Visit the impoverished far northwestern corner of the country, which was once a part of Tibet. The lifestyle and culture is very much different from any part of Nepal. The place offers a rich tapestry of geography and culture. The majority of the inhabitants are called Bhotias who originally migrated from Tibet. Sheep caravans are still a popular means of transportation. Trekking is most advisable during mid- May to October. The route remains closed during winter because of snow. Permit fees needs to be paid, as the region falls under restricted areas. In order to reach here you must first book your flight to Nepalgunj and then to Simikot.
