Nyinba Valley Trek

Trip duration : 13 Days Trip Grade : Easy

Geographically, the High Himalayas of Humla can be divided in two eco-zones. Upper Humla, with its high mountains and barren hills is home to the Jadan who are divided within 5 sub-ethnic Limi, Yultshodun, Trugchulung, Nyinba and Tsangba. Traditionally they are practitioners of fraternal polyandry a very effective practice aimed at curbing population growth and dispersal of land and possessions in an area of scarce resources - but now worth the passage of a time. There communities are slowly making a transition to monogamy. They are primarily farmers, livestock herders and traders. Due to the high alpine meadows and difficult terrain for farming, depend upon supplementary for their existence. They supply salt from Tibet to barter with grain from lowland Nepal so they have developed their life as Buddhists in Tibet and as Hindus in Nepal during winter, similar to the fungi called "Yartsa-gunbu" (which is a grass in summer and a worm in winter) which is common to this region. Our focal point is to Nyinba valley, its ancient culture and Humla's holiest peak Mt. Shelmo Kang. Shelmo Kang is said sister of Mt. Kailash. She has three brothers Mt. Kailash, Mt. Lapchi and Mt. Tsari and one sister Mt. Shel Ri. All are holy and blessed by Lord Buddha, Guru Pedma Shambava, Mila Repa and numerous followers since age.
