Humla to Kailash Trekking

Mt Kailash & Humla Valley -21 Day



Trip Introduction
------------------------
Trek through Nepal's Humla region to Mount Kailash
Cross the border between Nepal & Tibet on foot
Visit the magical waters of the fabled Lake Manasarovar




Mount Kailash
Located north of the Himalayas, in one of the remotest parts of western Tibet, lies the fabled Mount Kailash (6714m.). No one has ever been permitted to climb this sacred mountain and its virgin summit remains undisturbed by man. To both Buddhists and Hindus alike, this is the most revered peak in the Himalayas.

Hindu pilgrims consider the mountain to be the home of their God - Lord Shiva. For Buddhists, Mount Kailash is said to be the Center of the Universe - the axis mundi in Asian cosmology. Every year hundreds of pilgrims travel from all over the Indian sub-continent and Tibet to make the ritual circumambulation around the mountain in their quest for enlightenment and this trek will join them on their journey. With the border between Nepal and Tibet now reopened, a great new trek is now possible which travels to Kailash on foot rather than the long and arduous drive through Tibet. Beginning in Katmandu you will fly to Simikot in the far western corner of Nepal and from there trek north through Humla district to Taklakot. We follow an ancient trading route used by Tibetans who sold valuable salt to Nepal and returned with grain.




Even today a remnant of this early commerce still continues and we may see the occasional caravan plying its trade. After an enjoyable week of trekking you reach the border at Taklakot where you are met by our Tibetan team and transferred by jeep to the foot of Mount Kailash. From here we follow the Kora, the 35-mile trek around Mount Kailash. Most pilgrims complete the circuit in a single lengthy day, whilst western trekkers usually take a more leisurely four days for the trip.

After this trek we visit the shores of Lake Manasarovar, an important place of pilgrimage for the many Hindus who make the difficult journey from India. This magical lake is said to be the source of several major rivers including the Indus, the Brahmaputra and the Ganges, whose waters flow southwards to the Indian plain bringing life to millions.




Only the most intrepid trekkers will make this fascinating journey to the far west of Nepal and Tibet. Those who will be rewarded with the beautiful unspoilt valleys and villages of Nepal's Humla and Simikot Valley, the spectacular circuit arround Mount Kailash, and the tremendus panorama of the Himalaya seen from the north, stretching from the Indian Garwal range across to northen Kashmir.

Simikot & Humla Valley

The governments of Nepal and China has reached on an agreement that allowed the first treks across the border between the two countries in May 1993. While it had been a route for Nepali pilgrims & traders for years, foreign trekkers were never allowed to trek from Nepal into Tibet. The trek through the Humla Valley, the unspoilt land of the far west of Nepal, the admiring reward to the trekkers by it's innocent people and pristine nature, is worth the trek by itself.

The lower Humla, Limi valley and upper Humla Karnali valley are populated by "Bhitias" who trade extensively since from the history with Tibet in traditional ways that have totally vanished elsewhere. It is only near Simikot, the district headquarters, that you will encounter people of the other groups, mostly Thakuri and Chhetris.

Equipments & Packing List
While packing for “ Mt Kailash & Humla Valley ”certain gears are essential to be considered.

Acclimatization

Humla Valley is in the Himalayan Rain shadow parts attach to the Trans Himalayan flank of Tibet and this trek itinerary is planned with a high degree of minimization of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to kill. The higher the altitude the less oxygen there is in the air. While traveling in Tibet; and walking around of Holley Kailash at the altitude of 5656m/18556ft; this is the highest and challenging section of your trek and require days of acclimatization, hence your trek itinerary is gradually ascending getting up these height where you expect 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Your body needs many days to adapt to this, so for a safe trek it absolutely essential to allow for sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS.

We advise specially the guest(s) with known heart or lungs or blood diseases to consult their doctor before traveling. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorder are symptoms of AMS.

Beauty Nepal Adventure's itineraries are designed to try to prevent AMS but it is important to remember, some people can be more susceptible than others.

Leader(s) & Staff Arrangements
Beauty Nepal Adventure only employs and train Nepalese leaders and local staff. By employing and training local people they put something back into their communities. BNA currently train all their Guides in the following courses and your Tent Peak ( Tharpu Chuli ) Peak Climbing leader will be one of the fully train Trek Leader.

Eco Trekking Workshop & Adventure Meet TAAN (Trekking Agents Association Of Nepal)
English Language
Conservation & Biodiversity
Rock & Ice Climbing & Mountaineering (optional) Nepal Mountaineering Association
Our Trek Leaders obviously speak the English language but consider this is not our mother language and this enables a Beauty Nepal Adventure traveler to pick up and use a few of the local greetings and get first hand experience of the local culture. The guides and porters know the route direction like the back of their hand, they practice the local culture themselves and they are extremely passionate about their country and it shows.


Our operation is smooth as a safety concern; there will be one Leader, one assistance leader and one sherpa porter on each group of two. This ensure if in case one get sick, it would not disturb the itinerary, the trip still running as plan as in itinerary. And please understand that our group start from 2 and maximum it goes up to 10 which is good team to communicate and facilitate in every manner.
