HUMLA – Nepal’s Wild North West.

Humla was once part of the great Malla Empire administrated from Sinja near Jumla. Until 1787 this empire extended as far as to Purang (Taklakot) and the ‘Lost’ great villages of Toling (Zanda) and Tsaparang located in a remote south western Tibet, and to the north of Nanda Devi and Kamet Himal, Nepalese merchants trading wool, salt and Indian goods to Tibet.

In Humla the traditional salt/grain trade with Tibet continues as it has for centuries. This trade has ceased in most of Nepal, because of the import of Indian salt and the other reason is that China has eliminated many border trading posts in remote regions.

Trip Highlights: “Trekking in remote cultural destination of Nepal on the old Trans-Himalayan caravan route, ancient Bon-po (pre-buddhist) culture and on the blue sheep, snow leopard trail, less visited area, Nepal’s wild-west  traditional villages on the backdrop of the high snow capped peaks, serene forest and pristine lake.”
