Limi Valley Trek


Humla Limi Valley Trek

The Humla Limi Valley Trek, also known as the "Humla Limi Valley Trek," is a cultural trek in Nepal's northwestern corner near Tibet. Follow the Karnali River on this trek as it takes you through beautiful villages with prayer flags and traditional stone buildings. The trek gives you a look into the lives of ancient pilgrims and traders. It also shows you the natural beauty of the Himalayas, with their tall peaks and valleys filled with bright wildflowers. Even though it is far away and high, the trek is worth it because it leads to unforgettable memories.

The Limi Valley Trek is a journey that is both transformative and a trek through the remote reaches of western Nepal. Tibetan culture and tradition are very rich, and this is a great chance to learn more about them. This hidden gem shows how Nepal and Tibet have always been connected through history, keeping alive a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation. It is a hidden gem that is spread out in the western part of Nepal. You will be traveling along old paths that were once important routes for trading salt and going on spiritual journeys. This will show a landscape that cannot be compared to anything else and has deep cultural meaning. These things will happen to you during the journey.

You will continue your trek by going through the dangerous Nara La pass and climbing up to the top of Nyalu La. This will take you deeper into the Himalayas, where you can see stunning views of snow-covered peaks. The chance to see hard-to-find animals makes this journey more interesting. The graceful shape of the snow leopard, the quick Bharal grazing on rocky slopes, the haunting call of the jackals at night, the royal kiang roaming the high plateau, and the shy musk deer darting through old forests are just a few examples. The Limi Valley Trek is more than just a trip through the real world. It is an adventure that will stir your soul and connect you with nature, history, and people in a way that not many other experiences can.

The Limi Valley Trek, which lasts 18 days, is a tough test of endurance and strength because it is at a high altitude. You have to work hard for hours on end to make it through the rough terrain and reach dizzying heights above 10,000 feet. Acclimatization is important because moving forward on the journey means finding the right balance between pushing forward and paying attention to the weather. This amazing trip is only accessible from May to October when the passes are less likely to freeze over during winter.

From Kathmandu to the Limi Valley, the trip is like finding new views and hidden treasures in a beautiful woven tapestry. When you walk from the busy streets of the capital to the peaceful, beautiful valley, the Himalayas are always there to draw you in. In addition, the trip shows how different cultures are connected, from Tibet's long-standing traditions to Nepal's lively festive customs. From the moment the sun rises until it goes down, there are hundreds of chances to fully immerse yourself in the rhythm of life in the mountains, make friends with other trekkers, and appreciate the unbreakable spirit that lives inside all of us.

    Early the next morning, wake up for an exhilarating northbound flight to Simikot, the district headquarters of Humla, perched on a ridge with breathtaking views of the Humla Karnali River and snow-covered peaks. If the flight is punctual, you'll reach Simikot before lunch, where your amiable trek crew will greet you. Simikot's unique allure stems from its role as the gateway to Mount Kailash and Western Tibet, offering an eclectic blend of local Humla and Tibetan culture to explore. At an elevation of almost 10,000 ft (3,000m), you may feel the effects of altitude, so take it easy today, stay hydrated, and take breaks while immersing yourself in the fascinating village surroundings.

  • 05 Simikot to Dharapori (2400m)

    Today's trek commences with a brief ascent of approximately an hour, leading you to a quaint pass at an altitude of just over 9,800 ft (3000 m). From there, you'll embark on a long and steep descent to Dharapori. The journey will span around 4-5 hours, offering captivating views high above the Karnali River, meandering through pine forests, and passing by charming villages. Along the trail, you'll have the opportunity to encounter local Hindu and Buddhist communities, witnessing their resilience as they carry heavy loads up the rugged path. As the day draws to a close, you'll have your first camping experience near the serene Karnali River.

  • 06 Dharapori to Kermi (2,900m)

    Today's trek offers a leisurely walk, allowing you to recover from the previous days' journey. The trail gracefully follows the course of the Karnali River, at times elevated high on the slope with the river flowing far below, and occasionally descending to nearly water level. Along this stretch, the river winds its way through narrow gorges, flanked by imposing rocky slopes. The surrounding landscape showcases fields of barley, buckwheat, rice, and potatoes, painting a picturesque scene.

    In the afternoon, indulge in relaxation at one of the two natural hot springs located close to the village. A 30-minute uphill walk, passing through Kermi village, will lead you to this soothing experience. Kermi is a quaint agricultural village and marks the first entirely Buddhist village along the trail. Notably, there are two intriguing monasteries nearby. Laikyo Gompa, with a history spanning several hundred years, lies about 45 minutes from the campsite, while Lhundrup Choeling Gompa is just a 30-minute walk away. These monasteries, rarely visited by tourists, offer a glimpse into the region's rich cultural heritage.

  • 07 Kermi to Yalbang (3,125m)

    Today's trek presents a mainly flat or slightly uphill trail, bordered by barley and buckwheat fields, occasionally offering glimpses of sunbathing lizards on rocks. After 2 hours, a short pass leads to a steep 20-minute descent, culminating at a large iron suspension bridge over the Sali River. The route showcases beautiful pine forests and views of the emerald green Karnali River. You may encounter mule and dzopa caravans, carrying villagers from Simikot and Nyinba Valley to Taklakot in Tibet for trading. After 5-6 hours of trekking, you'll reach Yalbang, where the impressive Namkha Khyung Dzong Monastery stands atop. Look for a large stone with a Tibetan mantra as you approach the monastery. With approximately 130 resident monks, a Buddhist monk will graciously guide you through, followed by a tea invitation upstairs. Don't miss the daily puja (Buddhist prayer ceremony) at 7 am and 4 pm for a spiritually enriching experience.

  • 08 Yalbang to Tumkot Khola (3030m)

    Leaving Yalbang, the trail ascends high above the Karnali River, passing the quaint village of Yangar after about 20 minutes. The path varies between "Nepali Flat" sections with ups and downs, and at times, spectacularly carved passages through the rocks resembling three-sided tunnels. The landscape gradually transforms, becoming rockier, and the towering pine trees give way to smaller bushes. Crossing the Karnali River via a sturdy wooden suspension bridge, you'll follow the trail along the upper side of a deep gorge, offering stunning views of the emerald green river below. Keep an eye out for large flocks of sheep carrying salt, an enduring trade tradition. After 3-4 hours, you'll arrive in the charming village of Muchu, followed by a one-hour walk to Tumkot. Although the main trail bypasses Tumkot Village, you can visit the small teahouses and campsite nearby. Today's trek will take approximately 6 hours. Not far from the campsite and village lies the renowned Dhungkar Choezom Monastery, a significant Sakya monastery in the Tibetan region. Though it requires a 20-30 minute climb, the effort is well worth it, as this is the sole Sakya Monastery in Humla and one of the few of its lineage in Nepal.

  • 09 Tumkot Khola to Thado Dunga (3,660m)

    Leaving Tumkot, the trail gradually ascends with intermittent steep climbs, leading to noticeable changes in the landscape, which becomes increasingly rocky and desolate. The remaining trees consist mainly of low junipers, and some sections of the trail overlap with the ongoing construction of a dirt road. The completion of the road remains uncertain. Along the way, you'll come across the small village of Pani Palwang, offering a few teahouses where you can enjoy a cup of tea or take a lunch break. After approximately 1 ½ hours, you'll reach Thado Dunga, just beyond Yari. Today's trek will total 7 hours, and you'll camp shortly past Yari village for the night.

  • 10 Cross Nara La Pass (4,330m). Trek to Hilsa (3,645m)

    Today's trek takes you across the challenging Nara La pass, situated at 14,000 ft (4,330 m) above sea level. The ascent is long and arduous, but the captivating views serve as a rewarding incentive. As the trail climbs, the landscape transitions into a desolate and treeless terrain reminiscent of Tibet. You may encounter impressive caravans of mules and yaks, especially the larger yaks, along the way. Passing a few teahouses at Tado Dunga, the trail steepens, leading to a 2-hour climb to the pass, which may take longer if there's snow. Typically, this day's trek lasts 5-6 hours. About half an hour from the pass, you'll come across tent hotels offering food and drinks. The Nara La pass can be recognized by a pile of stones, where adding one is considered auspicious, and the fluttering Tibetan prayer flags, their prayers carried afar by the strong wind. Once you reach the other side of the pass, the surroundings resemble Tibet, with barren mountains painted in shades of brown, copper, ash, and dark yellow. From the pass, a lengthy descent awaits, leading you to Hilsa, near the border with Tibet.

  • 11 Hilsa to Manipeme (3930m)

    After breakfast, you'll head north through the newly constructed road to Limi Valley, following the Humla Karnali River's suspension bridge. The valley is renowned for its snow leopards and Himalayan blue sheep. After trekking for 4-5 hours, you'll reach Manipeme, a campsite at an elevation of 12,900 ft (3,930 m), named after the Mani Mantra engraved on a large rock.

  • 12 Manipeme to Til (4,100m)

    From Manipeme, the journey leads through Chenglungma caravan campsite to the old cave of Cha-sa Nam-ka Dzong, a south-facing rocky cliff favored for retreats due to its convenient location and access to ample firewood. Although today's distance may seem short, the trail from Hilsa to Til takes nearly 7 hours and proves challenging with its dry, sloping, and undulating terrain, earning the name Trans Himalaya Dread Path. Exercise caution as you encounter yaks and sheep laden with trading packs returning from the border. In the Limi Valley, three villages exist—Til, Halji, and Jang—with Til being the closest to the Tibet-China border and the smallest of the settlements, comprising around 30 families. Don't miss the 300-year-old Kunzum Do-Nag monastery on the village's right side, worth a visit.

  • 13 Til Village to Chagzur Hot Spring (3950m)

    Today's trek begins with a one-hour downhill walk to Tiljung, situated just below which flows the Tagtsi Khola, the main tributary of the Karnali River. After crossing the suspension bridge over the river, you'll follow the Tagtsi River into the narrow valley to reach another bridge. From there, head northeast for about half an hour to reach the scenic Halji village, the largest and most significant in Limi. Don't miss the 800-year-old Rinchhen Ling Gompa monastery at the center. Continue eastward, passing through a beautiful Buddhist entrance gate and Mani walls, for another 1.5 hours to reach Jang village, home to a 250-year-old monastery. After an additional hour of trekking, totaling 7 hours for the day, you'll finally reach the soothing Chagzur hot springs—an inviting and welcome destination.

  • 14 Acclimatization Day

    Today is a well-deserved rest day after a challenging 10-day journey. You have two options to choose from: relax and do laundry while enjoying the natural hot-spring baths, or, if the weather permits, seize the opportunity to witness the majestic Mt. Kailash and the sacred Lake Manasarovar in Tibet from the vantage point of Lapcha Syar at 16,000 ft (4,900 m). For those eager to experience the panoramic view, hiring a truck is possible (arrangements can be made easily) due to the rough road access from Tibet. The round trip to the viewpoint and back to the campsite will take approximately 5-6 hours. The decision is yours to make, and either option promises a fulfilling and rewarding experience on your rest day.

  • 15 Chagzur to Jade/Nyalu Base Camp (4000m)

    As you journey from Chagzur hot springs towards Tagtsi, you'll encounter the convergence of old caravan trails, Humla-Manasorover, and Humla-Limi. Along the way, a newly established settlement called Tugling will come into view, boasting modern amenities like VHF telephone service and a Limi-run restaurant. From Tugling to Nyalu base camp, you have two options: a shorter route along a new road, or a more picturesque yet longer trail passing through Tagtsi, where you'll find the ancient ruined village of Tshamdo or Zambuk, with its remaining chorten (Buddhist stupa). Crossing the Nyingchhu River from Zambuk will lead you to the captivating Tshomgo Lake and Talung meadows, where you'll witness the camps of Limi and Humli shepherds and yak-herders at Jade/Nyalu base camp. This captivating journey is estimated to take around 7 hours.

  • 16 Nyalu Base Camp to Sheng Jungma (4180m)

    Exiting Nyalu base camp, a two to three-hour climb leads you to the breathtaking Nyalu Pass (14,000 ft/4,990 m), surrounded by stunning mountain ranges. Descending from the pass, you'll encounter the picturesque Sheliman Lake at 15,000 ft (2,570 m). From there, your descent takes you to the verdant Tshongsa meadow at 13,600 ft (4,140 m), crossing the Tshongsa River and entering a rhododendron forest. The trail offers glimpses of the magnificent Tshongsa rocks and the mesmerizing Tshongsi Tsan waterfall (the wild Demon of Tshongsa). After a rewarding 7-hour trek, you'll arrive at the lush pastureland of Sheng Jungma, nestled within a dense jungle habitat.

  • 17 Sheng Jungma to Langdogd Base (4150m)

    Today's journey will lead you across the Tshongsa River. Begin by following the left bank of Zhetse Khola (river) towards the east, ascending for approximately 3-4 hours. Then, cross the stream to the right. Just before crossing the bridge, you'll have the opportunity to visit the summer camp of the Chyadok village herders, where you can relish the captivating scenery of Zhetse valley. Additionally, a visit to the campsite of the Dinga village herders, known as Langdogd Base, awaits you on this remarkable path.

    From the campsite, your journey continues with an ascent through the dense jungle towards Langdogd Pass, situated at an elevation of 14,900 ft (4,550 m). Once at the pass, you'll embark on a steep descent through enchanting juniper and birch forests until you reach the Takhor Khola. Crossing this stream and trekking for about 1.5 hours will lead you to the picturesque campsite of Laga Dinga, also known as Lekh Dinga, resting at 12,800 ft (3,890 m). This charming location serves as the summer village of Laga Dinga and once served as an autumn trading center for both the Limi and southern Humli People. The tranquil and pleasant ambiance makes it an ideal spot to spend the night.

  • 19 Lekh Dinga to Simikot

    Today's journey starts with passing Yapka and Tangin villages on the left and Aul Dinga (Lower Dinga) on the right. Descend steeply for about 1.5 hours until reaching Yapka Khola at 8,600 ft (2,600 m). Cross the wooden bridge and ascend towards the Thakuri village of Okhreni for a little over two hours. From Okhreni, walk straight along a new road for about three hours until reaching Simikot Lagna, offering a beautiful view of Nyinba valley.

Stay updated on the current weather forecasts and be prepared for any changes that may occur. Sudden weather shifts can affect the trail conditions and your overall safety. Carrying a basic first aid kit is highly recommended. It should include essentials such as bandages, antiseptic ointment, painkillers, and any necessary medications. Additionally, having travel insurance is a wise precautionary measure to cover any unforeseen circumstances or emergencies that may arise during your trek.

Lastly, it is essential to follow the guidance of experienced guides or porters. They possess valuable knowledge of the region, the trail, and potential challenges. They can provide insights, offer assistance, and ensure your safety throughout the journey. Before embarking on the trek, always check the current trekking conditions and any possible trail closures. This will help you plan your route accordingly and avoid any hazardous situations. By taking these safety considerations into account, you can have a more secure and enjoyable experience while trekking the Limi Valley.

Ethic Himalaya Treks & Expedition (P) Ltd is dedicated to providing exceptional services, ensuring an unforgettable journey for you. We are committed to honesty and diligence, striving to make your experience smooth and enjoyable. All services will be delivered as agreed upon during booking, following our policies and those set by the Tourism Authority. However, please be aware of the inherent risks involved, and you must take responsibility for your actions and participation. The adventure may entail extreme conditions, unpredictable weather, and itinerary changes beyond our control. Proper acclimatization to high altitudes is crucial. Our trips often take place in remote areas, where access to emergency services and medical facilities is limited. In case of serious injury requiring hospitalization, evacuation may take several days, affecting your recovery. While helicopters are commonly used for evacuation, they may not always be available due to weather conditions. We cannot be held responsible for any changes or cancellations due to factors such as government restrictions, natural disasters, political unrest, flight cancellations, delays, sickness, accidents, or vehicle breakdowns. Any additional costs incurred are the client's responsibility. Therefore, we strongly advise obtaining travel insurance covering cancellation, curtailment, personal liability, and loss of luggage and personal effects. Proof of travel insurance is required on the first day of your trip, and without it, participation will not be possible.

Certified by the Government of Nepal and proficient in English, our Trekking Guide from Ethic Himalaya is designated to accompany you from the moment of your arrival in Kathmandu until your departure. Entrusted with the pivotal role of ensuring the triumph of your expedition, he holds the authority to steer its course. We encourage you to actively engage with him by seeking clarification through inquiries and, most importantly, by adhering to his expert counsel.

  • Trekking Guide: The Trekking Guide is the overall leader of the team. Often starting as a porter or kitchen assistant, the Sirdar commands respect from the entire team. Their experience and leadership are invaluable in ensuring the trek's success.
  • Cook (Applicable for tent trekking): The Cook is in charge of meal preparation. They hold the responsibility for crafting delicious and nourishing dishes for the team. A vital role, especially in tent-based treks, where quality meals are crucial for the trekkers' well-being.
  • Kitchen Assistant (Applicable for tent trekking): The Kitchen Assistant, commonly known as the kitchen boy, assists the Cook actively. The number of assistants depends on the group's size. This role serves as a stepping stone towards becoming a Cook and involves hands-on support in the kitchen.
  • Assistant Guide or Sherpa: The Assistant Guide or Sherpa assists and guides clients, regardless of their ethnic background. Their numbers vary based on the group's size, with a ratio of 4:1 Assistant Guides to clients.
  • Porters: Nepal's mountainous terrain has a rich tradition of human porterage, an ancient practice that persists to this day. Some porters associated with agencies request loads exceeding 25 kg to earn higher wages. We are committed to compensating extra for each kilo beyond 25 kg to the porters. However, to prevent exploitation and manage the porters' physical strain, we kindly urge trekkers to be conscious of their baggage weight. Baggage exceeding 25/30 kg places additional strain on the porters and is best avoided. Your cooperation in maintaining reasonable loads ensures the well-being of both trekkers and porters.

You move on foot with a light backpack, containing your personal belongings necessary for the day (water bottle, camera, protective clothing...). The rest of the equipment is carried by the porters to the next accommodation. We ask everyone not to exceed 13 kg for the bag that will be carried by the porters. You will be able to leave your belongings at the hotel in Kathmandu and pick them up when you return from trekking.

NB: On your arrival at the hotel in Kathmandu, you will be provided with a suitable travel bag, in thick canvas. You will transfer your belongings there and can leave your bag or suitcase at the hotel. Although relatively waterproof, it is preferable to compartmentalize your belongings in plastic bags or waterproof sub-bags.

Nepal is a mountainous country, the tradition of human carrying dates back to the dawn of time, and still continues today. The porters earn little, but the income from this activity is still more lucrative than other manual tasks. Without trekkers, the mountain populations would live even more poorly, and the porters would lose their means of subsistence.

The standard load must not exceed 25 kg per male/female carrier (outside the scope of expeditions). At the request of male carriers, their load can be increased within the limit of a maximum ceiling of 45 kilos. For each kilo over 25 kg, the carrier is awarded additional compensation.

We ask you, moreover, to make an effort to limit the weight of your bag entrusted to the porters:

  • At most 13 kg for a trek in a lodge or in a tent
  • At most 16 kg (including 3 kg for technical equipment) for a trek with summit ascent.

In addition, Ethic Himalaya takes care to take out insurance for the porters. Specific equipment is allocated to them for passages of the collar in altitude (even if often the carriers refuse to put the shoes for lack of habit...).

We strictly prohibit our local teams from hiring porters under the age of 16. This instruction is not always well understood by the Nepalese themselves. Reporting, on your return, abuses observed on the spot is insufficient. As a responsible traveler, it is also your responsibility to help us enforce this right by reporting any breaches to your guide and demanding that this part of the contract be honored from the start of the trek.

We are dedicated to providing an exceptional culinary experience during your camping trek in Nepal. Our commitment to taste and nutrition ensures that your energy is replenished after a challenging day on the trail. Here's how we elevate your dining experience:

  • Breakfast: Start your day with nourishing choices. Pick from hearty porridge, or assorted cereals, or opt for freshly made chapatis or toast. Enjoy eggs prepared to your liking. Sip on a variety of hot beverages, including classic tea, herbal infusions, rich hot chocolate, and coffee from our Bialetti Moka machine.
  • Lunch: At midday, take a well-deserved break by a convenient trail spot with water access. Our skilled kitchen team departs early to prepare lunch upon your arrival. After your meal, relax before resuming the afternoon trek.
  • Dinner: Upon reaching camp, savor light refreshments like biscuits and a choice of tea or coffee. Around 6 pm, indulge in a lavish three-course dinner served in the cozy mess tent. Kick off with delightful starters, often soup with popcorn or poppadoms. Our diverse main dishes include various proteins and carbs like rice, potatoes, or pasta. We accommodate diverse dietary preferences, offering vegetarian and other dietary-specific options. If meat dishes are served, vegetarian equivalents are standard. Before departure, we gather your dietary details to tailor the menu accordingly. Feel free to ask about our offerings – your satisfaction matters most to us.
  • Dietary Preferences and Allergies: When you reserve your trip with us, kindly let us know if you follow a specific diet, have dietary restrictions, or have allergies. Our field teams are dedicated to accommodating your needs as best as possible. Yet, please be aware that local constraints might limit the variety of alternative menus we can provide.
  • Boosting Energy for Demanding Journeys: For trips involving rigorous physical activity, it's wise to plan ahead. Consider bringing extra items like energy bars, dried fruits, and chocolates to ensure you maintain adequate calorie intake. This proactive approach will help sustain your energy levels throughout your adventure.

During the trek, tea and coffee are provided with meals. Soft and alcoholic beverages, including mineral water, are not included and are the responsibility of the participants. You can refill your water containers at the lodges, but it's important to treat the water with purifying tablets to ensure it's safe to drink. To reduce plastic waste, avoid buying bottled water and opt for treated water available in the villages. This way, we can limit the issue of plastic bottles and promote responsible environmental practices during the trek.

Transportation within Kathmandu Valley is facilitated by private vehicles, tailored according to the group size. During trekking periods, we provide the services of Porters to carry your baggage for the day. It is important to note that one porter will be assigned to assist two members.

  • Transfers: Airport pick up and drop by Private vehicle.
  • Domestic flight: Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, Nepalgunj to Simikot, Simikot to Nepalgunj and Nepalgunj to Kathmandu.

We kindly request your attention to the mandatory use of seat belts in all vehicles utilized during the trip, both in the front and rear seats, where they are available and in accordance with the regulations enforced in the visited country. By participating in the trip, you agree to adhere to this safety requirement. Please be aware that Ethic Himalaya cannot be held responsible for any bodily injuries or material damages incurred if this safety provision is not complied with by you.

In Kathmandu, you will sleep in three-star hotels offering comfortable double rooms with good amenities at a reasonable price. These hotels provide basic facilities such as en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning or fans, TV, and Wi-Fi access. Additionally, they may have in-house restaurants serving a mix of local and international cuisine, along with possible amenities like rooftop terraces, business centers, or small fitness areas.

Limi Valley Trek, set in a remote and less populated environment, lacks lodges, teashops, and guesthouses. Consequently, a comprehensive full-board camping setup is meticulously organized, complete with experienced guides, skilled cooks, Sherpas, and diligent porters who oversee all aspects of your journey. Porters manage gear transport and personal belongings, while culinary experts prepare nourishing meals. Accommodation consists of two trekkers per tent, and our trekking cook ensures fresh food. The day starts with hot tea around 6 to 7 AM, followed by cleansing and breakfast before trekking. With a flexible pace allowing for sightseeing and a lunch break after approximately 3 hours, the afternoon trek leads to the next campsite by 4 to 5 PM, complemented by tea and snacks. As evening approaches, the dining tent is prepared for dinner service around 6 to 7 PM, featuring thoughtful design and lantern lighting to underscore our commitment to an exceptional trekking experience.

Clients are required to inform the Company in writing about any medical conditions, physical challenges, or other mental and physical conditions that could affect their fitness to travel or any pre-existing medical conditions at the time of booking.

Trekking in Nepal involves long hours of walking daily, ranging from 3-10 hours and sometimes even up to 8-12 hours in high passes. To prepare for this physically demanding journey, Ethic Himalaya Treks recommends engaging in approximately 12 km of daily walking or jogging exercise for at least three months before embarking on the Nepal Trekking. This preparation is essential to endure the challenges of high-altitude conditions and remote areas for extended periods.

For a successful and enjoyable trekking experience in Nepal, participants must possess strong willpower, the ability to tolerate harsh conditions, a high level of fitness, and good health. Participants are responsible for their medical and evacuation expenses. It's vital to consult a doctor for necessary vaccinations and other medical requirements before the trip. Additionally, Ethic Himalaya reserves the right to request a medical certificate before confirming the booking for the trek. Being well-prepared physically and medically is crucial to ensure a safe and fulfilling journey through the beautiful landscapes of Nepal.

Travel insurance is a compulsory requirement for all travelers and must be obtained at the time of booking. The insurance should provide coverage for personal accident, death, medical expenses, and emergency repatriation, with a recommended minimum coverage of USD 200,000 for each category. It should also include accidents, injuries, illnesses, and related medical expenses, even for pre-existing conditions, as well as emergency repatriation, including helicopter rescue and air ambulance services if applicable. Personal liability coverage is also recommended. The Company also suggests coverage for trip cancellation, curtailment, loss of luggage, and personal effects. Travelers must carry proof of insurance and produce it if requested by the company employees or suppliers. Failure to provide proof of insurance upon request may result in the cancellation or suspension of participation in the trip or certain activities, even after the trip has commenced, without any right to a refund.

Ethic Himalaya Treks holds no liability for injuries, health conditions, emotional or other factors experienced by clients during the trip. Furthermore, our package cost does not encompass personal insurance coverage.

Well, there is no fixed rate for tipping in Nepal. When our field staff is picked up from the trek starting points, they will bid you goodbye on the last day of your trek completion day. Most staff will simply accept whatever you give and never count the money in front of you. Although your guide may be with you on the next day too, best to tip him along with others in the group. Most of the trekkers are still confused about the tipping amount. They fear either giving too little or too much. We have tried to put together a guideline about a reasonable amount of tipping suitable for most cases. The amount of tipping and the rates expected will also vary depending on the length of the trek and the challenges involved. To calculate the amounts generally applied, multiply the daily amount given to each position by the number of working days.

Daily amount per item:
  • English-speaking guide USD 3 to USD 4 per day/participant.
  • Porter USD 1 per day /participant.
  • Driver USD 1 to USD 2 per day/participant.

The tripping amount mentioned above is communally in the case of a group trip, not individually. If you are a solo traveler, the tipping amount can be slightly less by a few dollars per day.

Limi Valley Trek is a challenging and adventurous trek that takes you through the remote and stunning landscapes of the Dhaulagiri region in Nepal.
