Humla - Nyinba Heritage Home stay with Jungle Safari in Bardia
Deep within the most remote hills of North Western Nepal lives a magical land. Humla is a treasure trove for the explorer. Situated within the Hidden Himalayas this is a place few people know about. Covering an area of 5,655sq km, this region is home to a Tibetan community called the Nyinba. The district they inhabit is called Nyin, also known as “the sunshine valley of high elevation”. The Nyinba culture is the result of an eclectic mix of Thapalya and Khasa Shamanism and Tibetan Buddhism.
The culture here is captivating, the scenery and people are some of the most rewarding to be experienced throughout the whole of the Himalayas.
This trek is one of the shortest but also one of the most culturally rewarding into this region.Nyinba valley is made up of four villages, many of which are inhabited by Bhotia communities. The layout of these villages invokes much curiosity as the structure mimics the design of a Buddhist Mandala.
