This trip is the shortest and yet one of the most culturally and scenically striking trips in Humla. The 'Nhin'(sun) valley is reached in a day walk from Simikot at elevations between 3000m and 4100 m.
Nyinba(Nhinba), a Bhotia community(in nepali; Bara-Thapalya), inhabit this valley.(Humla Bhotia is one of the many vernacular Tibeto-Burman languages lying on the southern slopes of the Himalayan mountain range. The language is classified as: “Sino-Tibetan, Tibeto-Burman, Bodic, Bodish, Tibetan, Central.) Nyinba ancestors moved from the north, into the Himalayas, from their arctic native place, ‘Zhang Zhung’, in the western Tibet, near Holy Mt. Kailash They moved into Humla, seeking the shelter of the Himalayan gorges. The Nyinba community consists of four villages; Tangshyod (Buraunse), Barkhang(Baragaon), Todpa(Torpa) and Nyimatang (Limatang), which are all around half to two hours walk, from the famous pilgrimage site, Raling Gompa."
The attractions are the unique village structure, the houses resembling a Buddhist Mandala and the culture, practiced within these villages that deeply carry the ancient pre-Buddhist tradition blended with the Buddhist culture and religion.
Mt Shelmogang(5300m), also known as Mount Crystal Peak, Raling Gompa and the Siddhi caves of Guru Rinpoche are some of the places to visit. The trail has been planned to visit Kharpunath temple where the Karnali from west Tibet and Chang/Dozam river meet, forming the main Karnali, the longest and holiest river of Nepal.
