Limi valley trek
is an astrenuous trek starting from Simikot and goes via Hils into Limi Valley
, which consists out of three villages, notabley Til, Halji and Jang. Via Kermi we trek back to Simikot in Humla District. This trek is about being a part of positive change in one of the worlds remotest, unexplored and ruggedly beautiful yet most impoverished regions in the ‘Hidden Himalayas’ of North West Nepal.
The Nepal Trust, a pioneer in responsible tourism in the far Western corner of Nepal since 1995, was the first development organisation in this vast region, if not the entire country, to initiate the so-called ‘Treks-to-Build Health & Community’ programme. Limi valley trek aims at a sustainable kind of tourism, whereby travellers, who want to leave more than just their footprints, waste and by-products on a trek, instead educate and enrich themselves as they are offered the opportunity to get involved hands-on with community-based development projects.
We will trek to one of Nepal’s oldest monasteries which is located in the Limi Valley, the valley that houses the mystical Shangri-La myth; Halji Gompa. Here we do several restoration works in order to preserve one of Nepal’s last true jewels in the all but forgotten valleys of the Himalayas in North West Nepal. Your trek team will be supporting the renovation of this important community monastery and also will conduct several works and surveys on micro hydro, solar and health infrastructure along the way. Without health, power and education communities like Halji and thousands of others will find it incredibly difficult to find the necessary motivation let alone resources that make belief in and action for positive change a possibility.
These communities in the deep-end of the Himalayas that have suffered through a decade of a destructive insurgency need the support of a New Tourism. So Limi valley trek is most for all the travelers and for the development..
