Situated deep between the sweltering Indian sub-continent and the frozen plains of Tibetan Plateau, Humla lies hidden in the far northwest corner of Nepal. It receives heavy snowfall and remains isolated and snowbound throughout the winter; lower parts of Humla are mostly resided by the Khasa tribe. Another isolated valley nearby is Limi which extends from the border of the Himalayan pass near Hilsa to another pass Chang-la between Nepal and Tibet. The longest river of Nepal Humla 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 Gyuckarka at 5,000m offers wonderful panoramic scenery of Nepalese Himalayas from Saipal 7,031m, Byas, Rishi, Api, Kanjirawa, Kanti and to Gorakh Himlayan range. This exotic region is also famous for rare flora and fauna, for instance, the marmot, wolf, wild yak, blue sheep, wild ass (Kyang) musk deer, hare, Himalayan black beer and occasional sighting of snow leopard.

HUMLA-NEPAL’S WILD 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 remote south western Tibet, and to the north of Nanda Devi and Kamet Himal. Taklakot is an extraordinary melting pot bustling with traders and merchants from the nearby countries India, China, and Tibet as well as Muslim traders from Kashgar. The place is also occupied by Nepalese entrepreneurs trading wool, salt and Indian goods along with Chinese Government officials and a huge army contingent. In Humla, the traditional trade of salt grain with Tibet continues as it has for centuries. This trade has ceased in most of Nepal because of the import of the Indian salt. Another reason is China eliminating many border trading posts in remote regions
