Limi valley Trek is the only remaining place where you can still witness the vibrant Tibetan culture and lifestyle, due to the matrimonial relationship between Western Nepal and Tibet. It is the ancient salt trading and pilgrimage route to the border of Nepal and China, crossing the Nara La pass (15,000ft/4,620m) and Nyalu La (16,000ft/4,900m) with spectacular views of the Himalaya. During this trek, you will have the chance to spot the elusive snow leopard, bharal (Himalayan blue sheep), jackals, kiang (Tibetan wild ass), and musk deer. Limi Valley Trek will take a total of 22 days, starting and ending in Kathmandu. The trek will take approximately 18 days, and will be moderate to strenuous, including high altitude trekking for many hours each day. The majority of this trek will take place above 10,000ft (3,000m), so you may feel the effects of elevation. The best season for this hike is from May to October, as the passes are likely to be covered in snow the rest of the year.
