    Simkot town: Curfew sometimes imposed in Simkot

    The main intersection in Simkot

    NB! THE INSURGENCY-RELATED CURFEW IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT. BUT BECAUSE OF OCCASIONAL POLITICAL FIGHTING IN SIMIKOT LEADING TO SHORT-TERM CURFEWS I KEEP THIS POSTED. CURFEWS MAY BE IMPOSED AT ANY TIME. ADHERE TO IT.

    Due to the insurgency there is a curfew in place in Simkot. The current curfew times are in effect: 19:00 pm - 05:30 am. You may get apprehended or even fired at if seen outside during these nighttime hours.

    Dress Code: During night, all cats are grey - that's the problem...

    Community halls in Til, Halji and Jang: Night life in the Limi Valley villages

    In Jang community hall

    The Limi Lama people are strong party goers. There is heavy eating and drinking, music and dancing in the community halls in all three villages. And it lasts way down into the night and can be rather on the frivoulous side. All generations parttake, though.

    Dress Code: Decent, not too gore-texy - that helsps the dancing appeal.

    Drinking establishments, homes, caravan camps: Drinking bouts?

    Household aperitif

    A colleague of mine figured scientifically that 1/3 of the grains produced in Humla went into alcohol production. These grains are rice varieties, barley, wheat and millet. The upper caste inhibitions on alcohol consumption are lost on most people in Humla and both alcoholism and milder drinking habits are commonplace. Enter a household and chance is you will be offered a drink with three bits of butter on the edge. You will invariably get served chang (dishwashing-water colour beer), rakshi (locally destilled booze - anything goes) and some wine-like products made from apricots.
    Coming in by air from lower Nepal there are numerous varieties of brandies and other hard liquor and beers. From Tibet there is a steady trickle of beer and bad brandies brough in by yak or sheep back in caravans.
    You will be able to get a drink at most non-ultra-orthodox homes of some economic standing, in drinking places in Simkot and by pre-order at guest houses.
