Kailash and Upper Humla Circuit Trek


Grade: strenuous

Duration: 25 days

Maximum elevation: 4900m Humla, 5650m Kailash


This treks starts from Simikot which is situated at an elevation of 2910 meters and climbs up to Nara La pass (4530 meters) going through Dharapori, Kermi, Muchu and Yari villages primarily of Tibetan ethnicity before reaching the arid Tibetan Plateau. Since the opening of the route in 1993, it is popularly used by the trekkers as a gateway to Kailsh, however the unique cultural attractions within these areas itself are unexplored until today. From Simikot, it takes a 6-day’s journey to reach the Tibetan border town. So it is physically practical and safe route to Tibet as it allows the time and exercises for acclimatization.


After the visit of Mount holy Kailsh and Lake Manasarovar, you trek back through Limi valley ending to Simikot to fly back to Kathmandu. You also can make the round other way starting from Simikot towards Limi into Kailash and return back into Hilsa and Yari. In either way you will have a complete experience of the upper Humla and west Tibet, a complete experience of Tibetan culture and tradition.
