The Limi Valley, which is at high altitude and very narrow, is often known as the hidden Himalayan Vallety. It contains three villages set in the mountains, immensely beautiful and rich in biodiversity, and steeped in ancient culture. It is the most remote area in the Humla region of Karnali zone, north-west Nepal, and the least developed. It is this remoteness and inaccessibility that causes many of the difficulties for the people who live there: there are no roads. People have no option but to rely on a subsistence economy based on labor and with limited livestock. Only around 1% of the land is arable, such that cultivation of grain for food on any scale is not possible.

Til village is the westernmost of the three villages in the Limi valley; it is at an altitude of 3,870 m and lies close to the confluence of one of the tributaries to the main river in the valley bottom. The track linking Til with Simikot is the only one that lies entirely within Nepalese territory; the Nyalu La Pass on the track is snow-free and therefore passable only between about mid-April and mid-November. Like the other two villages in Limi, the language and culture are Tibetan, and the agricultural methods of local people are Tibetan. Barley, the main crop of the region, and small amounts of other crops, are grown on terraces formed in the sandy soils of the region.
