Humla District is situated in the Far western region of Nepal in the Karnali zone and Simikot is the headquarters. This is one of the biggest districts in Nepal and covers an area of 5,655 km². Humla to simikot Area Trek is a suited package.
Jumla and Rara lie northwest of Kathmandu in the remote area of Karnali. The route is very much ‘off the beaten track’ and affords glimpses of cultures and scenery very different from the rest of Nepal. The clear, high altitude lake is ringed with pine, spruce and juniper forests, and mirrors snowcapped Himalayan peaks. In summer rainfall is low, ideal for trekking. In the winter there is often snow on the ridge surrounding the lake but the autumn season trekker is rewarded with a profusion of alpine flowers. Humla to simikot Area Trek can be considered the best destination. Except for the army assigned to the park, nobody has lived at the lake since the government resettled the people of Rara and Chapra when the area was declared a national park.
If you are looking for solitude in the wilderness and can overcome the logistical complications of the region, Humla to simikot Area Trek is good choice.
