HUMLA-Nepal’s Wild West

As part of this formidable Empire, Jumla was once administered from Sinja near Jumla. Until 1787, this empire extended as far south as Purang (Taklakot) and the ‘lost’ villages of Toling (Zanda) and Tsaparang, in a region of remote southern Tibet.

But also, This is a melting pot of traders and merchants from nearby countries, Indian, Chinese, Tibetan and Buddhist traders from Kashgar, Nepalese businesses trading wool, salt, and Indian goods, along with Chinese Government officials and a large army contingent.

For centuries, Humla has been involved in the trade of salt and grains with Tibet. Because of the import of Indian salt, most of Nepal has ceased to trade in this product.

Another reason for the loss of border trading posts is the Chinese government’s elimination of many in remote areas.
