Corona Update Nepal

Humla is viewed as one of the most remote and confined locales in Nepal, reachable just by foot or little airplanes which are unpredictably arriving in the area head quarter, Simikot. It is arranged high in the Himalaya, in the Karnali Zone, North-western Nepal, circumscribing the Tibetan Autonomous Region. Humla has a size of 5.655sq/km a populace of around 50,000 (2011).The locale is one of the most immature regions in Nepal with just a single medical clinic and grounds and barely any higher optional schools in Simikot serving the entire region. A large portion of the towns of Humla don’t approach power, correspondence (phone, versatile assistance, web), clean drinking water, qualified and great training, legitimate human services and so forth.

The normal elevation is about 3,000m above ocean level. Humla is the most elevated locale in Nepal, with most towns lying at about 3,000m-5,000m above ocean level. The atmosphere is brutal, with snow for as long as four months of the year. Just 1% of the land is arable, because of the rough landscape. There is essentially no water system, the dirt is poor, and the land is dry and parched. The developing season is short, all of which adds to low horticultural yields. Extreme food deficiencies are an aftereffect of populace development (because of absence of access to family arranging administrations), environmental change and poor soil richness. All things considered, most families just produce adequate nourishment for 3-5 months of the year.

The least fortunate gatherings in the public arena, for example, ladies, people with incapacity and low standing families face extra hardships. Little cabins, open flames and families living with the creatures on mud floors is the standard in the open country. The basic methods for transportation are donkeys which bring required items from the Tibetan outskirt to Simikot.

The locale headquarter of Humla is Simikot, at a height of 2945 meters. It is arranged high over the Humla Karnali River and is encircled by high snow-shrouded tops. Simikot is the portal to the Holy Mt, Kailash and Lake Manosarober trek, which takes around 3-5 days approach the Tibetan fringe.

Humla has two unmistakable countenances. Both of the appearances will blow your mind. From one perspective, Humla is an interesting and excellent spot where the nature’s actual endowments are as yet unblemished. Its frosty virus water is plentiful in minerals, the natural air is liberated from carbon monoxide, its hypnotizing scene brimming with known and obscure herbs and vegetations, and food developed in the district is 100% natural. However, then again, its segregation has pushed Humla a long ways behind from the remainder of the world. Disconnection and destitution in this delightful yet brutal Trans Himalayan mountains deny individuals of everything except their uncovered life in one sentense truth Humla is Middle of no where.

Humla has a local air terminal at Simikot, which is the just one way out structure here.It associate with Surkhet, Nepalgunj, and Kathmandu, the principle urban communities of the nation via air. Air separation among Nepalgunj and Simikot is 218 km. The Airport can just offer administrations to little airplane, for example, twin otter and helicopter because of its short runway. Air administration relies upon the climate of Humla and Nepalgunj , along these lines, associations are neither normal nor dependable.


The locale is difficult to reach by engine streets. The second and last choice to reach Humla is walking. In the event that one needs to reach Simikot by means of land, s/he needs to experience Jumla or Mugu locale. It takes one day by transport with unpleasant track street from Nepalgunj to Jumla/Mugu. What’s more, it needs 5 to 7 extra long stretches of trekking to reach Simikot from that point. Be that as it may, it is difficult to follow this course because of the complex land state of the locale. Karnali Curridoor and a street from Tibet to Simikot is still under development. It would be an achievement to interface this remote zone with the monster neighbor China/Tibet and the rest portions of the nation. The development works have begun, yet they are yet to be finished. So the individuals of Humla still dream to approach the advanced methods for transportation.

Humla is wealthy in common assets particularly woodland items, Non Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) and Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs). Because of the altitudinal and climatic variety, there are the accompanying sorts of timberlands: Coniferous Forests (48.80 %), Hard wood Forests (4.14%), Mix Forests (41.00 %) and Shrub lands (6.06 %). Numerous plants have therapeutic qualities, anyway endeavors for protection and information about their right use are required for their maintainability and the prudent improvement of the locale.

The investigation of District Irrigation Office in Humla shows that there are in excess of 50 streams in the area. The significant waterway is Humla Karnali. These waterways can possibly create hydropower upto 10,300MW. Be that as it may, these assets have not yet been investigated.
