and red-listed animals of remote Humla valley of Nepal. This trip offers a lifetime experience of nature, culture, and adventure of Humla valley.
Recently, in 2014 and 2015 the great wildlife researcher and conservationist Geraldine Werhahn in their project and her team successfully completed their research expedition in the trans-Himalayan grassland of Himalaya including, Humla, Dolpo, and Kanchanjanga.

Humla Wildlife Trek, start after a scenic mountain flight from Nepalgunj to Simikot. Then trail leads through Humla Karnali river to the north crossing Nara La pass 4560m to Hilsa border with mesmerizing scenic views of Himalayas. From the border town of Hilsa, the trail bends northeast towards the amazing Limi Valley. The valley holds three Tibetan type Buddhist villages like; Til, Halji, and Jhang. Untouched with the modern lifestyle the valley remains isolated during the winter season. Beyond the Limi valley, we continue to the north and near Tibetan border for a week and we search the Himalayan animals on the grassland. Then we descend to Takche and enter to the hidden wild Nying Valley. We spent around two weeks to search the wild animals along the Nying valley and Chuwa Khola and trail end to Simikot.
