Humla District, Nepal – The trans-Himalayan village of Halji is a small collection of about 80 closely packed mud-and-stone houses at the base of a moraine hill.

Steep cliffs rise on either side of the village that is flanked by a glacial stream on its left.

By contemporary standards, Halji is extremely remote. It is snowed in and cut off for six months of the year during winter and does not have mobile network connectivity.  Click here to read the rest of this news article at Aljazeera.
