A trek to Limi Valley will be a highlight in any adventurers life. Few westerners have imagination! The people are remarkable, the beauty awe inspiring and the travel breathtaking. The Limi Valley, which is at high altitude and very narrow, is often known as the hidden Himalayan valley. It contains three villages set in the mountains, immensely beautiful and rich in biodiversity, and steeped in ancient culture. It is the most remote area in the Humla region of Karnali zone, north-west Nepal, and the least developed. It is this remoteness and inaccessibility that causes many of the difficulties for the people who live there: there are no roads (the nearest is at Simikot, the main town of Humla district, and six days' walk away). People have no option but to rely on a subsistence economy based on labour and with limited livestock. Only around 1% of the land is arable, such that cultivation of grain for food on any scale is not possible.
