Upper Dolpo Trek


Upper Dolpo Trek

Overview

Dolpo region is situated between the Tibetan plateau and the Dhaulagiri ranges. The entire district was closed to trekkers until 1989 when the southern part of Dolpo was opened to organized trekking groups. Located northwest of the Dhaulagiri, in earlier years trekking tours usually only went through the "Outer Dolpo" between Phoksumdo Lake and the Tarap Valley, but we enter the northern area. Trekking along the tropical forests comprising pine trees savor the beauty of Phoksundo Lake and encounter the Bonpos at Ringmo.

We fly to Nepalgunj and then to Juphal from where we begin our trek in the Dolpo region which was made famous by Peter Matthiessen’s book - The Snow Leopard. As we trek through the heart of Dolpo we are presented with a variety of both scenery and people. From Magar villages with lush green paddy fields surrounded by dense jungles in the south of Dhaulagiri to Bhotia fortress hamlets and gompas (monasteries) amid barren, windswept hills. Crossing a series of high passes, the journey takes in Shey Gompa and the exotic villages set amidst the arid, remote highlands of Dolpo, making this a classic trek. Dolpo Trek is one of our best seller’s treks that extends to far-flung wilderness of western Nepal. Some of the oldest and most important monasteries like Shey Gompa are also exciting trek highlights.
