More information on Humla & Limi Valley Area:
Lying on the far north-west of Nepal, Limi is one of the isolated valley extending over the border of the Himalayan pass near Hilsa to another pass Chang-la between Nepal and Tibet. The longest River of Nepal, Karnali flows into Nepal border at Hilsa where the valley starts from west side. This ancient trans-Himalayan Limi valley is beautiful and scenic. The top of Ghyukharka at 5,000 m offers wonderful panoramic scenery of Nepalese Himalayas from Saipal 7,031 m, Byas, Rishi, API, Kanjirawa, Kanti and Gorakh Himalayan ranges. This region is also famous for rare flora and fauna like the marmot, wolf, wild yak, blue sheep, wild ass (Kyang) musk deer, hare, Himalayan black beer and occasionally the snow leopard in this exotic region.
Humla & Limi valley to Taklakot in Tibet was once part of the great Shah Dynastry administrated from Sinja valley near Jumla. Until 1787 this empires 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. Taklakot is an extraordinary melting pot of traders and merchants from the nearby countries, Indian, Chinese, Tibetan and Muslim traders from Kashgar, Nepalese entrepreneurs trading wool, salt and Indian goods along with Chinese Government officials and a huge army contingent. 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 of remote regions.

Most of the teahouses/lodges are either double bed rooms or twin sharing rooms. Some of the majors trekking destinations, there are deluxe comfortable hotels & Resorts is also available.

Porter Care
We are tremendously concern over the rights of the porters who facilitate traveler`s adventure dreams in the Himalayas. Without porters hard working, your dream to go to mountains will not be certain/guaranteed. It is our serious concern that the porters should be well paid, make sure their warm clothing, well equipped and treated equally even in the harsh situation in the remote Himalayas. In case of emergency situations, we give equal to rescue facilities as other team members get in the adverse situation in the higher altitude including rescue services by Helicopter. Besides this, we too are concern about International Porter Protection Group (IPPG) which works in the field of trekking porter/s by protecting the rights of porter, basic language training to express their problems, make sure for enough warm clothing & other equipment, compulsory Insurance facility. In doing so, we recommend all our trekkers in the Himalayas just to keep their luggage under 30 kg so that it can be handled by porters smoothly in the higher mountains. If possible, try to make about 25 Kg. over 4,000 m & high passes.

Environmental Concerns
Being human beings, it is our responsibility to protect natural & cultural order, to conserve environment and to love nature. Himalayan region is ecologically very much fragile and hence we try to practice “to leave just footprints and take photos” so that future generation will to have chances to experience the beauty of Himalayan region. Respecting natural balance and being sensible towards local environment yields into protecting local cultures as well. Hence, our trip operations tremendously focus on environmental issues in the Himalayas and thereby eco-tourism.

Trekking Group Arrangement
Experience Treks generally provides one trek guide/trekking leaders for the trip operation and porter/s for luggage carrying. It means if there are 4 trekkers, there will be one trek guide & two porters. In the case of porter/s arrangements, there will be one porter for each two paying trekker. This arrangements helps to carry out the trip smoothly even in the adverse situation. Our trips generally accommodate the group of 10 people at a time. Despite this arrangement, we can adjust or run the trips over than 10 people at a time as well as.

Best Seasons
The best seasons of travelling/trekking in the Himalayas are autumn season (September-November) and spring season (March-May). Apart from these two seasons, there is a possibility of trekking in the Himalayas even in the winter and summer seasons which is called off-seasons. In the winter season, cold, snowing & flight delay or cancellation slightly affects the trips & high passes could be closed. But, travelling/trekking in the summer season comes with tremendous rewards for a passionate botanist despite of rainy days, flooding, landslides, flight delay or cancellation like winter season. It will be great in the least rain fall regions & high passes, where are lots of wild orchid blooming.
