Koran Valley : The Himalayan district of Humla is not only geographically inaccessible but also unique in terms of beauty, which is known as an eye-catching area by observing the natural beauty. Humla has been re-introduced in a few places through media and social media, while there are many other places where people have not been able to set foot. One of such places is Koran Valley i.e. Changla Bhanjyang.
The valley is located in the area of Dojam village of Simkot Gaonpalika-1. Starting from a distance of 20 and a half kilometers from the district headquarters Simkot, the end point of the valley is up to 80.5 kilometers. In ancient times, lightning struck the surrounding mountains. The name of the river is derived from a fallen mountain in the shape of a dragon. Also known as Lade Khola in Khas language.
Although it is a very important area in terms of nature and tourism, due to lack of publicity, the valley is always waiting for visitors and more information about this place will be further illustrated by the following picture.

This is a beautiful view of the lower Sanghu, which is found within a one and a half hour walk along the banks of the Lade River. The glacier that flows from above has a traditional wooden bridge. The wooden bridge across the blue river flowing in the middle of the green forest really brightens the lifestyle of our ancestors. Polkung is an area with a dense forest of pine pine trees that looks like a skyscraper. This place is also famous for its wild honey found in Gobre pine.

Valuable herbs like Satuwa, Panchaule, Poison, Wild Garlic etc. and wild animals like Navar, Musk, Snow Leopard etc. are found in abundance. Named after the Lama Kham language, this place is in Lazarus.
The locals say that it was named Lazarus because La means mountain and Jarma means river that flows from there. In other words, this place is also the entrance of Chanla Himal. This place is known as Demecho because of the lake formed by the river of snow flowing from above. Seeing the natural beauty of the place, the river that flows from above is also called Rakarbu.
