    Fast Facts

    • Humla is often known as the ‘Hidden Himalaya’ due to its remoteness
    • The highest mountains of the region are Mt Api (7132m) and Mount Saipal (7031m)
    • Hilsa is the gateway to Tibet's sacred Mount Kailash, which pilgrims from across faiths have visited for thousands of years. The northern landscape of Humla is part of a sacred Buddhist mandala. It has its centre at Mt Kailash and points in the surrounding landscape, stretching for hundreds of kilometres, corresponding to spiritual concepts.
    • The ancient salt trade has traditionally been carried on goats rather than Yaks or mules as in other parts of Nepal.
    • The inhabitants of the three villages of remote Limi Valley are snowed in for six months a year. When the passes open up in spring they head to Tibet to trade their famous wooden bowls for household goods.
