Access to Simikot from developed parts of Nepal is mainly by air. Simikot Airport's relatively short 549 metres (1,800 ft) runway at nearly 3,000 metre elevation requires passenger planes with STOL characteristics such as Dornier Do 28 and de Havilland Twin Otter.
Roads from the south have only reached Jumla 86 kilometres (53 mi) to the southeast, however a rough road has been built from the Tibet Autonomous Region border crossing at Hilsa, 51 kilometres (32 mi) WNW
Simikot has two Community radio Stations: Radio Karnali Aawaj at 94.2 MHz and Radio Kailash at 103.4 MHz.
