Really decent people from Nepal at work
Ever since I met a group of really decent people from Nepal at work, I've always wanted to travel there and experience the country's food, people and culture firsthand. In March this year, I had that chance, and I am really thankful to Sudan and the team at Himalayan Dreams for their support.
Limi Valley Trekking
The ancient salt trade route in the Himalayas unquestionably commemorates man’s mightiest strength of resilience and growth. We take this trade root which still seems hidden from the modern world. This takes us straight to the border of Nepal and China. This is a region which still actively follows Shamanistic traditions mingled with Buddhism.
The main road takes us across the Nara La pass at 4269m. Once we reach the border town of Hilsa, the road splits and we turn northeast to the Limi Valley. This trek contains within itself the very length and breadth of the Himalayas’ ultimate delights. Its landscapes range from alpine pastures and wild rivers to inspiring hills and mountain vistas. In many ways, Humla is a distillation of all that the Himalayas offers: isolation, grand scenery, gentle people and mountain wildlife at natural ease. We delight in crossing the two high mountain passes of Nara La and Nyalu La and savor the stark and spectacular panoramas, from the hills, himalayan peaks and meandering waterways and riverine forests to some of Nepal’s finest vistas.
