Upper Dolpo Trekking - 30 Nights/ 31 Days

One of the highest inhabited realms on the planet, Upper Dolpo is also still a stronghold of the pre-Buddhist, shamanistic Bon-po religion as well as Tibetan Buddhism. It is a tough, mountainous region of fortified villages, 'dzongs', turquoise lakes, sacred mountains and high passes, susceptible to heavy snows which isolate it from the rest of Nepal for much of the year. The rewards for trekking through Dolpo are immense...

Upper dolpo trekking begins with a spectacular flight along the Himalayas to Juphal. We head up the Suli Ghad River gorge to the stunning, turquoise Phoksundo Lake and cross our first 5000 meter pass leading to the fabled Shey Gompa and 'Crystal Mountain'. Another pass later, at scenic Saldang with its gilded gompa.we have an extra day to explore the surrounding, 'Tibetan' villages, busy with their autumn harvest.

Upper Dolpo TrekkingOur exploratory section starts here, as we head off the main routes to a region of 'pure Dolpo'. The trails connecting these remote villages and high passes are said to be some of the most interesting and stunning routes in Inner Dolpo. Lower, at Tokyu and Dho Tarap where the inhabitants still trade with Tibet along the old salt routes, we spend a day marveling at their ancient gompas and watching the bustling village life. We then head west, crossing the many high passes leading to Lower Mustang, a challenging but rewarding section with unbeatable Himalayan vistas.

Explore this hidden land of majestic beauty with mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

Upper dolpo trekking takes place in the north-west region of Nepal. Upper Dolpo is located in the Phoksundo National park of mid-western Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan plateau, cut off by a series of very high passes and closed by the snow most of the year. As Upper dolpo trekking is one of the remotest and least exposed areas of Nepal, and also naturally isolated by the difficult topography, it offers rare opportunities to explore near-virgin territory and meet people, almost unexposed to tourism. Because Upper Dolpo is so close to Tibet’s border, the people of Tibetan origin inhabit it. The trek provides chances to visit several unique monasteries (gompas).

Shey Phoksundo National Park (3555 sq km) of mid-western Nepal is focal point of Upper Dolpo, behind the Mount Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan Plateau. Upper dolpo part provides good habitat for snow leopard, blue sheep, Ghoral, Himalayan Black Beer etc.This rugged and remote Dolpo region remains a truly isolated corner of Nepal.

Unlike rest parts of Nepal, Dolpo area, shadowed from seasonal rain, is hard to match for its surreal beauty and stunning charm, no where to be found. Upper dolpo trekking region, we can find many cultural, religious and social life similarities between Upper Dolpo and Tibet. Dolpo region is thinly vegetated, dry and only fewer settlements are seen here, but a thrilling hardcore landscape, guarded by pristine snowy peaks. Other remarkable objects seen here are ancients and isolated villages, immortal to time, fabulous lakes, authentic Buddhist monasteries and abundant wildlife etc.

Mountain Sherpa Trekking is the best trekking company- A five-star recommendation to this company.

“They seemed very professional, and they proved to be that, and more. We were treated like kings, like visiting dignitaries. Family could not have treated us better. Upon our arrival, we were garlanded with marigolds; upon our departure, silk scarves were draped around our necks. We hired a guide and two porters, who became like family. Our well-being and satisfaction was their daily concern. When we had a minor problem, we just said to Dorji-our guide. He would make the necessary arrangements. It was worry-free travel. A five-star recommendation. ”
