Photos from the trek : Far Western Nepal (Bajhang to Humla) Trek Album- June 2018

Summary : This is a very remote trek across Bajhang and Humla Districts in Far Western Nepal, exploring the remote corners of Humla district, & a few border passes from Humla to Tibet. This is a journey across 4 high altitude passes ( Chaupha Col, Zimgang La aka Toibun, Nyalu La, Pt 5448 pass ), exploration of 4 passes leading to Tibet ( Thado La, Lapche La , Lolun Bhanjyan & an unnamed pass), a couple of beautiful high altitude glacial lakes (Karan Tal, Chhyolomyok Tal), several valleys ( Seti Nadi, Thado Khola, Phirankoph Khola, Syanban Khola, Karan Khola, Chungsa Khola, Talun Khola, Sakya Khola, Chyakpolun Khla, Nin Khola, Chuwa Khola) and majestic mountain vistas ( Phirankoph Chuli, North Saipal, Chang-la Himal). In this season, this is a walk along with goat/sheep herders and yak herders. For the devout this trek offers great views of the holy Mt Kailash and Mansarovar lake from Lolun Bhanjyang and an unnamed pass. For the wildlife enthusiast, there are hundreds, if not thousands of kiangs (tibetan wild asses), in the plains stretching beyond Takchche to the Tibetan borders & when these gallop in unison they are a sight to behold.
