Mount Saipal is the Second Highest Peak in Far West Nepal

It stands at an impressive 7031 meters, it is a beautiful peak whether you view it from the east or the north. Both the East and North Saipal Base camp is accessible from Simikot. The East Base camp heads south from Simikot and makes a deviation through the steep-sided forested countryside.

This region is culturally and geographically isolated from the rest of the nation. This region’s broad and rolling passes (lekhs) are thickly forested with enormous Deodars (Cedar like trees), spruces and ancient blue pines. The Chhetris and Brahmins populate the villages nestling among them, and the other ethnic groups are the Thakurs and Bhotias. There is a particular cultural and economic interaction between Hindu and Buddhists unmatched elsewhere in the Himalayas.
