Day 4: Fly to Simikot (2960m) then trek to Dhara Pokhari (2300m): This morning we fly north for about 50 minutes to Simikot, the headquarters of Nepal’s most remote district, Humla. After meeting our crew, we set off on our trek, climbing up from the airstrip on a rocky trail past fields of barley and wheat. We ascend a forested ridge above the town of Simikot, before making a long steep descent past Dandaphoya. The trail is then fairly level, through walnut and apricot trees, until we come to the scattered village of Dhara Pokhari which is divided by the Yakba Khola.
Day 5: Trek to Salli Khola (2700m): Leaving our campsite, we cross a long scree slope and follow the river to a waterfall near the shepherds’ camp at Chachera. We then climb over a ridge and bypass the village of Kermi before entering a big valley with walled fields of potato and buckwheat. After walking through a sparse pine forest we descend from the ridge to the Salli Khola and camp by the river.
Day 6: Trek to Muchu (2920m): We cross the river and climb over a rocky ridge before descending to the grey waters of the Humla Karnali. After crossing another ridge we come to a sandy meadow where goat herders often camp by the river. Beyond the meadow the valley narrows and we cross several more ridges, passing the villages of Yalbang and Yangar. The trail then winds its way precariously above the river before we cross a suspension bridge to the village of Muchu.
Day 7: Rest day: Today is a rest day which we’ll spend in and around Muchu, exploring the village with its stone houses and gompa.
Day 8: Trek to Sipsip (4330m): From Muchu, we follow the trail over a ridge to the Tumkot Khola and then walk along the rocky stream bed for a short distance before beginning a steep climb through a rock-filled gully. We pass through Palbang and its bright yellow mustard fields to the small settlement of Yari and beyond here the route climbs up the valley towards a pass, the Nara Lagna. We camp below the pass in a meadow known as Sipsip.
Day 9: Trek to Hilsa (3720m): From Sipsip we ascend steeply to a rock cairn marking the top of the Nara Lagna (4580m). Descending from the pass, we have views of the Tibetan Plateau before arriving at the village of Ranipauwa. Beyond here, we slip and slide on a surface of loose pebbles down to the Humla Karnali.
Day 10: Trek and drive to Taklakot (3930m): Shortly after crossing the Nepal/Tibet border which is marked only by a stone pillar, we meet our transport and drive via Khojar Nath (Temple of Rama, Sita and Laxman) Taklakot is the large trading centre of the west Nepal-Tibet border.
Day 11: Rest day for acclimatization.
Day 12: Holy-Manasarovar (4558m): The highest fresh water lake in the world with a turquoise complexion is full of fish and swans. Holy Kailash Parbat, Mount Gurula-Mandala, Lake Rashekshi are lying on its surrounding. The region is considered rich for gold and other mines, hot springs and hundreds of wild living creatures. Night will be spent at Chu Gumba.
Day 13: Puja and drive to Tarchen (14975ft) 40km: Manasarovar is the lake of compassion, tranquillity and bliss. After completing the memorable morning bath and Puja we will be heading towards Tarchen. It is considered as a base camp for the Holy Kailash Parikrama.
Day 14: Trek to Dehara Puk (5000m): It is an exciting day walking along the beautiful rocky cliffs; waterfalls with some clouds in the clear blue sky, making you feel that Great God Shiva is everywhere with tons of blessing to you. Time to time the face of Kailash Parbat will keep on appearing. For the 15 kilometre trail, it takes almost 7 hours.
Day 15: Hardest but Holiest day of your pilgrimage Yatra with Dolma-La (pass) of 5670m between two valleys: Yamasthal should be crossed to reach the Shiva-sthal while your steps go closer to the pass. Once you reach the top, just do the holiest offering and sit down for meditation. Once you step down, Parvati-stal and Gauri Kunda are on the way.
