  • trekking from Simikot to Mount Kailash

    I plan to go to Mount Kailash via Simikot, ideally in July. I know this corresponds to the mansoon season, which implies frequent landslides and stones falling down.

    However, seeing that Humla is pretty high and located in the far-west of Nepal, I wonder if rains will also affect this part of the country. For example, mansoon hardly reach Mustang. Is it the same for North-West of Humla district?
